When you are asked to say a few words to the wedding couple, give them your best wishes and be sincere. Don’t say funny but not appropriate jokes, for example about divorce lawyers. These videos will be viewed by many people for many years and what seems funny now won’t be in the future.
Some cultures have so called money tree or money dance, so bring some small bills just in case.
Be sure to say thank you before you leave, do not forget about the parents of newly wedded.
Some things which you should avoid during the wedding.
Your friends will be happy if you call them. Give some time after they return from their honeymoon journey and then call to tell them how much you enjoyed witnessing their special day.
It is always useful to make some more calls. Writing a note to the bride’s parents is always in good taste, and is that very point of etiquette which is often forgotten. If during the wedding you happen to meet the manager of a company you’d love to work for, call him or drop him a note the week after the wedding and tell him how much you enjoyed meeting him. You may also call that bridesmaid or single woman you met, and ask her out.
The general advice as with anything, a little foresight, a few questions and a lot of common sense will get you through a wedding. This day is very special for your friend and his bride so try to do your best to make it memorable in all the possible good ways. Be provident, attentive, helpful and respectful and you’ll be remembered for a long time as the “best guest.
