- Wedding: March 2014
Curious about this because of an article I read on a local wedding site about a groom who’d never been to a wedding before his own! I know my FH has only been to a cousins two years ago, and my friend’s last year (even though he hadn’t even met her before her wedding as she only recently moved over here! lol)
I feel like a wedding pro in comparison 🙂 I’m almostt the youngest of a lot of cousins… on my dads side they’re all at least 12 years older than me, my oldest cousins on my mum’s side are 15 years older and I was invited to all seven of theirs, plus my brother’s! Given the drama I read on here about cousins etc, I guess I should count myself pretty lucky. At the very first one I attended I was apparently a pretty cute six year old flower girl 🙂
Even though we all grew up in Auckland (NZ) mine will actually be the third held in Australia… on my dad’s side five of the seven grandkids all live in Australia now.
That said, compared to some people we haven’t really hit the stage where all our friends are getting married, so my bridesmaid’s is the only recent one I’ve attended. Other friends of ours got married after us and are getting married in October though! They’ll be the first of our wider friend group.
What was/is your prior experience with weddings?
