3 Situations It's Okay To Say No To Your Wedding Guests

Mar 8, 2018

The art of saying “NO” when planning a wedding can be really difficult because you want all your loved ones and friends to be there to witness you tie the knot.  But when you are on a tight budget, you need to learn how to say the two-letter word.  Here are the three situations that you can say no.

1.    No plus ones

Being a Filipino means having every family member in your wedding, even if he’s a third cousin or she’s your aunt’s in-law making it hard for us to strictly say no plus ones.  But you can specifically invite at least two members of that family if you are on a budget.  Write only their names, no need to include “and family”.

2.    No children

Some couples choose adult-only weddings because there will be for-adult-only words in the reception especially when it’s already the garter toss and their guests can enjoy the party because they don’t have to look after their kids.  You can exclude the flower girls and the ring bearer because they are actually part of the entourage.

3.    No camera in the ceremony

Having an unplugged wedding sounds selfish for some guests so we have come up with a solution. You can ask them to put their phones in their pocket during the ceremony or have a small booth for guests to leave their phones during the ceremony and take pictures in the reception. This way, the wedding ceremony will be solemn and no one will get in the way of the photographer.
