Advice needed, please! I have been invited to a wedding in a couple of months and I suffer from social anxiety in a big way. I know the groom well enough, and his wife to be a little. They are both wonderful people and I'm really touched to have been invited. His sisters also work in our local shop and they are also very nice people who I see when I go into the shop. I know the groom's mum as well and she lives very close to me. But although I know these people, it's only the groom that I actually have sat down and chatted with on numerous occasions. I am scared stiff that I need to walk into a party and not really know anyone. How do I strike up conversations all evening with strangers? OMG! What do I do?
