But there are certain awful guests who lurk at the fringes of every wedding and threaten to turn a joyful event into American Horror Story: Wedding Edition.
If you’re going to survive wedding season, you’re going to have to learn how to handle these annoying guests. Not to worry, though, we’ve come up with a list of the nine worst guests you’ll find at every wedding, and how to deal with each.
