18 Things Twenty-Somethings Think About Weddings

So, you’re a single twenty-something and the drunken party photos and morning-after status updates in your news feed have been replaced with engagement ring selfies and first dance photos. Some of your closest friends are now engaged (thanks for rubbing it in, Facebook!) and you’re dreading getting those invites in the mail (because then it’s really happening). Once the invitations start arriving, your mind begins to race. Here are 18 things every twenty-something thinks when they’re about to attend a wedding.
