Synopsis

A wedding has always been considered a formal event. There have always been rules for the proper way to do this and to do that from planning the wedding list, wording the invitations to setting the wedding table and buffet. There have always been rules for people to behave this way or that way during the rehearsal dinner, the reception and, yes, even the wedding shower. There have always been rules even for the bride and groom (and their parents) as to who pays for this or who pays for that and who plans for this and who plans for that.

Wedding etiquette are actually rules for acceptable behavior. It is believed that these rules were formed so as not to offend polite society, you know, those well-mannered people with rank, position or authority in society. But, really, these rules only aim at helping you plan a wedding that you and everyone else can enjoy. These rules help you take into consideration the feelings and opinions of other people who will be present to celebrate the wedding day with you.

Modern society has become lax with most wedding etiquettes. Brides can now plan their weddings as much to their own liking and taste. However, there are still conventions that are considered old-school. It is wise to consider these traditional, old-fashioned ideas especially to please the elders in both sides of the family. Don’t get too caught up with these rules, though.

Remember the best rule of all: just have a good time! Make your wedding a really fun, relaxing and memorable time for everyone. Eat, drink, play music together, it’s a celebration of life, after all!
