In our wedding, I saw some guests wearing jeans. I didn't like it at all. If you go to a wedding, you do a little effort to dress up for the occasion, it is respectful to the couple and everyone who worked hard to make that day special.

getting married next summer.....is this something you can tactfully put on the invitations?

We were invited to a Sikh wedding in Oxford once. You should have seen the amount of cash given to the couple . THen there was the fantastic food and unlimited free booze....
I remember gatecrashing a Sikh wedding years ago - it was held in a restaurant - we were just wandering past - and thought why not - we went in - grabbed a drink and just started talking to people.

No one even asked who we were!! We left after 1/2 a dozen drinks

Or hitting on the interviewer Lol just kidding!
My two cents.. Nothing says unprofessional like:
Gossiping
Ill fitting clothing
Unkept
Poor hygiene
Foul language
Really? hmm it appears hard-core porn has taught me nothing about appropriate interview technique.

and, if in any way possible, not inviting 790 people you don't know? I understand that in some cases it is not really possible, but try - it was stressful enough with only a handful, I would have gone nuts with 800!

And we are now totally offtopic.

I think I knew maybe 10 of them...

Tradition Honey, tradition... That was a tough night, but you should have seen the gifts!
I know what you went through. Im getting married next year and my wedding guests will include all kind of distant relatives i probably met once or twice, friends of my parents who i dont know (the friends not the parents!) and friends of my other relatives. And we are a big family. As you said is tradition. You cant invide just some of them. It has to be every single one!

Re: Nothing says unprofessional like.......

Gads. This is why we went for the eloping option. Pretty much every married guy (and a fair number of married women) I've ever met has said "That's what we should have done".

We have a Swiss guy in the office who won't say "Ken can you just help me with something." or "Ken, if you have a moment can I talk about the email you sent" etc etc

He just stands near my desk - silently - loitering.

He's just weird.
Put a note up saying 'No help given unless requests are sung'.
