Dear Wedding Guests:
When you go to a wedding, please do not take the centerpieces AND vases from the reception, UNLESS you are told it’s okay by the bride or wedding planner. Often taking the FLOWERS is okay. But NOT the glass vases. Either way you should always have permission.
Vases, tables, chairs, and even votive candles are often rented by the bride and groom. And actually need to be returned OR paid for. So not only did you enjoy dinner, cocktails and dancing on your friend’s dime, but now you have also cost them extra money to reimburse what you just stole.
ps I should add that melting candle wax on the linens because you are “bored” will not be received well.
pss Feel free to enforce these everyone-should-know-better rules at a wedding you are attending.
