Wedding Guests Reveal what they Hate most about Weddings

Wedding guests have revealed what annoys them most about weddings - and we think you might be surprised…

When you’re planning your wedding, it’s always good to keep your guests in mind; although it’s very much your day, your way, you still want them to have a good time! 

Jeweller Goldsmiths conducted a survey, revealing what guests find most annoying about the weddings they’re invited too, from overly long speeches, to long waits for food, and we were rather surprised by the results.

The biggest annoyance for those surveyed, with 39% griping about it, is being invited to hen / stag do abroad, closely followed by screaming children, which  36% people said was their least favourite thing about weddings - all the more reason for a child-free wedding

Drunken relatives came in third, with 34% whinging about them, while an inconvenient wedding location riled up 29% of those surveyed - that’s definitely high on our list - there’s nothing worse than having to catch multiple trains and taxis to get to the ceremony! 

Long and cringeworthy speeches were complained about by 29%, while 26% of people said an overly lengthy ceremony got their goat. A long wait for food annoyed 25% of people, and 22% were irritated by not being given a plus one. 

Finally, 17% of people hate being asked for money as a wedding gift, and 13% of people hate when a wedding falls on a weekday - we guess people are precious about their annual leave! 

Having read this, will you be changing any of your wedding plans to please your guests?

That's cute. If anyone has such strong opinions then they don't have to come to the free party I am inviting them to..

Wowzers the word hate is a bit strong. Should be a privilege being asked to a wedding, if you're not going to be appreciative that they are spending a fortune on a nice day out that involves children then you really shouldn't be accepting the invite, after all this is their day and not yours. I'm probably biased because I love all weddings hence why I'm a wedding photographer.
