Let’s not dis­sem­ble: the atmos­phere at ade­pends not only on the venue, decor, the amount of alco­hol and the pre­sen­ter. Guests — that’s who plays the most impor­tant role. Have you been invit­ed to acel­e­bra­tion? Super! Read this arti­cle care­ful­ly and you will not get into trou­ble.

Got ainvitation? We tell you what to do with it

When you receive an invi­ta­tion (usu­al­ly six to eight weeks before the wed­ding), don’t let him get lost on the cof­fee table. Check the date of the event and check with your cal­en­dar, and then decide whether you will attend the wed­ding. Whether you can be or not, answer the invi­ta­tion. A cou­ple needs to know exact­ly how many peo­ple they can expect for their hol­i­day in order to orga­nize every­thing in the best pos­si­ble way. The restau­rant orders the required num­ber of serv­ings no lat­er than two weeks before the wed­ding. Your reflec­tions may seem nat­ur­al to you, but they will add ten­sion to the process of prepar­ing for the cel­e­bra­tion.

Go with the flow

We do not always share the opin­ions and pref­er­ences of our friends and rel­a­tives. And nowhere is our dif­fer­ence so clear­ly man­i­fest­ed as in the obser­vance oftra­di­tions: some­one fol­lows in the foot­steps of moth­ers and grand­moth­ers, some­one does exact­ly the oppo­site!

Don’t run away when it’s time for the bride to toss the bou­quet or the groom to take off the garter, and don’t try to whis­per in some­one’s ear how ridicu­lous you think it is! Even if you are not going to catch the­bou­quet, go out into the hall and put a smile on your face. It does­n’t mat­ter what your true atti­tude towards these tra­di­tions is. This advice also works in reverse — do not talk about the impor­tance and sig­nif­i­cance of the tra­di­tion of throw­ing a bou­quet if the bride decid­ed to exclude this cer­e­mo­ny from the list ofen­ter­tain­ment.

At your wed­ding, you will do exact­ly what you think is right, right?

Phone to the side

We know how hard it can be to resist temp­ta­tion scroll Face­book feed or look in instant mes­sen­gers, share your emo­tions and pho­tos with friends. Even if the new­ly­weds encour­age guests to share social media pro­files and con­grat­u­la­to­ry posts in every pos­si­ble way, do they real­ly want to look at the hall filled with peo­ple on their phones? Not! They want their guests to attend their par­ty, social­ize and have a good time!

When you pick up the phone, you seem to say “I have some­thing more inter­est­ing than you here”. Of course, phys­i­cal­ly you are at the wed­ding, but men­tal­ly you are with some­one who is on the oth­er end of the phone. Attend the wed­ding, enjoy the moment and put your phone away.

If you absolute­ly have to send a mes­sage, do it as quick­ly as pos­si­ble.

Have some fun

Try! The bride and groom spend a lot of time think­ing about their guests. From menu plan­ning to enter­tain­ment selec­tion, it’s impor­tant to them that every­one has a good time.

And let’s tell you a secret, there is noth­ing worse than unused ideas.

Even if it’s not your ele­ment, let it take you! The new­ly­weds made a lot of efforts, they tried very hard to think through every lit­tle thing to make the hol­i­day inter­est­ing. Don’t give them a rea­son to be upset!

Read the invitation… carefully

Are you hold­ing ain­vi­ta­tion? Read it again. Cou­ples usu­al­ly do their best to avoid con­fu­sion. Only those whose names appear in the text are invit­ed. New­ly­weds may have a small­bud­get, so they are not wait­ing for your new boyfriend or your chil­dren with your hus­band.

Of course, the thought of attend­ing awith­out your part­ner can make you ner­vous, but trust the heroes of the occa­sion. They will put you at a table with like-mind­ed peo­ple or peo­ple of your age, which will pro­vide a pleas­ant oppor­tu­ni­ty to make new friends.

If your chil­dren are not invit­ed, do not be offend­ed! Book a babysit­ter and enjoy the night.

The best gift is the right gift

What to gift? Is this the most dif­fi­cult ques­tion when the case con­cerns any hol­i­day! Mod­ern new­ly­weds are hard not to please, because they cre­ate wish lists gifts you would like to receive! You don’t have to break your head. All you have to do is select some­thing from your wish­list — so you’re halfway there!

You shouldn’t be late

Not today! You can be proud of your habit of rush­ing every­where at the last minute, hop­ping on a depart­ing train, drink­ing cof­fee on the run, and rush­ing into meet­ings min­utes after they start. But mar­riage is a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent mat­ter. Only future spous­es have the right to defi­ant­ly and bright­ly appear at the door, attract­ing atten­tion to them­selves.

come to the cer­e­mo­ny site in advance and calm­ly take your seat.

Let white clothes wait for another reason

You may look absolute­ly stun­ning in white, but ais a spe­cial day for the bride, not for you. The invi­ta­tion may include dress code or the col­or scheme of the hol­i­day, and this will help you choose an out­fit that will look har­mo­nious and appro­pri­ate.

Do not block the bride and groom

Leave long sto­ries about the bride or groom for a more infor­mal set­ting, or for the final part of the cel­e­bra­tion. And after the cer­e­mo­ny, say your wish­es, just a few sen­tences of warm, sin­cere words, and give oth­er guests the same oppor­tu­ni­ty.

Control your cocktails

Yeswhen cham­pagne is on every cor­ner, and even an open bar next to dance floor, it’s hard to deny your­self the plea­sure of drink­ing anoth­er glass (or three). Some­times we try to quench our thirst with alco­hol! Do not refuse water and oth­er soft drinks on the table. Let the­ban­quet be fun, but with­out con­se­quences.


Even if you are a shy per­son or just picky about your com­pa­ny, try not to hide like a snail in a shell and run away to oth­er guests you know for a long time. You are all at the par­ty for the same rea­son, you are a close cou­ple!

There­fore, if you wish, you will def­i­nite­ly find a top­ic for jokes and light con­ver­sa­tions.

Take pictures, but calmly!

The cou­ple hired a pro­fes­sion­alpho­tog­ra­ph­er for a rea­son. And so that they and each of the guests receive cool pho­tos. First­ly, instead of see­ing smiles on the faces of your guests, their out­stretched hands with mobile phones are not very pleas­ant. Sec­ond­ly, you can sim­ply inter­fere with pro­fes­sion­als doing their job. Of course, it is not for­bid­den to save a few beau­ti­ful details and touch­ing moments as a keep­sake. But it is bet­ter to do it tact­ful­ly, quick­ly and accu­rate­ly.

When can you leave?

The­ban­quet usu­al­ly lasts about four hours. It’s worth stay­ing at least until the cake is cer­e­mo­ni­al­ly cut. Many brides and grooms are ready to have fun until the morn­ing and it’s hard to say good­bye to them. If you want or need to leave, you can find a close rel­a­tive of the bride (for exam­ple, her moth­er) and thank him for the hol­i­day. Ide­al­ly, before you leave, give the cou­ple anoth­er con­grat­u­la­to­ry hug!
