Guests like these can ruin your wedding
Perhaps the most stressful thing when you plan your wedding is the guest list. You want to invite all your nearest and dearest ones and you also want to be sure that no one will ruin your big day. Sometimes your parents also want to suggest some guests, like relatives you have seen twice in your life, or your significant other has a few friends that he or she simply cannot go without inviting.
There are a few wedding guests that can make your big day the worst day of your life. In order to keep your wedding in a good memory without faces you don’t want to see when you celebrate the day you said ‘yes’, stick to this list of people. Reduce the guest list and you will also save money, nerves and would spare yourself from headaches.
1 The crazy relative
We all have them, and these people almost always ruin celebrations. Just because they are your relatives doesn’t mean you have to invite them to your wedding. But, if they show up without invitation, seat them somewhere at the back and try to minimize contact. You don’t need to listen to the snarky comments from them. You should be happy this day!
2 The ex
You might be on a friendly basis with your ex, but you shouldn’t invite him to your wedding. If you invite him, or if your partner wants to invite his ex, that super nice girl which you don’t mind at all, remember he or she might unintentionally ruin your big day. Don’t play with fire and eliminate the ex from your wedding guest list. Don’t worry, he or she will understand the reason you didn’t want to invite him. It would be kind of awkward when some of your relatives ask who that guy or girl is.
3 The heavy drinker
If your friend consumes a lot of alcohol and makes a fool of himself at every party, think twice before inviting him. Such people are all about drinking and getting drunk and you don’t want a very drunk friend to make a fool of himself. Sure, you can ask them to limit their alcohol consumption, but do you trust them? Plus, you can’t control them and if there is an open bar, you know that this person would drink till he or she passes out. You don’t want some drunken fool embarrassing you in front of the family.
4 The girl who wants all eyes to be on her
On your wedding day, you will certainly want all eyes to be on you. But there is always this one girl who will want to upstage you. She will dress in the most dazzling outfit and will pay to have her makeup and hair done. In most cases this type of girl would wear a light color dress, if not white, which is plain rude. She will wear the highest heels and put an overwhelming perfume. It’s hard to predict who will be that girl – your friend, co-worker, cousin or maybe even sister. So if she shows up at your wedding, try to ignore her. Remember, it is your big day so your guests will pay attention to you, not her.
5 The grumpy person
No matter how hard you try to prove you are ready to be married, there might be someone who doesn’t approve. It can be your friend or parent and it can cause lots of stress. Remember, you are the only person who decide whether to get married or not, don’t let anyone weigh you down. Just make sure you make the right decision. Maybe your mom won’t be super happy with your fiance, or his grandmother gives you the side eye, at the end of the day, you two decided that you are going to get married, so they can only be grumpy.
While your wedding might be a family affair, when there are many kids, things can get out of hand faster than you think. You don’t want to spend the whole day shouting at kids because they won’t stop running even if you ask them. If someone will look after kids, feel free to invite them. Otherwise, children shouldn’t be on the wedding guest list. It may sound harsh and mean, but if we are serious, what’s worse than a screaming baby while you say ‘I do’?
7 The wedding Crasher
Although you don’t invite this person to your wedding, they can show up unannounced. If you don’t want to ruin your wedding, simply ignore them. Also, let your guests know that they shouldn’t bring along a relative or friend without asking you first.
