Hey guys! I’m Abigail a new member of the Paper Hearts Family. I am a Texas girl living in Seattle. I love weddings with my whole heart! I am so excited to be starting this new feature. I have been a wedding guest many times. Have you ever noticed there always seems to be that “one guest?” The one who just doesn’t seem to understand proper etiquette. (I hate to admit it, but that “one guest” has been me once or twice.) I thought it would be fun, to share weekly do’s and don’ts in hopes to help protect us from improper “weddiquette!”
Join me as we learn more about wedding etiquette. Practical advice for any guest or bride planning her special day! – Cheers, Abigail
Tip #1: Avoid Wearing White …or ivory, or cream, or off-white, or eggshell, or champagne, or anything in that color family. I know this tip can seem a bit old-fashioned, particularly with the number of brides who opt out of wearing white now, but it is way better to play it safe than to risk offending or upsetting someone. Even if the bride chooses not to wear white on her wedding day, culture still associates weddings with white dresses, and the last thing you want to do at a wedding is draw attention to yourself. PSA: Someone else’s wedding day is not about you! All of the focus should be on the happy couple–not on what one guest is wearing.
