Surviving wedding season solo.

It's here...wedding season.

Honestly I love weddings, a lot. I just love, love.

Yes I'm cheesy AF.

BUT I DON'T CARE.

I love weddings, and as much as I love wedding I love dressing up...and an open bar. (c'mon you were all thinking it too...)

But when wedding season comes and you get the invite with the dreaded +1 and you're sitting over here eating your second grilled cheese polishing off the box of wine wondering if it would be socially acceptable to bring your family dog things can look a little bleak.

And suddenly it seems like everyone has significant others and you're going to die under the pile of empty boxed wines and it will take weeks for anyone to find you...and so the spiral starts.

Fear not all you single ladies (or guys, that's cool too, on a side note if any guys are actually reading this blog that's sweet, write a comment I'm genuinely curious if guys read this) there are tons of options and things to look forward to at a wedding if you're flying solo.

 

1. As much as a date is super fun...so is going with your besties.

I don't know if anyone else is in this boat, but the majority of my girlfriends are a very "for the girls" bunch. When you see those dudes on snapchat chanting "Saturday's are for the boys" most of us are at home thinking "you poor poor SOB's, we don't give a crap if Saturday's are for the boys, the girls didn't wanna hangout with you anyways..."

Rent a hotel room with your other single besties attending the wedding, go there to pregame, post game, and spend the next morning reminiscing over room service and Caesars about the ridiculousness that occurred the night before. Because unless you have a boring group of friends I bet at least one insanely hilarious, dramatic, or outrageous thing happened at that wedding.

2. No shame in your food game

Okay so you know at weddings how you're in your dress and trying to look all skinny and cute and if you're with your date sometimes you get a bit wary of showing how many burger sliders you really can eat in one sitting?

NOT TODAY LADIES, NOT TODAY.

No need to worry about grossing our your date when you don't have one! And realistically, I personally think this is a good way to pick out which guys are the cool ones. The guys that are down with how much you love food, and they love food too are the kinda guys that you (okay or maybe just me) wanna date.  

 

3. Going to a wedding and embracing the fact that you're attending alone not only allows you to meet other people who are attending, but also gives you total freedom to be completely yourself and meet other awesome attendees. Use this as a time to network, make new friends, or even allow the opportunity to meet someone you may not have been able to otherwise. 

4. Finally, just have fun. Regardless you're there to celebrate love between two people you love (hopefully...unless you're a wedding crasher then you should probably just go wild)

Hey there!

Welcome to the new and improved Blonde's Eye View. After being on a bit of a hiatus/break from blogging I've decided to come back full force on a different forum, Squarespace. Nothing wrong with the old forum, I just find Squarespace super user friendly, and am excited to start fresh here!

You'll notice a few things I've added such as a Local Love page that will feature different activities, restaurants, products, whatever it may be that are around Winnipeg. I love checking out the local scene, and Winnipeg has a craaaazy good one. 

Secondly, if you're a reader from my blog in the past, you'll know a big part of why I blog is not for anyone else, it's for myself. If you don't like what I write, don't read it, simple enough. So I've also added an online journal section of the blog. This will be more of a section for me to just spew my thoughts, ask for opinions, maybe feature other bloggers or content. 

So, welcome to the party readers! Let's get started.
