In a world where ‘being mean’ is considered to be cool, people seldom value the spirit of goodness and true altruism. But that does not mean that we stop striving to choose the right path in our lives. Quite often, when we miss out on being good to others and to ourselves, we end up creating not-so-good memories. This holds true for brides as well. No doubt you are going to be the star of your big day. But that doesn’t give you the license to act crazy and not follow basic wedding etiquettes. Well, take this blog as a forewarning for all you brides-to-be and make sure you not make these mistakes before and during your wedding day.

  1. Don’t be a superbride

We understand your wedding is probably round the corner but that does not mean you should go all out and become a bridezilla. Some of us end up getting so obsessed with preparing for the wedding day that we tend to burn ourselves out. You can avoid this by engaging some of your trustworthy friends and relatives to share some tasks.

  1. Don’t be bossy with your bridesmaids

Your bridesmaids are not really your maids, they are people with whom you share close connections. Your bridesmaids are the ones who are going to be there by your side while you take your vows. You certainly don’t want to be bossy with them and keep ordering them to do things the way you want them to be done. Your bridesmaids too deserve to have a good time. Hence, be sure to not be too bossy with your bridesmaids.

  1. Don’t include registry information on your invitation

Registry information is useful for the guests who are planning to give you a present on your wedding. What could be better than getting the presents you really need for your wedding? But including this information on your invitation might not be the right thing to do. Instead you can choose to communicate this information through your mother, the bridesmaids or on the bridal-shower invite.

  1. Don’t designate a single’s table

Weddings are places where you get to meet different people. This makes it a hotspot for singles to get hitched. But that does not mean that you designate a single’s table at your ceremony and reception venue. Instead make your single friends sit just like any other guest of yours i.e. based on who would get along well with whom. This would be a more fulfilling experience for your single friends.

  1. Don’t make your guests wait for too long at the ceremony and reception venue

No one likes to wait for too long for anything. This holds true for your wedding guests as well. So, make sure you proceed through your wedding day in a timely manner. Ensuring that there are no delays at the ceremony and reception venue will help you avoid long waiting periods for your guests.

While you may be really occupied trying to follow-up on your wedding to-do-list, make sure you book your ceremony and reception venue in advance to avoid last-minute disappointments.
