Weddings Features

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

A particular group of guests who are always there and seldom specifically catered for are the children. For some reason they are all too often overlooked - unless they are among the bride’s attendants and yet, even the youngest can make or mar the occasion. It is well worth therefore, considering how they should be cared for, looked after and catered for, in order that their parents may enjoy the event, and the rest of the guests not suffer.

Men at the wedding

Groom with groomsmen

Weddings tend to centre on the arrangements and activities of the bride, her mother and the bridesmaids who are all very important players in the ‘production’. There are however men at the celebration too. Indeed without the groom there can be no wedding, but the bride’s father, best man and ushers should not be overlooked because they too have important parts to play.

Wedding Guest Lists
