The other reason why I like weddings, is because it's such a happy occasion, which usually means that the celebrations afterwards are joyous and fun. The whole venue is full of people who know and like each other (obviously with exceptions, but you know), which makes it so much easier to dance crazily all night long, to have fun conversations in between and just generally have a really good time.
One thing I learnt that isn't so friendly about a wedding however is: Ladies get very competitive over who catches the flower bouquet. I know I know, it's supposed to tell you who's getting married next, but come on people, do you really think your boyfriend seeing you elbow others out of the way for the flowers makes him more inclined to propose to you any time soon? I think not.
Anyway, back to my point. I had a really lovely time. It was my first ever wedding in the UK, and I think it's lovely to have bridesmaids and groomsmen, it just makes the whole thing seem even more fairytale like :).
People always say they wish the couple that it's the happiest day of their life, but I think it's nicer to see it as a beginning to a very happy life, for it to maybe be the most beautiful and happiest of all days so far, but for there to be many many happier days.
