Every bride-to-be knows that planning a wedding is a long and difficult process. You have to think everything out to the last detail. Why? In case you do not do that, dozens, if not hundreds of wedding etiquette questions are likely to come up. After all, you cannot know all the answers to the most pressing questions if you are planning a wedding for the very first time. In the process of preparation, you find out that even the most customary tasks require a good deal of forethought and etiquette expertise. Here is an interesting fact: there are hundreds of non-negotiable wedding etiquette rules for both to-be-weds and wedding guests alike. To avoid making any faux pas at your wedding ceremony and reception, take a few minutes to read the following etiquette tips for brides-to-be.
- Who should find out about your engagement first? According to etiquette, you should share the happy news directly with your family and closest friends before you post your engagement ring to Instagram. Parents are supposed to be the first people to know about it, so tell them in person, if it is possible.
- Remember, that wedding invitations are sent in order to let your guests know you love them and want them to witness your wedding vows, not to ask them for gifts.
- Such pre-wedding parties as Bridal Shower, Bachelor, and Bachelorette Parties make us a crucial part of the preparation process. However, be careful whom to invite. These events are supposed to have smaller guest lists and occur in a more intimate setting. Make sure all the people which are to be present there are also invited to the wedding. Who else can walk you down the aisle? Traditionally, it is the bride's father who takes this role. Still, you can ask anyone, who is close and important to you, to walk you down the aisle, for example, your mom, brother, uncle, stepdad, and so on. If you know for sure that someone will not be able to attend, should you send them an invitation anyway? In such a situation, it is better not to send an invitation card since it may come as an expectation of a gift.
- Don’t Forget to Feed Your Vendors. These people will be working hard not only before your wedding but especially on the big day, so remember to take care of them.
- Send thank-you notes. Do not wait for too long to show your gratitude. Try to thank your guests as soon as possible.
