No responsibilities in the bridal party with an open bar, a celebration of love and a dance floor? Bliss. Ten minutes of small talk with a happy couple that forgot they even invited the person who brought you? Amazing. The almost-rejects dinner table where everyone goes around to explain how they know they couple but every story somehow seems like a vague lie? Welcome to the plus-one of a barely-made-it. However, being a plus-one isn't always a dreamy evening of free booze and fancy appetizers. Sometimes you're held hostage by a bride who thinks weddings should last 48 hours. So, when a plus-one decided to vent on the gloriously judgmental and petty Reddit group, "Wedding Shaming," people were eager to pile on.
I was a plus one at this wedding a couple years ago. While the wedding itself was lovely, I think it’s a good reminder that even though your wedding is your special day, it probably shouldn’t be an entire day for the rest of your guests.
