You’re single and you’ve made it through a few winter weddings, but just when you thought it was over, here you are again. Smile big, it’s spring wedding season. It’s an uphill climb ladies, time to make it through like you’ve been doing this for years (maybe you have) and use our single’s drinking guide to surviving wedding season:
1.) You are not lonely. You are fun. Drink to that.
2.) Time to channel your 21-year-old self. Try every cocktail offered, and be open to all types of new and tasty drinks.
3.) Remember, it is the bride’s day after all. But you can still indulge, don’t pass up that fancy champagne being served. You deserve it.
4.) Not a bubbly person? Hit the bar.
5.) Unlike the bride, you do not have over one hundred eyes on you. Take advantage of your “under the radar” status and let loose.
