I have never been married. But I do hope to get married some day. The weddings I've gone to are really great. The party is fun. I love to see how happy the bride and groom are. Its a really great feeling. I love weddings too!

It is never too late to have your dream wedding. You can always celebrate you anniversary by renewing your vows.The main thing you need , you still have, your spouse.

I had a very small wedding...there was a shotgun in my dad's back pocket! LOL...not really but it was January and very cold and freezing rain the day I got married....we had planned a small wedding. I am not into being the center of attention....a reception at my mom's..and that was it....a divorce a few years later so glad we didn't waste a bunch of money!

I love weddings. My wedding was simple and nothing fancy. We had a 4 o'clock ceremony followed by a small bite to eat at my moms house with three tier white cake, white icing and little blue flowers. Afterwards, we all went out for a night of dancing. My mom was supposed to pay half and my inlaws were supposed to pay half. The inlaws never came through with the money so mom had to try and pay for everything out of her money. She had been widowed for about 10 months at the time of the wedding and money was tight. She couldn't afford the reception and the wedding so she made the dress and the veil, bought the grooms suite, tie, shirt, ordered flowers, hired a musician for the church and made a luncheon. It was alright I suppose.

What a great mom. A handmade dress. That is an heirloom, i think that is more valuable than a store bought one. It sounds like it was a beautiful day.A white cake with white frosting with blue flowers is the type of cake I get for my birthday.

I have been to numerous wedding already. I love the wedding vows. Of course, I love the reception part. But when it comes to marriage it self, I really dunno but it seems like - hmm.. not seems, it is really a big big responsiblity to finally say I do. Whew! Bottomline, I am afraid of marriage too. Though I love watching them. I just can't imagine that one day they will be having divorce and married someone else.

I am not afraid of marriage I just know the marriage I would have would Never make either me or my husband happy. I am very old fashioned and I rather be happy and be in love than marry.

Well as you love weddings not marriage then you should always attend weddings of your friends but you know one day when u are fallin' love and ready to settle down you gonna love marriage too hehehe. Well my wedding is good but not better as what i expected. We paid someone to organized stuff but it's not always what i wanted. But the important is we got married. My cake is not better but it's good the reception is still not bad lolz. Happy posting.

I can see settling down but not marrying. I like the idea of celebrating the love of my mate with friends. So I Can see having a reception. Question, what did you want for your wedding cake/

Because of strange circumstances my husband and I ended up eloping in Sedona AZ, and then having a second "wedding" (sort of) and reception a year later in Canada where we live now. Our religions did not want to work together, so we eloped, and then repeated vows that we wrote in the second wedding. As for the cake, we had a Danish marzipan cake. It was great! The party was a late afternoon, early evening party, as there were children and elderly people present that probably wouldn'tt want to stay up all night.

Eloping is so romantic.And then having a ceremony for the family a year later is the best thing.I am a hopeless romantic,so if I really thought I could stay married to the one I love , I would marry the same way you two did, MyMy mom and Dad didn't have a huge wedding , they married quickly and then caught a train to NEw York. My mom said she wore a light gren suit.That sounds romantic too.
