THE AVERAGE BRIDE IS 30:

The typical first-time bride is now 30-years-old when she walks down the aisle, official figures have revealed. Women today are on average nearly eight years older than their mothers were when they married for the first time. In 1970 the typical first-time bride was 22. By 1991 she was 25, and by 2000 the average age rose to 28. Men are also older before they tie the knot. The typical groom is now just past his 32nd birthday when he marries for the first time.
