10 Reasons You Should Say ‘I Do’ On Your RSVP To A Wedding

While I've only been to three weddings, one of which I was in, and a fourth one coming up this spring, I've had an absolute blast at each one of them. Seriously, what's not to love about attending a wedding? As I've gotten older, I've definitely begun to understand that there's so much more to a wedding than just having a nice meal and dancing the night away with friends and family. You're celebrating a couple's journey and the beginning of their lives together as newlyweds. If you're in a relationship, going to weddings definitely makes you think about your own future and it's also a great way to get ideas about what you want your wedding to be like someday.

Here are 10 reasons you should say 'I do' on your RSVP to a wedding.

1. It’s a privilege to be invited to share this special time for two people.

There's usually a limit as to how many people can be invited to the wedding and you're lucky enough to be one of them, so you should definitely show your gratitude and attend. Plus, seeing the bride and groom say, "I do" at the wedding ceremony is something extremely special and emotional, and is an honor to be able to be a part of.

2. The bride and groom have spent countless hours planning everything to be absolutely perfect on their special day.

So why wouldn't want you to be a part of it?

3. You get to see friends and family you might not have seen in a while.

Weddings are a great opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones and share this special experience. It's a special time to get to see family or friends you might not have seen in years.

4. You’re guaranteed to be fed.

At all of the weddings I've been to, there is always a variety of delicious foods and tons of it. There are countless appetizers, main courses, desserts, you name it.

5. You get to show off all your dance moves you’ve been hanging on to.

If you're attending a wedding, there's bound to be a dance floor and some type of DJ at the reception. Once people have gotten a chance to mingle and take pictures, one of my favorite parts about the wedding reception is getting to take off your heels, dance the night away and be a total goofball.

6. If you’re 21, you finally get to fully indulge in cocktail hour.

Say goodbye to the non-alcoholic Shirley Temple and hello to the glass of classy wine.

7. You get to get all dressed up in fancy clothes and look your best.

Wedding= shopping spree am I right?

8. There are always crazy stories.

Whether you caught the bouquet and were the next person to actually get married or you met your future husband or wife at a wedding or even were dancing so hard you fell on your face, there are always great stories to bring back from weddings.

9. You get to meet people.

Whether you're at a family wedding or a friend's wedding, you're bound to be introduced to tons of people you've never met. Maybe you'll finally get to meet the groom's family or make a new friend or meet someone who will become more than a friend in the future.

10. You can get ideas for your future wedding.

It's almost impossible to attend a wedding and not find yourself thinking about your own future and where it lies. You might find yourself wondering what season you would have your wedding in, what type of food you would serve, who your bridesmaids and maid of honor would be, etc.

I'm so excited to attend my cousin's wedding this coming spring. These 10 things are definitely on my list of what I'm looking forward to.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
