Every couple wants their wedding to be an event to remember for their guests. But there are some mistakes that brides and grooms make that can really annoy their family and friends on the big day, and even put a damper on the festivities! Be sure your wedding is remembered for all the right reasons by avoiding THESE five missteps.

Clinking glasses

Cash Bar

Nothing annoys wedding guests more than a cash bar. You don't need to break the bank to have an open bar. Offer up beer and wine only and throw in a signature cocktail if you don't have the wiggle room in your wedding budget. 


Last-Minute Notice

You need to give your guests plenty of notice when it comes to saving your date--especially if you're planning a destination wedding or anticipate inviting many out-of-town guests.

Outdoor venue

Keeping Them Out Of The Loop

Guests need to know how to dress for your wedding, so you need to inform them of all of the important details. This is especially important if the day will be spent outside. In the summer, this means applying sunscreen and even bug spray before leaving for the venue, while the fall and winter might entail wearing a long-sleeve dress or bringing a coat. Remember, your guests' comfort is key, and wearing the right attire for the festivities is a big part of that!


Super Loud Music

Yes, guests want to dance at your wedding, but they'll also want to talk to one another. This is especially true for older guests who might spend more time at their tables than on the dance floor. Talk to your band and DJ about finding a comfortable volume, as well as the music selection so there is something for everyone to enjoy throughout the night.


Inadequate Bathroom Facilities

If you're having an outdoor wedding, you must have adequate bathroom facilities for your guests. And that means you'll have to splurge on the high-end portable bathrooms-- because let's face it, port-a-potties simply won't do for this type of event.
