Article written by guest writer & anonymous author, Mind Your Manners.

The big day is here. It’s finally arrived. Whether you’re the bride, groom, groomsmen, parents or parents who have children in the wedding, this day is meaningful and important. I wrote this guideline for how to be your best on wedding day many years ago, but it is still relevant today. It’s the little details that make a wedding day nearly perfect. This will be a five part series. Today, we’ll focus on how to be the best parents on wedding day.

Parents of the Bride/Groom

As parents of the bride or groom, you have large responsibilities. Even though you are an important part of the wedding day, remember that the day is not about you. You’ve had your day. This wedding day is about the bride and groom. You are there to be supportive and most importantly, to be parents.

  • Be prompt and gracious.
  • Even if you are not the biggest supporter of the wedding, the moment you slip and let negative words out, it is too late to take them and the damage they do back.
  • Even though you may have spent a fortune for the event, remember not to complain or brag about it.
  • To those who are blended families, remember to BLEND nicely all day. The bride and groom are not the reason parents separated or divorced, so put your personal feelings aside and rise to the occasion.
  • Enjoy the day and be happy for your son or daughter and their new spouse!

This is by no means an extensive list, but if you keep these in mind on wedding day, you’re well on your way to being the best parents on wedding day. 😉
