When it comes to wedding guests, most of us are lucky to be surrounded by family and friends that love us. But when weddings are involved, we also know that there is bound to be drama. It’s not usually intentional but it happens. From people getting way too drunk, to someone wearing the wrong thing, to in-laws that go overboard, these five stories we’ve collected are absolutely horrifying. But that’s okay, because there IS something you can do when toxic wedding guests show up at YOUR special day.
According to OffBeatBride, there’s a few things you need to keep in mind when planning your wedding and assessing if you are in danger of inviting a toxic guest: One, you should trust your gut… and talk with your hubby. Each of you might have concerns about certain people, and you’ll want to compare notes. Then, discuss how far someone would need to go in order for you to ask that person to leave. If there are particular people you’re afraid of making a scene, engage in some of your wedding party to watch over them and intervene if necessary. Last but not least, don’t be afraid to uninvite someone if they show bad behavior even BEFORE the wedding and don’t seem to be changing their ways. You’ll learn why after you read these five real-life stories of brides dealing with toxic guests.
