Wedding Rage Is Dangerous!

Too often we hear stories like these from our AAWP members:

There was a wedding guest who was insulted by another wedding guest at a reception. The first guest pulled a gun on the second--at the reception! Thank heavens that the best man was an off-duty policeman who diffused the situation.

In another recent story, I read about a disgruntled guest who drove their car through the front door of a catering property--while the reception was in full party-mode! Good grief!

And there are countless stories of barroom-type brawls that end up with wedding guests spending the night in jail.

Moral of the story: Don't let this happen to you!

When it comes to wedding rage, this is most times the culprit!

What Causes Wedding Rage?

I'm sure you know the answer. In most cases, wedding rage is caused by imbibing too much alcohol. 

So what do you do to prevent this situation from happening? How can you stop people from drinking too much at a wedding reception?

How To Stop Wedding Rage: Common Sense Tips!

Here's some common sense tips that you need to apply BEFORE your wedding takes place to prevent wedding rage:

* Advise your partying friends and relatives (who tend to get out of control at functions, etc.) that out-of-control behavior will not be tolerated at your wedding—and that your wedding is not an excuse for drunken behavior.

* Tell your catering property or caterer that they are not to serve guests who are showing signs of having imbibed too much.

NOTE and CAUTION: Your catering property, and/or caterer, may be held legally responsible for a drunken guest who does damage to themselves or others. In some states, bartenders are also held to task if they knowingly serve a drunken guest who later gets in an accident, for example. And sometimes, even the hosts of the affair may be held responsible--and that means YOU!

For that reason, you need to contact your caterer and/or catering facility to see if they are adequately insured. When it comes to weddings, it’s best to know a property’s/caterer’s liability and yours! You may need to get additional liability insurance to protect your assets.

Don't delay!
