If you are located anywhere near the Triad, you probably do listen (or have listened) to 1075KZL on the radio, at least once. They're pretty much the go-to station around here! Which is why we were over-the-moon ecstatic when our very own etiquette expert, Ayesha Oglesby, was invited to do what she does oh-so-well - advise! She shared some fantastic wedding tips for both brides and guests (like how to deal with bridesmaids who don't get along.) If you didn't have a chance to listen to it, we happen to have the clip right here!
Have no way to listen right now, but want to know what they talked about? These are the priceless tips that were shared:
What do I do if my bridesmaids don't get along or hate each other?!
There are two ways to handle this. The first, of course, would be to talk to them, let them all know how much you love them, and how much you would like them to get along before and on your big day.
But if that still doesn't work, Ayesha suggests hiring a wedding planner. Wedding planners are well versed in handling family drama, bridal party drama, and drama in general! They'll allow you the freedom to focus on getting married, while they take care of the issues at hand. It's a great way to get that stress off your back!

Should a bride and groom let their guests know ahead of time whether or not there will be alcohol at the reception?
According to Ayesha, it is definitely not good etiquette to use the invitation to tell your guests whether or not there will be alcohol at the reception. However, if you're looking for an easy and courteous way to give them a heads up, a custom wedding website is the perfect way to keep them updated on those kinds of details.
