Wedding Guest Etiquette

A wedding

A wedding is one of the most important moments in any couple’s life so to avoid making any wedding guest blunders follow these five rules.


If you have been invited as a guest to someone’s wedding the first thing you will need to do is reply to the RSVP that you have been sent.

Try to do this as soon as possible and always physically send the RSVP back to the Bride and Groom, even if you have already verbally communicated your attendance to them.


Plus One

Unless already stated that you can bring someone with you to the wedding do not ask for a plus one. There is usually a reason why the couple haven’t given you this option already, whether it’s because the venue has a limited capacity, or the couple are on a budget and don’t want to spend money on someone they don’t know.


Wedding Gift

If the Bride and Groom have organised a gift registry try to give them a gift from this list. They will have specifically chosen the gifts on this list because they are things that they need. Plus you know that they will not be disappointed with your choice.

If you have bought a large gift for the couple get it sent to their home rather than bringing it to the reception venue with you.


Wedding Outfit

You don’t want to upstage the bride on her wedding day; she certainly won’t thank you for it.  Avoid wearing white, or anything that will draw attention away from the couple. Instead wear bright colours that will compliment the colour of the dress and make sure to take a good look at the invitations as they usually give an indication to the sort of colour scheme the wedding will have.



With the rise of social media networks like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat it is becoming increasingly more popular to broadcast everything that is happening in your life to the rest of the world. However, when it comes to a wedding the Bride and Groom will have paid a large amount of money to have professional photographs taken and will not want their special day to be shared before they are ready.
