we were together every second.  it was a conscience decision we made together – Im the social butterfly and always remember everyones names and such and he’s not…so i have a tendancy to flit off somewhere and leave him to fend for himself.  knowing this, my planner gave me the best advice of the whole day –

never leave his side. 

she made me aware that i tends to socialize too much and i was super careful not to and becuase of it, we visted together, danced together, ate together…it was perfect.  we’re together in all the pictures too, which is amazing!

60 guests at my wedding and I barely saw my husband.  I spent most of the reception talking to guests and every once in a while we would bump into each other. It was still fun though…because after the wedding we had a lot of fun staying up late reading our cards together and packing for the honeymoon.

I stole my husband away to dance to the last half of my favorite song during the reception and other than that i hardly saw him lol We had been living out of state for the year before the wedding so it was kind of like a reunion for us to see all our friends and family again. I knew it would be that way so we made sure to book the honeymoon suite for two nights after so we could relax together… our real honeymoon isn’t until April

We had 90 guests and my husband and I were hand-in-hand the whole time.  I’m a bit shy when it comes to big group situations, so we knew from the beginning that we would spend the evening together as we visited with everyone.  Consequently, I think we only danced to three songs the whole night (including our first dance).  We mostly visited with our guests and our photographer stole us to take some more pictures.

We had a very small reception (30 people) but before the actual dinner, when we were just hanging at my Gran’s, we didn’t spend a ton of time together–he was mingling with my family and I was hanging with my college buddies who dropped by. After that, though, we were together the entire night.

I didn’t spend much time with my husband at our wedding. We had two dances together, and we ate dinner together, but that was pretty much it. I’m a little bummed that we didn’t spend more time together, but we did get to spend a lot of time catching up with family and friends that we don’t see often. My husband had friends come in from LA and Chicago, and he hadn’t seen them in years, and I was really happy he got that chance to hang out with them. After all, I get to hang out with him every day (mostly) for the rest of our lives. Maybe we’ll just have to do the middle school sway in our living room now to make me feel better 🙂

We had about 85 people at our wedding, and i would say we spent about 40% of our time together.  I look at pics of our reception, and you barely see us together, but I know we were. We had the cake cutting, first dance, bouquet/garter toss, but for the most part we danced with everyone in a big group.  We ended up going downstairs to get away for a few minutes, which I kinda wish would have been caught on camera, but at least we know it happened. like a pp said, we knew we were going to be together for our entire honeymoon and after the wedding, so it didn’t really bother me that much. We wanted to spend as much time together with friends and family as we could

We made sure we were together till the end. We ate together and since we went first most of our guests were still eating when we were finished so we could greet the tables together. We separated a bit at the end after we’d said hello to everyone but we were together 80% of the time.

@melisslp Same thing for us!  I was dancing and he was chatting.  But he came to dance sometimes & I left to mingle sometimes.  I think some of our guests that don’t know us as a couple that well may have been surprised by that, but that’s how we work!  Tag team marriage!  lol.

We were together about 90% of the time. Only to use the restroom or get a drink seperately were we apart. We danced and visited each table with each other the whole night.

This is nice to hear, so that I can make a conscious effort to stick together. I’m normally flit around from group to group when we’re out, and he and I have a tendency, even at family gatherings of just 7 other people, to spend the entire evening apart.
