I have never been to a wedding where people have more than one dress throughout the night. Though according to this board and all the magizines I keep reading this is pretty common. I had no idea there was such a thing as a ‘reception dress’ until recently, most people where I live are just extatic to have a dress at all.

I’m with you on the Vienese hour! I must have been watching that same 4 Weddings marathon. I had never heard of it before then!

1) …the dinner was buffet

2) …there was not a seating chart

3) …had a cash bar


But this will change soon since all the weddings out here seem much different (from CT). Whenever I go to a wedding with DH’s family this will change.

I second #2 and #4 on your list! 

I’ve never been to a wedding were the Bride and Groom had a first look.  There has always been at least an hour or two between the ceremony and reception and everyone lived.  

I’ve never been to a wedding with a desert bar…  mine will be the first! 

I’ve never been to a wedding with a photobooth

I’ve never been to a wedding that had a rustic chic ‘theme’…  mine will be the first!

I’ve never even heard of a viennese hour before.  I just had to google it. 

Until I was an adult, I had never been to a wedding with a sit down dinner.  I thought only rich, fancy people had them.  All of my Southern friends had cocktail style receptions.

I like this thread! I think sometimes all of the details we see here from many different weddings make me feel like I need all of those details in my ONE wedding, lol.

Never have I ever (been to a wedding where there was):

A viennese hour (had to google)

A second dress

A first look

A candy bar

A photo booth

Save the dates

Ice cream bar/coffee bar/late night snack

A dollar dance

A Cocktail hour

A design element that made it look like something out of a magazine

not a happy bride


And all of the weddings I have been to were lovely and memorable simply because of the nature of the occasion!

…with a dollar dance.

I know it’s regional, but they aren’t done here and I’d kind of like to see how it works.
