The first wedding we had after ours was a family wedding about a year after.  It was fun and made me think, gosh our wedding was awesome!  LOL  it also made me a little sad because it felt like we officially passed on the newlywed crown.

We just went to the first wedding after our wedding last weekend… and it was so weird to see MR. & MRS. hisfirstname ourlastname on our placecard! It was fun, but I couldn’t help mentally comparing their wedding to ours, since they were less than 2 months apart!

Ah the first wedding we went to after ours was amazing. We didn’t have to worry about details or over-analyze anything. We were just guests and it was so nice! Plus…I’m with 7SEVENJ9 – the place card was the best part!

I know what you mean. We went to a wedding 2 weeks after ours. I’ll tell you it was REALLY nice to be a guest! ๐Ÿ™‚ And this couple had attended our wedding so it was kind of sweet to be at theirs 2 weeks later.

The first wedding we went to was 8 months after ours and it was my cousin’s wedding.  I love weddings but it was even more fun because I was now one of the married people, but I do have to say that my mom, Darling Husband and I made several comments about how that could’ve been done better or that didn’t look quite right, or how awesome our wedding was compared to that one!  It was a beautiful wedding once you got over how hot it was at the ceremony and at the reception, but I think we all think ours was better in one way or another:)  We actually have our 3rd wedding to go to since we’ve been married tomorrow night, the third cousin actually!  Glad I had mine all to myself!

The first wedding we went to as newlyweds was less than 3 weeks after ours, and I had mixed feelings just like you. I guess I felt I wasn’t ready to give up the feeling of being “bride” yet. But you know what? It was great. I was so happy for the couple, loved seeing all the little details, and LOVED being a guest and getting to just eat, drink and dance without having to mingle with everyone or worry about a thing. I think once you get there, you will have lots of fun.

we went to our mutual friends wedding just under a year after ours, and had never been to one before ours (except family before we were together).  Honestly, I liked ours a lot more, but to each their own, cuz they loved their wedding.

We had a great time at the first wedding after our wedding, but we were both friends with the couple and had a ton of mutual friends in attendance. I could see it being different if you won’t know many people there. Try to have a good time, I bet you will.

I had a friend tell me once that the first wedding you go to after your wedding is the best wedding you’ll ever go to 9except yours, of course).  You get to relive some of the great parts of your wedding, like dancing together, without all the stress of making sure everything is perfect.  And you get to eat and enjoy the food.  have fun, enjoy being married,  and just enjoy the day.
