Tuxedoes, cake, dresses, cake, showers, cake, gifts, cake, bachelor parties, cake, and the list (and cake) goes on. Summer is the one season we all get excited about…until we start looking at our calendars and realize that the number of weekends without weddings is far fewer than the number of weekends with them.
When you’re in your twenties and thirties, weddings multiply faster than Gremlins who are fed after midnight. All of the girls from your sorority need you in their wedding, or all of your bros from the campus ministry Bible study you were involved in felt led to pop the question around Christmastime and, of course, their brides all want June weddings. You’ve found yourself struggling to schedule a check-up at the doctor, let alone family vacation.
If your summer is packed with weddings galore—for whatever reason—this GIFs post is for you. Godspeed, friend.
