Not All of Your Wedding Guests Are Best Friends with Each Other. Here’s How to Handle It

How to handle guests who aren’t friends

You want your wedding to be one of the happiest and most beautiful events of your life.

You want to feel excellent walking down the aisle and dancing the night away with your friends.

You want your wedding guests to have genuine fun too.

Unfortunately, though, when you invite 200 people to spend hours on an end together, it’s highly unlikely that they will all be compatible with each other in terms of personality. Even more, it is quite likely that some of them might have a history that prevents them from getting along 100% well.

How to handle this kind of situations? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

· Create a brilliant seating chart. You and your SO are supposed to know your wedding guests. Discuss with each other and avoid seating together anyone who might not get along. Also, be sure to not seat together people who have a history together (e.g. people who used to be a couple but have broken up). A good seating chart takes a bit of time to plan – but with a bit of attention to detail you can actually pull this off.

· Ask your friends to help you. Your Maid of Honor and/or Best Man can help you diffuse nasty situations as soon as they arise. Ask them to keep an eye on the guests and help them feel great – but also ask them to keep an eye on potentially dangerous situations that could turn into a quarrel or a fight. If you know certain guests are more likely to get to that point, ask your Maid of Honor and/or Best Man to pay more attention to those specific guests.

· Ask guests to leave if they become irritated or are likely to start a fight. At the end of the day, this is your wedding – and you, more than anyone, have the right to make sure your guests don’t ruin this special event in your life. Politely ask people to leave if they show signs of becoming quarrelsome.
