A FRIEND HAS OFFERED TO PUT UP A PERFORMANCE BUT I DON’T WANT MY WEDDING TO COME ACROSS AS A SHOW. HOW DO I TACTFULLY INCLUDE IT IN MY BANQUET?
A wedding is a celebration of family, friendship and love, and if you are honoured by a friend who wants to put
up a performance, you should embrace it! If they are highly confident, have them intertwine their performance with speeches by the bestman and maid of honour or feature it as a surprise act after, so that it doesn’t come across as a show. We’ve had very talented groomsmen who performed their speech as a rap. And for shy friends who are less confident, give them the spotlight towards the end of the dinner in good fun, when everyone has had a few drinks—the occasional off-key tune or dance misstep will hardly be noticed!
