    We also had pretty much the same experience as you. It didn’t bother me that much, but I do wish we had more time together at the reception.

    That’s often how we roll at big social events, but we both decided that we wanted to have memories of our reception that involved actually spending time with our new spouse and that we’d make a concerted effort to stick together.  We still ended getting separated for much of the time, probably 1/3, but we tried to spend most of it together.  We’ve been together for a long time, so all our friends are mutual and we’re really tight with each other’s families – so there wasn’t as much “my friends” and “his friends”.
