When I turned 20 my cousin told me EVERYONE I knew would be getting married. It really seemed that way for the next few years. In one year I attended 6 weddings, 2 of which were on the same day! In my later 20’s things slowed down again and my friends were split right down the middle into “married couples” and “single-ish” people. This year I turned 30 and I have 3 weddings, plus my own, to attend in the next year!
I have to say weddings in your 30’s are infinitely more fun than weddings in your 20’s. The brides and grooms have had a few years settle into who they really are and have now been to enough weddings to really decide what is important to them. (Skip the unity candle.) Honestly, 10 years ago I don’t think I would have known myself well enough to say, “No, we don’t want to toss the bouquet or the garter.” No one wants to be singled out for being single and then have the entire room shouting that they are not complete unless they are married soon. Blech!
One of my best friends and old roommates is getting married and I am honored to be a bridesmaid in her wedding next year! Erin has definitive tastes and her wedding is definitley going to reflect that! It will be in a concert venue with 3 bands and a retro rockabilly theme. I’m bringing earplugs!
On to the dress!
