Ideally, everyone invited to your wedding will get along perfectly – and even if they don’t know each other, they will befriend each other during the event and actually like it.
In reality, however, bringing 200 people together and expecting them all to be best friends for life is highly unrealistic.
In fact, it is quite possible that you will have to handle at least one “incompatibility” situation.
How can you do this while still making sure your wedding stays a happy, peaceful, and positive event?
We have some tips for you – continue reading and find out more.
· Start with a good seating arrangement. The easiest way to make sure friends who don’t get along or even divorcees will not “clash” at your wedding is to seat them as far away from each other as possible. This is one of the main reasons a properly planned seating arrangement is so important – it will help you diffuse conflicts before they even start.
· Try not to invite people who are likely to start a fight. If you don’t absolutely have to invite these people, then don’t. This is your wedding and you have the right to actually enjoy it, instead of chasing people around in fear that they might pick a fight with someone.
· Ask your Maid of Honor and Best Man to help. You will be busy on your wedding day, trying to bring everything together, being there for all the photos, and also socializing with everyone. You might not be able to keep an eye on every single guest and what they are doing – especially after a couple of drinks. Ask your Maid of Honor and Best Man to help you spot potential conflicts and to diffuse them for you if you are not around.
· Simply ask them to take a break to cool down or leave. Has the conflict already started? Yes, it might seem like a nightmare scenario – but it happens. The most important thing right now is for you to handle everything efficiently and as low-key as possible (because you don’t want other guests’ party mood to be ruined, right?). Simply go up to the person who caused the disturbance and ask them to either go for a walk to take a break and cool down, or ask them to leave the wedding. Be polite, but firm – this is your Big Day and they have absolutely no right to ruin it in any way.
