    I enjoy weddings now (after marriage) for a couple of reasons.

    1.)  When you graduate from high school and college events,(proms homecomings), and when you have kids, I find there are fewer occassions to have an exciting evening out.  Maybe get all fancied up.

    2.)  Most of the weddings I went to before I was married, happened while I didn’t have a bf.  So while I loved gointo weddings, I was always thinking a little, “Would I get my turn?”  “Are people going to ask me why I didn’t bring anyone?”  “I love slow songs, and have no one to dance with.”

    I haven’t yet attended one, but am in one next month and I feel as though I will enjoy it because I can take a step back and just breathe it in for what it is, and admire all the work and love poured in!!

    I haven’t attended one since mine and I don’t know when we’ll have on as one of the engaged couple we knew broke up and the other seems to be on the waiting forever paln, it would be a second marriage for him and I think he has cold feet.

    I have yet to attend one since my own. BUT, I def LOVE weddings even more now & even find myself jealous of my friends that have recently gotten engaged. I’m not jealous of THEM, I’m jealous that they get to plan a wedding!! I just loved planning my own wedding & almost wish I had a longer engagement just so that I could still be planning (j/k, but kind of serious, haha!)

    I didn’t vote because I’m not married yet, but I can’t wait to start attending weddings after my own. I wasn’t interested in anything “wedding” before I got engaged. I also think I will enjoy myself more – no more dreading the bouquet toss tradition.

    I didn’t vote, because I’ve only been to one wedding since my own. It was my best friend’s wedding and it really suited her, so I enjoyed it. At the same time, beforehand, I was a little concerned about some things she incorporated, but it ended up being perfect and not like how I imagined.

    That being said, I’m not a fan of weddings in general, so if I feel obligated or forced to go to a wedding, I probably won’t enjoy it as much. I will, however, be grateful to not have to do the bouquet toss. I find it embarassing, especially since the last time I was pressured to go, it was at a wedding I was a videographer at, and I didn’t appreciate hearing it from the DJ or whoever it was. I didn’t go up since I didn’t find it appropriate, but even before that I wasn’t a fan.

    I love weddings way more now. No more “should I do this? what’s her cake like? could I hire that DJ?” It’s over and done, and I can actually enjoy watching two become one. 

    I also understand the emotional aspect of the wedding more, not just the fantasy of a wedding but the realities of a marriage.

    I cheated  – I’m not married and I voted.  But I am already enjoying weddings more, I now have a huge appreciation for all the planning and decisions.  I love seeing what other people have done.
