    Elaine Swann: Hi! I am Elaine Swann with Everyday Style. Today we are talking about wedding etiquette for the guest.

    Now, I am going to hit on just a couple of tips for when you are at the reception. You arrive and there are all the place cards and there's your name on it; don't change seats when you are at the reception. Now the bride and groom they have taken a lot of time to place people at specific tables for a specific reason. So just leave your place card there, sit down and enjoy the group that you are with. You never know, you might meet someone special.

    Also, watch what you say, about the bride and groom. Whether you are sitting at the table or even delivering a toast. Now is not the time, to talk about how horrible, their ex was or how promiscuous they might have been in college. Those conversations are better left unsaid.

    Those were some tips for the reception. Let's look at what we should do when we sit down to dinner.
