Updated: Mar 21

Planning a wedding is an exciting and special time in a couple's life. From picking out the perfect venue to selecting the most delicious menu, there are countless decisions to be made. However, one aspect that is often overlooked but is crucial to a successful wedding is understanding and following wedding etiquette and traditions.


At The Ballroom, we believe that understanding wedding etiquette is not only important for creating a memorable and meaningful event, but it also helps to show respect and appreciation for your guests. To help you navigate through some of these important rules and traditions, we have compiled a list of wedding etiquette tips to keep in mind when planning your big day.


Invitations: When it comes to sending out invitations, it is important to send them out promptly, typically at least six to eight weeks before the wedding date. This allows your guests to make travel arrangements and RSVP promptly. For a comprehensive guide on wedding planning, including timelines and important milestones, don't forget to check out our previous post Your Ultimate Wedding Planning Timeline: From 'Yes' to 'I Do'.




Dress Code: Make sure to communicate the dress code on the invitations so that your guests know what to expect. This will help ensure that everyone feels comfortable and appropriately dressed for your special day.
