They’re okay.  I like the food, I like catching up with people.  I almost always hate the music.  I’m also not into photobooths, though luckily very few weddings I’ve attended have had them.  I don’t like being ‘forced’ to act silly – I do it of my own accord or not at all.  

I wish people realized they don’t have to follow the same exact wedding plan – there is no rule about it.  We held half our reception prior to our ceremony because it made more logical sense.  We hung out chatting on couches.  My husband’s cousin caught a lizard and stuck it on my bouquet.  IMO, people need to start coloring outside the lines a bit more, rather than having cookie cutter pinterest perfect weddings.  It’s more fun!

The only weddings I’ve wanted to leave right away were those where I knew pretty much noone or those where the music sucked ass because I didn’t want to dance to it.  I can hang out and talk with old friends and family for hours though – wedding or other event, so I’m happy to stay awhile generally.  If I can hear.

Nope. I dont like weddings. They give me anxiety. I dont like dressing up, dancing and makimg small talk with a bunch of people. Not my idea of fun. I don’t like going to weddings. I hope I never get asked to be a bridesmaid… and the only reasons we are having a wedding is 1. Cause if we dont do it i feel like I will regret it (idk why) 2. My Fiance really wants to have a wedding. 3. My mom would lose it and I will never hear the end of it, since I skipped my prom… she had brough it up like a bazillion times since then… I cany get oit of having a wedding.. If it were 100% up to me we would just elope. Me and him and our dog on an island. No fuss, no people, no vendors, no logistics. None of that. We settled on having a medium (around 75 people) wedding BBQ at a cottage.

I love most weddings.

The only weddings I have been to and wanted to leave are the ones that go over dinner time (think 3pm/ 4 pm wedding to midnight reception) and the hosts only provide finger food that is enough for like 1/4 of the guests to have a light meal. THIS IS NOT OK!

Haha noooooo. I hate them all. I would not have had one except our moms would have killed us if we eloped.

Love wedding receptions, but not crazy about the ceremonies. It’s probably because I’m Indian and most of the wedding ceremonies I’ve been to are 45 minutes to an hour in length (and that’s on the shorter side)…like they can be so boring that my dad actually fell asleep in the middle of one last fall. Whoops. But as for the receptions, who doesn’t like getting dressed up and open bar and food and dancing and hanging out with all your friends?

I like them ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m disappointed there hasn’t been a lot of weddings in my circle. Not sure why I like them so much but I just do.  I get so excited to be invited to weddings. I’m over the moon if I get asked to be a bridesmaid–I am that one nosy bridesmaid that wants to help with EVERYTHING, trying not to out-excitement the bride.  I peruse wedding and bridal magazines for fun–Ironically I stopped doing this when planning my own wedding because wedding planning was stressing me out.

Nope, I’m not a big fan. Some I like more than others, either because of good food, good dancing, or just having my friends around. And of course being there with my husband makes everything more fun/enjoyable. But the main reason I don’t like them is WAITING SO LONG FOR EVERYTHING. Mostly due to pictures being taken between the ceremony and reception…a cocktail “hour” turns into at least 2 hours usually, and I’ve been to a few where there is just not enough room for everyone to sit. There’s only so much you can do in that time.

 

Also, my husband was a groomsman at 2 different weddings last year, and had to sit at the head table until after first dances, while I sat with other people. I really didn’t enjoy that undecided

I actually really dislike weddings, regardless of who’s they are. I didn’t even want to have a wedding of my own, but threw one for my family. I don’t use this site to read about wedding stuff, more about life stuff or home stuff or marriage stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

merighthere :   I don’t like long ceremonies with endless personal vows and exchanges of flowers, bread, lockets of hair, pieces of wood (yes, that ALL happened in ONE ceremony)!

I don’t like music so loud I have to scream and still cannot hear or be heard.

And I don’t like waiting until 10:30 pm for dinner to start when it was supposed to be at 6 pm.

Aside from that, I love the romance surrounding the event.  ๐Ÿ™‚

No, not usually. I like mingling and speaking to everyone and get a couple drinks. I don’t want to be the 1st to leave, but I don’t dance and I’m not a night owl kind of gal. And my FH is much less interested in going to weddings. All of our close friends got married before we met, so he will at least attend family weddings, but coworker or acquaintance wedding not likely.

Depends on the wedding, but usually no.  There are certain factors for me: I get pretty annoyed if there is a long gap with nothing to do, or if the couple doesn’t think out transportation between the ceremony and reception (especially for out of town guests).  Also, the food/cake needs to be good.

Depends on the wedding. One we went to dragged onnnnn they had lip singing with the dads and 20 toasts and prayers by the time we got to dancing the wedding was 30 mins till being done. Also they layout of the place kinda trapped us at our seats useless we wanted to walk through the “performances”.

I like weddings with good food, dancing, and photo booths(me and hubby do this regularly when we’re at zoos and theme parks). My cousin did have one in a aquarium almost a decade ago now but it was cool because you could go visit exhibits.
