Just curious! We are doing thank you cards this weekend and writing a lot of stuff to our friends about how much fun we had partying with them all. But we definitely were pretty separate – me with my friends, him with his friends. We bumped into each other occasionally and danced or had a drink, but then inevitably one of us ran off again. We each had a BLAST and neither of us is complaining about it, but it just made me curious what other couples did. Did you pretty much split up and do your own thing after dinner, or were you mostly together? (For the whole picture, our wedding was 150 guests and it was a pretty awesome wild dancing and drinking party after dinner.)

We had the same experience. We had dinner, a few dances, and a few drinks together but I loveee to dance and dh likes to drink haha So he was at the bar socializing while I was dancing the whole night lol It was a perfect night.

We also had pretty much the same experience as you. It didn’t bother me that much, but I do wish we had more time together at the reception.

That’s often how we roll at big social events, but we both decided that we wanted to have memories of our reception that involved actually spending time with our new spouse and that we’d make a concerted effort to stick together. We still ended getting separated for much of the time, probably 1/3, but we tried to spend most of it together. We’ve been together for a long time, so all our friends are mutual and we’re really tight with each other’s families – so there wasn’t as much “my friends” and “his friends”.
