Good guests bring good energy. The Knot recently asked Brandi Glanville, Josh Murray, Aubrey O’Day and the cast of E!’s Famously Single about the best things they can bring as wedding guests this summer. Check out their answers below, which are surprisingly relatable and sweet!
Brandi Glanville and Calum Best
The Knot: What are three items — that could either be physical items or emotional — that you would bring with you to a wedding?
Calum Best: I would say a nice blue three-piece suit.
Brandi Glanville: I think, a tissue, because I cry all the time. I love weddings …I love going to them. [Also I would bring] Aspirin, for the day after.
Calum Best: I think, good banter. If you’re the best man, you [should] write a funny speech. I think they can be a bit serious. You should try to make it more lighthearted and fun. Make everybody chill out a bit, because people can get quite nervous.
The Knot: As a wedding guest what are three things that are must-brings?
Josh: I try to bring my thoughts, my energy and everything. I try to bring calmness to the groom, if he is one of my good friends and just have him chill out and just enjoy the day and be blessed. And I don’t know? Like physical things, I don’t know. The only thing I can do is bring some sort of good emotional support for my friends there and just try to have a little fun.
The Knot: Everybody has such good answers! I would sit there and be like lipstick? Tissues?
Josh: Maybe tissues right?…. I mean my eyes are sensitive anyways so always at sensitive times if other people are emotional, I’m not emotional, but my eyes they start tearing and I swear I’m not crying but I’ve got to wipe my eyes because that will happen.
Pauly D. and Aubrey O’Day
The Knot: Because it’s wedding season, we want to ask: What are three items that you bring, as a guest, to every wedding?
Aubrey O’Day: I would say a card is very important, because you can document all of the special times you’ve had with someone and the ways that you’ve seen the couple connect. I’m such a big card person. He doesn’t like cards as much as I do. But, I think what you say to somebody in a card is more important than the gift.
Pauly D.: I’m gonna say music. Sometimes the DJ isn’t so good, so you bring a little USB stick. You have songs, you knock ‘em out of the way, and you just jump on for a little bit. That’s what I would do.
Aubrey: He really did have a thumb drive the other day.
Pauly: One more thing?
Aubrey: What would you bring, cash?
Pauly: We got the card, we got music…
Aubrey: I think positive energy. So many people are stressed out on their wedding day, and there are so many things that happen that go out of your idea of what your perfect day would look like.
Aubrey: I think the more positive you are, the more loving you are, the more the people involved in it feel good about the experience.
Dr. Darcy Sterling
The Knot: So it’s wedding season, what are the three things you must bring to every wedding excluding gifts?
Dr. Darcy: A commitment to supporting the couple because the whole purpose of making a commitment in public is that the people who are getting married, the community witnesses their vows and the people who are in that room should take that commitment very seriously and it takes a village to keep a couple together. Relationships are the hardest thing on earth to make successful so everyone who’s there and witnessing that very special event should take responsibility for that couple in doing whatever they can to keep them together. How about one good answer instead of three? I just don’t think I can top that… I just really think that that is the most important thing that a guest can bring to a wedding.
The Knot: Obviously, it’s wedding season now. What are the three things — it could be physical items or emotional items — that you bring to every wedding, minus gifts?
Jessica White: First, wisdom. A hug with a whisper in the ear that says, “Are you sure?” And a thumbs up “I’m praying for you” at dinner.
It’s funny, but it’s the truth. And every single person at their wedding seems to migrate to me and they go, “Am I really doing this?” And I’m like, “Yeah, you are!” I am such a lover of love, and it’s funny because my love life does not reflect how much I am a lover of love. I think, on the show, you get to see that.
