Consider yourself lucky if you got invited to any of the Hamptons wedding venues for your loved one’s big day. These locations are some of the best choices for tying the knot: They are picturesque, are often just a stone’s throw away from the beach, and offer a truly intimate vibe as only luxe neighborhoods can.
You must have been really close to the couple to be asked to be present on their most special day. Be the best wedding guest in history with these tips:
Send the RSVP on time. RSVPs are an important guide for the bride and groom in their preparations. They need to be able to do a headcount for the size of the venue to be booked, the quantity of food to be prepared, the number of souvenirs to shop for, among other details. Do reply within the schedule indicated on your RSVP card.
Problem-solve on your own. The bride and groom are surely stressed enough with their own worries. The least you can do is to try to search things on your own and not bother them with your questions that can easily be answered with a Google query, such as what a garden formal attire on the dress code means, or what the landmarks beside their reception venue are. If you’re unsure about something, try getting in touch with other attendees instead, or with their wedding coordinator.
Don’t tag people along. The couple most likely operated within a set budget, which will then dictate the number of people they can accommodate. If there is no slot for a plus-one on your invitation, do not tag someone along, even if it’s just your little child who you claim will not eat much. Sometimes it’s also an adults-only affair, so do double-check before deciding on bringing someone who’s not invited.
Be fully present. Aside from being there physically to witness their union, be mentally present as well. Do not just play with your phone and log on your Facebook, or chat with your companion. Appreciate the food, the music, the decor – everything that the couple most likely worked hard to present to their guests. Most of all, be truly one with the couple in celebrating their lifetime vow of love.
Enjoy being at one of the most romantic Hamptons wedding venues! While you’re in this vibrant district, don’t forget to also visit Long Island’s spectacular gardens, beaches, and vineyards.
