As a guest at a wedding, you are very often in a situation where you need to make small talk with people you have never met before, or don’t know very well. It can be tricky finding things to talk about, here are a few ideas.
Try to avoid anything too controversial like politics, but think of some current events that are around at the moment e.g. sports, celebrities, movies.
ask a lot of questions
Take the pressure off yourself and ask questions about them. Try not to sound like you’re interrogating them, be interested in who they are and some of their interests.
talk about your environment
Talk about things that are around you, that may be of interest. For example the flowers, the venue, a restaurant down the road that you’ve been to.
Being a guest can be awkward at times, but there’s always ways to make things fun for you and the people around you. Remember that the others are probably nervous as well!
Happy Planning! x
