Wedding Etiquette

As wedding season is in full bloom now, I just wanted to share some tips from experience I have on proper wedding etiquette. It’s been almost 2 years since i’ve been married (Wedding posts HERE) , and as i’m attending tons of weddings starting next week , I thought I share a few tips…some may be obvious and some not so much. Knowing these tips can help ensure you help to make life for the bride and groom easier and happier!

1. RSVP

It’s easy to just text the bride & groom your rsvp, but the bride and groom have so much to remember it’s easy for that text to get lost amongst all their messages about flowers and caterers. Actually sending in the card helps the bride & groom keep track of all their guests, so make sure you send in the rsvp card on time! Most likely the bride spent a lot of time (and possibly money) on creating beautiful invitations, so something as simple as sending in your RSVP card on time can mean the world for the bride (and groom). Trust me, there is nothing more frustrating than trying to track down guests to see if they are attending the wedding!

2. Registry

When purchasing a gift, it’s best to get them something from their registry if they’re registered. That way the bride & groom will be happy knowing they got exactly what they wanted and you don’t have to stress about finding the perfect gift. If you buy them a large gift, consider having it shipped to their house so they don’t have to worry about how to fit the large item in their car after the reception. Also keep in mind that there are some couples that do NOT register in hopes that they will receive monetary gifts, but if you are unsure it’s always best to ask someone from their court.

3. Bringing other guests

Unless it specifies on the RSVP card that you can bring a +1, I would ask the bride and groom before showing up with an uninvited guest. (No wedding crashers please!)

4. Wearing white

Traditionally only the bride wears white, but if you have a cute white dress you want to wear, I would make sure the bride is okay with it first before showing up in white to the wedding.

5. Don’t be late

This one seems obvious but at weddings more often than not everyone tends to assume everyone else will be late, so by the time everyone actually gets there, the ceremony is pushed back an hour or so. The bride & groom still has to do family portraits and group shots after the ceremony, so be mindful and please be on time!

6. Let the bride shine

It’s natural to want to look your best at an event, but I would avoid any extremes that will have you as the center of attention. Whether it be an extreme plunging neckline, an extremely short dress, or an extreme pops of neon. There are ways to dress elegantly and beautifully so that the bride can shine on her special day.

These are all general tips of wedding etiquette that I personally experienced on my wedding day or have noticed from other weddings. Keep in mind that everyone is different, and not one wedding is the same. Keeping these tips in mind, I hope you enjoy this wedding season!
