Yesterday, I attended a wedding of a friend of my wife's. Actually, this friend had met her husband at our wedding, as he was a band member there.
There were a lot of firsts about it for me. It was the first where I knew neither the groom nor the bride. It was the first wedding I've attended where not just the seating for the huppah was separate gendered (not uncommon), but also for the meal! So, my wife and I were unable to sit together. Also, they had [faux] flowers on the women's tables, but those of the men's. My guess would be that men don't care about flowers' prettiness(?), so why spend the money on them (alternatively, someone told my wife that it "was a thing" that they don't on account of the femininity attached to them, thus, they were not on the men's side). Also, the bride's mother walked behind her daughter while a rabbinic couple walked her down, which was odd.
A couple of nice things about the wedding were free CDs, as the groom is apparently a musical fellow. Another was supplying the guests with ear plugs, which is a brilliant idea (even if they hadn't supplied them, my wife had remembered to bring a pair along). Also, I had never seen a band at a wedding so numerous - there were more than a dozen band members there.
It was a nice occasion and a new experience.
