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!
