So here I am lurking like I usually do and I keep thinking about how many of these wedding related things I hadn't even heard of, and/or found completely baffling, before I started reading these boards and whatnot. And I really mean baffled - not offended or scandalized or disgusted or anything, just, wow, I had no idea that was a Thing. I'm sure we all have them, right?
- I'm 37 years old and I have been to exactly one wedding reception with assigned seating. In my mind it was only for the fanciest pantsiest of weddings, I had no idea it was a pretty standard thing in some places.
- I am completely baffled by reception after-parties because I thought the whole point was "That was fun! We're married! Let's go to our fancy hotel room and have sex!" I know people want to visit with friends from out of town etc - it's pretty much the only reason we're having a big-ish wedding in the first place - but you know. Not that night.
- Reception dresses. The whole point is that this is the prettiest most expensive dress I will ever own, and I have a set number of hours that I can wear it, ever, so I'm going to wear the shiiite out of it.
- More people than I ever imagined really like displaying/employing photos of themselves kissing. Go figure.
