Wedding Etiquette Tips for Your Guest List

Creating the right guest list is absolutely fundamental to planning the perfect wedding – but sometimes, this may prove to be one of the most difficult tasks as well. How to manage your wedding guest list when you want to limit yourself to just a few people? We have some tips for you – continue reading to find out more.


·        If you decide not to invite certain people at your wedding, be very honest about it, regardless of what your reasons may be. You may be having financial issues with inviting too many people, or you may simply think you don’t know certain people enough to invite them at your wedding – whatever the reasoning behind it may be, it is highly important to be completely sincere when asked about it. Otherwise, you may fuel drama you really don’t want at your wedding.

·        It is also important not to give in to compromises. Your parents may insist on inviting more of their friends or distant relatives – but this is your wedding, and you shouldn’t accept any compromise. The moment you accept an “unwanted” guest on your list is the moment you open the doors to more of these cases – and the last thing you want is to feel sad about this on your Big Day.

·        Last, but not least, don’t let the people not invited ruin it for the ones who are. Focus on making your guests’ experience truly pleasant. This is a happy day for them, just as it is for you too – and they deserve to be treated royally for having taken their time to join you in this wonderful celebration.

Have you considered asking these questions as a bride?

As a bride, you probably have many questions – what colors to use for your wedding day, where to find the best vendors, how to choose the right wedding song, and so on. Of course, they are all important questions – all of which will find an answer throughout the wedding planning process.

Yet, have you considered asking these questions as a bride? If yes, here are the answers you have been looking for:

·        Is there an adequate way to kiss during the ceremony? Yes, and no. While you definitely don’t have to resume to a peck on the cheek, it is also advisable that you keep it short and sweet. Remember, your guests’ ages range from very young to elderly, so it is important not to offend anyone!

·        When will you take the wedding veil off? If you have chosen to wear a wedding veil (which, by the way, is not compulsory these days), you can take it off any time after the ceremony. In general, it is recommended that you do this before the reception, so that you can dance freely.

·        Is it appropriate to take your shoes off during the reception? Not quite. It may be OK for you to do this as a wedding guest (although it is questionable to do it even in this situation). But, as a bride, you will want to maintain an air of elegance and grace throughout the entire night. If you know your high heels will become painful at some point, pack a pair of cute flats that go with the rest of the wedding attire – changing into them is more than acceptable!
