Just kidding not all of them but a big chunk of them are in significant relationships, engaged or already married. My brother who is 2 years younger than me has been married for the better part of 5 or more years. Idk, I lost count. I on the other hand am 4 months deep into singledom and don’t quite know what to do with myself. So I’ve immersed the thought of dying alone with a pet turtle named Turtle Turtle Steele who I’d take for walks on a leash, by burying myself in work, blogging and copious amounts of left swiping on Tinder (and some right swipes too). I’ve been matched over 40 times in the past 3 weeks, so that’s good. I am currently holding conversations with 24 of those. Is that a lot? I don’t know there are 24 hours in a day so, I don’t think so. Last year, my good friend Amber got hitched in Cancun. And I’m starting to think destination weddings are the way to go. You weed out a lot of people and usually the hotel offers great deals as well as a wedding planner. All you do is find a dress and show up and hope your fiancé isn’t sick on the toilet with bubble guts when it’s time to exchange those vows. But any who, the next 3 months are prime wedding times, and we attendants need dresses!
Say Yes to The Dress
When I was planning my birthday trip to Miami, I went on Boohoo.com to find the perfect slew of dresses. I currently have about 6 that I’ve never even worn. That’s pretty much what happens when a dress only cost $20 and you need options. Boohoo.com is my number one GO-TO place for a quick and easy dress for a special occasion. This is followed closely by ASOS who also has wonderful sophisticated dresses for such an occasion as a wedding but is a bit on the pricier side. For a wedding I choose comfort. You are going to have that dress on pretty much all damn day and it has to be comfortable, especially when you pop lock it and drop it under a moonlit dance floor. Speaking of dancing for any weddings taking place from Summer to Fall, go for an open toe shoe! If you open toe it, you’ll last a little longer than in your 5 inch So Kate Christian Louboutins that pinch the hell out of your baby toes. Please don’t be that girl at the party who gives up on life and takes off her shoes. This is not a fraternity party and people will undoubtedly talk all the shits about you behind your back. (You won’t notice though because you’ve taken full advantage of the open bar). A mule is a great way to have comfort and style.
I’m actually really happy to see my friends settling down with these amazing men. I’m planning bachelorette parties and perusing Wedding Registries with ease. Note to all gift givers, a Nepresso Machine goes a long way, even if not on a registry they will thank you profusely for years to come. Any who, it makes me happy to see love blossom and that it’s completely possible to fall in love and marry the man of your dreams. It gives me a little hope, even in this cynical city. Who knows, I have a few Tinder dates lined up. We’ll see how it goes.
