Wedding Etiquette Tips 23


Last minute touches before the wedding starts
Prior to the start of the wedding ceremony, the Best Man should do a last flight check on the Groom. Check if the wedding rings are in his pocket, the corsage is at the right place, the tie is balanced, enough cash is in his pocket to pay for any expenses to be expected and check if he is wearing socks!

Half an hour before the wedding ceremony starts, the Groom should be in the Church with the Best Man. At this time the guests are arriving and start showing up at the front entrance of the church. A group of guests should be gathering, talking, as they have not seen each other for a long time, groomsmen assigned at the reception should politely ask them to be seated fast, so that the congestion at the front entrance will not build up.

Ten minutes before the wedding ceremony, the Chief Bridesmaid, Bridesmaid and Pages should be gathering at the entrance of the door, forming up, and be ready for the wedding march.

Last minute touches should be checked by the Chief Bridesmaid on all the Bridesmaids and the Pages. The Best Man will lead the Bridegroom to the front before the altar, he may choose to stand or seat at the front-right pew.

It will not be possible for the bride to arrive at the church exactly at the appointed time. I would always advice the bride to leave home early if the area is expected to have a heavy flow of traffic, even if a traffic jam is not expected, it is still wise for the bride to leave home early to avoid unexpected hold-ups. When the bride arrives early, the car may have to cruise around the neighborhood for a while till the exact. At this time, all guests are to be seated and the bride and her father arrive last.
