One of my good friends weddings was the most fun, and it was because of the people!

 

None of the decorations, foods, drinks, music, venue, or any of that. The people who were there made it genuinely amazing.

I cannot really pinpoint ‘unique’ things that people have that enhance my experience one way or another, because often times trends seem to run from wedding to wedding…in my opinion.

Honestly, what makes weddings the ‘greatest time ever’ for me is a) a good flow to the timeline, which for me is ceremony, perhaps a cocktail hour (although I can self entertain myself if there is a break, so that is not necessary either!) dinner, and then dancing.  The weddings where we sat for 2-3 hours at our table to watch ‘tradition’ seemed long.  b) Booze.  Although I respect no bar at all, I personally tend to have a bit more fun when there is some on hand :), and c) A GREAT DJ.  Someone whom gets the party started, and keeps it going!

For me, the funnest was my sisters wedding because for one, I knew just about everyone there so it was like a big party, and because her DJ was really good. They played dancable music and did scavenger hunts that were just hilarious. 🙂

@jwdesiree:  I enjoyed the last wedding I went to. They had it in their backyard, but it was catered, nice tableclothes etc. It was sort of rustic chic. They since moved away, but their house was HUGE and it was in this amazing old neighborhood with old tall trees.. it was just very picturesque and laid back.

Everyone still dressed up and everything, but it wasn’t one of those weddings where you sit in a stuffy church (or room where ceremony is held), then kill time, and then go to a stuffy ballroom for the reception. I am sure there are plenty of lovely ballrooms out there, but the weddings I’ve been to generally involved the type of ballroom you’d go to for a work conference.. nothing fancy.

Dancing was totally optional, and most people just stayed on the deck and chatted after the food. The ceremony was fairly short, and we just walked over to the tables for food after. I guess it was a small(ish) wedding… I think at least 50 people were there, though. They took all the kids into the house (paid babysitters) so that during the reception they had something to do. They came out later to mingle with the adults. It was nice that the kids were sorta included. The bride mingled with everyone. We drank Pimms and lemonade. It was just a relaxing evening!

I think I’ve enjoyed the less “unique” weddings wayyyy more! It was definitely the people who make it fun and not the decor/theme/food.

It was one of my best friend’s weddings.  I loved it because I was in charge of it.  I ran the whole show.  It’s kindof my gift, party planning.

I have two more weddings coming up where I’m planning them.  It’s soooo fun!

Otherwise, I hate weddings.

Good mix of people and enough of a group to be a crowd but not so big a group that everyone was surrounded by strangers; interesting venue that still had all the proper facilities (real bathrooms, air cond, enough chairs, etc) to be hosting a party; great food and open bar; everyone having a great time with friends or making new friends!

Good people/friends, good bar, good music/DJ, good food.

That’s all I need!
