Etiquette

These 10 hints will help make the planning of your wedding and the big day that much bettter.

1.
Thank You Cards are a must!
  • People who give you presents through the mail, a shower or at your wedding usually expect a thank you note.
  • Be polite and try to send your notes within three weeks of receiving your presents!
  • Remember these notes should be hand written!
  • Also don't forget all of the people who threw you showers, helped with your wedding preparations and of course those helping to pay!
2.
Figure out who is going to help pay!
3.
Don't go beyond your  means.
4.
Invitations, get them out and early.
5.
Bridal Shower Guest Lists, can't invite just anyone.
6.
Deal with someone who knows about weddings.
7.
Personalize your wedding and reception, but do not make it tacky.
8.
Remember you and your new spouse are the host and hostess.
9.
Spend time at your reception and enjoy your guests.
10.
Calling off the wedding!
