I have. No dance, no music AT ALL, just ceremony, and wait for the bride and groom to come to the hall which they were 2 hours late btw to just eat and watch them open their gifts and then it was over. Idk why they even had a wedding honestly lol

@2beemrs: Ack. I would’ve been miserable.
Sure have. and there was music, dancing, etc. It was still so boring. Music completely sucked. There wasn’t one song I wanted to dance to.

It was a beautiful wedding, but it wasn’t my crowd (friends of my fiance’s), and he wasn’t into dancing or anything, so we left early with his brother and their family and hung out with them until the wee hours … Which was way more fun!

@Diamond84: omg it was! I want to make sure my wedding is fun with lots of music dancing and booze! Pluse they didn’t have wedding favors nor did they even say thank you to the guests! & That totally sucks! I bet your wedding will be a fun one 🙂

I may be jaded, but to me, every wedding is a boring wedding. I don’t like them at all, and I have no idea why people keep inviting me since I’m such a grinch.

@2beemrs: unfortunately…yes…i felt terrible bc this girl was a very good friend of mine. Her wedding had so many speeches (which she also hated) the DJ was terrible…almost no one danced. 🙁 and the food was weird
They did have a beautiful wedding, outside ceremony, nice venue…

Yes. No music. No decor. Just a room where we ate dinner. Oh and dry too.

@2beemrs: Every wedding in Taiwan is boring. No ceremony, Just a big dinner lasting an hour and a half to two hours with 300 people. The bride and groom just go from table to table to do toast the whole time and then they give out candy while you leave.
No dancing, no music, no drinking, no cake. The entertainment is looking at pictures the bride and groom took months before the wedding in wedding dresses on a big screen.

Yes yes yes! I think it was 100% because the bride and groom werent out of the dance floor. She kept asking why no one was dancing too, but they kept running away from the dance floor to thank people all night. I am not saying you shouldnt thank people but there is a time to do so that isnt during the celebration.

No! Every wedding I’ve been to was interesting in some way; and it’s always good to see two people in love marry. I actually enjoy the no-dancing weddings more, because it’s possible to talk to people. Because weddings are happy occasions, I find even virtual strangers are happy to chat.

The last wedding I went to was a Buddhist tea ceremony, which mainly consisted of chanting – it was lovely initially but it went on for 2 hours. Several people (including the father of the bride) fell asleep and when they announced that they were coming to the end, a little girl did a fist pump and ran out of the room. On the plus side they served a great lunch afterwards and then there was a beautiful evening reception.

@2beemrs: I was at a boring one… just very cookie cutter, nothing personal or special about it at all, like it was planned by a stranger who’d only seen stock weddings in movies. It could have been anyone’s. Blah. Even someone who likes to be normal and follow tradition should have a little personality in their day!!

I’ve been to several.
One, the wedding party disappeared for hours leaving everyone starving. People left long before the WP finally arrived (some even took their gifts home with them). Also the reception was during a husker game. No one danced, everyone was huddled around a tv that was older than myself all night.
Second, too many WP dances. They went on for well over an hour. The bride had to have special songs with everyone and their brother,it was redic. We left and drank across the street at a bar, about twenty people from the wedding came in within a few minutes of us. Again, during a husker game. So dumb for Nebraska natives.
I’d post more but those are the top two that stick out.

Yah. Other people seemed to have fun, but my fiancé and I didn’t. It was in the middle of nowhere at a farm and we aren’t camping people, so we had to drive back to a hotel 1.5 hours away that night. Obviously we weren’t drinking. So everything was boring to us, and the ceremony was very long and Catholic, and there was a big gap between ceremony and reception. Normally I understand and don’t care about gaps but since this was in the middle of nowhere and we had nothing to do… it sucked waiting around for 3 hours. We ended up leaving at 10pm (ceremony was 1:30) and we couldn’t wait to be out of there.
