How to be the PERFECT wedding guest

Wedding guests: if you’re having a good time at a wedding, why not have a good time vocally so that the bride and groom feel smug that they have (thank GOD) planned the wedding to end all weddings? Don’t be too vocal though – you don’t want to be THAT guest. It’s a very hard line to tread. Here’s my guide of how to be an A* wedding guest; because if you love your friends, why not tell them that those origami swan table centres they’ve been busting a gut to make for a month, look just wonderful…? 

Things to say to the bride and/or groom:

  • ‘Oh, these parmesan-crusted arancini balls are just to die for’
  • ‘Wow, I’ve just never ever quite seen bunting like that’ 
  • ‘This is just the most beautiful candelabra I have ever seen’
  • ‘John Legend for your first dance is a truly unique choice’
  • ‘Yes, Loveshack is the best wedding dancetrack ever’
  • ‘I love your wedding favours and definitely won’t leave it in the toilet in a minute by mistake’
  • ‘I loved your flashdance’

Things NOT to say to the bride and/or groom: 

  • ‘I decided to cut out gluten, dairy, meat and nuts from my diet. As of yesterday. Do hope that won’t cause any problems with dinner…?’
  • ‘Should you really be wearing white?’
  • ‘His brother got all the good looks didn’t he’
  • ‘When is dinner?’
  • ‘Good for you for deciding not to do the whole crazy wedding diet thing’
  • ‘I won the table bet on the length of all the speeches!’
  • ‘Are these napkins swans, or just folded napkins?
  • ‘I didn’t get any of your cake, could you find me a piece please?’

It would be quite funny though…just not at mine ya?

Happy Sunday eve peoples. How apt – SUN….DAY. Fact for the day: today England was warmer than Ibiza.

I'm a 32 year-old newlywed bride, living in London. I recently got married (July 2016) and am here to spread wedding joy and worldly wedding advice to fellow bridelings who don't want their weddings to take over their lives. Let's laugh (nervously) in the face of bonkers wedding planning!
