RSVP on time

Good wedding guests always RSVP on time. Most of us know if we'll be attending a wedding the moment the invitation arrives. Check the box and slide it back into the mailbox. Not only is it easy, but it's courteous too. RSVPs serve an actual purpose. There's really no excuse for not returning an RSVP in a timely manner, no matter what excuse you're making up in your head right now.

Arrive on time and carry cash

You'd think that this is self explanatory, but there's always some confusion surrounding timing. If the invitation states a 5pm ceremony start time, that's the time the bride should we walking down the aisle. No one wants to interrupt the procession to scurry to their seat, that's awk. Plan on being near the ceremony site 10-15 minutes before the scheduled start time. Do a little research to see where you'll be parking, if there's a shuttle or a valet. Hence the cash, always be sure to have some cash money on your person when you go to any event. You'll want to be able to pay/tip the valet and the bartender.

Send the gift in advance

This little tidbit is often overlooked. It's proper etiquette to send your gift in advance, be it an item off the registry or a card. It's a better way to ensure that your gift will not be lost, damaged or stolen.

Dress Appropriately

Use your best judgement here, unless you have terrible judgement. The time and location of the wedding should give you a pretty good indication of the expected dress for the wedding. Remember that weddings are usually classy affairs. 

Rule of thumb: keep your boobs under wraps and make sure your skirt is more than two inches below your vag. How classy does Christine Andrew look? We thoroughly approve of this look.

This is simply out of respect for the occasion. You can slip into your hooch dress for the after-after party 1800 hotline bling or the bach party. Have a ball.

Know when to stop drinking

Hey tiger, you better know when to hold 'em. Know your limits, as we've mentioned over and over, this is NOT a frat/sorority party. The father of the bride will be none too happy if he has to babysit your drunk ass to keep you from acting afool. Stay classy San Diego.

Toast Takeover

This isn't open mic night, aight? The tipsy guest who hops on the mic for a 23 minute unrehearsed speech is not going to go over well, no matter how well intentioned it is. Step away from the mic. Back up slowly. Nuff said.

Have fun

Above all else, enjoy this event. Take in all the love and the beauty of the day. Talk to people, show gratitude for being included and for the love of all that is holy - remove that pole from your ... - and just dance. No one's looking at you and no one cares how bad of a dancer you are.
