    We haven’t had a wedding since ours, and won’t until over a year and a half after. We’re having our first anniversary soon though so I don’t feel like a newlywed anymore anyway.

    Nobody after us is even engaged… so UMM over a year…? Though, I’m hoping our best man will gather up some courage and propose to his girlfriend :}

    Five months…if we’d kept our original date, we would have worn the crown indefinitely!

    In my class, there are about 4 or 5 weddings within 4 months of ours. Within my close circle of friends it’ll be a while since 4 of my 6 bridesmaids are married already and the other two are not engaged. Mr.ND may have a friend getting engaged in the next 6 months, I’m so excited! My crown varies by location, hehe.

    DH’s Bridesmaid or Best Man got married 2 months after us.  We were at another wedding 4 months after we got married. 

    Its SO nice to just be a guest and not have to plan anything.

    You know, we don’t actually have ANY weddings coming up in our circle of friends right now! Looks like we’ll be the newlyweds for a while!

    Hubs was in a wedding 3 months after ours.  I was in a wedding 4 months after ours.  One of my BM’s got married 5 months after ours.  So that got us to August of last year.  And then this year we have 5 weddings between May 21st and Aug 28th.  It’s exhausting having so many friends get married!!

    Our first wedding after ours is at the end of May – so we will have been newlyweds for 9 months. THen after theirs we are going to 4 other weddings this year!! Even though we might not be newlyweds to others, I dont see why we have to retire the “crown” – cant there be more than one set!? Im not ready to give it up!

    I honestly can’t think of any of my friends who are dating right now. So I’m guessing it will be at least 6 months until someone gets married. One of my fiance’s groomsmen will be getting married but not for another year or so. Good question! πŸ™‚

    8 months for us. My wedding was in November and my friends wedding was in July. I still consider myself a newlywed now being married for a year and 3 months.
