DO COUPLES HAVE ONE YEAR TO SEND OUT THEIR THANK-YOU NOTES TO GUESTS?
Gift-givers want to know that their gifts arrived safely and that the couple is appreciative. Thank-you notes are expected, and by today’s standards should be written and sent as soon as possible – at the very least, within three months of receiving each gift.
SHOULD COUPLES INCLUDE REGISTRY INFORMATION WITH THEIR SAVE THE DATES OR INVITATIONS?
Short answer, NO. Including registry information with your save the dates or wedding invitations is still considered impolite because it can come off as though you’re asking for gifts. But couples still do it.
Two good suggestions that are effective; tell your wedding party, parents and close friends where you are registered, and let them fill guests in. And/or feature the information on your wedding website. The wedding website can host all the extra information.
IF I SEND A SAVE THE DATE ANNOUNCEMENT TO A PERSON AND THEY INFORM ME THEY ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND, DO I STILL HAVE TO SEND THEM AN INVITATION?
Yes, proper etiquette suggests that you send an invitation to every person that received a save the date announcement. Their plans might change and they may want to celebrate your special day with you. So review your list and check it twice, before mailing out your save the dates.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT OR NECESSARY TO HAVE A DINNER MENU AT A WEDDING?
(2) two good reasons why you should have dinner menus at your wedding reception. One, the menus can serve as a decorative touch to your table-scape. And, two, a dinner menu can let your guests know what’s coming next. If a guest is allergic to something on the menu, the guest can review the ingredients ahead of time, to avoid a disastrous event.
