This week we’re playing “most likely to…”-wedding guest edition! We all have that one guest who we’ve considered telling to arrive an hour earlier to ensure they show up on time. Which of your guests is most likely to show up late to your wedding ceremony?

    My brother or my FSIL. They both are always late to stuff but its not an option here. If they are late the chapel doors are closed until the end of the ceremony.

    Actually all the people who are usual late arrivers are either not attending or are in the bridal party. That way we should be able to combat any late arrivers. The sad part is our venue will not allow anyone to enter the ceremony area once it has begun.

    Half of my family. That's why we are doing a champagne greeting to add a little buffer in the hopes that the stragglers will get there a little early.

    No way! Do you think they'll be extra careful to make sure they arrive to your ceremony on time?!

    I made it VERY clear that is you were not in your seat by the time on the invite, I was starting without you. His family is always late. Always. One aunt didn't even make it to the ceremony.

    We got lucky that everyone was on time, besides that aunt!
