No Ring, No Bring.

Last week, I heard on some cheesy daytime show that Pippa Middleton (or whatever her married name is now) was enforcing a "no ring, no bring" policy for her wedding guest list: no "plus ones" for friends and loved ones unless they were married or engaged.

For those too cool to watch, the show follows brides as they shop for their dream wedding gowns at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City.
