Have you ever gone to a wedding without your significant other? Or have they always been by your side as your plus one? Do you never, always, or sometimes go to weddings by yourself? Next Question: Do you play the “I don’t know what do you want for dinner?” game? Start from the Beginning: Never,...

We did! It was his son's wedding. It was at city hall, but my fiancee was the best man, and the bride's mom was MOH. We went to a steakhouse for dinner, just 18 people. The bride still wore a pretty dress, and so did her 10 year old daughter, and her 12 year old son wore an outfit that matched his new stepdad's. Their 6 month old baby they had together was there too! I also made sure her kids and she knew i'm their grandma now too!!

Just ours 😁 my FH comes from a large family but is the last to get married and I have 1 brother and 1 cousin who aren't married, but my brother isn't quite there yet and my cousin is single. Most of our friends are already married so no weddings in the near future except ours lol.
I went to one solo. I wasn’t dating anyone at the time and was not given a plus one. It didn’t bother me much since I knew one other couple who would be there and it was in NJ (I’m in Maine) and on Black Friday, so I visited my grandparents (in PA) for Thanksgiving and then went to the wedding. It turned out I was supposed to have a plus one (I was supposed to just know apparently). If I had known, I did have someone I would have loved to bring, as there were parts that got awkward and I was one of the only ones not to have a date. I also was friends with the brides sister, so didn’t know many people. My friend and her husband were cool with me just hanging with them, thankfully, lol.
I have been to several family weddings recently where I went with my parents. That is normal in my family though that unless you are engaged/married you don’t get a plus one. We have a huge family and everyone invites everyone, so they have to cut down numbers somehow! I will be the first one on both sides of my family to only invite immediate family as I could easily fill the venue with just my family, lol.
We go together when we can but sometimes the logistics just make it impossible. My FH only has 2 weeks of PTO per year while I have 4 and we always take at least 1 week for a trip with his family. My best friend got married in Costa Rica last year, 2 weeks before our trip with his family. There was just simply no way he could get the time off work. Its kind of the same this year too... my aunt is getting married after 20 years with her partner and they are doing it in Mississippi (we are in WI) on the anniversary date which happens to be a Wednesday. with our own wedding in September and 2 cruises in December (our Mini moon and the family cruise) he is flat out of time off so I will once again be making the trip alone. As much as I would have loved him to be with me doing romantic crap in Costa Rica or just a refreshing night away for my aunts wedding I'd rather him keep his job lol
