    My brother will be getting married this December but I don’t have any other weddings this year other than my own 2 weeks ago. I usually only attend about one wedding a year, my circle apparently is good at spreading out the celebrating

    I’m an “older” bride by standards in my area, so most of my friends are already married. We’ll be attending one wedding 3 weeks after ours and that’s the only one on the books this year. 

    Had you asked me 5 years ago, I routinely had 10+ weddings per year to attend.

    There was only one other wedding the year we married. Originally there was going to be 2, but my cousin cancelled hers very early on in her planning process and the wedding venue we were interested in had one date open at the end of the year so we took it. I was the first of my friends to get married and engaged so weddings were in short supply for us.

    Only one! His cousin got engaged shortly after us and is marying shortly after us. I’m looking forward to our first big family event together as husband and wife (outside our own small wedding) ☺️

    Just the one that we’ve already been to. Most today our friends are already married now. When I was doing the guest list for our celebration next summer most people are married. 

    I anticipate the next wedding I go to will be my sister’s (I’m predicting that in a couple of years), unless one of our single or LTR friends surprise us.

    One. And totally disappointed there’s not more. I’d love to go to a wedding as a guest.

    it was a quiet year in our social circles I guess (plus most are already married, though there will be another wave in a couple years I bet)

    kprecis :  Fiance and I are a bit “older” by general standards, so the bulk of weddings were 2-4 years ago. We went to a wedding in April and will got to another on in October, but there will be 4 total in my office once mine is over in 3 weeks.

    5 of our friends are getting married next year. 4 in July, and 1 the week before us. Bf is in 3 of these weddings.

     

    I will also have 1 family wedding. And I think 2 of our other friends will be engaged by end of the year so we will see if they do their wedding next year!

    kprecis :  We didn’t go to any other weddings the year we got married. I think I’ve been to about one wedding a year for the last 15 years, though, and that includes one year when we went to 2 weddings.

    Just one. (and it was the first wedding I’d ever attended!) I got married at 23, so we were a bit ahead of our cohort. That was 2013. This year it’s finally starting up amongst our social circles! 4 weddings this year.
