Practicing Wedding Etiquette

By Ayanna Maxwell

Between the venue, the dress, the food, the guest list, and everything in between, wedding planning can be overwhelming. In the midst of preparing for your wedding, it’s important to avoid getting lost in the details. Instead, keep these etiquette tips in mind throughout the planning process.

1. Thank your wedding party.

The members of your wedding party are committing their time and money to your special day; so, you should definitely thank them for doing so. Take care of your wedding party throughout the day by ensuring that they have breakfast and lunch provided. Also, feel free to give them a small gift as a keepsake and token of appreciation. Wine glasses, necklaces, cufflinks, robes, candles, and makeup bags are a few suggestions.

2. Feed your vendors.

Along with your wedding party, your DJ, wedding planner, videographer, and photographer, are all contributing to making your wedding day a dream come true. Be sure to include them in your head count for the caterer and remember to take note of any dietary restrictions.

3. Avoid including registry information on your wedding invitations.

The best way to spread the word about your registry is either by word of mouth or on your wedding website. You can include the website URL or even a scannable QR code that heads directly to your wedding site. Keep in mind that invitations are meant to be pure gestures, not gift requests.

4. Send “thank you” cards within 3 months.

Although writing thank you notes can be tedious, they are definitely necessary. You don’t want to wait too long to thank everyone who shared your special day with you. You should send thank you cards out no later than 3 months after your wedding. Here’s a tip: Get a head start on writing thank you notes before your wedding so you aren’t overwhelmed later on.

By following these tips, your guests, wedding party, and vendors are sure to feel welcomed and appreciated.
