    I’m not a waiting bee anymore, but I remember when I was. I voted for bittersweet because while I was always happy for the couple, I also wanted it to be my turn. I also hated the bouquet toss part because it just reminded me of how “unengaged” I was!

    I was uaully really happy for the couple, but in the back of my mind i always wished it was my time. 

    After alot of weddings they all seem to be the same though.  My Future Brother-In-Law has like 9 weddings a year right now.  He hates them. 

    Fiance and i are just starting to get into the age when our friends are settling down.  We usually have 3 or so a year.

    I enjoy them, but I also haven’t been waiting nearly as long as some people, so I realize that it’s probably a lot different for people who have been together years and don’t know when/if he will ever propose. I wouldn’t judge a waiting bee who had ANY of these reactions to others’ weddings, as long as she kept it classy and played the part of happy and excited guest.

    yeah, i just posted about this! i will share the advice that has been given to me: it’s a good chance to look really foxy with your So around, and maybe the weddings are a good subliminal message to your SO that weddings are a part of the journey!!

    I love going to weddings! I thought it would bittersweet for me, but it just makes me excited for the future (I find myself taking mental notes about likes and dislikes, to dos and not to dos) and gets weddings on my SO’s brain 🙂

    I love weddings, before I was engaged I didn’t even notice the small stuff, but now, I look at every little detail the bride put in because I know how much planning would have gone into it.

    It seems all me and my SO do is go to weddings! We have been to at least one wedding a year for the 5 years we’ve been together! but we always have a great time. This one is our two friends getting married to each other. Plus I know our time is just around the corner. I have a feeling this is the last wedding I am going to as a “girlfriend”. So Yeah, My SO and I are going to look fabulous and dance the night away. so Yeah. I dig weddings.
