Hmmm I probably love going to weddings because I can see what they did with the details (like flowers, cake, decorations etc) and how they did it, what priorities they put their effort into, and feel, as a guest, if I enjoyed the whole atmosphere and why. I love looking at pretty things and weddings are almost always full of pretty details. I also love figuring out what were not too well done and tell myself to not repeat that mistake (for example at some weddings I attended the music was much too loud and it was so difficult for guests to talk and catch up with each other)

(so that I can plan the perfect wedding that most if not all guests will love!)

I’ve also attended some much more simple generic weddings without a coordinating theme or lack nice decorations…it wasn’t that fun to me then so I just turn up for the food (which is often not that great either). I get that these couples could be on very low budget so I don’t mind, just I don’t enjoy myself that much.

merighthere :  i love weddings!!! i’ve only been to one wedding that wasn’t really my cup of tea but i only knew the bride and one of her bridesmaids and literally no one else. there was a dj but he only played really slow songs so no one danced. the energy was just kind of low and weird. they ended up getting divorced like 3 months later, obviously not because of the wedding but i just wondered when i found that out if maybe i didn’t have a good time because i was picking up on their weird energy or something. 

in general i love weddings and i’m super excited for my friend’s wedding next summer. that said i’m not one of those girls with a million best friends so maybe i’d feel differently if i’d been to like 7 weddings in the last year (like one of my friends).

I love a good wedding. Especially one with good booze (not fussed who has to pay for it). 

Our friends all throw kickass weddings, and all of them have been different. I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for the first time ever last year for my best friend and it was wonderful. We had so much fun! And my other close friend who was also a Bridesmaid or Best Man got married a couple of weeks before and that wedding was also amazing. I have never cried so much at weddings! The thing that really got me going at the first one was that it was the first wedding I’d been to since the legalisation of same sex marriage in the UK, so the declaration now says that “marriage is between two people” – it was so wonderful to hear that from the registrar.

I like them in general but now we have a child and finances are tighter I find them tough financially. The last one I drove and drank water.

Venues here (uk) rip people off with their alcohol prices. Basically expensive venues offer fantastic packages to the happy couple then recoup the cash from guests on the day via alcohol.

I have a love-hate relationship with weddings. I love seeing the love between the couple, catching up with people I don’t get to see often and getting all dressed up. However, I hate loud music. It gives me a headache and once it starts I can’t talk to people anymore without having to scream. I’m also not much of a dancer so I spend the latter part of receptions bored. I’m clearly in the minority in not liking loud music/dancing though.

Some are okay, some are not. Lol

I hate weddings where you know the bride/groom and no one else. I hate dancing! I hate when everything is very disorganized or no food is served (around dinner).  I hate all the small talk..

I’m not really a fan… But then, I don’t drink and hate dancing, so it’s probably not surprising. 😛 Also, for some reason all the ones I’ve been to have had ceremonies that have dragged on… And on… And on…

I like them but I HATE being a part of them.  I like dressing up with Darling Husband, drinking, dining, teeeny tiny bit of small talk, and dancing, and then leaving.  I hate pictures, family etc.  I hate plated dinners. I also don’t like large weddings, like over 50 really LOL.  I am inpatient and don’t like waiting in line for food, drink, or the photobooth haha!

I love any event with an open bar that isn’t a funeral.

I love weddings! I have never had a bad time at a wedding… Even the bad ones. Free food, booze, dancing, smiles, laughter, socializing, traditions, love… What’s not to love!? I would happily go to a wedding every weekend if I could.

I love them all. I’m a big sap so I cry at pretty much all of the ceremonies, they give me the warm and fuzzies. There’s a wonderfully happy and lovey vibe at weddings I enjoy. I love dressing up/fashion/hair and makeup in general so it’s fun to get fancy. I also love parties and chatting it up and dancing and free food and booze haha especially when it’s tasty! And I love cake! Yum. And flowers and pretty places 🙂 So yeah me and weddings are a good fit.

merighthere :  I like them (to a certain point). I know people have budgets but the last wedding I went to was a bit of a drag and we did leave early. The ceremony was at 1PM with the reception starting at 6PM… we were from out of town so that was A LOT of time to kill. We paid for a hotel but it was a cash bar. Lastly, the wedding was FULL of older people, this I mean by 50+ so the music was a YAWN. When I requested something newer and upbeat all the people cleared the floor and it was just me, my Fiance and the wedding party. That’s when I knew it was time to call it an early night as we really weren’t going to get our dance on.

The older I get, the more I dislike weddings. I am, of course, extremely happy for the bride and groom and the love they share, but I have found that weddings cost a lot of money to attend, and there is often a lot of standing around while waiting for the next “thing” to take place. I also have bad anxiety, and the huge amount of small-talk required at weddings can put me on overload.
