Want to keep guests happy on your day of matrimony? Avoid these 10 things your beloved wedding guests absolutely hate:
1. Weddings that have amazing décor… but it all stops there!
You can have the most amazing flower arrangements and décor in the world, but if the meal and the entertainment sucks, you are going to have everyone talking behind your back. People want to have a good time! Be sure to focus on having incredible music and a delicious menu plan.
2. Having to pull out their wallets!
Your guests have spent all morning at the coiffure… not to mention the pretty buck they had to spend on their outfit. So now… if the bar isn’t open for all to enjoy in an unlimited fashion (even if only for a few hours at the beginning) you are going to have a grumpy clan of guests for sure.
3. Too much time in between ceremony and reception!
If the wait in between the wedding ceremony and reception is far too long, your guests will be calling you all the names in the book if they have to kill time in between venues. Take this into consideration.
4. Boring and long speeches!
Keep speeches short, simple, humorous, and light. No one wants to hear all about everyone’s childhood details which will only put everyone to sleep. Get the party started!!
5. Sitting in uncomfortable places!
Take all the necessary time to properly plan out your seating arrangement! This is major. You want to make sure enemies aren’t seated next to one another… and you need to guarantee all guests are comfortable and can see the action.
6. Being obliged to take part!
No one wants to be forced into anything they don’t want to do. It’s great to invite all the single ladies up for some ‘catch the bouquet’ fun, but not in an imposed manner.
7. A lacking menu!
Whether you like it or not, wedding guests want to EAT, especially when they have been going all day long for your special event. Offer them a menu that will satisfy their hunger pangs… so they don’t have to stop for falafel on their way home.
8. Feeling uncomfortable!
Think twice about a ceremony under the hot sun… or in the direct wind. Wedding guests want to feel happy, at ease, and continue to look their best! The ladies don’t want their eyeliner running down their faces from the get go.
