    Newbie introduction.

    Hi All,
    I'm in my early 30's, as is my boyfriend. We're madly in love (as we should be, right?) and talking about getting married, ideally within the next 6-12 months.

    I hear you, but....

    I disagree.
    I just read your introduction. Your opinion may change after you've had your own wedding planning adventure :)
    I've been to several weddings where I knew barely any else except for the bride and/or groom. I always decided to go, because that person (or persons) meant a whole lot to me. I had a couple of awkward reception moments (no partner to dance with for slow songs, for instance), but I was happy to just be there and brushed those moments off.
    I also had a choice of whether I wanted to go or not. I chose to go
