Wow, I am 24, going on 25 soon. I have been out of college for about 3 years and have not had any friends get married in the past three years. A few got married right out of college, but it’s been pretty slow going for the past few years.
Well, my Fiance and I have been together for 9 1/2 years and just got engaged last September. We set our date for August 10, 2013. By golly, ever since then, the wedding bells have been a ringing!!!!! Everyone we know is getting married, this SUMMER!!! It’s crazy and so much fun.
My friend–May 2013 (I will be in their wedding)
His friend–June 2013
My cousin–early July 2013 (in another state)
His friend–mid-July 2013 (he will be in their wedding)
His friend–late-July 2013 (he will be in their wedding)
August 2013–OUR WEDDING–we will both be in the wedding 🙂
We are going to go BROKE footing the bill for our wedding, buying gifts, renting suits, buying dresses and traveling around like crazy.
Who knew the love bug would bite so hard. I am so exicted, but it is going to be an exhausting (and financially draining) summer.
Did this happen to anyone else?
ETA: The kicker is, we have been together the longest and we are getting married last! My Fiance finds it kind of funny. But he things we will be able to wrap up the summer with a big bang 🙂

Wow, have a fun summer. To answer your question, no this has not happened to me. I would be so excited but probably ready to pull my hair out.

I think it might be a good idea to buy your FH a suit! At least he could wear it to the majority of the weddings, and you’ll probably save money.
That sounds like so much fun, though! And you’ll probably compile a pretty hefty Dos and Donts list for your own wedding.

@bmo88: I think you have me beat on weddings being attended this summer, and I thought we had a ton! GOOD LUCK! :]

Dayum, that’s a lot of weddings!
Ha, I didn’t get it as bad as you, but our engagement did send off a small train..
Ours will be this June, then a friend of mine in August, and then my own sisters in October, which I will be in, but Hopefully i will be able to deal financially since we have July and September in between each to recoup!!

@mepayne: That’s a good idea. He could use a good quality suit. He is going this weekend to get fitted. I am hoping the two weddings he is in will pick a similar color, so then we will pick that color as well. Ugh…so not looking forward to our ending account balance on August 11.

This hasnt happened to me. I love my friends but thank God bc I wouldnt be able to keep up! I do have a friend getting married Memorial Weekend but it is in Hawaii and I just can’t swing it.

@bmo88: FH is wearing a black (maybe dark grey) suit to our wedding because he doesn’t own one and it’s a nice opportunity to make an investment in a good quality one when it would be hard to justify otherwise. At least you’ll know that that money went towards something useful, instead of one-day rentals.

@bmo88: Similar but different: we gave the wedding bug to other people! (Or we like to think we did). In the month or two after our wedding, 3 sets of close friends announced their engagements. And yes, in at least one case, the girl told me that our wedding got them talking marriage 🙂 🙂 🙂

This similarly happened to me last year. I attended 7 weddings and had to turn down two due to work obligations and inability to travel to a destination wedding. I caN only imagine how many baby showers I’m going to be attending in the next year or two! In fact, I’ve already been to the baby shower of one of the brides from last summer! My goodness. At 25 I think this is just the age that it things tend to get lumped together at!
Good luck, have lots of fun at all of them!

I had one year (I think I was 27 or 28 at the time) where we went to seven weddings. It was a lot! But I did get to catch up with friends a lot which was nice 🙂

We had a crazy year that was filled with weddings, two were our own, two were in the same week, i think there were about 10 in total. We spent so much money on hen party and weddings gifts and now all the baby showers have started. I’ve already gone to two this year and it’s only March

Yep, we got engaged in may, then a couple of months later an old friend got engaged, then Future Sister-In-Law got engaged and my best friend’s dad just got married!.
Future Father-In-Law had gotten married about a month before Fiance proposed as well (he had already planned it though).
We won’t have a big cluster of weddings or anything, but it does seem like I have a lot on right now! Our engagement party, going away in a couple of weeks and RIGHT after we get back, FSIL’s e-party, then Fiance goes away on a work trip, then best friend’s 21st, then my 21st. That’s what the next couple of months look like! It’s the most i’ve had on in a looooong while.
