The fact of the matter is that it’s far from just brides and grooms who cause drama and create situations that everyone will be gossiping about for years and years to come. There are some truly peculiar people out there who end up being invited to celebrations of love, only to try and ruin them. Some folks simply take pleasure in causing chaos wherever they go. Weddings are no exception.
Anna and Sarah, team leaders at The Wedding Society spoke to Bored Panda about unruly and rude guests, and how to manage them. In short, it’s important to let go of the idea that weddings can be ‘perfect’: some things will go wrong no matter what. So it’s vital to be able to adapt and not take any minor flaws in the plan personally.
“Some people just want to watch the world burn, and as hosts to an event, it’s just something that wedding couples will have to accept,” Anna and Sarah explained to us that the happy couple has to be realistic about the fact that not everyone will be well-behaved and polite on this happy occasion. No matter how much we might want them to.
“Not everyone is going to fall in line, especially your anarchist uncle Jerry with the overgrown beard. That said, try to fall back on your vendor support system as leverage,” the experts pointed out that the marrying couple shouldn’t have to do everything themselves. They can’t worry about every tiny detail or mishap. They should turn to the venue’s staff to help them handle all the issues.
“Simply saying, ‘The venue has rules’ or, ‘Our caterers have agreed to only..’” is an easy way to take the blame off yourself but still enforce hard rules,” the wedding expert shared how couples can shut down some bad behavior among guests. It’s a way to misdirect some of the havoc-wreakers’ negative emotions elsewhere.
According to the experts, they stressed that they would be “utilizing the professionals” around them for help if they were ever in a situation where disaster’s looming either during the ceremony or the reception afterward.
“By now you will have developed a relationship with them [the professionals] and they’ll often be more than happy to put the foot down on your behalf—especially venue staff,” they pointed out that the people the wedding couples have hired are there to help in any way that they can.
“Have a quiet word with your coordinator or someone else more emotionally removed from the individuals involved and ask them to help you manage,” they shared what you can do if some of your guests start behaving in a way that’s over the line. It’s one thing to cause a bit of chaos accidentally, it’s something else entirely when you’re trying to derail everything because you want all the attention.
I don’t even know where to start…but y’all should probably get off those train tracks before an actual train wreck happens, instead of the metaphorical one happening with those outfits
You cannot convince me that a trampoline in someone’s backyard holds that much sentimental value to any couple getting married
