    Yes, I and most people I know like them!

    It's only fun if you're really close to the person.

    Eh, I'm not a big fan.

    The males don't usually get it, but most females do.

    I love attending weddings. Most people I know feel the same. I’ve only come across one single person who doesn’t, but they are the type to not like anything like fun and want everyone else around them to be miserable, but most people are not like that.

    I love going to weddings, and one of the things that I look forward to about my own is that my relatives will all be able to come to it!  This might not sound like such a big deal, but it really and truly is a major happening.  The last fun event that all sides of my family were invited to was my parents’ wedding, and I wasn’t born yet!  I’m an only child so it’s kinda like a once in a lifetime thing.  The only other events that some members of both sides of my family have been at have been my grandparents’ funerals.  My relatives live at such distance from one another that getting everyone together is really an unusual occurance.  My cousin got married this summer and that part of my family got all together for the first time in 20 years…  We had a grand reunion as well as a fabulous time at the wedding!

    Um, yes! I like weddings! For DH he likes it more if he really knows the couple but we both enjoy going out and socializing with friends and more often than not a wedding is a great way for us to see people who don’t live in the city or who work different job hours than we do.

    There are a few things I really don’t like about weddings.

    • Trying to find two locations I have never been before.
    • Being hungry for hours while the wedding party takes pictures.
    • Weddings that don’t even have a cash bar so you can’t even get a soda.
    • All of the waiting around for things to happen.
    • A long receiving line.
    • An “open bar” with only beer.
    • A wedding with no vegetarian meal option

    So I made sure to have my wedding ceremony and reception at the same place and to take pictures before the ceremony so guests didn’t have to wait around for anything. Plus, I served the cake buffet style all night so ppl could have cake whenever they want and choose which kind they wanted and take more than one piece. I had a candy buffet, bathroom baskets, and flip flops for the dancing floor to try to make the wedding better for guests. I couldn’t afford an open bar but I had a cash bar and free punch, water, iced tea, and coffee for guests.

    I like going to a really well planned wedding where the guests were kept in mind during the planning process.

    I LOVE weddings!  There is nothing like sharing in others’ joy, and being in the presence of true love.  I would have fun even if I knew no one!

    hmmmm. I love love. I love seeing people happy and joyful and in love. So I love wedding ceremony’s. The whole shebang I don’t get too excited about. Which is why I never accept being invited to reception only. That bugs me…I want to be invited to the REAL part; the ceremony!
