Wedding Etiquette Mistakes Most Couples Didn’t Know They Were Making

Most people have a basic understanding of wedding etiquette, however there are still a number of etiquette mistakes most couples didn’t know they were making. Rather than joining this group of brides and grooms, take the following mistakes into consideration and avoid repeating them as you plan your nuptials for the second time:

No Wedding Location On The Save-The-Date Card

Your wedding location is a key piece of information to put on your save-the-date card. It is difficult for guests to know if saving your wedding date is possible if they have no idea where it is! This is especially essential if many of your guests have to travel, whether to a location an hour away from your home or to a tropical island. Adding this vital piece of information to your save-the-date card also avoids being asked “So where is your wedding?” 100 times.

Your Wedding Is Mid-Day On A Friday

Having your wedding on a Friday is a way to save money, as Saturday is definitely the more expensive option. However, throwing your wedding in the middle of the day on a Friday means most of your guests will have to take off work. Rather than annoying most if not all of your wedding guests, have your wedding at 7 or 8pm if you must schedule it on a Friday. This makes things a little easier on everyone, though they might still have to take off to travel. Consider a Saturday wedding and see if you can’t make adjustments that won’t cause your wedding budget to runneth over. Saturday is the perfect wedding day for a reason–most people aren’t working, and it allows them to let loose and enjoy since the following day is Sunday!

Your Start Time Isn’t Really Your Start Time

If your wedding begins at 7pm, make sure it really starts at that time. Most guests are not going to be late to your wedding, as that is very bad taste. It’s also bad taste to make them wait because you want to make a spectacular entrance. Start things when you say you will instead of irritating an entire church or room full of people.

Your Wedding Reception Bar Is A Cash Bar

This is a huge, huge no-no. Your guests already bought you gifts and have traveled to see you get hitched, and you can’t even provide them with an open bar?! An open bar does not have to feature top-shelf liquor, as beer and wine is perfectly acceptable. Encourage guests to bring liquor if they want it, but for the love of all that is good and pure do not make them pay for drinks. That is a surefire way to upset everyone…and have them talk about how cheap you are.
