Weddings are joyous occasions, but anyone who’s been to a wedding – or has had a wedding – know there’s always a fair share of drama too. For some reason, weddings can bring out the weirdest side of people.
Professional wedding planner Elisabeth Kramer has seen it all. To help you be the best wedding guest – and not the weird one – she’s sharing three things wedding guests need to stop doing, and three things they should start doing.
- Stop asking the same old questions. Like asking the bride and groom stereotypical questions of what their wedding colors are, what they’re wearing, etc.
- Stop treating vendors like “the help.” They are people too, be nice to them. Treat them with the same courtesy you’d give to any other professional.
- Stop giving unsolicited help and advice. It’s not your wedding – if they didn’t ask for your advice, don’t give it.
- Start thinking about how much weddings cost. The average cost of a wedding in the US is around $30,000. Remember that before you judge something about the wedding.
- Start remembering that there are 2 people getting married. Don’t just focus on the bride, ask the groom questions too.
- Start to let yourself have some fun. Let go and have fun!
