Am I the only one that thinks it is completely tacky to not give a single person the option of bringing a guest to a wedding?
It seems like all the weddings I've been invited to lately have all been just inviting me. I understand weddings are expensive and couples are trying to keep the costs down, but really....don't you want your guests to have a good time? I can see if it is a wedding of a family member or close friend that it might be acceptable because you would know other people there, but the last few weddings I have went to, I have had to go alone and I have known only a couple other people (or no one) there. Then you either get seated at the singles table (and you are the weird late 20yr old with a bunch of teenager/college kids) or with a bunch of couples...kill me...don't know what is worse.
My married friends all tell me that they don't see what the big deal is....but then they wouldn't be caught dead going to a party/wedding/social gathering without their husbands. They wouldn't even dream of eating in a restaurant alone. People also say that I'm being "over sensitive" about it-- but honestly, I think people who think it is okay have never actually been to a wedding (or any event) alone.....with no friends/family/date/etc to socialize with. Yes....I know...I could go and make new friends or look at it as an opportunity to find "the one", but really the thought of it makes me want to hit the bar.
I know it is all about the bride and groom on this day and not all about me, but my goal of my reception would be for my guests to have a good time at my wedding. Isn't that why people have the food, music, dancing, etc??
Ok...end of rant. Maybe I'm completely off base.
