23 Types of Wedding Guests (in GIF’s!)

If you’ve been to a wedding, without a doubt you’ve seen a couple of these typical wedding guests floating around. If you have a wedding around the corner, keep your eye out! They’ll definitely keep you entertained and give the wedding extra character and make it unforgettable.

1. The Bachelor

We all know this type. The bachelor but never the groom. Weddings are the prime location for these guys to show their suave moves.

2. Self(ie) Obsessed Wedding Guests

But first let me take a selfie. Some of these guests come complete with a selfie stick to make sure that they get the best angle. You can ask them how to get the best selfie for your wedding or to limit these guests, have an unplugged ceremony to make sure they don’t take away from your glory.

3. The Judge

Normally this is a recently married couple who compares everything to their day. They critique everything from the linens to the venue. If you hear something along the lines of “Did you see his cufflinks?! So tacky.” you’ve hit the jackpot!

4. Long Lost Family Member

This is the second cousin twice removed who you meet at your wedding. Who they are, you aren’t sure, but you assume that your parents invited them.

5. The New Best Friend

With love in the air, many friends will come out of the shadows and become your newly self-acclaimed best friends. Expect a lot of Snapchat stories and Instagram blow ups about how (suddenly) close you two are.

6. The Photographer

The dedicated guest photographer who thinks that their iPhone can do a better job than the hired professional. The pro of this is that you will have a lot of great pictures on your wedding hashtag!

7. Life of the Party

This is the guy/girl who runs out on the dance floor after your first dance to help entice the rest of the group to join them and get the party started. They’ll make best friends with your grandma and the ring bearers alike and make sure that everyone is having a great time.

8. Inappropriate Elder

Grandma Barb has had a few drinks and hits on all of the younger men at the party. She’ll probably throw out an awesomely uncomfortable pick up line like “I might be a retired photographer, but I can still picture us together.”

9. Incorrectly Dressed Wedding Guests

They totally missed the memo on what to wear to the wedding. Either they’re wearing white, something low cut, extremely short, or too casual.

10. High Maintenance Wedding Guests

This is the guest who goes above and beyond to make you cater to them: “This water has two lemons in it. I asked for one in it and one on the side.” Extra points if they invited a guest without invitation from the bride or groom.

11. The Crier

Okay, we know, weddings are definitely filled with emotions. But there’s always that one guest that it affects more than anyone. Have extra kleenexes stored away for these people!

12. Anxious Mother of the Bride

More likely than not, mom has been a big part of the entire planning process. The mother of the bride will probably be found running around before the wedding to micromanage every single thing.

13. Always a Bridesmaid

You’ve heard the saying “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” However, these are the bridesmaids that you’ll love the most. They are the veterans who can give you the best advice for your wedding without any judgement of comparing it to their own.

14. Self-Appointed Wedding Planner

Normally this is one of your already married bridesmaids who wants to give their two sense on every decision you make. Since they’ve done it before, it’s never a bad idea to get a few tips or tricks for your big day to help keep it affordable.

15. Wedding Crashers

Honestly, this could add some extra excitement to the wedding. While you may not know them, they’ll probably just show up to the reception and liven the party up.

16. The Over Indulger

Some guests just like to make sure they’re extra hydrated. They’ll probably be your signature wedding cocktails biggest fan! Maybe consider a limited time open bar so you don’t have to worry about any extra clean up.

17. Wedding Guests with the Cute Factor

Whether they’re the ring bearer, the flower girls, or just the adorable children dancing around on the dance floor, they’ll guarantee to have you laughing and saying “awe” by the end of the night!

18. Friend Group Reunion

Weddings are the perfect place to reunite with your friends that you haven’t seen for a while. Having a reunion dance party is a must!

19. Recently Single Relative

We’ve all been there. Weddings aren’t the best place for these people. You’ll probably see them at their table scoffing at the happy couples. Have them get out on the dance floor, enjoy themselves, and get their mind off their recent breakup.

20. Unannounced Speech Maker

Most likely they’ve had some liquid confidence and got a hold of a microphone. Guaranteed to be awkward or hilarious. We’ll opt for the latter!

21. The Professional Dancer

There’s one in every group. After a few of the top wedding dance songs and them loosening up and stretching a little, they’ll break out in full dance mode. Whether that means the worm or the moonwalk, join in at your own risk!

22. Overbearing Family

If you’re the newly weds, watch out for the baby talk. If you’re a family member, guaranteed they’ll ask you when you’re getting married. These questions are most likely unavoidable, so be prepared at all times.
