It’s wedding season!
As if you couldn’t tell from your Facebook feed continuously streaming new engagements, wedding countdowns and bachelor/bachelorette party shenanigans. We’re always excited to see new couples noshing at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop and watching those relationships flourish over tacos, enchiladas and even jumbo burritos.
But the wedding, well, that can be a little…overwhelming. And for those who aren’t planning on walking down the aisle anytime soon, weddings can be a reminder of why that’s a good thing.
So if you want to fast forward through this wedding season, we present you with a survival guide to get you through all those upcoming I dos.
Pregame at Fuzzy’s
You’ll need plenty of food in your stomach to get you through the big night, so load up on some tacos, nachos and more Mexican goodness to set yourself up for success. Maybe even order a margarita or two (but no more!) to get the party started. Just a suggestion.
Pick a fun date
If you’re not in a serious relationship yet don’t want to fly solo, pick a date with whom you’ll have a great time. Someone with impressive dance moves is always a plus. Weddings can be a bit nerve-racking for the relationship-impaired couple, so do yourself a favor and avoid all that and just bring that funny guy/girl you get along with best. This is only if you have a +1 though. Don’t be that person who shows up with a date when you weren’t allotted one. Please.
Dance, dance, dance the night away
The favorite question at every wedding is always, “Who’s next?” People are bound to ask your relationship status. A good way to circumvent that?
Dance like you’ve never danced before.
Not only is dancing a nonverbal commitment, it’s the best pastime ever. Bust a move, stopping only to breathe and enjoy the occasional beverage, and leave that joint as the king or queen of the dance floor.
Think before you drink
You should be fine if you loaded up on Fuzzy’s before you went, but it’s important to drink responsibly. If there’s a meal, eat it. There’s nothing worse than being the drunk guy/girl who gives an inappropriate speech and then falls asleep in the lobby.
Whatever your feelings are towards marriage or relationships, it’s better to just keep it to yourself. Besides, you’ll be too busy doing the “Macarena” to get into it anyway.
Destination wedding = vacation
Many dread the destination wedding due to the financial commitment, but turn that frown upside-down and turn the weekend into a much-needed vacation. Instead of “flying to Florida for a wedding,” you’ll be “vacationing in Florida.” Oh, and there happened to be a wedding while you were there.
And the most important survival tip of all is to cap off the experience at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. You can relive every moment over some chips and guacamole, or come in the next morning to reminisce over breakfast tacos.
