How to Welcome Your Wedding Guests

Could there be a wedding without guests? With one voice we can all answer this question that this cannot be done. After all, sharing your happiness with your family and friends is all about it. And there is no arguing to the statement that you cannot celebrate this day alone and it will probably look weird if anyone from us conduct his/her wedding function in a relaxed and quiet atmosphere.

To be a guest at the wedding is arguably an honour, a solemn and a big responsibility because it is not everyone who falls in the list of elected people and gets invitation card. That is why the guests are obliged to justify the trust of the host.
