Although they may seem to be fixed rules, the truth is that social norms evolve. Times change, and so do society and the unwritten laws that govern them. Of course, wedding social norms change with the times as well – but what are some of the most modern ones out there? What are the social norms of modern weddings?
We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- Providing transportation for the guests. With more and more weddings happening outside of the couple’s hometowns, the idea that guests have to be transported to and from the hotel has grown to be quite popular. After all, these people have come a long way to celebrate your love story – and they do deserve to be treated royally.
- Sharing the news on the social media. Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat – social media has grown to be an integral part of our lives. Therefore, it was only a matter of time until new social norms emerged out of the cyberspace as well. Our advice is to only share your engagement news on the social media once all of your close friends and relatives have been personally announced. Otherwise, they might get offended by the gesture…
- Accommodating as many dietary options as possible. You might not be able to have a menu for every type of dietary restriction out there – but in general, it is a very good idea to have something vegetarian, something gluten-free, and something lactose-free. Also, pay attention to the most common food allergens as well – the last thing you want are guests who cannot touch your wedding food due to their allergies.
