I was at a wedding this weekend and it was beautiful. The bride was of course beautiful. But a little etiquette was lacking.
1) When the bride walks in with her father (or other escort) wait to see what the mother of the bride does. Don’t stand until she stands. Do what she does. I learned this the hard way at a formal wedding in South Carolina. I had no idea this was the rule until my mother-in-law pointed it out. The brides mom stayed seated and so we all quickly sat down. She wanted to be able to see her daughter walk down the aisle.
2) My own personal pet peeve: wearing jeans to weddings! I’ve been to several wedding in the last few years where guest’s came in jeans to classy weddings. Okay, so I’m in Florida and people are a little more laid back, but still, IT’S A WEDDING!!! I was raised believing it’s better to be dressed up than dressed down. In fact, my sister’s wedding website had on there that no one with jeans would be accepted into the wedding.
Can you all think of anything else? Or do you have any wedding pet peeves?
