None!  I’m 29 days away 🙂

But since we got engaged we have attended eight (8) weddings.  All last summer, and we even had a double-header one Saturday.

None? Except for a neighbor’s backyard reception I was invited to last minute, that last wedding I went to was when I was 11 :S

Between the time we got engaged and the time we got married, we attended 15 weddings. Holy cow!

We got engaged a year and a half ago and not ONE person has gotten engaged or had a wedding. 🙁

But there have been three new little cousins! Haha, so yay baby showers and babies!

We attended two last summer and we’ll be attending one in October. Three other friends got engaged since we did, so it’s possible other weddings will be planned to happen before ours.

Probably about 4 and I’m eager to attend them all.  I find some weddings provide inspiration, others what not to do, and sometimes illuminate pitfalls to watch for.

Unless I’m close to the couple and emotionally invested, I see it as a learning experience and start making mental notes from the moment I get to the ceremony until I leave the reception.  When I’m on the guest list just to add to the gift total, I make sure I learn and make it worthwhile.

We only attended 1 while we were engaged.  I felt a little bad because I *might* have been a little critical.  And apparently I have an expressive face.

I went to one when I was little. Everyone expected that we would be the first to marry within our group of friends, as we have been together the longest, but right before we got officially engaged then my best friend married. Then my cousin announced he would marry this summer. Then another friend marries this autumn. Then two more friends marry before our date in 2013. It must be our ages, I guess. We are all in our late 20s now… I suppose it’s just “that time” in all our lives.

It will probably amount to 5 before we are engaged…who knows how many after! I know that SO has been to far more than myself.

Only 1. I’m one of the last of my friends to get married.
