The 10 worst mistakes as a wedding guest and how to avoid them

As a wedding guest, make it clear to you first: the wedding is perfectly planned and it is not uncommon for the savings account to be completely plundered or even a loan taken out for the big day. The expectations of bridal couples are high – people always talk about the “most beautiful day of their lives”.

All the more annoying when one of the guests misbehaves at the party.

So here comes our ultimate etiquette for wedding guests in the form of the 10 worst mistakes.

1. Constant moaning

The 10 worst mistakes as a wedding guest and how - The 10 worst mistakes as a wedding guest and how to avoid themAnyone who is invited to a wedding as a guest should behave like this.

And that means: Even if it’s not always your own taste, you should refrain from negative comments. We have in ours what that can be Bullshit bingo for the wedding collected.

Inappropriate comments are not only disrespectful to the bride and groom, but also quickly put other guests in the mood.


2. Drinking too much

Of course, this does not mean water! Nothing is worse than a bunch of drunk guests who have crossed their line.

It is embarrassing when there is also rampage or loud roaring.


3. Wear white

It is an absolute “no go” to wear white to someone else’s wedding – especially of course no white or cream-colored dress. This color is reserved for the bride alone.

The only exception: If, for example, it is explicitly asked for on the invitation, e.g. for a hippie-style wedding party.


4. Too short, too much, too deep

When it comes to the style of the outfit, the wedding guest should also adhere to a few rules. In a church, for example, your shoulders and knees should be covered.

And otherwise it is important not to wear a cleavage that is too deep or to confuse a dress with a belt.

For men, shorts and jeans are taboo, as are socks in sandals, which are popular in summer.


5. Play the photographer as the wedding guest

Has the bride and groom booked a professional photographer? Great, then he’ll do all the work. It is therefore not necessary to want to capture every moment in the church or in the registry office and thus possibly hinder the professional.

Lean back and relax – you will certainly receive pictures of the bride and groom later on.

6. Take control

Again and again a phenomenon: some wedding guests simply have to take control and try to enforce their own claims or wishes.

Often it is the parents who interfere too much and “just want to help”. This only puts additional stress on the bridal couple and sometimes even messes up the entire planning.


7. Be late

There are of course factors that no one can influence. Nevertheless, you should leave early for a wedding and allow for a time buffer for traffic jams, etc.

It is simply rude to be late for a wedding. And especially at the registry office or in the church, this does not go unnoticed.

8. Disregard wishes

Did the bride and groom expressly only want money? Then you should definitely stick to it.

A wedding is expensive fun that needs funding. Possibly the bride & groom expect to receive a few euros from each.

Arriving with a set of pots, for example, doesn’t help anyone. Be sure to have a look at our article “Creative money gifts ideas” past.


9. Embarrassing games

Let’s be honest: who would still want embarrassing games at their own wedding? Please always remember that the styling and outfits must not be damaged.

And if the couple asked NOT to have any games, they must accept this as well. Then better with one Wedding surprise score …


10. Bring someone with you

This happens more often than you might think: Wedding guests simply bring other people who were not invited.

So we say it again for the sake of completeness: something like this is not okay and must not happen!

We hope to give you as a wedding guest a little clue in things “Etiquette at weddings” to have given.

Of course, the personal taste and style of the bride and groom is always important. The individuality plays a big role and so some of the things mentioned above are possibly allowed. If in doubt, ask the bride and groom to avoid embarrassment.

Have fun as a wedding guest and enjoy the time!
