What should a happy couple do and what they should not do on their wedding day? How are their guests supposed to behave on such day and many other things will be discussed in this article.
A happy couple that does not want children at their wedding should specify this very clearly in the invitations that they send. This can be done easily by not mentioning the children's names in the invitation; it would be wrong to say that ‘Your children are not expected’. Instead of this, the happy couple could use the method of not mentioning their names at all, hoping that their guests will understand not to come with their children.
Regarding the wedding guests now, it is considered rude to offer cash as wedding gift. If the happy couple has used a gift register, where they have written what type of products they would love to receive from their guests, it is much better to purchase one of the products included in that list. Offering money and only money is considered rude, no matter the amount of money offered.
The happy couple should not open their gifts at the reception, or in front of other guests, not mentioning that they should keep their mouth shut, in case they do such thing.
If the wedding is postponed, the wedding etiquette does not say to send other wedding invitations with the new date on it. In case of such event however, it is recommended to announce all those guests that have said they will be there for your wedding, and also those who did not confirm this, that your wedding date has changed.
And if we are talking about a second marriage, the bride can wear white, regardless what the priest, her mother or friends say. The wedding etiquette says that wearing white on a second marriage is perfectly acceptable.
