Wedding guest (referred to as Wedding Guest List) A guest who is officially invited to an engagement or other social function held in a particular venue. Usually a list of guests is issued by the bride-to-be's wedding party company. This list of guests is called the wedding guest list. These lists are used to plan for the entire affair including the catering, entertainment, and wedding reception. The list also includes the likes of groomsmen, fathers, uncles, aunts, uncles, and best friends. There are many other invited guests who are not included in the list.
Etiquette for wedding guest etiquette is simple. It is never appropriate to leave an invited guest waiting for his/her turn. Etiquette demands that the invited guests be attended to promptly. If there is a live band, there should be an announcement that they are playing at the wedding. Announcements such as these make it clear that the wedding guest should be waited on until the band or live band finishes performing. In a private and more intimate wedding, it would be appropriate to personally welcome each guest.
For more casual weddings, there are no formal etiquette rules regarding wedding guests. If the bride and groom met at a restaurant, the gentlemen should wait for the girls. Etiquette does not require waiting for the best man, since the gentlemen typically bring the best friends and siblings. It is considered very rude if the bride and groom share a table with strangers. There are exceptions to this rule in the case of long-term friendships such as those between a brother and a sister. In these cases, the etiquette is to politely give the other a very warm welcome.
If the wedding guest has traveled a long distance to attend the ceremony, it would be very nice to send them a gift, but it is still considered very gracious if the gift was done at the ceremony. This is especially true for couples traveling in different countries. It is very nice if the wedding guest can take along their own small gifts, such as jewelry, perfumes, or even a small souvenir from their country of origin. This shows that they were able to share in the bride and groom's celebration.
Some guests may be hesitant to accept being seated close to the bride and groom, as they feel it will be uncomfortable for them. If you have your own personal seating plans, you can always reserve a room at your hotel or another location that offers a more comfortable sitting arrangement for guests. You can then personally welcome each guest during the ceremony. This way, you do not have to worry about whether or not the person is going to enjoy being close to the couple.
If the wedding guest cannot make it to the wedding, they can always drop by the reception to sign their attendance and add a little extra surprise. It's nice when someone can drop by just for fun, instead of making it a huge task for everyone. To do this, all you need to do is send an email or make a phone call to the venue with your request. Then, tell the receptionist to tell the guests that you would like them to bring a present to the wedding.
Sometimes, couples will ask their friends and family to attend their wedding. Some people are unable to come due to any extenuating circumstances. In these cases, it can be helpful for the couple to offer to compensate their friend or family member. Many couples do this to make sure their friends and family members feel included at the wedding, and it is a great way to thank them for attending.
Guests can wear many different types of dresses, as long as it does not interfere with the ceremony. If the guest wears a very extravagant dress, it might be a good idea to suggest that they leave a bit of their wedding dress at home. This way, it will still look nice, but the wedding party will not have to take care of it. The bride may even wear her gown to the reception, and the groom could wear his suit.
