Wednesday Wedding Tips: Introductions, Please.

November 30, 2011

Today’s Wednesday Wedding Tip is really more common sense and good manners… introduce people. Yes, brides and grooms, I am talking to you… please, introduce your bridal party to one another.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that I work in higher ed, so I am constantly working with new groups of students that need to be introduced to one another and made to feel comfortable. Now, I am not expecting every wedding party to start busting out ice breakers, but it would be nice if there could be a quick go around the room and say who you are and how you know the lovely couple. Yes, I am perfectly capable of going up and introducing myself to people, I have done it a million times. All I am saying is that it would be nice if the people who you are all there for would make it a little easier.  So take a few minutes before you start the wedding rehearsal and have people introduce themselves. Actually, this is even better if it can be done before the rehearsal…. Engagement party, couples shower, wedding prep parties, any sort of party or event… heck, even a day when a bunch of people are helping with moving furniture. Anything is better than having to trying and remember which groomsman is which based on the random tales you have heard from the couple; or having to randomly find another bridesmaid on Facebook: “ excuse, I know we haven’t met yet, but we are both in so and so’s wedding… did you find a handbag as requested by the bride, I am so lost on where to get one… help?”

So, everyone planning these future events, set aside a few minutes to introduce all the players for the big day. But that is just my two cents.
