The 10 Wedding Rules To Live By

When it comes to wedding etiquette, who knows better than the Emily Post Institute?

1. Let consideration be your guide: “Make decisions based on maintaining and caring for the most important relationships in your lives.”

2. “Don’t coerce anyone—especially your bridesmaids—to host a shower for you. It can be expensive and not everyone may be able to take it on.”

3. Don’t ask for money: “If you want monetary gifts, wait to be asked about what you would like. Don’t initiate discussion about your desire for funds or imply that money matters most to you.”

4. “Triple check your invitations for correct spelling.”

5. “Everyone who receives a save-the-date card must receive an invitation.”

6. “Eat breakfast on the day of your wedding.”

7. “Stay calm and try to enjoy your day.”

8. “Learn how to pin a boutonniere.”

9. “Don’t bring up touchy subjects when toasting the bride and groom.”
