A bride and groom have been slammed after announcing the 15 rules they had for wedding guests.

Now, your wedding day is perhaps one of the biggest - if not the biggest - days of your life so naturally, you want everything to be perfect.

But one of the biggest factors that'll most likely determine how smoothly your day goes is your guest list.

While you may be forced to invite that one cousin you absolutely despise just to keep the family peace, or send a personal note to the friend who likes to strip when they've had one too many to drink, the rest of the rules are unwritten, right?

Well, one couple decided to crank things up a notch just to ensure that their day goes to plan and give their guests a set of 15 rules they must follow if they're attending the event.

The post, which was titled 'Wedding Rules', was taken and re-posted to Reddit under the 'Wedding Shaming' thread with the tags 'Bridezilla/Groomzilla.'

The caption also read: "If someone sent this to me I would simply just not go."

Number one on the list was: “This is [redacted] and [redacted’s] big day, not yours.”

"Do not get in the photographer’s way," read rule number two before the couple stressed that the dress code was black and gold, not "red, blue, green, and definitely no white!"


The list continued, writing that if guests did not pay for the big day, they should keep their opinions to themselves, which, is actually pretty true no matter how blunt it may be.

"Your opinion is irrelavant," they declared - the misspelling of “irrelevant” was also apparent.

The next rule read: "Pace yourselves when drinking" before telling guests that they should not make big announcements or proposals on the day either.

“If you can’t handle or dislike the music, simply go home,” they also added. “This is a celebration. Not a funeral.”

They also reminded people that there will be "twerking", so people should be aware of this, before additionally asking guests to use a designated wedding hashtag for any social media uploads.

Guests were also told to refrain from sitting down throughout the evening

The last three rules urged people to have fun.

While the rules actually seem pretty tame, many pointed out that they did not like the blunt tone it was giving.

"I feel like all of these could be rewritten to not sound like an a**hole," wrote one user while another added: "Yeah. None of the rules are that bad. But it's weird that some of them have to be said (who are you inviting to your wedding that you have to tell them to not complain about your wedding?) and some could be said much more polite and fun."

A third agreed, writing: "I mean, many of these things are just 'Be a human who can function in public.' If people on a guest list need to be told some of this... well, that’s part of why I got married at city hall. But as an adult person possessed of basic human decency, I am rolling my eyes if this is a message to all guests."

And this user responded to the previous comment stating that the entire list gave "office staff party" vibes.

"It just seems like major control issues and overthinking. If I got a list of rules that cringey (turn it up allll the way) I wouldn't go. This is like a management memo to an office staff about the Xmas party."

What would you do if you were handed this list as a wedding guest?
