Yes, I got married in Vegas! Seems like around every corner there was a bride and groom! I loved it though, I pointed every single one out to my hubby and went “Awwwww!” I really wanted to take pictures of them all but he told me I couldn’t take pictures of strangers–kind of weird I know–but I was really in a happy marriagey place at the time.

For such a small Iowa town, I ran into several brides on my wedding day.  When I went to double check on my wedding coordinator, there was a bridal party there taking pictures at MY venue.  In my head – I got all bridey and wanted these people away from MY venue – I paid for it – not them! However, in person I went over, congratulated them, and explained that this was my place so please take pictures and move on.  Then when we were taking pictures a few hours later, a BUS drives up and unloads a ton of wedding people.  I was kind of pissed at this point since we were trying to get our pictures in.  I made my wedding coordinator explain that to them and they were upset because the only place we were not taking pictures was in a muddy/dirty area.  I felt sort of bad, but that’s why I paid for the location – it was so beautiful.  Later, before they left, the bride and one of her maids was in the bathroom and they were picking through my bathroom basket – I said something at that point – so not cool.  I congratulated her and asked that they please leave the things I had out for MY guests alone.  They huffed out.I probably handled it wrong, but what is up with people going into a building that says PRIVATE PARTY and digging through my stuff?!

I only saw one other bride during my wedding.  It was right after the ceremony, DH and I walked down to check out the reception room and there was another bride.  I think there may have been one at the hotel we went to after but I cant remember 🙂

I saw another bride from a distance.  Her wedding party was taking pictures on a university lawn near the church where we were getting married.  My husband and I are pretty mellow and have very simple tastes, and this bridal party had hot pink BM dresses, matching ties for the GMs, and a Hummer limo!  It cracked me up b/c a few of our guests said they saw them from a distance and were confused b/c they assumed they were us!

I did!  As I was printing out my vows in the hotel lobby, another bride walked by telling her MOH how she was worried about her vows.  I yelled- I’m printing mine right now for the ceremony in a few hours!  We bonded.  Also saw another wedding in the distance down on the beach near our reception.

We took pictures on campus (we had our wedding at the student union of our alma mater) and there were 2 other wedding parties having their photos done at the same location.  Luckily, the photographers were pretty nice to one another, so we were able to trade locations and get the shots we wanted.  Also, totally randomly, an aquatintace of my husband’s wedding reception was down the hall from ours!  We had our photos taken with them, which was kind of fun.  People were laughing that there were two brides and two grooms!

I didn’t exactly run into them, but we found out when we got to our reception hall that there was another wedding going on in a tent outside.  I didn’t make time to stop over or anything though.

There were 2 other weddings booked at our ceremony the day of our wedding. We were the first wedding and we didn’t finish with pictures until 2 hours after the wedding so we saw both other couples.

I didn’t run into another bride, but there was a wedding taking place at the hotel where we were staying… As my husband and I were walking into the hotel to head up to our honeymoon suite, a woman saw me and said with a heavy sigh and a lot of irritation, “aNOTHER bride?” That kind of bugged me.

The cool thing about getting married at city hall is that you *do* see other brides and grooms. It made me kind of giddy/happy, like we were all in a big marriage conspiracy together.
