Every bride to be would understand me when I say that planning a reception is a challenging task. Not only do they want the day they say their ‘I Dos’ to the love of their life to be perfect. But they also want each and every guest at this ceremony and reception to have an enjoyable time. Therefore they go out of their way to accommodate everyone. But what they don’t realize is that these guests tend to make countless mistakes that cause this day to be a disaster. However, what happens is some guests don’t even realize that they are making these errors. That is because they are unaware of the etiquettes they have to follow as guests.
Something that every bride does as soon as they confirm their wedding venue in Yarra Valley is sent RSVP cards. They do this with the hope that each and every guest will respond to confirm their attendance. But what normally happens is that guests tend to think that they only have to respond if they are not coming. This can also happen the other way around. Furthermore, there are other guests who assume that the couple knows they are coming. Therefore they never bother to get back to the couple. However, what they don’t realize is that they are adding additional stress to the couple. If they don’t have a head count they would not be able to make other decisions. For instance, the number of chairs or the amount of food needed all depend on this headcount.
When it comes to the wedding receptions couples tend to make sure the guests have a great time. This more often than not means that they would have an open bar. We understand that couples do this to ensure that the guests have a good time. But they don’t realize that some guests take it too far. This means that they consume more alcohol than they should. Furthermore, there could be some lightweights who may forget to eat whilst drinking. Thus, they too end up getting drunk.
Bringing a Guest
Different couples have different budgets to plan the wedding under. This, therefore, means that while some allow their guests to bring a date others simply cannot afford it. Thus, this is why they expressly state on the invitation the words ‘Plus One’. But some guests tend to bring dates even without consulting with the couple.If you are going to be a guest at a wedding in the near future following the above article carefully. This would thus help you ensure that you don’t make the same mistakes.
