Ok, in truth, it hasn’t QUITE been 114. But let’s just say Katherine Heigel’s got nothing on me (except for a higher tax bracket and legs for days). My point is, I’ve been to enough weddings to know a thing or two on how to survive that blessed (or dreaded) day.
The day you witness two of your closest (and most annoyingly in love) friends say ‘“I do” to a lifetime of happily-ever-afters and vague booking their arguments. Bottom line, you need some help to get through this oh so happy day. Read on for my strategy on how to survive the romance (and maybe get some for yourself).
DON’T LOOK LIKE AN AMATEUR:
Let’s get some of the basic wedding etiquette out of the way in case this is the first time you’re attending a wedding and not sitting at the kiddie table (congratulations, no more crayons!).
Date or No Date? That is the Question:
The short answer is probably not. Unless you have a significant other that’s been in the picture longer than your newest pair of heels, chances are you probably weren’t given a +1. Check who that fancy paper invitation was addressed to and if it’s just your name with no “and guest” then consider yourself going solo for this one. This usually isn’t a big deal if you know other people attending the wedding. Chances are you’ll all be seated together and you’ll definitely have someone else to commiserate with as you judge all of the out of town guests on their sloppy Macarena moves.
