Going to see a band tonight at a wedding...anyone have any advice? I know we have to be discreet and not stay too long....do we just have a drink at the bar? How long do we stay?

when i viewed a band at another wedding we dressed like we were goin to a wedding and we stayed at bar. we could also hear band from outside reception room. it was a bit mad because a few weeks later i saw a wollie write her report on her wedding - the wedding i had been at!!! she even posted pics up.

We've all had to do it! Don't turn up in jeans. Dress as you would to the afters of a wedding. Good luck, hope the band are good!
