Unspoken wedding rules for guests
Being a guest at a wedding can be almost as stressful as being the couple.
There are lots of unspoken rules guests should follow such as RSVP on time, switch your phone off during the ceremony and don’t drink too much at the free bar.
Then there are the choices about what to wear. Hats can be particularly tricky as they can't be too large or they will block the view during the ceremony or cover other guests faces in the photos. Choosing the colour for your outfit can be a difficult one too. My advice here is to steer clear of white unless the couple have indicated otherwise.
Sometimes a dress code is included on the invitation especially if it's a beach wedding. If not then it is best to wear something formal.
Whatever you choose to wear remember that the purpose of the day is to be there for the couple and make their day one to remember. By being part of the day you are agreeing to support them as they open a new chapter in their lives. So just enjoy the experience.
Looking forward to joining everyone at Highgate Hotel, Creaton Northamptonshire for Days 3 and 4 of the NVQ Couples and families course, tomorrow.
I really enjoy being part of this assessment week organised by Civil Ceremonies Ltd. The assessment week can be hard work and requires real focus but it ensures that the Celebrants who take part have all the skills they need to create and conduct wonderful individual ceremonies.
See you all tomorrow !
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
