5 Ways to Deal When You See Your Ex at a Wedding
Set out to slay. Make sure you’re dressing to impress. Beyond a killer outfit, whether you get your makeup done, get a bomb blowout or some sick eyelash extensions, feeling your best will inevitably make you more confident for seeing you-know -who at the wedding. And the next day, after you’ve conquered the night, treat yo-self at the spa. You deserve it.

Decide whether you’ll say hi or buhbye. You really need to go into the wedding with a gameplan. If you want to ghost your ex entirely, then have a convo with the bride and groom ahead of time and make sure you two won’t be breaking bread at the same table. If you think you can manage a quick ‘Hi, how are you?’ ‘Good? Okay well goodnight, was nice seeing you!’ then do it FIRST and preferably without too much champs beforehand. If you can keep it together and look classy as hell, then you can feel good about saying boy byeeee real fast.

Remember why you guys called it quits. Whether you were the one dumped or the one who did him/her dirty, you still need to remember that you’re no longer together. Simple as that. That means don’t even think about igniting that flame ‘just one more time’ for the night. Don’t think he’s doable just because he’s looking fine as hell in his GQ-get up.

Bring someone who will make you forget. Your old flame might have a new boo or maybe he’s flying solo, too, but no matter what, you just need to bring a +1 (and hopefully the bride and groom will do you a solid with that, knowing the circumstances) who will keep you preoccupied - so you’re not, umm, sitting in the bathroom crying. Bring someone who’ll make you laugh, who will come with his Channing Tatum moves for the dance floor, and who will totally gas you up if he comes in contact with your dreaded ex. Oh… and who will cheer you on as you catch the bouquet.

Drink. ‘I’m having so much fun, what do I need an open bar for?’ Said no one. Ever. The bar is your friend for the night. Have that Whisky Sour or a Dirty Shirley and enjoy it, but cautiously!! Also, maybe even spend some time talking up the bartender. If you don’t know him, he’d be a great sounding board for your drama. And who knows…. Maybe you’ll get lucky later. Gotta move on, right??! Kidding, kidding, kidding.
