Be a Guest with Good Manners with these tips from our editor
Turn off your phone.
You don’t want to be that person whose phone rings in the middle of I-dos.
Don’t take phone pictures at the ceremony.
None. Never. Major no-no. Brides pay big bucks to have photographers document their weddings. The last things they want are photos of phones raised above heads during their ceremonies.
Don’t post photos of the couple on social media before the couple does
Unless they provide you with a specific hashtag and give the go-ahead.
Don’t assume kids are welcome.
In fact, it is better to assume they are not invited unless explicitly told.
Don’t assume you are allowed to bring a guest.
If the invitation is addressed to you alone and you aren’t sure if you’ve been given a plus one, check with the couple. Usually the invitation will specify the number of guests allowed per invitation.
