I got married last July, and the first wedding we’ll be going to as a married couple is on May 1. I absolutely love the bride and groom, but I’m unnaturally excited about the wedding, I think. I bought my dress in January and have been thinking about accessories, etc.
Is anyone else having trouble reigning it in for other people’s weddings now? I keep trying to remind myself that I don’t NEED new jewelry for every wedding because I bought new jewelry for MY wedding!

My SIL is getting married in June, and my best friend if officially “waiting” now – they bought the ring but she wants the surprise proposal, go figure!
Anyway, I am sooo excited for them; I keep doing research for dresses that would suit them well, ideas of style, etc. And it’s not like I was into planning for my own wedding – we chose a Destination Wedding for many reasons, one being the aversion to planning. I guess once mine is done, there is no more stress associated with planning a wedding and I can look into many cool details and get excited without the pressure.
Well, I have started thinking about what I’ll wear to the June wedding… It will be a low-key affair, so I don’t have any reason to buy a new dress… maybe just the shoes then?

Definitely new shoes!
I had a dress in my closet for the May wedding, but then I discovered that black is a no-no for cultural reasons, and I started worrying about finding something in my price range that I loved and that wasn’t black. And once I had the dress, I bought new shoes. Then I made a shawl, and used leftover fabric to make a clutch. It’s a dirty spiral, I tell you!

I can’t wait to go to a wedding as a married couple. I won’t have to stand up for the bouquet toss anymore. Hoorary. I wish we had an upcoming wedding to attend. I love weddings.

My Future Sister-In-Law is actually getting married 4 months after us, so it will be our first wedding as a married couple! I’m excited, although it helps to not stress about hers b/c I’ve got enough worrying and planning to do with ours, plus I’m also a Bridesmaid or Best Man in her wedding, so pretty sure my attire won’t be so much to stress about. But if it keeps you interested and excited for the upcoming wedding, why not?

I went to a wedding a month after mine and I was so excited! I had bought a dress to wear to our rehersal dinner but didn’t get a chance to because we ended up running around the day of, so I was literally in a t-shirt and jeans 🙁 …but I surely got to wear my dress at their wedding and look absolutely fabulous! I even wore the necklace that I bought to wear the day of that I forgot!

I have ALWAYS been wedding crazy. I go to so many I am like a professional wedding guest. I love everything about them. Picking out the perfect dress, perfect gift, doing my hair, CAKE!, dancing, mingling. Sigh….

We haven’t been to any yet, but one of my cousin’s is getting married in June and one in August and then a couple more are engaged and not sure on when they are getting married yet!!! I can’t wait! I am most happy about not having to get up and do the bouquet toss!!!! I’ve always loved weddings, but it was always a little depressing knowing that I didn’t have anyone at those times. But now I get to enjoy all of the wedding!!! Bring them all on!!!!

I love weddings.. I can’t wait to go to my brother’s wedding, and my cousin’s weddings, and my MOH’s wedding. They say that when someone in the family or circle of friends, or church members get married it creates a chain reaction…. So that’s what we are hoping for!

I’ve never been to a wedding before, and I’ll be the first of my family or friends, so I’m NEVER going to attend a wedding where I’m not already married. : I didn’t think about the bouquet toss either, but I guess I’ll never get to catch one.

One of my close friends got married a few months after I did, and I was a bridesmaid. It was really fun! It was kinda strange too as we were looked at as a “married couple” and got to do the sweetheart dance (all the married couples start dancing, then the DJ tells people to sit down if they’ve only been married X number of years until the couple who has been married the longest is the last one standing).
