Do you not hate it when people forget their manners at the wedding? How many of us are annoyed with guests who do not know the customary rules? This article focuses on the things people bring to weddings that tick-off wedding parties. If you go to a wedding, do not do the following things:
1. Wear casual clothes:
Unless you are in the Middle East, it is not customary to bring casual business clothes to weddings. Wearing a golf shirt and khakis are unacceptable. If you are planning a wedding, make sure you specify the type of clothing you prefer.
2. Envelopes without Money:
I’ve seen this happen many times. People are showing their cheap side by giving a well-wishing envelop with no money. Most weddings cost $150-$200/person. The worst thing you can do for the couple is to start them off in debt. If you are one of these people, do not expect an invite to another wedding. People do talk.
3. Nothing at all:
Oh yes. Many bring nothing to weddings. Worst case scenario in the well-wishing ceremony.
Many guests do not believe in giving money as a well-wisher. Instead, they buy gifts for the couple to hide the cost they pay out. If you are going to a wedding and are a guest, do research about going to specific weddings (Russian, Buddhist etc.) Examine the customary gifts you should give. Do not make a fool of yourself.
5. Bad Manners:
Weddings sometimes do not go as planned. Guests hardly contribute to making the process as smooth as possible. Some guests are late; others get into fights, whilst children decide to dig for gold inside water fountains. I’ve seen it all and there is no respect for the people who are getting married whatsoever.
