Why are some guests not at my wedding?

Hosting over a holiday may break traditions they'd rather not miss, and if you're hosting a sporting event, you may find that visitors are missing because they're slipping out to check the score or watch it on a nearby TV. If you know any sports fans who might not appreciate this joke, let them know immediately so they can be sure to include your wedding in their vacation plans.

Plan for all possibilities when planning your wedding day. If you're planning a summer wedding, think about how you'll handle cold weather guests. Will you have a hotel room for them? What if it's snowing outside? You'll need to decide what will happen if some people don't show up. It's best to be prepared with an alternative plan should anything go wrong.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life so it's natural to want to make sure everyone has a good time. However, since your wedding day is such a big deal, it's normal to worry about certain things going wrong. Try not to stress too much about everything being perfect because no matter what happens, you'll still have each other's support behind you.

What to do with uninvited guests at a wedding?

Uninvited wedding guests should be placed wherever there is room (even an extra table in the back if required), and they are unlikely to protest. However, some families may not like their children being exposed to other family members' issues - so check with them first.

If you have invited all of your relatives to attend your wedding but one or more turn up anyway, what should you do? Uninvited guests usually aren't welcome at a wedding, which is why they come dressed in disguise in order to avoid being turned away at the door. Even if they know everyone who will be at your wedding, that doesn't mean they're allowed to come - every guest has the right to decide for themselves whether to accept your invitation.

However, most weddings have a list of expected guests who need to give consent for others to join them. If someone turns up without having done so, it's possible they might not get invited again.

In most cases, you won't actually see this list; it's assumed that if you invite X person then Y people will come. But if you only invite enough people to fill your space then you could end up with some empty seats at your wedding.

Is it rude not to attend a wedding?

While many people have valid reasons for refusing a wedding invitation, such as pre-planned vacations, others just do not want to go. If you fall into the latter type, it may appear disrespectful if either the bride or groom guesses that you just do not want to go. Therefore, it is best to let them know upfront.

It is also important to remember that every wedding has its own unique story that cannot be replicated again and again even with multiple marriages. Thus, some couples prefer something unique instead of a traditional ceremony with an officiant. These types of weddings can be very personal and meaningful to their guests. However, they are not for everyone. If you have doubts about whether a unique wedding is right for you guys, it's best to discuss these concerns before hand so there are no unpleasant surprises later on.

Finally, some couples choose to get married at home with only family members present. While this type of wedding allows for more privacy, it can be difficult to plan when everyone will be able to make it out to town for the festivities. Thus, it is best to discuss these issues early on so there are no misunderstandings later on.

Overall, it is best to be honest and open with each other from the beginning so there are no unpleasant surprises later on.

Is it OK to not invite partners to a wedding?

Here's a summary of when it's OK and when it's not to invite a visitor without his or her significant other. "As a general rule, if someone has been married, engaged, living with, or seeing someone exclusively for more than a few months, they should be invited with their S.O." says Lisa Damour, author of Inviting Guests Without Your Partner.

However, if you have known the person for only a short time (such as through work or a social networking site), they shouldn't be excluded from your special day. Just be sure to include them in some way during the ceremony and reception (for example, read a poem written just for them).

Does it matter who invites guests? Not really. As long as everyone is invited and allowed to come, then that's all that matters.

Can I send out invitations later? Once you've made your decisions about the type of wedding you want and who will be involved in its planning, send out invitations that reflect this information. If you change your mind about anything, you can always make changes before printing up hundreds of pieces of paper.
