In a few weeks, Wedding Season 2010 begins. As it stands, we have six weddings this year, April, May, June, July, August, October and November. If you're curious, they are in Iowa, Virginia, Virginia, New Hampshire, London (Ontario), Iowa and London (ON, again). Once again, I'm a bit dizzy, looking at them all :)
The two London weddings are siblings- the bride is the August wedding and the groom is November. I knew the groom first, as we worked on a few campaigns together, and I became good friends with his sister when I was in London a few years ago running a campaign with him during Canada's Federal Elections in 2004. I'm looking forward to them, as I haven't seen the groom since I left Canada, but I saw his sister two years ago when she was interning in Baltimore that summer.
Here's my problem- the weekend of the bride's wedding, in August, Steve is out of town for a convention. I obviously really want to go to her wedding, but I don't want to go alone, especially to an out-of-town (and country!) wedding where I won't know many people. Of course, I'll know their family, and maybe one or two friends, but for the most part, I won't know anyone. I don't think I am very good in situations like that, where I don't know many people. I get a little intimidated, and I think that a wedding might make it a little more stressful!
I am debating what I should do. Should I just say I can't go? Should I go alone?
Have you ever been in a similar situation? What would you do?
