  Why Couples Choose A Charity Registry Instead of Wedding Gifts And 10 unique charities to consider for yours.Whether you make a donation to a cause in place of party favors or ask your guests to invest in a charity instead of a crock pot, a little selflessness can go a long way for many non-profits—and experts say the practice is becoming more and more popular for engaged couples.

Don’t even think about doing this on someone else’s big day.

Wedding guest etiquette isn’t always clear and simple: Wedding dos and don’ts vary based on the formality of the event, how well you know the bride or groom, the setting, the time, and a number of other factors. But there are some things you just don’t do at a wedding. Ever.

A guest wearing white to a wedding is one of those things you just don’t do—but, it turns out, many couples believe that’s not the worst thing you can do. Wedding planning and registry site Zola surveyed more than 500 couples getting married in 2018 to find out what that all-but-unforgivable guest faux pas is: According to 25 percent of respondents, the worst thing a guest can do is make a major announcement (like an engagement or pregnancy) during someone else’s wedding.

Here’s Why Prince William Won’t Be Prince Harry’s Best Man

  Here’s Why Prince William Won’t Be Prince Harry’s Best Man There's a good chance that Prince William won't be best man because of this important role he'll be fulfilling instead.While it’s been rumored that the bride-to-be wanted to have her mother, Doria Ragland, walk her down the aisle, that idea has been sidelined in favor of William doing the honors.

It makes sense: Making an announcement like that during an event celebrating someone else draws all the attention off the happy couple and onto you. If you have something major to share, maybe wait until the day after the wedding.

Other major guest don’ts include complaining about the wedding, which 20 percent of respondents said was the worst thing guests can do. 19 percent said getting too drunk was the biggest no-no, while 13 percent selected giving an embarrassing toast and 11 percent chose forgetting to RSVP. Only 6 percent of survey respondents said wearing white was the worst thing a wedding guest can do.

So there you have it: Next time you’re preparing to attend a wedding, you might be able to get away with wearing white—but don’t even think about making the day about yourself. (And maybe reconsider wearing white, while you’re at it.)

And the creative ways they dealt with the forecast. © Nicole Nero Studio About a week before the wedding, Hurricane Harvey was downgraded to a tropical storm and heading toward Upstate New York, where our wedding venue was located. My parents live near the venue, and I’m so grateful for it—they were quickly able to put our rain plan into action. They worked with the rental company to not only confirm the tent, but also add tented walkways from the cocktail hour and ceremony tent to the main barn. Of course I was worried, but we just felt so fortunate that we weren’t one of the weddings completely devastated by the hurricane.
