Wedding Etiquette is a phrase which is losing its luster over the years and as I joke from time to time with my clients, I say
“If you do that, Emily Post will roll around in her grave”.

it’s your wedding and you can do what you want! Right?
If you plan to make people unhappy and quite a few more wondering where your manners are, then that is the way to go.

Even if you do not care much about what they do and think, it is still essential for you to find a way to make them feel welcome into your life; and using the proper wedding etiquette will help you do just this.
