I'm trying to refer to a marriage but I've used the word too much already in my paragraph so I need to find another word which I could use in a sentence like:
"I had the pleasure to attend to the -------"
In Spanish, I could say something like "tuve el placer the estar presente para tan feliz ocasión¨ but that´s really hard to translate with a dictionary. Many things could constitute a ¨feliz ocasión" (~ happy occurrence), but it's clear from the context I'm referring to the marriage.
Edit: Some clarification that I wrote below.
Imagine we are discussing the concept of "tragedy". Many things can be an instance of a tragedy, for example death, a certain illness, a certain outcome of some situation, they all can be referred to as "tragedy" with the appropriate context. I'm looking for the same thing for marriage, something in which marriage is one of the possibilities
