Weddings are meant for the brides and maybe grooms to shine -- above everyone else. But what can possibly blur a bride's big day?

You may have the fiercest little cocktail frock you're dying to debut, but the dress code may be black-tie optional. And in that instance, you're better off in a long gown (so you don't have any chance of feeling underdressed).
We know, it’s your one and maybe only chance to get really dressed up. But remember that you'll be walking from table to table and dancing till midnight. Please do not embarrass the bride should you fall on the dance floor. Many will think you got high and the bride will think you wanted to ruin her wedding.
