Now that you are engaged, there’s lots to plan. Your mind must be all over the map. Here are some etiquette tips to help guide you through the process.
- Arrange to have the in-laws meet before the rehearsal dinner and most importantly before the wedding. This will help ease any tension and awkwardness, which also will give you peace of mind knowing that they will be able to take care of themselves without your presences.
- Anyone who is invited to the shower, bachelor or bachelorette party, should be invited to the wedding.
- A THANK YOU NOTE is a must, absolutely not via text or social media. No exceptions. Granted, we live in a world of technology and social media, but thank you notes need to be personal.
- Request that cell phones be silenced at the ceremony. This is for both the bride and groom, family and guests.
- Back in the days, the bride and groom would take off after they say their vows. But, it is always better for the bride and groom to send off their guests with heartfelt thank-you and goodbyes.
This is your wedding, your day. It is as important to remember all the details, but knowing that you are doing the right thing by approaching the planning with love, compassion, consideration, and integrity for both you and your guests is equally important.
To help ease some of the stress of planning, why not work with a good venue and vendor? Allow the venues or vendors to help take some load off and provide recommendations. Delegate some responsibilities to ensure you and your guests are well-taken care.
