The right schedule

The right order of events at a wedding ceremony is there for a good reason – so that things go in the rights order and according to a plan.

The seating chart

Don’t mix frenemies, ex-lovers and other people who dislike each other at the same table. Avoid such a catastrophe by pairing people who know and like each other at the same table. Also, don’t mix complete strangers together at the same wedding table hoping they will get to know each other during the evening. It might or might not happen so play it safe. Mixing people who know each other with a few strangers who are acquainted is the way to go. 

Limit the number of toasts

These things can go on and on and will surely cause a few yawns across the venue.

Avoid any boredom among guests by limiting the number of toast to those people that are expected to say a few words. It is also advisable to limit the length of each toast. Make sure you give the memo to toast givers.

Make it a kid-friendly wedding

When we discuss the topic of wedding boredom, we have to address those who get bored easily. You’ll probably have some children among your guests. Kids are also known as those who can light up the fun with their funny dancing and laughing out loud.

Since you cannot please everyone, try your best to make this ceremony as enjoyable to your guests as you can. But, remember that this is your day too so make this ceremony your own. Let it represent yours and your partner’s spirit in the best possible light.
