APPROPRIATE WEDDING GUEST ETIQUETTE!

22 June 2016

The wedding etiquette rules of the bride and groom are often discussed quite openly with everything from the wording on the invitation to the guest list. Consider if you are purely just a guest at a wedding – does etiquette apply to you? Well believe it or not, there are a number of rules that you should keep in mind as a guest in regards to what is and what isn’t appropriate! Here are a few…

RSVP BY THE DEADLINE

Being the best wedding guest that you can be starts from the moment you receive the invitation in the mail. A pet-peeve that we have all experienced at some point is having half your guest list not rsvp to your event leaving your catering and seat numbers in limbo – don’t be that person! In most cases, you have plenty of time to get your RSVP in so there are no excuses for sending it in late. If you are forgetful or tend to loose pieces of mail easily, make an effort to send your response the same day you receive the invite.

DON’T BE LATE

The bride is allowed to be late, you are not! Even though you know that this is common practise in weddings, you should still trying your absolute best to be there at the time advised on the invitation. There isn’t much more embarrassing then stumbling into the ceremony while it is already underway, and not to mention disrespectful to the couple.

WHITE IS A NO-NO!

You would think that this is one rule that would not need repeating, but here we are. Almost every wedding we have attended has had one or two guests break this cardinal wedding guest rule. If you aren’t sure whether your outfit is considered white or not, go with the latter and avoid wearing it. Don’t take any shine away from the bride; this is her day to stand out.

KEEP CHIT CHAT TO A MINIMUM

Keep your congratulatory chitchat to a minimum and don’t take offense if you don’t spend much time with the couple of the night. We understand you are excited to congratulate them but remember to keep in mind that they have many guests to greet and thank.

DON’T BE FOOLISH

Being on your best behaviour goes hand in hand with drinking responsibly for many. The bottom line though is to not do anything that would draw attention away from the couple. We are saying a major NO to any loud, attention seeking and obnoxious behaviour – which includes your impromptu speech that no one really wants to hear. Always be polite, well mannered and gracious, it’s the better option than never being invited to one of your friends weddings again.

BOA STYLE - WINTER WONDERLAND

What can be more romantic than a dusting of snow on your big day – just imagine all the dreamy shots your photographer can capture! A Winter Wonderland wedding in a palette of the prettiest soft neutrals, rather than bold reds and winter blues, looks so elegant with splashes of gold and silver metallic goodness. Combined with muted shades of green florals and you have the elegant winter wedding of your dreams…

A long sleeve lace wedding gown with a full ball-gown skirt is perfect to keep the winter chill away and keep within the romantic style of a winter wonderland celebration. Dreamy up-do’s adorned with magical headpieces are a must for the perfect finishing touch to any snow brides look and adds the perfect amount of sparkle.

Splashes of gold and silver add warmth and opulence to a winter celebration, even to the most simple and rustic of tables. Calligraphy on all stationery is a must to complete the overall beauty of the theming. Think outside the box lovelies, just because you live in the city doesn’t mean you cant transform it into a gorgeous winter wonderland!

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - MUSTARD

20 June 2016

It is the perfect colour for those autumn celebrations. This comforting and warming shade offers positive vibes and is rich, elegant and all the things that rustic fall weddings are made of! Mustard is the kind of colour that looks amazing when paired with neutrals, grey or black. Have a space that's lacking colour and character? Mustard is a colour that transforms spaces!

When it comes to florals, this hue has no shortage of pretty blooms to pair. Infuse your bouquets with some billy buttons for some added colour and a real POP! Highlight your colour choice through your wedding cake. If you are choosing to have this palette as an autumn wedding, then why not choose a richer cake flavour like chocolate or spice cake.
