going to a wedding alone tips

Going to a wedding alone can feel a bit daunting. There may be some people there whom you’ll know, but whom you perhaps don’t like. There will be a lot of couples, and you know they’ll stick to themselves. Who do you dance with once the dancing starts? Who do you look at in a meaningful way during the speeches? Weddings feel like they’re made for couples, but there are a lot of people who go stag to them. If the couple is working with a limited budget, they may just not be able to afford to give everyone a plus one. Perhaps only couples who are married or living together got invited together, and individuals who are mostly unattached didn’t get to bring a date. Or maybe you could have brought a date and really couldn’t think of anyone you’d want to bring along. So it’s just you, yourself, and…you. But you can have fun going stag to a wedding like this.

Get a makeover

This is a chance to buy a fabulous outfit, get your hair and makeup done, get a manicure and pedicure, and really treat yourself to some pampering. Who doesn’t love that? You’ll go looking so gorgeous that you’ll get a lot of attention (just don’t out-shine the bride).
