It shouldn't need to be said, but some people clearly haven't got the memo yet – you never risk upstaging the bride on her wedding day.
Even if she's the most laid-back bride in the world, other guests may still judge you.
If you need absolute proof that this is a bad idea, then look no further than this savage tale of revenge.
Spilling all the juicy details on Reddit , the guest explained how they attended their cousin's wedding last summer when one of the bridesmaids, no less, had some news to share.
"After the ceremony was over and the party had only just started, one of the bridesmaids decided to announce her own engagement," the guest explained.
"The attention was immediately taken away from the newlyweds and brought to the bridesmaid (who I'll call Sarah) and her equally-smug fiancé.
"My cousin's wife (I'll call her Emma) didn't make a scene or utter a single negative word about Sarah. She looked like she was on the verge of tears, but she kept grinning and acted very happy for the other couple.
"This was unusual, as Emma is typically quite confrontational and speaks her mind no matter the consequences."
Fast forward to last weekend, when it was Sarah's big day and she'd returned rhe favoyr by asking Emma to be maid of honor.
The guest tantalisingly adds, "This is where the fun begins.
"Emma's two much-younger sisters were the flower girls at Sarah's wedding. At the very last moment, Emma switched out the white petals in their baskets to blue ones she had secretly brought with her. She told her sisters not to say anything about it or let the bride see them until it was time to scatter them down the aisle.
"Sarah looked very confused upon seeing the blue petals (which didn't coordinate whatsoever with her theme), but of course she didn't say anything about it in the moment.
"Most of Sarah's other bridesmaids were also Emma's friends, had attended Emma's wedding, and were in on Emma's scheme.
"Finally, it was time for the speeches. The speeches took place in front of a massive screen, displaying a loop of photos with Sarah and her husband, which had been compiled by Emma.
"Emma took the remote that controlled the presentation screen and at first she showed some pre-approved humorous photos of Sarah with Emma and other friends to facilitate a couple lighthearted jokes.
"Then, at the very end, Emma said to Sarah that she must be wondering why there were blue petals instead of the white ones originally planned.
"That was when Emma displayed the last slide from her presentation.
"Emma announced in front of everyone that she was five months pregnant, and that she'd just discovered the baby was a boy, hence the blue petals. The last slide? Her ultrasound picture.
"There were shocked yells and gasps, Sarah had a fit, but those involved in the scheme cheered so loudly that I sincerely regret watching the snapchat recordings with headphones.
"Apparently Sarah had been very nasty to her bridesmaids before, driving several of them away and forcing the others to pay ridiculous amounts of money for dresses.
"Emma and my cousin were eventually thrown out of the party, but they were all smiles. Sarah's fuming mother went to confront her outside, and Emma retorted with, "Gentle, gentle! I'm pregnant!"
