A couple weeks ago went to a BEAUTIFUL WEDDING, BEAUTIFUL DECOR, ELEGANT …..but was a bit boring, music was not good, and many were just sitting there. But worse is bride and groom were separate all the time. He seemed to be off with his buddies drinking most of the time, groomsmen pushing him for shots, while she, the bride, greeted everyone and walked around. I found that rude of him. By the end of the night, while everyone is leaving, he was drunk and shes (in her gorgeous ball gown) sitting alone waiting about 30 minutes for him to say bye to his friends so they can take off. Beautiful wedding, beautiful bride, but douche bag of a groom. Have you guys ever been to a wedding like that?

Ugh. No fun. We went to a wedding where the groom was dancing the whole night and the bride came out for like 2 dances and was missing from the room for the majority of the night. Turned out she was puking in the bathroom. Classy. I did not drink much at my wedding because I dreaded any scenario where one of us would be incapacitated.

Haha my DH spent a good portion of our wedding outside smoking and talking with various groups of people while I was inside dancing. It was like two weddings in one — the outdoor chat-fest party with the groom, and the indoor dance-fest party with the bride! I guess that’s a little different than what you’re describing though. By the very end of the night we were both drunk and screaming along with every song that came on. Good times

@SamanthaLovesJames: If you weren’t in TX, I’d think we were at the same wedding. I have been to one very similar. No one was dancing, despite our best efforts to get everyone else up. We only got the bridal party and their dates, and one sister up dancing.
The aunt of the bride actually came over and turned off the Ipod. She said it was too loud, and she wanted to be able to talk to people without having to listen to music.
At the end of the night one of the BMs asked the groom and GM to help clean up (we had to take everything down) and they basically told her to go F herself. And stayed outside boozing and smoking. They didn’t help one iota.
But it was a beautiful event, and the pictures are amazing.

Actually, my husband and I didn’t spend a lot of time together on our wedding day. We had a lot of friends and family come in from out of town, so we mingled with everyone, sometimes together, sometimes apart. I don’t drink and my husband loves craft beers so he was drinking with his friends and family while I chatted with mine! It worked out perfectly for us. We were together for the important parts, but other than that we were perfectly happy being apart!

@SamanthaLovesJames: I’m not sure he’s a douchebag for it, but yeah, he should have greeted the guests along with her. Aside from that though my DH and I spent a good deal of the reception apart – dancing, mingling with friends, hitting the photobooth – I don’t think there was anything wrong with each of us spending time with our friends & family members that came a long way to celebrate with us. My question is where the heck were the bride’s friends that she was so lonely on her wedding day?

@reebee: I didnt’ get to meet him all night, not my entire family, he kept to his group. She was so sweet. At the end, seemed like he kept telling her to wait, she was ready to go. I was shocked, all her friends at this point left. She was frustrated waiting alone for half an hour that she literally yelled at him, “let’s go” or I’m leaving without you. Yikes, what a way to end the night.
