Wedding season is upon us, and that means it's the perfect time to put yourself out there if you're looking for a relationship (or even just a fun night, post-reception!). If you think about it, weddings are basically the perfect place to meet people, which is why hooking up at weddings is so common.
I spoke to professional matchmakers to find out what makes weddings so conducive to dating and hooking up, and the reasons make so much sense. I mean, for one thing, everyone is dressed to the nines. And for another, everyone in the room is feeling happy and celebratory, and they've all got love on the brain. On top of that, most weddings mean spending an evening in a room full of people you've never met before, who your friends clearly know and love. (Why else would they be there?) It seems only logical that weddings would produce a love connection or two, or at the very least, lead to a sexual connection for a night.
Here are some of the main reasons matchmakers agree that weddings are a great place to meet new romantic partners, whether you're looking for a hookup or hoping for a new relationship.
