It’s too bad the photographer excuded the “I told you so” attitude! I would hate that because I don’t want to do a first look.

Did your reception immediately follow the ceremony? If my ceremony was at 6:30 and started late I’d feel cheated out of time at our own reception–that’s the most expensive part!!!

It’s too bad these guests only came to the ceremony too…did you not have a recieving line right after?? I really don’t think we’re going to spend a ton of time greeting guests individually except for the recieving line. I don’t know if that that’s bad etiquette or whatever.

I was at a wedding where the bride and groom dissappeared in the middle of the reception. We’re like…where did they go? It wasn’t until later when we were looking at their wedding album that we figured out they had been stolen away by the photog. They got some awesome night time pics though! I think that’s totally cool but I wouldn’t want to miss too much of my reception for that.

If I can just offer my two cents…I hope you don’t keep feeling bad about it. I really feel like people love to go to weddings to celebrate the couple getting married. I really don’t think that means everyone expects to have a lengthy conversation with the bride and groom. So if they were there to witness your marriage ceremony and had a nice time eating, drinking and dancing at your reception, that counts as celebrating the occasion with you or in your honor even if you weren’t by their side while so doing.

Why don’t you contact the people that you missed? You could make dinner plans or just write them a special thank you note.
