Summer’s coming and, if we can’t be certain of the sunshine, there’s one thing there will be a lot of……….weddings!!!
If you’re single then there is often that dreaded feeling of attending yet another wedding without a date! Parship (www.parship.co.uk) have conducted a recent survey asking 500 single people their thoughts on attending weddings without a partner, offering an insight into the UK single’s attitude towards marriage.
60% of the 500 had previously been married themselves and over 50% of the 500 questioned said they still believed in the institution of marriage and would like to marry or remarry themselves. With wedding season practically upon us, it would be understandable that single people would resent celebrating someone’s else’s happy relationship, but over 57% of singles surveyed said they looked forward to attending friend’s and family’s weddings. 30% of the singles surveyed said it made them feel envious that they are not in the same places in their lives as the happy couple but overall it seems we as a nation are happy for friends and relatives who are getting married, regardless of our own positions in life!
If you are single and experiencing wedding invitation overload, why not come for a complimentary consultation with Bowes-Lyon Partnership to find out how we can assist you in finding your perfect partner. If you meet your bride or groom through us though, you have to invite us to the wedding……!!
