As a guest at a destination wedding in Portugal, there is a sort of protocol that must be followed. You are expected to act a certain way to cause a good impression, and therefore we have put together 5 things to Avoid as a Guest During a Destination Wedding in Portugal, as there are several things you must be attentive to. Also, do not forget that you have both cameras and video filming the destination wedding in Portugal, so any silly move and it will be recorded forever. To help you out, and to ensure that you do not embarass yourself in any destination wedding in Portugal, we have joined together 5 things to Avoid as a Guest During a Destination Wedding in Portugal. Read below, and be sure to remember this during your friend's destination wedding in Portugal!
1. Change of Clothes!
We all know how hot it can get during a destination wedding in Portugal, however unless instructed by the bride and groom you should not change your outfit. Sure you can take off your blazer after the wedding ceremony, however you do not want to be the dumb guy who is in his Ralph Lauren Polo whilst everyone is wearing black tie event attire.
2. Drinking one Too Many!
Despite the heat and blazing sun during your friend's destination wedding in Portugal, you really do have to moderate the amount of drinking you do. The sweet and refreshing cocktails, can easily go from cheerful in the park to oh my god why did I have that hairdo at age 15. You do not want to be the one making a scene during someone else's destination wedding in Portugal, so keep your drinking under control. There is always water and fruit juices being served at the wedding cocktail if you do not want to drink alcohol.
3. Dipping for a Refresh!
Yes there is a pool. No that does not mean you can go in. Just because there is a pool does not mean you can dive in. Before jumping in, think to yourself, is anyone else doing this? Well I be the only one? Did the bride and groom let me? If they did not, then you are strictly forbidden of entering the pool during the destination wedding in Portugal. Again, you do not want to be the silly soaking wet person whilst everyone else is being well behaved.
4. The Joke Everyone Missed!
Do not be the guest who makes these jokes about the couple that no one understands. Trying too hard to be funny can get you awarded with glares instead of laughter. If you are asked to comment on the bride and grooms relationship for any wedding video, do not mention football, that time you went drinking and things took the turn for the worst or any other similar embarassing stories that no one wants to be reminded of. Just be honest, polite and cordial.
5. 50 Shades of White!
Only the bride is allowed to wear white. Therefore, do not wear white or any other color resembling to white. Pearl is also not an option. There are so many different colors in the clothing industry, that we are sure you can come up with something that is beautiful, attractive, nice and definitely not white, without having to try too hard. The only exception to wearing white, is if the bride herself has mentioned that white is the dress code. However, that rarely ever happens, but in any case you should still always pay attention to the dress code listed in the invitations.
