To each their own!

I have never, ever “hated” a wedding!

Gotta bring a positive attitude along.

I’ve never “hated” a wedding because of it’s style. I’ve really disliked some weddings I’ve attended, but that was more due to lack of planning on their part and how disorganized everything was.

I’ve never been to a wedding I didn’t like!  The last one I went to was super small and simple, nothing unique or fancy or DIY…  but everyone had fun and drank too much. That’s all you need! 

I’m glad you raised this issue though, since what I’ve realized is, lurking around wedding boards and blogs makes you more judgmental!  I have had at least 10 people now tell me when I said I was getting married, “Oh! My friend did the most unique thing!! They did this thing called a photobooth, and…”  I always roll my eyes, since it’s not unique at all anymore, but ya know, to people who go to maybe 1 or 2 weddings a year, it IS still unique and they do still love it.  Trust me, whatever you do, your guests are not wedding blog connoiseurs and they’ll love it.  You don’t need to invent a whole new genre in wedding style for your guests to have a good time.

@Flippy2013:  I’ve just started realizing this too – from hanging around on these boards, voraciously devouring wedding blogs, and trolling Pinterest for the last 8 months, I feel like i’m pretty well versed on what’s really trendy for weddings right now. So, when i mention incorporating something that I think is fun and that’s popular right now, it surprises me when my fiance or unmarried friends look at me with question marks in their eyes. It’s kind of nice though, because it means that what I think is maybe too popular or overdone will still be new and fresh to a LOT of my guests. It’s a nice feeling to come to that realization!

I’ve been to a couple of REALLY gorgeous Indian weddings. I think I have a photo of the backdrop for one of them…

It was SOOOOOOOOO beautiful and unique! Another friend of mine had her wedding in an art gallery which was really modern and funky. I’ve been to banquet halls and event spaces, yacht clubs, historic buildings, and barns… Each of them reflected the couple which is what I loved about them! To me, it’s what each couple does to make their wedding about them and their relationship, and celebrating with them. I would happily go to a wedding every weekend if I could, LOL!!

I’ve never been to a wedding as an adult, just two elopements.

So this is allllllllll on me lol. FI’s never been to a wedding as an adult either. So oddly, I’m having the “biggest to do” wedding yet.

I’ve happened to be at two “circus weddings”. Which are not at all what you think.

Once apon a time I may have been a sideshow performer, I performed at more proms then weddings. 

So I just went with what made us happy, We’re both Irish and vintage nerd geeks (yes I know the etimology of the word geek and find it hilariously fitting).  He picked me up on our first date on his cafe racer kawasaki, and (no shit) took me to the local malt shop (I didn’t know we even had one!). 

Yeah, I have his class ring on my necklace. And his lettermen’s jacket (totally dug those out of his Mom’s storage!).

How were we NOT going to have a vintage wedding?

@Flippy2013:  I agree that I’ve never hated a wedding I’ve been to, and also that planning my wedding and spending time on the bee does make me more judgmental. 

I’ve been honored to be a guest at all of the weddings I have been to, and think that each of them reflected the couple’s style very well – whether or not it’s in my taste. I’ve taken tips and ideas from all of them too. That’s not to say that I haven’t made “judgments” at them as well (with the centerpieces weren’t so high that I couldn’t talk across the table, etc.) and I’m not proud of that, but it has (hopefully) helped FI and I shape our wedding into the perfect one for us.

I was in a wedding a little over a year age with a peacock theme to it, and I thought it was so cool and I loved the bright colors together. It was totally DIY, backyard, and family oriented. DH and I went to it together ( I as a bridesmaid, and he as a guest) and we had such a blast!

 

 

 

 

The dress I wore: I thought the colors really popped and even though the fit was’t my fav– it all came together nicely!

@mandypop:  Hilarious! I went to a friend’s Indian wedding last year and it was amaaaazing. So colorful and gorgeous. Her hubby rode in on a horse!!

BTW, though, do you know what I HATE? I HATE when people don’t know how to spell words in the English language, like “vicious,” “truly,” “colander,” “seething,” “even-keeled…”

@mandypop:  LOL!!! Okay, these weddings weren’t elephant over the top, but they were still outstanding by their own rights! All the events leading up to the actual day were so neat too! And don’t get me started on the food…. Mmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!! I’m very proud to own two saris now 🙂 I actually wore a sari as a bridesmaid at another wedding! The bride wasn’t Indian though, she said we could wear whatever we wanted, and one of the other bridesmaids was Indian and said she felt most comfortable in a sari, the bride thought that was awesome and we should all wear them! I swear there were more people taking photos of the bridesmaids than the bride and groom though Undecided

I have never been to a wedding I didn’t like. I love seeing every couples unique styles and ways of doing things. I have been to A LOT of weddings in the past few years and it just blows my mind how, even when there are a few similarities, each is very different. I hope others will feel the same about mine.
