Good food, good conversation with the guests at your table – plus others , and good music – but not so loud that you can’t converse. I don’t drink alcohol and I limit my dancing to an occassional slow dance. I asked the band at my daughter’s wedding to play at half volume and I was pleasantly surprised to be able to hold a conversaton with anyone at my table, instead of yelling directly in someone’s ear.

Things that will make me want to leave early; the volume/quality of the music (there’s been a few bands that have played at rock concert/brain shattering volume), and whether I smell smoke or not. I know, that sounds odd, but smoke triggers my asthma. Sometimes the smoking area is right outside the door to the reception room, guests go in and out and the door stays open; it bothers me across the ballroom. Although I can use my inhaler and take a pill, my eyes will still be burning = we leave early.

Alcohol, fun songs that get everyone on the dance floor, and without a doubt the best addition to modern weddings, the photo booth. Always so much fun taking goofy photos with friends which are a cute keep sake you usually get a copy of to take home!

I like good food, plenty of it. Good music and a DJ who plays all my requests! I take a pen and little notebook in my purse, and make lists for the DJ!

Having nice chatty people at my table. Doesn’t matter if I know them. I hate people who won’t talk to me because we haven’t been properly introduced. 

Me & DH don’t drink, so I find it amusing to watch others get shit-faced and have to be carried out, and get into loud shouting matches with others. Glad I don’t have to deal with it!

kristin36890 :  Open bar with good beer selction, good music, and a laid back atmosphere. Good food is a major plus, but I’ve had okay food at a wedding and still had a blast.
