What should I do if I think that one of my guests may cause a scene at my ceremony?

Related to Relationships

As a Celebrant I have had to manage a range of complex issues during marriage ceremonies. Often, the idea that a guest may make a scene, is the bride or groom projecting his or her own stresses and tensions in the lead-up to the big moment. Wayward are also generally corralled (or calmed) by your many other guests, the bridal party, the Celebrant or the function or venue staff.
