Common Wedding Questions and Answers Every Couple Should Know

Do you have a ton of wedding planning questions? Here is some common wedding Q&A that every couple should know.

We might not be able to answer every question you have about weddings and wedding planning in one blog post, but we can offer a little insight to some of the most common wedding questions and answers. Every couple can benefit from familiarizing themselves with this common Q&A. You never know what kind of roadblocks will sneak up on you at the last minute as your wedding day approaches, so it helps to be prepared.

Should you let single guests bring dates?—This is something many couples run into when it’s time to send out invitations and determine how many guests will actually attend. There are many factors to consider that can make the decision difficult, most of them revolving around expense and preparing enough food and place settings for everyone. The best way to handle this is on a case-by-case basis. Then seat the singles together who you did not offer to bring a date so they do not feel uncomfortable during the reception.

How do I break the news to a friend that I didn’t choose her as a bridesmaid?—This is a very tough situation, but a common one. You bridesmaids should be people you are closest to or have been closest to during the current stage of your life. Chances are you won’t be able to avoid hurt feelings, but if you aren’t very close to a particular friend, they will likely understand why it’s important to you to choose friends who have been very prominent in your life lately. In this case, honesty is the best policy. Don’t skirt around it or lie or you’ll likely hurt their feelings even more. Every bride-to-be should know the answer to this common wedding question!

Is it okay to have a cash bar at the reception?—Many couples want to try and save money when planning their reception, and one of the first places they try and cut costs is the alcohol. Unfortunately, no matter how large or small your wedding is, it’s not very good wedding etiquette to offer a cash bar. You invited your guests to a party, so they shouldn’t have to pay for their own drinks—especially at a wedding event. However, there is nothing wrong with offering a limited bar service to save on cost by serving only beer, wine, a particular champagne, and soda. The selection will be limited and so will the expense. Before you secure your reception details in a contract, be sure you know common wedding questions and answers such as this one.
