A new wedding invitation throne on your desktop, you have chosen the dress, shoes and knight who will be your arm on the big day, but have you taken the time to review the instructions for the guest model?
1 Thou shalt not slack to respond to the invitation
As you know, organizing a wedding is complicated and often causes extreme anxiety attacks in the future couple. Do not assume that does not necessarily answer implies that you will present. And do not force your guests to pass you a quick phone call to confirm whether or not your coming. They have other things to do. If an invitation RSVP carries the words, it’s for a reason! This means “please respond”. Often, this application is accompanied by a deadline. Do not exceed it. Be correct and arm yourself with your best pen to respond in writing.
Namely: Traditionally we address his letter to the mother of one who invites us unless they are married that support the entire organization.
More excuse making a last minute gift, purchased in emergency in the highway shop! It is not recommended either to impose a gift of your choice. It might not please them or to duplicate. They will have enough to deal with aunt gift that will knit them a bedspread toupee!
A few weeks before the big day, you will take care to pay interest on a list submitted by the bride and groom or slipping a small envelope well supplied (a small check!) In a box provided for this purpose on the day J. The sum remains at discretion.
Namely: to find out where the couple filed a list or a “common pot” was expected, it is fashionable to check with their witnesses or their parents.
Does that seem obvious? Yet this basic principle is regularly flouted by fashionist as who cannot help but wear a pristine place on D-Day Even if the trend is white and you have a crush on a gorgeous dress: do you remember! The only person authorized for this is the “star” of the day, namely the bride. It would still be sad you commit this blunder. This command also applies to men.
Unless the front is broken down into the theme “white for everyone! »
It is also recommended not to so-called indecent dress as a skirt that let guess your full waxing or pest neckline that distract the guests!
Namely: Too late, you’re all dressed in white? Move away from the bride at group photos and take a few moments a colorful scarf to not attract attention on you.
Even if it does not fit your beliefs, it is important not to laugh, talk, texting, chew gum during the religious ceremony . If it really bothers you, no one forces you to attend this part of the ceremony. But if you do, do it with respect. The most thoughtful of us grow even participate in songs and possible readings. The bride and groom may have trouble finding volunteers for these tasks, you certainly will remove their weight by offering your services.
Namely: think to cover your shoulders and hide your cleavage in a place of worship.
5- You will cast moss head married
It is now forbidden to throw at the exit of town halls, churches and other religious places. Not only is this indigestible for birds but this causes a lot of dirt and can even éborgner someone! Except against-indication from the married, prefer throwing rose petals, real or paper. It is the same for car decorations, if the couple is not a fan of this tradition, no need to impose on them. This will also save you from lugging you for 3 months with your little neu-neu node screwed tulle your feedback!
Tip: do not forget to clean up after yourself. Take a broom to the staff of the town hall or place of worship to erase all traces of your passage.
No question of throwing neck married right out of the ceremony. Politely wait your turn and when it happens does not monopolize. You will have all the time to tell your life later. Do not forget to greet and congratulate the parents of the two new lovebirds. Also, do not overshadow without thanking your guests as your last swallowed small cabbage. While this may be difficult, try to quickly greet married before departure.
Tip: Do not be upset if married does not grant you a lot of time and they forget to thank you for your wedding present . Remember they are in a trance!
The important thing is the envelope! If the invitation was addressed to you, it means that children are not invited. This can revolting but it is the choice of the bride and groom and you have to respect it. Do not bother coming in with your brood under her arm just because you have not found a babysitter. To you get organized. If you are in doubt you can always call the future to be sure, but ban him to pressure her to accept. This will put her in a very embarrassing situation vis-à-vis other more organized parents. And let’s be honest, it will also allow you to spend a free evening.
It’s the same for other guests-encrusted like your new boyfriend that you met there two weeks or your little sister who did not know what to do that night.
Tip: Why not get in touch with other parents to organize a joint babysitting? This will reduce costs and allow your children to celebrate together!
Yes, it is not always fun to spend the evening surrounded by people you do not know or conversely that knows too. But it is true. The newlyweds had to spend a long time to establish a seating plan to match just about everyone, no need to disrupt everything. You will surely flow from the dessert.
But if your place would be really unacceptable (next to your ex and his new wife pregnant at the children’s table …) trying to discreetly share with another guest.
Tip: if you are really allergic to someone (your cousin that piqued your boyfriend) or whether you really want to bring you a guest (the cousin of the groom that you fantasize several years ), talk to your hosts, a few months before the big day to do so as necessary.
If the witness heavy task is yours or that you feel pushed by a mad desire to honor the newlyweds with a speech, do not fall into the facility. Avoid funny little anecdotes about you but humiliating for them, ridiculous pictures, settling of scores and other referring to eg too watered evenings, sorrows morning. Remember that the goal is to please the young couple and not to give the public a reality TV show what he wants blood, tears, sex! You will also find tâcherez unifying and understandable words of all: you are talking to an audience of 7-77 years!
Namely: we accept the basic rule: “do not do others what you would not want done to you”
10 – You will indulge and abuse point of the alcohol
Is it still necessary to remember a few safety rules? So yes: drink and drive, choose! The permitted blood alcohol level of 0.5 g of alcohol per liter of blood. And it goes very fast.
Apart from the obvious safety reasons, it is also to spare your honor and not to married and the other guests uncomfortable. In fact, you can reasonably manage your consumption to avoid verbal blunders, vomiting or unwelcome reconciliations: the groom, gay cousin of the bride, grandfather of one or the other, your ex, the officiating religious … Not to mention that you certainly do not want to see your soulographe head (panda eyes, haggard smile …) immortalized in the photo album of the newlyweds!
Tip: Know then dose your champagne glasses limiting but also balancing with petits fours and many glasses of water. Avoid alcohol mixtures.
