You may go to a tonne of weddings or hardly any at all, but there are a few myths that always stay unanswered. We’re here to help!
- Wearing black
Good news! You’re favourite little black dress is definitely wedding-worthy. Many think that wearing black to a wedding means they are showing gloom instead of joy, but this is definitely not the case!
2. The couple is your go-to for wedding related questions
Planning a wedding can be a stressful time for the couple, and answering the questions of 100+ guest can be straining. If you’ve got some questions you need answered – check the invite or wedding website or go to the best man or maid of honour. Lastly, of course you can go to the couple, but once you’ve tried the other options first.
3. The gift registry
Some may think that buying off the gift registry is impersonal and they would rather gift something personal. The truth is, the couple would prefer you buy items that they have selected. Want a personal touch? Attached a heart-felt letter with the gift, so they know just how much you care.
4. Bringing a date or your children
This isn’t always the case, but most times the couple only intend to invite those who are addressed on the invitation. When it comes to weddings, there is usually a number of guests that the couple have to stick to for budget or capacity purposes, so they may not be able to stretch the guest list.
5. Organising your transport and accommodation
Many guests have travelled a long way to attend a wedding, however, it’s still your responsibility to organise and pay for your accommodation and transport. Many couples will reserve blocks of hotel rooms to receive a discounted rate for their out-of-town guests, but it’s still your responsibility.
