Rules Every Wedding Guest Should Know
There are several rules that you as a guest of marriage ceremony should be aware of regarding how you should conduct yourself at a wedding. You might be familiar with most of these rules but, you might not be knowing all of them.
The first wedding rule for all guests is that they should not do anything that will destroy the wedding experience of the bridal couple because it is their day and nothing you do should in any way interfere with that.
The following are some of the wedding rules that every wedding guest should know:
== Respect ==
Among the very many things that are required of you, respect tops the list. When you go to a wedding, you should show respect to all parties in the ceremony and even at the reception.
Be courteous to any differences that might arise whether they be on traditional or religious grounds. You see/find some things that you consider unusual in a wedding, do not try to mock it because you never know why the bride couple decided to include it in their marriage.
== Timing ==
It is critical that you keep time as indicated on the wedding invitation. Ensure that you arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes before any related wedding activity starts. Take this minutes to find a position to sit and in an orderly manner.
Most wedding events are organised with a tight schedule and hence if you deviate from their timings, it could prove detrimental to the organisers.
== Politeness ==
When introducing yourself, be polite. Make sure that you use the right techniques/terms to present yourself and how you are related or happen to know the bride or the groom. By so doing, you will introduce yourself to the class to which you belong for such an important event.
= Don’ts ==
Maybe these things might seem ordinary to you, but it is crucial that you avoid the following things in a wedding:
*Never get drunk – you should not under any circumstances under the blue sky get drunk in a wedding ceremony. If you get yourself drunk, there is nothing good that can come out of you, but the high chances are that you will only embarrass either yourself or the bridal party.
*Do not over eat – another thing to avoid at the wedding is not to over eat. The bridal party must have sacrificed a lot to ensure that all their guests eat well so it will be vulgar of you to eat more than you ought to. If you know you take large shares of food, then ensure that you eat before going to the wedding.
* Never duck to the aisle - you might have seen some people duck out to the aisle when the bridal party or bride are walking down the aisle. Yes, you might want to capture the best photo of the day, but you should never try to take it when the bride is walking down the aisle. This is her moment as she is walking down to meet the love of her life, so do not interrupt the eye contact between the love birds. If you must take a pic, take it from your seat.
