I just know that I've never been to an event like this sober and I've no idea how to get through it without a drink, let alone have fun.

I am not writing to be disagreeable or argumentative, but I have seen people wrongfully question their own sobriety, when they don't have a good time at these sort of events.

To answer a few general questions:
My girlfriend's step-sister is the bride so my girlfriend will be my date. She won't be drinking either, although she's told me she will find it hard so I do feel guilty about that too. We'll be sitting at the main table with the family, most of whom enjoy a few drinks (and then a few more) so I don't have that faint hope of a sober table, but at least I'm prepared for the worst
I'm definitely not in a fit spiritual condition, I've been going through something of a dry drunk phase which I'm working really hard to combat. I've done my steps once already but I believe I got complacent afterwards and didn't bother as much with the maintenance steps as I should have.
Noels, what a great and inspirational story, thank you for sharing, that gives me hope. No heels though, I'm waiting for an MRI on my dodgy knee lol.
Brock - I don't find that comment disagreeable at all, in fact it was very helpful, thank you.
Chelle, thank you. I like the idea of going with a helpful attitude. I will most definitely be back to share my ESH with you all, hopefully I can use the experience to help others who are struggling.
PaigeB, I'm laughing so hard at that - but you're not old enough to be my grandma
D'oh, I wondered where you were going with that for a moment there lol.
