Call in to speak with the host
The Wedding 101 Show host David Rothstein tackles common blunders made by brides and grooms on their big day. “The first mistake they make is having separate rooms at their reception—one room for dinner and dancing, and another room for the bar, photo booth, suite tables and so on,” he says. “But what that does is draw half of your crowd out of the main room, where they hang out. That’s a dangerous thing to do. What you get is two half-weddings. The second mistake is having too many events at the same time. Sometimes couples will have six toasts, and then a video montage, and then Uncle Jim’s going to play the trombone with the band and then there’s a special presentation to your grandfather. The danger here is that if any of the events run longer than scheduled, it gets exhausting for your guests.”
It's good to talk.
