Weddings are fun and exciting for not only the couple getting hitched but the wedding guests as well. If you are invited to a wedding, that means the happy couple wants to share one of the most important days of their lives with you. That’s a big deal! The best way to honor them and let them know you appreciate being there to witness this big day is to be respectful.
Wedding Guests: Be Respectful
You might not realize this, but one of the most common wedding guest faux pas is also the one most of us are guilty of getting in the way of the photographer or videographer. Now, there are situations when you can’t help getting in the way, but try to be intentional about staying out of the way.
You were invited to the wedding because you are a loved one of the newlyweds. They spent hundreds, even thousands of dollars on their photographers and videographers. They had to comb through countless professionals and do endless research to find the right fit — so don’t get in their way!
Now you might think, “but this new phone I have has a great camera,” or “but I take great photos.” None of that matters when there is already someone who’s been paid to record the event.
When you get in the way, not only are you blocking the shot, but you are insulting these wedding professionals. They are paid to be there because of their skills, experience, and ability to get the best shot. Let the professional videographer or photographer do their job.
So wedding guests, please respect the couple and their vendors, and sit down!
