I’m no where near getting married, I don’t even have a boyfriend, but my brother got married and it made me think alot.
I do think I want a nice church-wedding, although I can’t fathom standing in front of people for so long. Nor can I fathom enduring all those PHOTOS!
It just got worse from there. Main thought was “no way in he-1-1 do I want a reception”
People crying, drinking, a few drunks, a few not-so-pretty dances…it was outdoors…so I spent more time looking at the river than talking to people. People making comments about when me or my other siblings would be “married off” not so tactful comments about sex, kissing and having children. Just what seemed to me to be an overall insult to decorum. I know, its a wedding, and maybe I just don’t know what weddings are supposed to be. The last wedding I went to I was 8 or 9 and it was an indoor stuffy affair where people just reveled in nice things and kids weren’t very welcome. You would of thought the bride and groom had never committed a sin in their lives. (you know, the “our poo don’t stink” type)
I’m not overly social, I like my close circles of friends, I can be outgoing among them but part of me is shy. Is this what wedding parties are supposed to be like? I would go out of my mind!!!
I’m just curious what other women have done, or how people could possibly enjoy a day that seems genuinely intolerable to me.
And again, I don’t even have so much as a boyfriend, so perhaps I’m overthinking things that are not my problem…but I am genuinely baffled.:shrug:
