A wedding is not a wedding without these guests. It’s just in their nature
to display their special character when they attend an event and that’s
exactly why we love them. Here are eight guests you will definitely see at
every wedding without even trying:
The Slay Queen

When you make an entrance just take that epic selfie that Instagram waits for every Saturday. For more buzz, wear a white dress if you have to! (insert wedding hashtag here).
The Drunk Uncle

The “I too know”
This person will complain about everything from the bride’s bouquet to the waiter’s shoes. Such people may also be referred to as haters or may just be having a rough patch of OCD.
The Party Starter

The Inappropriate one
This guest always displays copious levels of bravery, mostly the type that makes you shake your head, cover your eyes or laugh so hard that you have to get video footage. Chances are you may not be able to have absolute control over this guest so you just pray things don’t escalate out of control. “Oh my gosh, Toyin, Aunty Taiwo is twerking in the middle of the dancefloor!”
The Wannabe Photog

The Wrong Dresser

The Couple Hogger
Everyone wants to speak with the couple too! Now is not the time to tell them about your epic holiday to Thailand.
Have you come across any of these guests at weddings? Let’s toast to them, because they actually make everything fun!
