Weddings can be incredible. Or they can be a nightmare. Or a bit of both. But one thing is for sure: Special events are only as great as the guests who attend them. And you never want to be the one to put a damper on someone’s big day.
We’ve all seen egregious behavior go down at a wedding. Who among us hasn’t brought a date who drank so much he fell on the dance floor and knocked over the bride?
But rude wedding etiquette isn’t just about the big, embarrassing scenes. There are lots of small- and medium-sized ways to be that guest who adds extra stress whether you mean to or not. To really bring your best self to someone’s special day, it’s important to respect their wishes and show up with love and awareness of how much the couple poured into their event.
From what you wear to what gift you bring (hint: use the wedding registry!), brush up on these tips from event planners and etiquette experts to make sure you avoid common faux pas and arrive at your next wedding as an A+ guest.
