So, just how well did you do?

1. Do I need to bring a gift to an engagement party?
c) Yes, but just a small token gift is okay.

2. How soon do I need to respond to a wedding invitation?
a) ASAP
The bride is busy planning the most important day of her life; help her out by sending in your RSVP as soon as possible. She will truly appreciate your promptness.

3. Can I ask to bring a plus one if I wasn’t given the option?
The answer to this one depends on whom you ask. Many people say that a) Absolutely not is the only way to go. Of course, we have also heard of instances where a close friend asked the bride to bring a plus one after she had become very serious with her boyfriend and the bride agreed, so sometimes c) can work as well.

4. If I am taking pictures, can I keep my phone out during the wedding?
c) It’s up to the bride and groom, if they’ve asked me not to, I’ll respect their wishes.
Many brides and grooms are asking people to leave their phones alone during their ceremony. If this is the case at the wedding you’re attending, taking photos instead of being in the moment as your friend gets married is simply unacceptable.

5. How long do you have to give a wedding gift?
a) One year

6. How much should I spend on a wedding gift?
c) There is no minimum or maximum, but rather what depends on my budget and my relationship to the bride and groom.
To find this answer, we went straight to the Queen of Etiquette: Miss Emily Post. As she writes on her website, “There is no rule, so it is entirely up to you. Let your affection for the bride and groom and your budget be your guide. “
