  • Wedding: April 2018

merighthere :  I’m not a very sappy or emotional person, but I loooove weddings!  I love the ceremonies, the speeches, the first dances, being a part of such a memorable day, getting dressed up, (usually) good food and drink, meeting new people, little kids in suits, bouquet tosses etc.  I’m pretty young so lots of the weddings I’ve been to have been extended family or my dad’s friends so I haven’t known many people or gotten many of the inside jokes, and even then I’ve loved them πŸ˜€

To me a wedding is like pizza.  Even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good πŸ˜›

They’re ok, but I really only like the hanging with friends/eating/drinking aspect and for that, I’d rather just casually get together without all the wedding stuff being involved.

  • Wedding: January 2017

I really do like weddings. I have only been to about 5 in the last few years, so it still feels new and exciting. As more of our friends are getting engaged and weddings will be our summer holidays, I’m sure the allure will fade. But even when I don’t know the couple, I still get teary eyed at the walk down the aisle and first/father-daughter dance. I love being around ppl in a celebratory mood. And you know, open bars and music.

It’s a no from me unfortunately. The first one was a novelty. But they are allll the same. At least 2 a year for the last few years has been a chore.

The dresses have all begun to look the same, the vows, the food (awful), the company all stiff and awkward in formal attire…it’s like displacing everyone into the 1800’s of formally and ceremony and no one is the same person anymore. The forced joviality. Eh. 

We eloped. And I actually originally came to this site to see why everyone else SEEMED to love weddings, but soon discovered (as evidenced by this thread) that I’m not in a minority group. I came for the insight and stayed for the people (and drama!)

  • Wedding: February 2017

I’m 50/50 I love the dressing up aspect. Not big into drawn out ceremonies. The food is probably my favorite part. One of the best weddings I’ve ever been too actually did a taco truck in lieu of the normal meal. It was pure amazement! I truthfully would have a smaller wedding if it were up to me but fiance wanted bigger and I wanted a Harry Potter theme so we compromised

Yes, but my circle is a big fan of short wedding ceremonies. I’ve only been to one wedding that had a ceremony longer than 15 minutes. We’re reception people.

Not a fan. Every ceremony I’ve been to bored me to death. Honestly I could care less about how the couple met (including family and friends), funny stories between the two that aren’t funny to anyone else, terrible poems expressing undying love and all that other sentimental gibberish meant to bring a tear to my eye (bleck) or the novel of vows some feel the need to write. We are planning to get this done in 10 minutes or less with photos after during the cocktail hour in 30 minutes or less. I’m trying to have a couple cocktails myself. πŸ˜€ There are only 7 specific photos I’d like with Fiance following the ceremony. Never liked taking pics and there is no need for me to have hundreds of photos put in an album I’ll likely never look through more than once. However, I do generally enjoy receptions. Dancing isn’t my thing but I like mingling with friends and loved ones. Food was always good but it seems like I got lucky there. Only one of the three weddings I’ve attended had the blaring music which I didn’t care for personally. I’d like ours to be light background noise for the most part not loud enough to drown out conversation.

  • Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom

It depends for me. I have anxiety disorder and weddings can be a huge trigger mine field. I was at my friend’s wedding a few years back and there was this game everyone got roped into playing where all the couples had to go up in front of everyone to kiss. I REALLY don’t like being the centre of attention, and I find PDA a little embarassing…but I was pressed into playing by the groom’s sister AKA the MC who was unaware of my anxiety issues (and kind of a bitch because I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t into it)…and I had a mini-panic attack afterwords.

I also once got followed around at a wedding by the photographer because it was his part of his instructions to get at least one ‘good’ candid shot of everyone…I was also trying to hide the fact I’d recently fallen off the wagon and started smoking again…I felt like every time I tried to have a moment alone he’d pop out of nowhere with his camera. My nerves got pretty shot and he didn’t end up getting the photo he wanted of me anyways because in all of them I looked startled or had my back to him.

I love weddings! I love the ceremony, the reception, everything. I’ve never had a bad time at a wedding and I love seeing my friends so happy. I honestly can’t think of one wedding I attended that I didn’t have a good time – even the ones with gaps or cash bars or even the one with no food. The etiquette faux pas will make me roll my eyes but I think I’m too much of a sucker for the love & happiness to have it ruin my good time.

I haven’t attended many in my life, I admit. The ones I did attend were super religious ones – the kind that involves a 2-hour+ church service mixed in. Not fun. So I haven’t attended one I liked, but my experience has been very narrow.

Usually I’m not a fan of weddings. When I know the couple really well, I often find the ceremony to be very sweet and touching, but the receptions are always soooo long. Our reception is going to be 3.5 hours, which I still feel is pretty long! But, oh well. If people want to leave our wedding early, we definitely wouldn’t be offended. πŸ™‚
