The How-To Lounge: Handling Wedding Season (When You're Not Getting Married)

Obviously, wedding season is upon us — not just here, but everywhere. Whether you want to avoid the fuss because you're feeling remorseful about your relationship status or you're just sick of hearing about engagements and marriage, it's still pretty impossible to miss out on it all together. But there are a few things to keep in mind while you try to get through the wedding season without going nuts. To see my tips,


  • If you're in a wedding or two this season, then there's really no place to hide. But you can take some of the frustration away by not signing on for more than you can handle. It really is OK to decline a request. And there's also nothing wrong with letting all those bridal party group emails slip through your inbox without comment!
  • If you happen to be attending any weddings this season, try to focus on the positives: free food and alcohol, a reason to buy a cute dress, good music (hopefully), and lots of eligible young guys.
  • If you're not going to any weddings but you're sick of all the wedding fuss, try getting your unmarried friends together for a fun night out and a gripe fest. Sometimes complaining can actually do a girl good.
  • Since you're not in the wedding circle, you have a much more interesting perspective on things marriage-related, so use that to your advantage in conversations and among your friends. If there was ever a time to decide exactly what not to do, now is it. So have fun with it, even if that means making fun of it a little!
