You might be surprised to hear this, but an impressive number of people will walk into a wedding and immediately start criticizing every decision the bride and groom has made. Have they forgotten the old adage, "If you don't have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all?" For those who may need a reminder, here are 32 questions and statements you should never—under any circumstances—bring to a couple's attention at their wedding. Whether you have good intentions or not, these are things the bride and groom just don't need to hear.

 

Wedding Etiquette Mistakes Not to Make

 

1. We can't believe you pulled it off!

2. Who's the hot bridesmaid? She stole the show!

5. You should have a drink!

6. Your dress must have cost a fortune!

7. That hairstyle isn't the most flattering choice for you.

9. Let's take shots!

10. Are you happy with the way it all turned out?

11. This wedding must've been really expensive!
