How many weddings have you been to?

I always got shocked looks when I said I'd never been to a wedding (I have now been to 1!). It also makes planning difficult because I have almost no comparisons on how things can be done. So how many have you been to, and do you think it has helped you with your own?

    I have only been to about 5. It hasn't really helped me all that much with my own.

    I went to my first one in 2008 and then didn't go to another until 2011 and have been to 3 more I've only been to 5!

    And I would say it has helped me with my own but not too much. Just enough to know how I want to lay out the reception, etc.

    I have been to 3. Well 3 that I was old enough to remember anyway. And I'm in 2 this fall so I'll have 5 under my belt that I'll remember well enough before my big day. I definitely think they've helped with my planning. I mentally keep track of things I liked and didn't like everytime I go to one.

    I'd been to 2 weddings before mine, and I was 11 and 12 when they happened. Being on here and seeing what other people do at their weddings was way more helpful. Although, I just realized, we had an outdoor wedding, and so were the 2 I've been to. I've actually never been to a religious wedding..

    I definitely don't have a small family, just super super spread out. The ones that are married were either far away, or at the wrong time, or aren't close with my branch of the family.

    I have only been to one, and it was terrible. My family hasn't had a traditional marriage in over 20 years. The best things that I have been doing right now is reading forums here on WW, looking up stuff on youtube, and using pinterest.

    I used to work for a catering hall, so I guess technically I've gone to thousands haha.

    As a guest, I think probably at least eight. Maybe more.

    Oh and working in the catering hall was the best help for me. Because I witnessed so many things that bored guests that I would never do because of that. I've seen some ugly as sin centerpieces and decorations. Extremely tacky weddings. But I also saw gorgeous, elegant weddings that inspired the look that I'm going for now.

    I can't count on both hands and toes how many wedding I have been to in my family put on 5 in our back yards 27 weddings I think. I have a HUGE family and so does FH....It makes it very hard to plan something "Unique" when you have seen it all done so many times before.

    6. But one of those I was only 2 years old lol. And apparently I didn't get off the dance floor all night. I hear the story often from my mom.

    I think I've been to about 10-12 weddings. Learned quickly how expensive weddings are. I got to see things I really liked about different weddings, and things that didn't really work ori wasn't crazy about which has helped in the long run.

    I've been to 6 but none of them really helped me too much except to maybe figure out what I didn't want.

    I'm thinking four... three in the last 4-5 years. One when I was 8 and the flower girl. I wish I had a pic because those dresses were hideous.
