I KNOW!!
My SIL is getting married in June, and my best friend if officially “waiting” now – they bought the ring but she wants the surprise proposal, go figure!

Anyway, I am sooo excited for them; I keep doing research for dresses that would suit them well, ideas of style, etc. And it’s not like I was into planning for my own wedding – we chose a Destination Wedding for many reasons, one being the aversion to planning. I guess once mine is done, there is no more stress associated with planning a wedding and I can look into many cool details and get excited without the pressure.

Well, I have started thinking about what I’ll wear to the June wedding… It will be a low-key affair, so I don’t have any reason to buy a new dress… maybe just the shoes then? Wink

I can’t wait to go to a wedding as a married couple. I won’t have to stand up for the bouquet toss anymore. Hoorary. I wish we had an upcoming wedding to attend. I love weddings.

My Future Sister-In-Law is actually getting married 4 months after us, so it will be our first wedding as a married couple! I’m excited, although it helps to not stress about hers b/c I’ve got enough worrying and planning to do with ours, plus I’m also a Bridesmaid or Best Man in her wedding, so pretty sure my attire won’t be so much to stress about. But if it keeps you interested and excited for the upcoming wedding, why not? Tongue out

I went to a wedding a month after mine and I was so excited! I had bought a dress to wear to our rehersal dinner but didn’t get a chance to because we ended up running around the day of, so I was literally in a t-shirt and jeans 🙁 …but I surely got to wear my dress at their wedding and look absolutely fabulous!  I even wore the necklace that I bought to wear the day of that I forgot!

We haven’t had a wedding to attend as a couple yet but I am interested in seeing what it will be like now that I am married.

I have ALWAYS been wedding crazy.  I go to so many I am like a professional wedding guest.  I love everything about them.  Picking out the perfect dress, perfect gift, doing my hair, CAKE!, dancing, mingling.  Sigh….

We haven’t been to any yet, but one of my cousin’s is getting married in June and one in August and then a couple more are engaged and not sure on when they are getting married yet!!!  I can’t wait!  I am most happy about not having to get up and do the bouquet toss!!!!  I’ve always loved weddings, but it was always a little depressing knowing that I didn’t have anyone at those times.  But now I get to enjoy all of the wedding!!!  Bring them all on!!!!

I love weddings.. I can’t wait to go to my brother’s wedding, and my cousin’s weddings, and my MOH’s wedding. They say that when someone in the family or circle of friends, or church members get married it creates a chain reaction…. So that’s what we are hoping for!

I’ve never been to a wedding before, and I’ll be the first of my family or friends, so I’m NEVER going to attend a wedding where I’m not already married. : I didn’t think about the bouquet toss either, but I guess I’ll never get to catch one.

One of my close friends got married a few months after I did, and I was a bridesmaid. It was really fun! It was kinda strange too as we were looked at as a “married couple” and got to do the sweetheart dance (all the married couples start dancing, then the DJ tells people to sit down if they’ve only been married X number of years until the couple who has been married the longest is the last one standing).
