One of the hardest things to understand for some people is wedding etiquette. It can be very complicated and many people do not understand the reason for it. If you have found that your fiancé is hesitant to learn more about wedding etiquette, we have developed some tips to help you get them on the right track.

Watch what you Say

The first thing that you should do is to avoid using the word etiquette. Instead, try using words like good manners and considerate. It may simply be that your fiancé is avoiding certain things because they feel like a tradition. However, good etiquette is necessary when planning a wedding both because it will help keep everyone’s feelings healthy but will also help keep your planning process organized and efficient.

Guests

You can also remind your fiancé to think about your guests. It is a good idea to think of the wedding as something that will reflect on the two of you as a couple. For this reason, it is a good idea to remind him about the other guests that will be in attendance for the wedding. While this may not be an important factor for your fiancé, your fiancé may be concerned about what you think as well as their parents and other family members that are important to them.

Choose your Battles Wisely

This is something that is a good idea to learn before you become married. Try to let the small stuff go and only focus on the bigger issues. While it may be difficult to let some things go, you should only argue about things that are truly important and will make a difference to the wedding planning process.

With this in mind, you should also make sure that you consider the consequences of not following wedding etiquette as well. Consider how you would feel being a guest at a wedding where etiquette was not followed. Pointing this out to your fiancé can make a huge difference in their attitude and may make it easier to convince them of the importance of wedding etiquette.

Conclusion

Your wedding can be a very stressful thing to plan and having a fiancé that is not concerned with the importance of wedding etiquette can make it even more stressful. However, if you follow these tips, you will be able to teach your fiancé why these things are important and how they can improve their actions to make the planning process easier for you.

By helping your fiancé learn more about wedding etiquette, it is likely that they will become more comfortable with the situation so that they are able to fully enjoy the wedding process as well.

    I guess if you are not sure how to get through the formal part of the day, just keep your mouth shut and smile a lot 🙂 That makes for better photos.

    If your fiance has no clue how to act at a wedding, you might be too young to be getting married. It might seem complicated to keep up with the etiquette, but after reading your tips, I do not agree.
