Weddings naturally stir up so many feelings and sometimes unwelcome thoughts. In my short life, the weddings I've attended have had me pondering things like: Will my ex-boyfriend be there? What kind of dress is appropriate for an outdoor springtime formal wedding? Is it embarrassing if I don't bring a date? Will I ever find true love? You know, the usual.
