Receiving the invite (is there ANYTHING more exciting?) 

via GIPHY

When the panic-excitement-panic sets in pre-party

via GIPHY

You tell your girls you're 'just on the way' but in reality...

via GIPHY

And then hair and makeup will take AT LEAST an hour

via GIPHY

But you'll have to wear the obligatory props

via GIPHY

Then come the silly games (which you secretly love)

via GIPHY

Uh oh, you're drunk

via GIPHY

People had better move out the way, because when you move, you all move together

via GIPHY

When the stripper show your bridesmaid booked ends up like this

via GIPHY

There'll be that one person that drinks a little too much

via GIPHY

You'll realise that secret sharing in the loo IS a thing

via GIPHY

Midnight hits and OMG you're never going to be single again

via GIPHY

…  but you get to marry him (cue tears)

via GIPHY

So it's time to go to bed

via GIPHY

Waking up with a I-can't-believe-I-did-that feeling (group bonding, natch)

via GIPHY

Oh no, here come the Facebook photos...

via GIPHY

But the end of the hen (sob) means the wedding countdown is ON
