Q: At a recent family wedding, some of my cousins were perturbed that the bride and groom did not walk around to each table. One cousin in particular felt that if they wanted the check they should walk around and get it. I, on the other hand, wanted to get rid of my card with enclosure and so I walked up to them while we all were on the dance floor. Is the couple supposed to walk around the room from table to table or is it acceptable to walk to the couple? I thought maybe these rules have been relaxed some.
A: If the bride and groom greeted their guests in the receiving line, they are not obligated to visit with each guest at his or her table but they may certainly do so. It is perfectly acceptable for a guest to approach the bride and groom with a card and check.
