I could really do with some advice... One of my long-time closest friends is getting married this summer, and I've been really looking forward to it for ages as she's marrying a lovely guy, lots of our mutual Uni friends are coming, the wine will be flowing, and it's basically going to be a brilliant party. However, I found out yesterday that her aunt-by-marriage has two sons by a previous marriage who will obviously be attending... and who both happen to attend the secondary school I teach in! (Friend had no idea or she'd have warned me far earlier). I'm feeling really awkward about this now... I don't teach either of the boys currently, but there's always a chance I may do next year. Obviously, I'll now be on best behaviour (at least until they've left) but part of me's now wondering if I should reconsider the dress I bought to wear as it's a little low-cut. Which seems ridiculous - I wore it to my boyfriend's family wedding last month and I figure if I was comfortable wearing it in front of his Gran (she said it was lovely!), then I'm sure it's absolutely fine. I'm also worrying about what to do if I'm introduced to them by first name - I'd probably be inclined to make a joke of it and say "Ah just for today - I'm Miss again on Monday" or something in that vein. I don't know, I just feel incredibly weird about the whole situation now - and quite annoyed as I've been looking forward to this wedding for ages!! I usually don't mind running into students outside of school, just smile, say hello and move on - but I feel like they're invading my social life, although since they're her family I'm technically invading theirs! Incidentally, I'm only 24 and in my second year of teaching, which I know shouldn't make a difference, but I do feel quite conscious about it sometimes, and think I would feel better if there was a bigger age gap between myself and the students. I've never had this situation before as I live well out of catchment area, and all my family live miles away! Has anyone had to deal with anything similar? Would appreciate any advice or words of reassurance!!!
