Congratulations! You were invited to a wedding as someone’s companion. Since you may not have been personally invited by the couple, there may be a lot of things you don’t know. Don’t panic, we’re here to answer some common questions that everyone has so that you can be the best wedding date of all time.

Do I have to pay for the trip / hotel?

You should plan on paying your half of the tour and hotel fees. In some cases, your date may offer to cover the cost, but when you agree to be someone’s escort, you should plan to spend money to get there and stay there, just as you would for any other event. If you don’t think you can afford it, have an honest conversation with your potential partner and let them know that as much as you’d like to attend, you don’t think it’s feasible. Don’t wait until the last minute, so they have plenty of time to find another date if necessary.

Do I need to buy a gift?

Although it is not necessary to buy the couple a gift separate from their registry, it would be a thoughtful offer to contribute to the gift of their date. It could be a fun activity to go shopping for your gift together! The amount you want to give depends entirely on your relationship with that person and the partner. No matter what happens, your date is sure to appreciate your offer of help, and it’s a great way to thank your partner for letting you be a part of their big day.

What should i wear?

Ask your partner if you can take a look at the wedding invitation or website so you can get an idea of ​​the dress code. Make sure you stick to it! You wouldn’t want to go to a black tie event with something casual. It’s also a good idea to match the formality of your date so that the two of you don’t appear to be attending two different weddings. If you are not sure what each dress code means, we can help. You can always ask a member of the wedding party to guide you if they don’t know what to wear as well.

What should I do if my partner is at the party?

If your date is at the wedding party, there will probably be times when you will be alone. On the morning of the wedding, they will probably spend time with the bride or groom getting ready and taking photos. We recommend that you make friends with other guests who are not participating in the wedding party and who are planning to do something together or explore their surroundings. The couple may have left a welcome bag with a list of local things to do before the ceremony, so check it out. If you’re not sitting with your date at the reception, put your mixing and mixing skills to the test. You never know who you might meet at a wedding!

What events do I attend specifically?

Your date will likely be able to answer this question for you once they receive a formal invitation that outlines the wedding schedule. If you’re at the wedding party, the two of you can be invited to the rehearsal dinner the night before. There may also be a brunch or a welcome party as part of the wedding celebration, so depending on whether your date was invited, you can go. Be sure to pack accordingly.

Will I meet someone there?

Depending on how well you know your date, the partner, and their friends, you may meet a good number of guests or you may not know anyone. If the latter turns out to be true, try to keep an open mind. Your date likely knows other attendees, so you can follow their lead to make friends. Don’t be afraid to chat with other guests and participate in the wedding events! A wedding is a great opportunity to meet new people.

What should I know about the couple?

Ask your partner to tell you about the partner if you don’t know much about it. Finding out the details of how they met and how long they have been together will help you learn a little more about them. It could also help with conversation starters throughout the day. You should also know your date’s relationship to the couple in case other guests ask how you know the newlyweds.
