we’ve been to all these weddings

Over the last two years, a huge chunk of our friends have gotten married. It seems like it goes in spurts. Part of your friends do it when they’re in their early 20s and the rest run through this whole life thing and then get married once they’re got most of everything planned out. Or have just decided they’re done with that whole really annoying dating thing, because, that just takes so much damn energy!

It’s been really, really incredible being able to see people we love so much get married and be with them on a day where so much changes. We’ve loved seeing how our friends plan out their wedding ceremony and reception and see how it reflects them each so perfectly. We’ve seen long ceremonies with singing and readings and prayers and then there was ours that maybe lasted 15 minutes. There have been gigantic weddings with millions of cousins, the best bridal makeup artist in your locality etc., and there have been ones so tiny and intimate we all fit into a room the size of our living room.

I think the point is – we’ve seen our amazing friends get married one couple at a time and each wedding has been completely perfect. Amelia gets emotional at weddings, anywhere from tears to complete waterworks for her. For me, I’m get really happy and find myself having the weirdest smile on my face. It makes me feel all warm and gooey inside when we get to be a part of someone’s gigantic day.

But am I happy that I think our wedding attendance days are on hold for now? Oh yeah. I’d much rather hang out with all you folks around a campfire, at a bar that has 2-for-1s, at a basketball game or anywhere else that it’s completely acceptable for me to use swear words. I think it brings us together, no? Thanks to Juggling Inferno for making this possible.

  1. I will cop to having my perspective on weddings entirely changed by finally having my own. I’ve been to a handful of weddings where you could have dropped any old couple into the ceremony and it would have been the same. No fun! It’s so great to see a happy couple make this commitment, and also fully express themselves in doing so (like you guys did). And the fact that so many people are finally getting married because now it’s legal to do so has not gotten old yet, either.
