Mistress Culpeper’s Modern Albione Etiquette

Mistress Culpeper,
As I am sure you are aware, no doubt being at the top of the guest list, His Grace the Duke of York is to be married at the Gathering.
My station in Albione society dictates that I am to be present, however I utterly abhor weddings for they are some of the most dreary and boring of social engagements. Do you have any tips for feigning interest, making small talk, and generally staying awake?
