The biggest day in life when you give each other the "yes" word is supposed to be quite romantic and as smooth as possible. That's what every bride and groom desires, even before it starts planning and organizing the wedding. Ideally, that would be possible, but … nobody is perfect, we all know that very well, right? Hand on heart, here we must admit that at every wedding celebration not everything goes according to plan. Certain changes to the plan are possible here, if they are carried out smoothly. Unfortunately, there are sometimes undesirable surprises and unpleasant situations that might be hard to predict on a seemingly well-executed wedding reception. There are even mistakes that one of the bridal partners (sometimes even both!) Commits and totally spoils the party mood. In order to dodge mood killers and blunders, we have summarized for you the most typical mistakes that you should best avoid as a bride and groom at your own wedding celebration. Here are these!
Mostly it does not work the way it was planned
Errors in the planning and organization of the wedding party
The planning and organization of a wedding celebration can take months if the bridal couple wants to think through every little detail correctly. Also things that are irrelevant to many people, such as the invitations to the party, the menu at the party, the wedding cake The music and seating arrangements often play a big role at the wedding reception.
It is quite unpleasant for the guests when the solemn wedding ceremony in the church or in the registry office is prolonged and the guests are a bit bored. Too long speeches are really tired on this day, because the common goal of all invitees is the good mood and pleasant conversation.
At the wedding party it should be amusing, long speeches are not welcome
Despite perfect planning and organization, there are sometimes unwanted guests at the party who would rather not be there. If there are Zoff between some relatives or friends, then you would rather not invite these people to the celebration, otherwise they spoil the solemn and happy mood by evil words meant. And that must happen under no circumstances on a wedding celebration! Therefore, we only want to guess, the guest list to check and the seating arrangement of the invitees to think again. To avoid unpleasant situations at your wedding party.

The wedding menu must also include vegetarian dishes and in no case be overloaded
The wedding menu must be enough, but not overloaded. It would be best if something specific is provided for every taste. For example, vegetarians among the wedding guests must not be neglected, that would be an unpleasant oversight by the organization. A certain timing in serving food and drinks is also recommended. Otherwise you would have dissatisfied guests who feel unhappy or neglected. The music at the party must not be too loud, so that the guests can talk undisturbed and if desired also dance. Even before they get drunk and monkeys while dancing!

Personal mistakes that could be made under the special circumstances of the wedding celebration
It is particularly embarrassing to blame others for misunderstandings, errors, and oversights. To make sure you never run into trouble, especially at your wedding, we want to warn you of such personal mistakes that could ruin everything at once. Try to avoid them so that you and your partner celebrate long years of anniversaries. These could be briefly formulated as follows:
- Better to drink little alcohol at your wedding party! Beware, drunken wedding guests look funny and embarrassing to the others, but if the bridal couple (or one of the partners!) Drinks too much alcohol at the party, that's a bad sign. Psychologists and wedding planners point out that this marriage could not last long. So, if you and your loved one have a long life, then it's best to drink a little wine (or beer instead of wine!) And combine it with soft drinks.
Drink less alcohol at your own wedding reception and keep a clear head
- One partner does not take into account the wishes of the other and is embarrassing! That could happen unfortunately! When discussing the wedding menu, one of the bridal partners can insist on vegetarian meals, but the other does not want to miss out on already planned meat specialties. Or another embarrassing and weird situation would be with a surprising selection of the wedding cake. This faux pout is even shown in the following, amusing video (source: countryliving.com)
Be very careful when dancing, so that nothing goes wrong!
- His ex comes without invitation to your wedding party! That would be the worst part of your wedding celebration when you see your groom's ex-girlfriend among the wedding guests. She could just sit there and slowly take her drink. We do not want to prophesy anything bad here, but be prepared for unwanted situations! Think about what you could expect from an abandoned, unhappy woman ?! It could just spoil the happy party mood. And nobody wants that!
Your groom's ex-girlfriend has no business at your wedding
Something unexpected can happen at every wedding reception
The wedding table must be properly covered and festively decorated
Pay a lot of attention to your bride so she will not get bored
Keep together in wind and weather as a couple
But do not embarrass yourself at your wedding party!
