Wedding Etiquette Tips 27


Before rushing to the wedding reception
The crowd at the porch should be building up by now, old friends whom have not seen each other for a long time will take this opportunity to catch up lost time; relatives gathering together updating each other with their recent happenings. Usually the guests tends to get carried away, the best man has to appoint some groomsmen to ask the guests politely to proceed to the wedding reception, so that the reception will be on time; if a wedding banquet is to be held in the evening, it will be fine for the guests to hang around but not for too long as the church may be conducting another wedding ceremony.

As the wedding couple get into the car and be on their way to the wedding reception, rice or confetti will be showering over them, it will be polite to notify the clergy in advance as he may not allow such practice because it may mess up the place. The best man may delegate a few groomsmen to help out in cleaning up the confetti mess as a kind gesture as it may also reflect well on the wedding couple.

After the wedding ceremony is over, the best man will stay behind to take care of the expenses that needed to be settled, paying for the wedding deco, the church, or some unexpected expenses; the Bridegroom will have to hand over the finances to the best man in advance. The bridegroom may choose to settle this himself before he make his way to the wedding reception with the bride, but it is advisable to allow the best man to do it on his behalf, as it is important for the Bridegroom to be relieve of such matters in order to enjoy the day with the bride. After paying the contractors and the church, the best man should have a car standing by for him to rush him to the wedding reception on time because the duty of the best man is not finished yet!
