There goes the bride; Or, RDB loves lists.

So I was out at dinner last night with some friends and one was talking about how she is the maid of honor for an upcoming wedding. She's helping with the bridal shower and the bachelorette party and all that, despite having never been to a wedding before.

Never been to a wedding before! I couldn't believe it. I told her I've probably been to 20 weddings already. I mean, yes, I'm older than she is, but not thaaaat much older! Anyway, driving home tonight I wanted to see if I could actually think of 20 weddings I've been to. I could only think of 13 in the car, but now that I'm really thinking about it:

Family weddings:
1. Uncle Lance & Aunt Vicki (my first, and I was a flower girl! I was 7 or so.)
2. Susan & Joel (my cousin. They're divorced now.)
3. Dad & Aliza (yay!)

College/Boston friends:
4. Sat Jiwan & Mimi (my ex-boyfriend)
5. Liora & Adam (my roommates!)
6. Jeff & Mary
7. Rachel & Andrew
8. Elena & (now divorced)
9. Sarah & Dan
10. Debbie & Darin (I can remember the bachelorette party, but not the wedding itself yet... weird...)
11. Larry & Rachael

Other friends:
12. Kat & Ron (my bff. I was a bridesmaid.)
13. Fran & Sharon
14. Emily & Ian (Also divorced.)
15. Eugene & Robin
16. Bikem & ? (I only got to go to this because it took place in Turkey when I happened to be there with my dance company. I don't remember his name, and they are divorced now. But it was an AWESOME wedding!)

California weddings:
17. Shira & Noam (performed at it - does that count?)
18. Elon & Sharon (performed at it - does that count?)
19. William & Iris
20. Alisha & Dave

I am SURE that I must have forgotten some... but I guessed 20 and I've come up with 20. Could I possibly have been exactly right?? Weird.

I'm honored to have made your list! And I laugh because I remember the wedding and barely remember the bachelorette party :-)
(Though now that I think about it, I do remember I lost my wallet that night -- that sucked!! I had to renew my license right before my wedding only to have to change it again right after -- annoying!)

couldn't help but making my own list after reading yours. I made it through 20, and stopped. Two conclusions:
1. having 44 first cousins= many weddings.
2. in Israel one is to attend MUCH more weddings.
