the top 5 best things about weddings

i've blogged about weddings before since i've attended at least 11 or 12 in my 26 years, and it's no secret that i'm a huge fan. honestly, i could probably go to a wedding every weekend and be happy as a clam (and as i mentioned before, after being a bridesmaid for one of my good friends this past weekend - total blast! - i will be embarking on my second wedding weekend and seeing my cousin get hitched this saturday). apparently, many people don't share my love for nuptials, but WHATEVER. here are some of my favorite things about i-do-days.

1. looking hot

come on, y'all. how often do you get to wear that little black cocktail dress, wear those stripper heels you can barely walk in (only to abandon them on the dance floor) and use your MAC makeup/look all dapper in that tux or suit? it's basically your chance to go all great gatsby for the night. you can't NOT love that.


white russian? whiskey sour? these were the only things bouncing around my brain as i entered the reception on saturday. wheeee!

3. cute strangers!

everyone loves them. and you can be whoever you want to be! *wink*

4. dancing with cute strangers and/or cute babies and/or cute old people

unless you're at a super-lame wedding, everyone is hitting that dance floor HARD. shout-ing, love shack-ing, dougie-ing, just doing their thing and having fun. sweaty hair, don't care. and if you think about it, wedding receptions are really the only acceptable place to do the cupid shuffle with uncle marty or grind with your friend's boyfriend. ...right?

5. yummy gourmet food

hors d'oeuvres are probably not part of your daily life, so hoard the shit out of those stuffed mushrooms and mini beef wellingtons. but make sure you save room for the stuffed chicken breast or filet mignon or omg i'm hungry (if you ordered the vegetarian dish, GTFO).
