Nope. Wasn’t really sure I’d ever get married until I gave my husband the go-ahead to propose. And we were engaged two weeks later. Which was when I actually started thinking about our wedding. I always loved gog to other people’s weddings, but never really thiught about my own. We figured it out just fine!

I’m the complete opposite. I always dreamed about finding “the one” and having a marriage and the day-to-day stuff but barely gave the actual wedding day much thought!

cpick: I dreamed of being married. Not getting married. I didn’t plan a wedding in my head. I was the type of person who thought of a future husband, not how my wedding day would be.

cpick: I’m like you. I assumed I would get married one day, but it’s never something I “dreamed” of. Never did I think about the kind of dresses I liked or where I would have a wedding. I only started looking into it months after we went to get my ring size, and about 3 months before my Fiance proposed.
I never understood the hype and all the wedding boards on Pinterest for people’s hypothetical wedding. Nothing against it. To each their own. I just could never find the interest to do it myself until I actually had something to plan.

Yes and no. I mostly had the idea of having a husband and kids more so than the wedding. Getting married was my life dream… and there was a time in my life where I didn’t think it would ever happen. I wasn’t the prettiest, most popular in school. I didn’t have a boyfriend until my 20’s. I spent high school worrying that no one would ever like me and that my dream of having a family would never come true.
That being said, by age 14 I knew what kind of wedding I wanted. I knew colours, style, time of year, etc. I had that all planned out.
But I more so looked forward to having a family. THAT was what I dreamed of.

I’ve never dreamt about my actual wedding day but I knew I wanted to get married someday.

I definitely dreamed about my wedding. It wasn’t focused on my dress or the flowers, but more like – what will it feel like when my dad walks me down the aisle? What will our first dance song be? How awesome will it be to have all of our friends and family there, celebrating with us? But I’ve always daydreamed about that kind of stuff. When I was a kid, I liked to think about what going to college would be like. In college, I liked to think about what it would be like to have a career and a house full of matching furniture. In my early twenties, I’d sometimes find myself at the end of a Google trail reading parenting blogs and stroller reviews. So yes – definitely dreamed about my wedding! I didn’t have concrete plans or anything, but it’s absolutely something I thought about long before I met my husband.

cpick: I imagined my wedding at various points in my life, but I didn’t have it planned, I wasn’t like J.Lo in the wedding planner or Monica on friends. I definitely had an idea of my wedding but I didn’t spend 30 years dreaming about that one day.

I never wanted a wedding. I’m too shy. I can’t stand being the centre of attention. I always said I’d elope, as soon as I knew what that meant, and I did!

I always envisioned myself married and knew a wedding would happen, but I had never dreamed of what that wedding would like. Even after I knew my fiance and I would get engaged at some point, I didn’t know what I wanted my wedding to look like until friends of mine started getting married and I attended more weddings. Then I realized I liked some things, could do without others, and used a “process of elimination” to hone in on what I liked.
Did the same thing for an engagement ring too, now that I think about it.

No. I wanted to get married, but never thought about all of the extra details. It was not until the second time around that I realized I wanted a wedding and thought about everything. I was not sure that I would get married again, though.

I always wanted to get married, but never thought about details until we were engaged.

Not at all, and we eloped and didn’t have a traditional wedding. My husband finds it very humorous that I’m on Wedding Bee at all since I was so disinterested in wedding planning

Totally. My Pinterest is so freakin organized with wedding things, seperate boards or dresses, decor, hair, food, cakes, etc.
But now I just can’t wait for it to get here. I wish I’d had a shorter engagement.

I remember thinking that I’d have a ring like Princess Diana’s after I saw it on TV as a kid, but I never pictured my actual wedding.
Even when I met, fell in love with, and got engaged to my now-husband I didn’t start thinking about the actual wedding part of getting married until after a year into our engagement. In fact I would have preferred to just elope, but seeing me have an actual wedding was really important to my family so I just went with it.
