The Common Manners of Being A Wedding Guest!

Start Reading

1) Avoid wearing white or ivory dress

If you're the maid of honor, a wedding guest, or a member of the bride's crew, please don't wear white to the wedding unless the bride asks it.

2) Follow the Dress Code

Even if black tie is not your preferred attire, you should still follow the instructions on the invitation if they specify a certain level of formality.

3) Don't bring uninvited person

One of the worst things that can happen is for friends to look at wedding photos and wonder, "Who is that person?" years later.

4) Don't go off the registry

Avoid going against the preferences of the newlyweds as much as possible by giving a "unique" wedding present.

5) Share the right stories

It's better to keep those embarrassing anecdotes PG-13 while you're among family, as things may rapidly become awkward otherwise!

6) Don't take much time of newlywed's

They should be applauded and greeted, but you shouldn't take up too much of their time as they work the room.

7) Don't go without invitation

This rule should go without saying, but you should not attend if you were not invited. And if you receive an invitation without a plus-one, do not bring one.

8) Do Flirt with singles

If you are single and looking for love, it is completely okay to flirt at the singles table.

9) Do Arrive on Time

Showing up late to the reception and then following the bride in will make you look careless. In the same vein, you shouldn't arrive late to the reception.
