Do you go to weddings solo?

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,...

    I’ve honestly never been to a wedding except for one when I was little so that doesn’t count lol. But I wouldn’t be opposed to going solo, I’m there to celebrate my loved ones, not to worry about a date.

    Neither one of us has been invited to a wedding. I went to 2 weddings when I was younger. My mom got remarried when I was 6. Then I spent 2 weeks with my dad in California when I was 12 and we got invited to a family members wedding. I would think if either of us got invited to a wedding, the other would definitely be the plus 1. Although all of his friends are also my friends now.

    Hi Iris! I think it's pretty common for married couples to be invited together to go to weddings!

    I sometimes go to weddings by myself, especially when I know several people there.

    Never. My cousins wedding was the same night as one of his close friend's bachelore party and her even came to that wedding with me and headed out during the reception while I stayed with my family.

    We've only been invited to two weddings since we started dating (and I'd only ever been to tiny weddings at people's homes with my parents before). One was his mom's, so of course we were both invited, and the other was one of my best friend's, and she invited not only both of us, but my mom as well. I would go solo to a wedding if he was at work or something for sure, and I'd encourage him to attend solo if I was busy.

    I've honestly never quite understood people being so angry about their SO not being invited, especially if they're not engaged yet. Like, I definitely understand being unhappy about your H/W not being invited with you, and, to a point, FH/FW, but if the couple getting married are on a budget, and they don't know your SO, I just don't understand being so upset to the point of not going for that reason alone about them not being invited. Idk, that's just my opinion. Would put the shrug emoji here but WW doesn't have one, lol.

    That's a great point, especially if your significant other doesn't know the couple getting married!

    I totally agree with this, Rita-Jean! If a couple doesn't know your significant other, they shouldn't feel obligated to invite them!
