Wedding Guests Do's and Don'ts

1.Remember to RSVP
Pay attention to the deadline on the invitation. In fact, if you know your reply, then give it straight away.

2. Don't assume you can bring a date.
Unless it says “and guest” on the invitation, only you should be attending.

3. Don't wear white
... unless you are trying to pretend to be the bride.

4. Turn your phone off 
At the very least, keep it silent during the marriage ceremony.

5. Do stay out of the photographer’s way.
He or she needs to capture those special moments... without your damn iPad blocking the way.

6. Do sign the guestbook.
The bride and groom will want to remember everyone who attended.

7. Don't SMS or Call the bride and groom on the day itself
If you have a question, then check the invitation or the internet or call someone else like the maid of honor or parent who is likely to know the details.

8. Don't try to steal the thunder
It is not your day to start announcing that you're pregnant or any big news like that. It is in bad taste to freeload on someone else's party to celebrate your own good news.

9. Don't be late for the ceremony
If you are, grab some seats near the back so as to cause as little interruption as possible. Stay off the aisle! If the wedding venue is a particularly small space, I suggest waiting outside, as even your entrance can be distracting.

10. Don't be absent
You obviously have something more important or, even worse, forgot. And don't think that the bride and groom won't care about your absence because they spent hours planning the guest list and are spending quite a lot on a meal that you are not there to eat!
