Myth: A white dress is only supposed to be worn by a virginal bride.
Truth: A white dress signifies that a bride has never been married before (source: too many Miss Manners columns to count).
Myth: The value of a wedding gift should cover the estimated cost of the guest’s or guests’ dinner at the reception.
Truth: The value of a wedding gift should match what the guests find reasonable and affordable (again, too many Miss Manners columns to count).

Myth: The bride is the point person for all guest wedding related questions.
Reality: H to the No! We’ve already got too much going on. Talk to our moms or a bridesmaid before you come to us. If they can’t figure it out, we’ll help you then!

Myth: the bride and groom shouldn’t see each other before the ceremony. It’s bad luck!
Truth: this is a hold over from the days when arranged marriages meant a bride and groom may have never met and was intended to prevent the groom from running off if he found his betrothed unattractive. I think we can retire this one.
