I have been to 4 weddings this year already. People are just getting married all over the place. And it’s weird because a lot of them are my friends. Like people my age. Getting married. It’s crazy I tell ya! There’s always two sides to going to a wedding. A love and a hate side if you will. There’s so many things about weddings that I love and then there’s some other things that I hate. Well maybe hate is a strong word. It’s more like dislike or inconvenient. Anywho, here are my love/hates of weddings.
1. Seeing your friend’s best day of their life
There is something truly special and magical about watching one of your friends vow their love to their significant other. Just totally and completely wrapped up in each other for a day.
2. Open bars
Uh hell yeah. You know where you can find me! I didn’t Uber here for nothing! 😉
3. Dressing up
As you know, I’m lazy. I like my jeans, T-shirt, and converse. It’s easy. But when there’s an actual reason to dress up, I do kind of love it. I put on a cute dress, add some sparkly jewelry, curl my hair, and just get a little fancy!
4. Free food
Uh yessss. I love eating, so when it’s for free, bring it on!
Okay this one…I like to dance. With the right amount of liquid courage and partner, it’s a blast! Do I want to spend every weekend at the club? No. But wedding music is just so much fun, and the boyfriend and I really know how to let loose on a dance floor!
6. When are you getting married?
I’m at a wedding because THEY are getting married, it’s not a premonition of my life. It doesn’t mean that I’ll be getting married next week. It’s not like the flu, and I’ll catch it after the bride has it.
7. Open bars
Ah yes, this has appeared on the good and the bad list. Open bar = good. Open bar with Allison’a lack of self control = bad. The unlimited drinks is not a challenge girl! Slow down.
8. Feet getting stomped on on the dance floor
I don’t wear heels, so I usually wear sandals. And then it’s this little piggy goes ouchy all throughout the night. Between all the stilettos and men out there stomping around…let’s just say I almost always lose a toenail.
9. Making small talk with strangers
This can be good and bad. But I’m just SO bad at small talk that I just come across as the stupid weird friend. The whole “so who do you know and how did you get invited” never really gets me very far. I don’t know why…
BUT as you can tell, the loves outweigh the hates, which is why I’ll never turn a wedding down. Besides, seeing people publicly express their love for one another…ah shit, what can I say? I’m a hopeless romantic!
Anything you guys are loving or hating at weddings? Or am I alone here?
