This seems like common sense, but you would be amazed at how many times I ve seen guests show up in white, or near white dresses.
Probably the worst case of this was when a bride s future Mother in Law arrived at the church wearing a white gown, but that s a story
for another time. In any case, there is a full spectrum of tones that you can wear to a wedding, including black so why not just leave
white for the bride?

2. Arrive at the time on the invitation.

There is a myth, particularly in New York, that the real start time is actually a half an hour after the invitation time. It isn t
really. It s at the time that was carefully selected and it would be appreciated if you got there at that time. And, if you do arrive
late, please, please DO NOT walk in, see that the ceremony is happening and then exclaim loudly Oh My God!Did we miss it? But
Ceremonies NEVER start on time yellow cocktail dresses . They actually do. And this one did, so just be quiet and move on with it. Similarly, while it is
appreciated that you didn t want to be late, it isn t always appreciated when you arrive an hour before the invitation time either. We
all recognize that you want to beat traffic, but killing time is what Starbucks are for.

3. Arrive with the people to whom the invitation was addressed to.

No, it wasn t a mistake that your children s names weren t on the invitation. When your envelope arrived and it didn t say and guest
it actually was completely clear whether or not you could bring a date? (the answer is no, because it didn t tell you to on the
envelope).

4. Don t bring a boxed present with you.

Yes, it is true that there are some bulky items on wedding registries like lamps or toaster ovens or ice cream makers and what have
you, and it IS the right thing to do to purchase the couple a present. The wrong thing to do though is to bring that present with you
to the ceremony and reception. It s inconvenient and you don t get extra credit for showing up with a gift. You have a year to send
them a present, so just order something or the registry and have it sent to them.

5. Some people will have been asked to make toasts, if you aren t one of them, please do not try and make a toast.

First of all, speeches at weddings are generally the low light of the night. Secondly, the couple almost always carefully selects the
people who are invited to speak at the wedding. Third, if they didn t choose you, no matter how amazing you think your words of wisdom
might be, you should keep them to yourself.

6. Similarly, do not make requests of the band or DJ.

Hmm. How do I say this politely? Someone paid for this band or DJ and they took the time to hire professionals AND to review the songs
that they wanted played and not played. They did not pay this person or group of people to be human juke boxes, no matter how badly
you may want to hear Beyonce or what have you. And, part two of this is, please don t, don t, plus size casual dresses don t ask to sing with the band, it
doesn t matter how much everyone loves your version of Delilah or Mony, Mony.

7. Don t expect special food.

If you have dietary restrictions or allergies that are very severe, it s probably a good idea to give someone a heads up when you
respond to the invitation. If you have?super?severe dietary restrictions, it s probably a good idea to bring your own snack or eat
before you arrive in case you don t like what is presented to you at the event. It s totally reasonable to expect?something?for you to
be there, but not rational to assume that if you are a Vegan with a gluten allergy that you are going to be thrilled with the special
dish that is presented to you. Carry a Vitacost bar or something like that in case you aren t happy instead of complaining about it.

8. Don t complain to the bride and groom at the wedding. ?When I had my own wedding many moons ago, we had a catering mishap at the
reception and it took way too long to get food out to the floor. For me, as a professional, it was a horror that I tried to not let
traumatize me. For most of my guests it was a fabulous excuse to keep drinking without being interrupted by the nuisance of food.
Except for my Aunt Fran, who wasn t content complaining to the bartenders, waiters, my friends and my family. She just couldn t help
herself and had to walk up to me while I was on the dance floor, pull me away and tell me that she was hungry and mad about it.

9. Don t Complain to the Bride or Groom?after?the wedding either. ?A few days before my last client s wedding the groom rang me anxious
to know my opinion on bathroom attendants. I told him I didn t think it was necessary, but was curious what brought it up. He told me
that one of his colleagues had a huge, black tie reception a few weeks ago and that his aunts kept calling his colleague to complain
that there weren t any bathroom attendants. WHY they would feel that this complaint merited post-event attention is beyond me, but the
point is, plus size white dresses it wasn t appropriate. Even if it was the worst wedding you ve ever gone to, you weren t invited as a critic, and they don t
need your constructive criticism. Chalk it up under not the best night ever and move on with your life.

10. Fornicating.

I ll leave it at that. Wait until you get home. Please. No area of a wedding is private enough for this. Follow Xochitl Gonzalez on

Every year we entertain at?more than 40wedding receptions, have experienced many different wedding guests doing all kinds of
things. As we close out 2011, I wanted to share with you some advice from our friends over at the blogsmaid blog, wedding dresses for girls that is on point
and practical.

Sadly, the worst behavior is typically saved for the actual reception itself. My belief is that the offensive guests usually aren t
self-aware enough to realize that they are being rude or inappropriate. So, to quote an Oprah-ism, If you know better, you do better,
I thought I would prepare a simple check list of 10 things to?not?do if you are a wedding guest. These are all culled from real life
experience, no fiction here.

1. Don t wear white unless you are Pippa Middleton or a guest of Kim Kardashian and were asked to do so.
