where what you would where if you were going to the evening of a wedding, thats what i did... feels a bit strange going to see bands, you feel as if someone going to ask you what are you doing here!

Yea i would defo wear something dressy. We were at my friends wedding reciently and this couple turned up in jeans and stood at the bar. It was so obvious that they were just there to suss the band out, not that anybody minded just for yourself to feel like you blend in with the crowd.

We crashed our first and last wedding lastnight and never again,I felt so uncomfortable! No-one made us feel uncomfortable but I just felt it! And then a lovely girl came up and asked us were we with the wedding, I nearly died! So we came clean and told her we were just listening to the band! Went to a showcase tonight and it was so much better, felt totally relaxed, could just sit back and listen to the band. So booked the ones tonight, the best men, they were brill!
