Singles hoping/looking to have fun at a wedding reception will be in for a massive shock. As it turns out, wedding receptions (where people dance, party, and have fun after the ceremonies) are not a good place at all for single and/or "stag" people to be at. More often than not, singles who attend wedding receptions are often brutally rejected by the other guests of the wedding/wedding reception, refused dances, and treated like sewage sludge. It is particularly common in especially the northern United States of America, including, in particular, states such as Wisconsin, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, Alaska, Idaho, Vermont, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, North and South Dakota, and Nebraska.

I prefer mingling with babes at funerals. At least I know ONE of them is single.

I see nothing wrong with going to a wedding reception single. I wouldn't be trying to hook up or doing anything inappropriate. However, it's nice to spend an evening celebrating your friends love and enjoying a glass of wine in good company.

At wedding receptions, people, only those who are hooked up with someone have any chance of having a good time, especially when it comes to the dancing. As I am sure everyone knows, one of the main activities of a wedding reception is social dancing. That includes slow dancing, smooth jazz, occasional country music, and such, which is why the vast majority of wedding receptions are held at a place that has a dance floor, most commonly at banquet halls, though some receptions do take place outdoors, especially those that take place under one of those circus type tents (sometimes referred to as a "big top"). When it comes to the dancing, singles generally have absolutely no fun and no luck at all.

For singles, all of the fun that the wedding/wedding reception has to offer runs right into a concrete wall right at the end of the dinner.

For singles, the dancing part is nothing but heartache, rejection, put-downs, and sometimes even outright aggression from other guests.

For singles, the dance time of a wedding reception has an atmosphere more equivilant to that of an after-school detention than anything else.

To make matters worse, in pretty much the entire northern half of the country, especially in states such as Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Alaska, Montana, Maine, North Dakota, and Vermont, society has a more drinking culture than a dancing culture. In the northern states, people don't dance at all, neither at wedding receptions nor at even common dance/DJ clubs. Instead, they drink, and they drink, and they drink, drink, drink, drink. Until they are wasted drunk, until they are throwing up left and right all over the place, until they start causing fights and brawls, until they start making a gigantic mess of the whole place by breaking glass bottles on the floor, spilling drinks everywhere, dumping napkins over, knocking over cakes and desserts, until they are so stoned out that they can not drive more than 3 blocks without crashing and burning. And northerners don't just get wasted on beer. They also get wasted on whiskey, vodka, brandy, those liquor "shots" that they pour into those 5-tablespoon sized cups and then drink, and other 80+ proof junk, so often, the dance floor is totally empty by about 30 minutes into dance time.

I went to a wedding over the weekend. The only thing that pissed me off was the bride called out my name and tried to
aim the bouqute at me. Damn I thought she was my friend. Anyways I dodged it. I had someone throw one to me one time and it hit me on the ass. Does that count?

Oh I don't agree I've attended weddings single and had a lot of fun! And no one treated me badly just because I was single.

Now I know why my ex never took me to any wedding receptions with him.
That's proof enough for me, that they are good meeting places.

Really?! You call that a good time?! Drinking and drinking all night long?!

You won't think it as such a good time when you get busted by the cops for Driving Under the Influence of alcohol (DUI), or worse, wake up in the emergency room as a bleeding, bandaged wreck after having just been in a catastrophic accident!
