    @angelalsmith3:  My Grandfather is 92 years old, he can still drink me under the table and dance like the devil….if you wanna get down, age has nothing to do with it, the party comes from inside honey!

    I’m 33 and my husband was 37 when we got married this past April.  We didn’t get to bed until around 5:00am on our wedding night.  I think the open bar had more to do with it than age lol.

    Good booze, a good dj, and a sitter for the kids should take care of it!

    I don’t think it’s an age thing as much as a social circle sort of thing. I’m 34 and my friends with kids are all getting baby sitters or having their kids stay with family/friends so they can party all night. My family with kids are doing the same thing, all kids having sleepovers with friends so they can drink and party as much as they want to.

    I think at every wedding there are a few couples who leave early, but most people stay for the whole thing. And dance 🙂

    I guess I’m going against the grain on this one. We are in our 30s, we have a kid, and we’ll be in bed by 11 at the latest. Sorry, but we just don’t hang anymore. When my girls and I head out for dinner, we’re paying the check no later than 9:30pm so we can all drive home and get some sleep before the kiddos wake in the morning. It’s just how it goes. OP, don’t take it personally if yopur friends go home early. It’s not because your party sucks. It’s just because their life and schedules are different than yours.

    FWIW, we kicked out our childless friends at 11:30pm because Mr. LK and I were exhausted and needed to get some sleep on our wedding night. All of our family and our friends with kids had left by 10pm.

    @FauxBoho:  +1

    @angelalsmith3:  I agree with others who say that kids & social circle may be the deciding factor on when folks leave.

    My BF will be 41 when we get married, as are alot of his friends should they attend….and I *promise* someone will pass out into the pool :-p They don’t drink alot but when they do, they live it up. I’d say half of them have families and will get a sitter and the other half are still bachelors/bachelorettes 🙂

    Our wedding ended a little bit early, DH and I are both in our 30’s, not because we didn’t want to party. Mostly because most of our guest list were a much older crowd.  I would have loved to have partied all night, but alas I was pregnant and couldn’t drink and was to wore out to do much more than dance here and there.  My DH partied hard lol though.
