No food throwing at the rehearsal dinner.

No matter whether you were a California girl or not, admit it: you learned things from Lauren Conrad and the "Hills" posse. Whether it's party etiquette, dating rules or friendship dos and don'ts, LC and the crew were an inspiration.

There's no doubt your friends are getting engaged left and right, so here are 13 lessons we learned about weddings from Heidi's legendary nuptials.

  1. Sometimes, you just have to nod and let your friend be crazy.

    Yes, even when she's suggesting live swans.

  2. ...Even though she's choosing her bratty sister as her Maid of Honor.

    "She's been my sister my whole life." FINE. TELL ME MORE ABOUT HOW CLOSE WE ARE.

  3. Parents just want you to be happy, even if they don't really get it.

    Yes, Spencer, tell her more about "the club." It's going well.

  4. If you're the bride, don't bother with blotting papers.
