12 Things Your Guests DGAFF About

00:00
well hello lovely humans today we are
00:02
gonna talk about 12 things that your
00:03
guests don’t give up one fart in space
00:05
about the whole reason that you’re
00:07
getting married is because you want to
00:08
spend the rest of your life together and
00:10
the whole reason that you’re having a
00:11
wedding is because you want to celebrate
00:12
that story and you also want to share
00:14
that story with all of your close family
00:15
and friends that means for most people
00:18
throwing the best party you’ve ever
00:20
thrown in your entire life however there
00:22
are certain areas that a lot of people
00:24
tend to go overboard in I’m one of them
00:27
I definitely went overboard in at least
00:31
three of these areas if not more I’m not
00:34
saying that you can’t not do these
00:37
things but I am saying that your guests
00:40
don’t care at all about any of the items
00:44
I’m about to list off sorry number one
00:48
your invitations I mean you have this
00:53
great moment where they open the
00:54
envelope and they see it and it’s
00:56
beautiful and some people they throw it
00:58
up on their fridge for a little bit but
01:00
most people the invitation goes straight
01:03
to the trash I’ve been there where I’ve
01:06
seen an invitation for a wedding and
01:09
thought oh my gosh this is so pretty oh
01:11
they did such a great job okay iris you
01:14
pee their trash and think what I do for
01:18
a living like you’d think that I’d hang
01:19
on to this a little bit longer I don’t I
01:23
don’t they go in the trash just like
01:26
everybody else’s do number two programs
01:30
like why why I mean you don’t need to
01:34
give people an outline of events and you
01:35
don’t need to have it printed and set
01:37
out at every single seat it takes a lot
01:39
of time it takes a lot of money you have
01:41
to design them and print them someone
01:43
else to set them out it’s a lot of steps
01:45
for something that someone may clutch on
01:46
to for five minutes so they have to
01:48
avoid conversation with the person
01:50
sitting next to them but it’s really not
01:52
going to provide them with a whole lot
01:53
of real information they’re gonna
01:54
remember for the rest of the day and
01:56
again that piece of paper goes straight
01:59
into the trash so is it really worth it
02:03
coming up number three
02:06
escort cards nobody cares
02:09
they don’t that no one cares about
02:12
escort cards specifically and while it
02:15
is really cool and really unique and
02:17
really intentional to have a
02:19
calligrapher hand do each and every
02:21
escort card and have these cute little
02:23
placeholders and everyone seats
02:25
no one will walk home well no one will
02:29
walk home from your event but no one
02:31
will leave your event going those were
02:32
the most beautiful place cards I’ve ever
02:36
seen I never seen such beautiful place
02:39
cards that’s likely not gonna happen
02:41
unless they’re engraved with gold or
02:44
there’s you know painted on the
02:47
butterfly’s wings you’re gonna have to
02:49
go really really far I do wait for
02:51
escort cards sleeve any sort of a
02:52
lasting impact instead what you can do
02:54
is make a really really large seating
02:57
chart that guests can refer to
03:00
throughout the evening to try to figure
03:01
out where they’re going same can be said
03:03
of the program if you want to do those
03:05
two things in fact it I mean I recommend
03:06
that you do a seating chart
03:07
but escort cards are definitely
03:09
definitely not a thing that you need to
03:10
be worrying about just do a big seating
03:12
chart and it’ll be a lot easier
03:13
number four guestbook I know I know
03:16
don’t get mad but it’s true and you
03:19
could probably ask a lot of your friends
03:22
that have gotten married recently I was
03:23
gonna help fold their guest book is lose
03:26
it’s like mine or most the weddings that
03:28
I happen to work it’s gonna be over
03:31
halfway full this is a super-duper
03:34
traditional thing that we have done for
03:36
I don’t know how long but a lot of times
03:39
unless you put the guest book in front
03:41
of someone’s face they’re not going to
03:43
sign it and you’re gonna leave with a
03:46
half-filled books that you may or may
03:48
not want to put on your coffee table and
03:49
you may or may not look at some time in
03:51
the future sure if it has photos in it
03:53
um it’s from a photo booth or something
03:56
printed with your engagement photos from
03:57
beforehand that’ll be something you’ll
03:59
look back on a little bit more than just
04:01
a book with a bunch of signatures we can
04:03
think about it how often do you look at
04:05
your old yearbooks never this thing in
04:09
sixth grade was bad I don’t I don’t go
04:12
back on that no no no so guest book I
04:16
mean maybe but nobody signs it and then
04:21
no one looks at it so
04:23
um maybe don’t do it number five
04:27
linens nobody cares about Linens it’s
04:32
not gonna make a lasting impact on what
04:34
their view of your wedding day is unless
04:38
they are sequined tablecloths on
04:39
absolutely every table that maybe half
04:42
the guests will notice it’s really not
04:44
worth it just stick with the traditional
04:45
white go floor-length don’t go shorter
04:48
than four lengths because it just flips
04:50
tacky to see table legs but go with the
04:53
traditional white or ivory or maybe do a
04:55
soft color but stick with the base price
04:58
ones because it’s really really not
05:00
worth it it makes no lasting effect on
05:02
your wedding day and guests aren’t gonna
05:04
walk away again like they would with
05:06
butterfly painted escort cards they’re
05:09
not gonna walk away with some sort of
05:10
lasting thought about what your linens
05:12
look like save the money save the time
05:14
it’s not worth it number six first dance
05:16
okay let me qualify this for just a sec
05:21
it’s not that your guests don’t care
05:23
about the first dance because watching
05:24
you two dance for the very first time is
05:26
something really precious and I actually
05:29
probably cry at almost every single
05:32
first dance that I witness I’m a goob
05:34
about first dances I love them what
05:37
guests don’t care about however is if
05:40
it’s choreographed or if it’s the full
05:42
song so don’t stress about it
05:44
don’t spend months practicing with some
05:48
Latin ballroom dance teacher in shoes
05:51
that make you want to shoot yourself
05:52
just get out there and sway back and
05:55
forth for half the song and smile and
05:58
let people celebrate in that with you it
06:00
doesn’t need to be perfect it doesn’t
06:01
need to be practiced just be you number
06:05
seven slideshows honestly after sitting
06:08
through three to five toasts the last
06:10
thing that a guest wants to do is sit
06:12
through a five to ten minute slideshow
06:14
it’s just not interesting for them or
06:16
it’s just more important to you than it
06:19
is to them and there may be special
06:20
moments throughout the slideshow that
06:22
captured their attention but if they’ve
06:24
already been sitting through 20 plus
06:25
minute of speeches and you want to tack
06:26
on another ten minutes that’s a lot to
06:29
expect of a guest who’s just anxious for
06:31
the party to get going so keep that in
06:33
mind when you start to put all those
06:34
photos together maybe
06:35
to a section where you have a bunch of
06:37
childhood photos that people can go
06:39
peruse if they choose to or if you
06:41
really want to do a slideshow set up a
06:42
slideshow area that guests can go visit
06:44
if they’re interested but don’t make
06:47
everybody sit through a 10 minute long
06:49
slideshow that has pictures from both of
06:51
you from infancy to awkward adolescence
06:54
to when you met each other and dating
06:55
it’s beautiful it’s great it celebrates
06:58
your love story but your guests are
07:00
bored get them on the dance floor number
07:03
eight open seating don’t do open seating
07:07
it’s awful because then they have to
07:09
figure out who they’re sitting next to
07:11
and let’s say they get a group of five
07:12
at a table of eight and then awesome
07:14
there’s three chairs left over who’s
07:15
gonna sit there is there a special group
07:17
of three that’s just gonna happen to be
07:19
able to converse with this group of five
07:20
and they’re gonna create a perfect even
07:23
group of eight probably not gonna happen
07:26
we worked in event once where there was
07:28
open seating and I won’t do it again
07:29
I will not do it again because there was
07:32
this poor family of six it was a mom a
07:34
dad and six kids and some of them were
07:37
so young that they shouldn’t be left at
07:39
another table but they were too old to
07:41
be sitting on their parents laps so we
07:43
needed a specific table just for them we
07:45
talked to the venue we talked to the
07:47
bride they’re gonna charge an additional
07:48
fee we put one together it doesn’t have
07:50
a centerpiece and the linen didn’t match
07:52
but we put a table together turn to go
07:54
get them
07:55
turn back around and someone else had
07:56
already filled up the table with five
07:58
people great awesome okay so then we had
08:02
to put together a second table again
08:04
with the wrong linen no centerpiece
08:06
additional charge to the bride and groom
08:08
and I had to have an assistant camp out
08:10
at that table to make sure that that
08:12
family got there and no one else
08:14
jacked their seats open seating is like
08:17
anxiety in a bucket if that’s such a
08:21
thing I don’t know you know what I’m
08:22
saying it causes people to freak out and
08:25
get all sweaty about who they’re gonna
08:27
sit next to guests don’t like open
08:29
seating they don’t care about it give
08:31
them a seat maybe not a specific one but
08:33
give them a table it’s gonna make
08:35
everything go so much more smoothly
08:37
number nine
08:38
cake guests don’t care about a seven
08:42
tiered cake they just don’t in fact
08:45
guests would prefer to have a dessert
08:47
table with a bunch of dessert
08:48
instead of a seven tier cake that has
08:51
fondant on the outside of it that tastes
08:52
like the bottom of someone’s shoe and no
08:56
offense to anyone who actually enjoys
08:57
the taste of fondant but I haven’t met
08:59
anybody who does it is like a weird
09:02
combination of rubber and gum and it has
09:05
like a sugar eNOS to it but nobody
09:07
actually enjoys that instead opt for
09:10
something like a dessert table that has
09:12
three to five desserts something
09:13
chocolatey something sweet something
09:15
with berries in it of lemon bar I don’t
09:18
know go for more of a dessert table that
09:20
guests will actually be excited about
09:21
and invested in because then you’re more
09:24
likely to please all these different
09:25
tastes instead of this giant monstrosity
09:27
of a gorgeous gorgeous wedding cake that
09:30
most people won’t eat I’m not a person
09:33
and you probably won’t see me eatin cake
09:35
at your wedding day one cuz I’m working
09:37
and that would be tacky and too cuz I
09:39
don’t like cake so instead go for
09:41
something more of a dessert table and
09:42
that will be sure to tickle a lot more
09:44
fancies number ten bouquet toss you
09:47
don’t have to do one especially if
09:49
you’re feeling awkward or uncomfortable
09:50
or on the fence about it no one will
09:52
leave your event going man we didn’t do
09:55
a bouquet toss that was awful I’m so
09:57
bummed out
09:57
they let us just keep dancing on the
09:59
dance floor and bugging and their deejay
10:01
was so great and you just let us dance
10:03
instead of stopping for bouquet toss
10:05
where all of the single ladies get to
10:07
parade out there and show their
10:08
singleness to the world
10:10
it’s like single Awareness Day but for a
10:12
bunch of eyes to see this is great no
10:15
nobody cares you don’t need to do a
10:18
bouquet to us or a garter toss for that
10:20
matter to if it makes you uncomfortable
10:21
if it makes your fiance uncomfortable
10:23
honestly no one will miss it and no one
10:26
will be upset that you didn’t do it
10:27
number eleven wedding favors if I had a
10:31
nickel for every event that I worked
10:32
that there were a bunch of favors left
10:34
over afterwards I would have a nickel
10:36
for every event that I’ve worked I
10:37
cannot tell you how often this happens a
10:40
bride and a groom will go out of their
10:43
way and create something really sweet
10:44
really cute
10:45
handmade artists in blah blah blah and
10:50
get it all put together and put a H seat
10:52
or put in a table before the guests
10:54
leave and there are a ton left over at
10:57
the end of the night if
10:58
if I can find the footage I will insert
11:00
some footage here from an event that we
11:02
worked recently where the bride had a
11:04
bunch of succulents and had them at each
11:06
place setting with people’s name tags in
11:08
them for them to take and they still
11:10
left a ton of them at the end of the
11:12
night when I tell you that people leave
11:14
favors look at all of these favors now I
11:18
know people is still in the dance floor
11:19
and they may come back for them but
11:21
likely they’re not going to look at all
11:22
these savor savor savor savor savor
11:26
savor favorite favorite honestly people
11:30
are not gonna come back to them I may or
11:32
may not have like five of them in my
11:34
house now but most people forget them
11:36
they just do and see you spend all of
11:39
your time making this sweet intentional
11:41
artisanal gift to give to everyone and a
11:44
lot of them get left behind and that
11:46
sucks so instead if you really really
11:48
feel like doing something even leave a
11:50
little tag at each place setting saying
11:52
in lieu of favors we decided to donate
11:54
to 11 above every Baba and list your
11:57
favorite charity or skip it altogether
11:58
because again most guests won’t leave
12:02
your event going oh I didn’t find any
12:04
favorites do you find any favorites
12:05
I’m man it’s not gonna happen they’re
12:08
not gonna know people forget them people
12:11
are not aware of them so put your time
12:13
and energy elsewhere number 12 grand
12:15
exit guests are not invested in the
12:17
grand exit what they’re invested in is
12:20
you guys so when it comes to whether you
12:23
want to use sparklers or bubbles or
12:25
ribbons the guests don’t care about the
12:27
grand exit they don’t care about lining
12:29
up they don’t care about having the
12:30
photographer’s yell at them to smile and
12:32
wave what they care about is you guys so
12:35
don’t stress about those details it’s
12:36
just not worth hey there are plenty of
12:38
other areas that you can invest your
12:39
time energy money blood sweat and tears
12:42
into other than these twelve items that
12:44
most people aren’t going to care about
12:46
so there you have it twelve things that
12:49
your guests don’t give a flying start
12:50
and space about you’re welcome no but
12:53
really spend your time energy money
12:56
everything blood sweat and tears
12:58
elsewhere because at the end of the day
13:00
these twelve items really don’t build up
13:03
your love story and they don’t make for
13:04
an amazing or epic guest experience
13:06
they’re just extras so instead
13:10
your time Manan Minardi your time and
13:13
monarchy elsewhere I don’t know what is
13:18
