    Elaine Swann: Hi! I am Elaine Swann with Everyday Style. Today we are talking about wedding etiquette for the guest. Thinking about what to wear to that wedding? Well, the answer to wearing white or not is no, you cannot. White is still traditionally reserved for the bride. Now unless the wedding happens to call for an all white wedding or something that has to do with beach attire, then it's fine. But other than that, make sure that you leave that color for the bride. Don't be late for the wedding. No one should be walking down the middle of the aisle after the bride has. Now if something happens and you happen to arrive late to the wedding, just slip into the back and find a seat right at the rear of the church. This way you don't make such a big commotion. Now speaking of commotion, this is a great time to go ahead and get a babysitter. I know we all think that our little one is perfect but this is a time where you probably don't want to ruin someone's once in a lifetime day. So splurge and get that babysitter. Keep your cellphone in the car. Many of those think that we should just go ahead and leave it on the vibrate function, but every once in a while, we forget. So to avoid any disasters just leave your cellphone in the car and you can retrieve it after the wedding. Next, lets talk about what we should do at the reception.
