Is there a way I could avoid that, and not insult my friend? Is this a normal situation in your country? A grown man has to come to a wedding of a family friend even tho he doesn't know the bride or the groom, or anybody for that matter!
Two questions: will there be hot brides maids? Open bar?

1)I don't know. 2)Yes

3) I'll remember that strategy.

@limba
It's really similar to romanian wedding. A couple hundreds of guests is the norm.

EDIT: Now that I actually found out what open bar means (me and my english), I know for sure that there will be one.

ok yeah that changes things then hehe free alcohol for 6-7 hours of your life and a dinner for the cost of a present or cash present.... hellz yeah its worth it! again you wont know anyone so probably wont met them again. go, get drunk as hell and act a fool! and try and bang any hot chic you can, in america weddings do seem to make them more loose.... maybe there too!

And I don't dance kolo.

Watch and listen:


The food will probably be OK, but to waste 6,7 hours of my life for food? I really hope some obligation will prevent me from coming.
oof. that looks...hectic.

maybe there's a way to just go to the ceremony to pay respects, and then leave when the crazy family festivities start? or vice versa, if the ceremony is the part you hate. show up just long enough to leave your present, mingle a little, and then go.

would they feel insulted if you missed any part of it though? or are you obligated to stay for the whole thing?

you know...i've eaten some pretty damn amazing food that was buffet-style. depends on how fancy the catering is and if they're replenishing as needed (instead of just getting all of it out as quickly as possible and then letting it sit). not all buffet-style banquets are gross

no no, i wasnt saying buffet was gross..... Family Style is basically buffet, but your own tables buffet.... gotta pass alot of plates of food before ya eat lol. Buffet is just usually alot cheaper, and wedings here we dont skimp!!!


ok like my oldest sister, reception started at 5pm, so we figured 12am cuttof time was sufficiant for the bar, and my dad even insisted on it being top shelf... he didnt question anything about the wedding, just signed checks... but when it came to the bar.... top shelf only!!!!! was his demand! 12am rolls around... most everyone is still there and drinking... dad says to the guy can we extend it? yes but its gonna cost... i didnt ask cost.... can we extend it an hour? yes, ok do it! 1 am rolls around, not quite the whole crowd, but about half anf our family still drinking, dad says to the guy, can we extend it an hour? yeah but this time.... I didnt ask what it will cost.... Can we do it? yes we can..... then 2 am starts to roll around, dad asks again can we extend it? this time it was a no.... they cant sell past 2am per their license...... so we had to go at 2am.......... i was 17 at the time, and i was WRECKED!!!!! i couldnt even sit in the chairs cuz the fabric of my pants and whatever it was on the chair were too slippery and i kept falling off....





good times......

Man, I got married at 22. The whole greek wedding pain. Hundreds of guest I dont know. Whole villages invited. Backward inbred looking farmer types tucking into the buffet like hungry pigs in a troth of honey. Fecking violins and screechy old feckers singing the same fecking songs they've been singing for the last 20000 weddings. The only fun bit is when all the guest suckers had to pin loads of money on me and my bride. Loads of it.... except the little old ladies doing the pinning are a bit shaky and the pins a bit rusty.

If one of my buddies told me they didnt want to come, I would have encouraged them to save themselves and stay away.

Needless to say, I was divorced 2 years later.

OK, thanks for advice, folks. One other thing, I can't drink because of health reasons, open bar or not.

@andromeda

Yes, my friend would be insulted if I left too soon. I can probably avoid the ceremony but not the celebration after). And I hate both parts!

Weddings are honestly overrated. You can still go and get a marriage liscence and not waste loads of cash on some lavish fairytale ceremony. I had my wedding with only 10 other people there. I wore my bathing suit when I took my vows.

Traditional weddings ar a pain. I hate dressing up, I hate having to mingle with people I don't want to mingle with, and every wedding I've been to has just been bad, bad, bad
