    I think it’s just a fact of life…if you’re not super close with the bride or spend a lot of time with her, when would you have gotten a chance to meet the groom?  Especially if it’s a co-worker or someone of that sort.

    @Poppet:  I think its bound to happen. If you dont meet your spouse in college then your friends that love far away may not know him/her. I met my Fiance in college so all my college friends know him, but my childhood friends that live out of state dont. They will meet him at the wedding

    It seems pretty normal (at least to me) to know only the bride or the groom. I agree with roxymalone; the older you get, the more common it becomes.

    I think it’s totally normal.  I can honestly say that I’ve never had two friends marry each other and only once or twice have I even met the groom before the wedding.  Heck, once I didn’t even know the couple at all since I was my FI’s +1!
