You basically treat it exactly the same as if a straight couple did the same thing.

You would ask them or have someone else ask them to stop, just like you would any other couple, lol. Personally, I have a Bridesmaid or Best Man who volunteered to keep an eye on certain guests we’re afraid might get too drunk or cause a scene.

What was the nature of the party?

I don’t think that there’s a way that you can preemptively ask people not to behave a certain way–especially if they’re guests. You just cross your fingers and hope that everyone behaves well and if someone doesn’t, you or someone else you appoint has to handle it when it happens. The good news is most people, gay or straight, don’t suck face on the dance floor at a wedding, even if they might do so at a more raucous party.

I wouldn’t worry about it.

If she’s a close friend can you be honest with her? Be careful about things said “through the grapevine”. If may have been more innocent than it is being portrayed to you now. Just make a light joke about it maybe? Like, “hey X, no making out on the dance floor, alright?”

Well what kind of party was it? When I think of parties I’ve been to vs. weddings I’ve been to… *most* people tend to act more appropriate at weddings. I hope you can trust your friend enough, lesbian or straight, to act appropriate at your wedding without having to chaperone as if it was a middle school function. If you were going to say something to them, then you would have to say something to every kissing couple at your wedding. Don’t let something that might not even happen put a damper on the happiest day of your life.
