I like attending weddings now more than I did when I was single. I love the food, celebrating, getting dressed up. Open bar and good cocktail hour? I love it.
However, I will always hate the ceremony and reception in two different places when transportation is not provided. I swear we always end up at a bar or Target getting a wedding gift/card in between.

I adore weddings. I used to work in bridal and I loved it. I’m a high detail person and many weddings are high detail! I love seeing how the bride’s (or the groom’s or both) vision gets implemented throughout the wedding. The only thing I’m not big on (despite coming from a catholic upbringing of big, loud, and large weddings) is the loud DJ, bumping on the dance floor/feels like a club party towards the end of the reception. I understand that that is how a lot of people like to celebrate and have a good time — But I’ve got bad crowd deafness and have never enjoyed the loud party atmosphere. That’s usually when I go outside (or to another quieter area) to drink and hang out with the other guests who aren’t tearing it up on the dance floor.

I love weddings. I just love love, haha. I love all the corny hallmark-type shit that goes along with it. I love a reason to eat cake. I love seeing my family and friends happy. I love seeing how different every single wedding is! And I love having an excuse to buy a new dress for every single one lol

For me it depends on the couple. I’m down with having traditional weddings or going out to field and doing weird chanting or whatever (as long as you warn me so I don’t wear heels). For me it really does come down to the couple and how high maintenance they are. The more high maintenance the couple is, the least likely I’ll enjoy their wedding. I think when the couple has fun, everyone else has fun. I hate the weddings when the couple is so stuffy and still trying to stick to stupid etiquette rules or what they should be doing. For example, I went to a wedding when I was younger, it was odd – it would have been less odd had we all stood naked in a field and chanted. But the oddness didn’t detract from the enjoyment of the day. That was affected by the bride and groom doing a receiving line but they clearly hated it. They said the same thing to every single person and had no enthusiasm for it but got shitty when people were complaining that the line was too long. It took us 40 minutes to get a seat for dinner but they had to do this bloody line. They had absolutely no fun at all. The entire wedding was so stuffy and uptight. During dinner my mum told me to start fake coughing and then about 9pm she made excuses about me being sick so we could leave early.

I like the idea of marking what is an important milestone.
However, I do think that people shouldn’t feel as stuck to the typical “way” of doing it. I feel like most weddings are carbon copies of each other and brides get stuck on details that no one really notices and dont make that big a difference at all.

I love weddings, I enjoyed celebrating people’s love for each other. Also the unique ways they celebrate it. Also I love it because my SO and I get to dress up and look gorge for the night. LOL

If there’s booze, dancing, and people I know then I love them. But I went to a daytime wedding recently with my Fiance where I didn’t know anyone (his parent’s social circle) and it was a snooze fest. Also didnt help that it was balls hot outside in Florida midday. Also, one of the weddings I was in (bridesmaid) was not super exciting as I didn’t get a plus one and was only friends with like two other people there, both of whom had their husbands. And no single guys at the wedding. So I was flying solo in a friend group that I didn’t know. I drank and danced, but half the time danced totally alone, so was happy when the reception was over.

I have loved 90% of the weddings I’ve been to. Some have just been awkward and weird with bad music and unfriendly guests. I think being invited to a wedding is an honor and very special

I do like them. I think they’re romantic and generally make my husband and I feel all warm and fuzzy. Plus drinks and food is always fun. We’re going to our first wedding as a married couple this weekend and it’s also more stress free because I’m officially done with wedding planning haha
