However, the average wedding guest or worker will thankfully have a little less responsibility than planning the entire event. What matters is they fit their attendance well. It matters that they bring the most etiquette they can to proceedings. This can be easier said than done. However, with the following advice to steer you right, you’re sure to enjoy a pleasant time and be the best wedding guest possible.
It’s important to be respectful. Even if you have been hired, keep in mind that this is a special event that the guests are hoping to remember for the rest of their lives. The event is not about you. Do nothing that will steal the limelight, and don’t be concerned with networking. Be polite, calm, balanced and even in the face of strange hostility from a drunken guest, smile and remove yourself from the situation. When meeting the bride and groom, respect their time. While they will be genuinely pleased to see you there and will thank you sincerely, their time must be respected. They have many guests to speak to, and much to do. These questions a dj should ask the bride and groom can help steer you with brevity if hired to work an event such as this. You will come across as respectful but also wise and cautious about your impact on the event, and that will only bring positive and welcome energy to the entire proceeding.
Being invited to a wedding, even to work, is an amazing thing. It’s the most intimate event of two people’s lives past birthing children, meaning that you are being allowed access to a very private moment in a families story. If you treat this with care and dignity, and realize the profundity of the entire affair, you will likely feel comfortable there and enjoy the show.
Discipline is one of the most important things you can bring with you to a wedding. This is not in the interest of being militant and uptight, but rather being able to withdraw temptation. This might mean refraining from flirting with anyone despite the alcohol that is pouring, as families talk and know when something untoward takes place. This is of cosmic importance if you’re working at the event. Even if there’s a free bar, you must also be very careful not to excel a safe amount of drinks. People might get very drunk at a wedding. If you’re not one of the inner circle there, you should not consider this to be a right you hold. Tempering yourself allows you to celebrate with a sense of respect for the event, and allows you to bring your best self to the entire affair.
With these tips, you can be sure that all and any weddings you attend in the future are exercises in fun and peace.
