Consider your relationship with the groom and any other friends who might be there. I’ve had a good time at weddings alone before even when I wasn’t incredibly close with the other guests. I had a good time meeting the couple’s other friends because they were “good people” — you know, friends of friends and all have similar interests or personalities. Then again, it’s gone the opposite way too.

Another option is paying or helping to pay for your Boyfriend or Best Friend to go. Whenever I’ve been a +1 at a wedding my SO wanted to attend, he paid for my travel costs. That’s between you two, but I’d suggest considering it.

It sounds to me like you’d really LIKE to go…so I would consider taking mary-alice-me’s advice and offering to help with bf’s expenses so that you could both go.  I’ve had tons of fun at weddings of people that I wasn’t the closest to anymore…it was great catching up with old friends!

And it could be a little mini-vacation for the two of you???

I think it would be fun if you went! Even if you did go alone.  You might see old college friends that you can reconnect with and you don’t have to play babysitter to the Boyfriend or Best Friend while youre chattin away! 

This can also be an opportunity to network…you said your a wedding photog, and when people ask what you do (cause I know they will) maybe you can meet a future client (start doing destination wedding or something) you never know!!
