We got dressed in regular clothes and went to a nightclub with friends. We got home around 6 AM.

We had a vintage car pick us up from our reception and then we got a fancy hotel in the downtown area of our city. We bascially just had sex and reminisced on the night and had some champage and drinks in our hotel room! I know some people do an after party but honestly I was so looking forward to alone time with my husband. The party is so quick paced that it’s like you hardly spend anytime with them since everyone is pulling you in various directions. I know some friends/family went downtown bar hopping after our reception but honestly I didn’t care or felt like I was missing out at alllllll. I just wanted my husband! To each their own tho.

A lot of the weddings I’ve been to, everyone who wanted to continue celebrating moved the party to the hotel bar afterwards.

  • Wedding: November 2014

We went home and went to bed. We were exhausted. We didn’t live together before marriage, so going home to “our” house was exciting.

We went to our room, banged, then passed out lol. I’ve been to weddings where everyone went out to a bar/club or bar hopped afterwards, including the bride and groom. Honestly I was so exhausted after the long day, I was ready to be done. We also had a Destination Wedding in Mexico though, so we still got to spend the next few days with everyone

A lot of our friends went to a bar across the courtyard from our venue, so we were there for a bit (definitely no more than an hour, probably less). Got a Lyft back to the hotel, changed back into my getting-ready robe, soaked my feet because they were sore from my shoes and dirty from taking off my shoes, consumated the marriage (lol), and went to bed.

  • Wedding: September 2018

We went back to a hotel room and spent time together and ate cake (it was amazing). As by the time the reception ended and we got the bus back to the hotel (20 minutes away) I was exhausted and just wanted to spend some time alone together.

Our reception ended at 1am and then our wedding party had an after party in their cottage (we all stayed onsite at the venue). We went back to the bridal suite around 2am.

We arranged an after party for our guests at a club, but we headed to a hotel suite for the night. I was drunk and exhausted so I was asleep before my head touched the pillow.  We ate cake the next morning.

We had a really nice hotel suite so after our courthouse wedding followed by dinner we went back to the hotel, had a couple drinks with friends at the bar, then went to the suite and went into the jacuzzi and drank champagne. Pretty sure I ate my leftover pasta while in the jacuzzi too. Then fell asleep

we had our reception the following night, I was so exhausted and pretty drunk so I went back to the hotel and immediately passed out, my husband hung out with some friends that were in town for a few hours then came to bed.

i think we finally consummated our marriage the following morning lol. It was an exhausting weekend

We had a large multi-room hotel suite where friends and family came and drank and sang. It was a mix of ages and both sides of the family. Irish love to party. People told us they enjoyed the after party as much as the wedding and reception!

We arranged transportation to a pub/restaurant after our dinner reception for anyone who wanted to eat and drink more (we covered food and some drinks) and dance all night.

We met a bunch of our guests at the bar in the hotel where we spent that night.  We ended up getting there a little after them, and there was a big cheer — from both our guests and random strangers in the bar — when we walked in in our wedding clothes.  It was awesome 🙂
