With June underway, so begins the ever wonderful wedding season.
Being that I am still fairly young, you’re probably thinking – what could KB possibly know about weddings?
Well, I have been in more weddings than I care to admit. Having numerous girlfriends who have found the loves of their lives early on, and being the youngest in a large family, I have a fair share of weddings under my belt. Katherine Heigl will have nothing on me by the time I’m through.
Due to the ever present question of “what is appropriate wedding behavior”, I felt it only fair to bestow my wisdom and expertise upon the masses.
What not to do at the next wedding you attend.
Don’t be “those” bridesmaids. It makes people understand why you showed up solo.
Everyone knows you love cake. They don’t need to know how much.
Just don’t. Period.
Play along. Just because they can’t see you now, doesn’t mean they won’t when the proofs come out.
“She LOVES being single, what do you mean?” Don’t be the sad girl at the party.
And something I struggle with, and not just at weddings..
This is the maid of honor speech, not the champagne toast. It’s okay to put the drink down from time to time.
Honestly though, I do love weddings, and not simply because of the open bars. It’s great when you can share in the happiness of those you care about, or when those you care about are really happy.
So grab that bloody mary, celebrate with your friends, and just remember: photographers are everywhere.
