Expected etiquette from guests attending marriages/functionsRecently I attended a function organized by a family friend. I felt so bad on seeing some guests hurrying themselves to move out as they were very busy with their schedules. One couple, without could be seen taking leave of the host without even taking breakfast. Another set was busy on their phones telling their daughters that they would be starting soon. It could be observed that many are not taking breakfast and very minimum persons were staying back for lunch.
Nobody was thinking the about the difficult position of the hosts as they would have planned for breakfast, lunch etc and also arranged for other services for the persons invited. Because of such persons, the wastage of food etc would be more and it would also leave the hosts feeling bad.
So, my humble request to those who are very busy and do not have time to spare is that they should either intimate their inability to attend personally or must send a letter in advance to the inviter.
