Call in to speak with the host
What’s a couple to do when the groom’s best buddy—who’s atop his invite list—is among the bride’s least favorite people? “That tends to come up a lot, often it’s an old college friend and she knows it’s bad news when he gets together with her fiancé,” Chris Easter of groom resource TheManRegistry.com tells Black Bag Productions host Kim Moss. “But this is one time when the bride shouldn’t necessarily have final say as to who’s going to be in the wedding party. I think the magnitude of the event shold be enough to nullify any issues that might come up. If the bride and her groom’s friend have a history of not getting along, I’d suggest they all get together for dinner in the months before the wedding and just be clear that they need to set their differences aside for the day of the wedding."
It's good to talk.
