Toast and Roast: By Others

At the rehearsal dinner or reception, be careful if referring to the bride of groom’s past relationships or telling stories involving their previous significant others. This can be hurtful and embarrassing for the couple. Better to save these types of reflections for guys-or-girls-only bachelor or bachelorette parties or showers. Be tasteful at the big events. […]

Return the Gifts? (marriage ends within few months)

Should we return the wedding gifts if the marriage ends in less than a year?

Some jewelry stores actually offer an “insurance” […]

Beware of that Wind!

Turns out the wind can be quite a pain in the neck during weddings. One video I recently saw, a tornado came out of nowhere without any warning while the wedding party and guests all conversed outside. This was an area that hardly ever gets tornados, so no one expected it. Luckily, it was just […]

Toasts, Roasts, and Writing You Own Vows

Speaking at the shower, rehearsal dinner, bachelor or bachelorette party, and reception is an important way for wedding participants to share their feelings about the bride and groom, as well as to introduce both poignant and humorous anecdotes about them to the other guests. Many people speak publicly at the rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and […]

Wedding Crasher Mobbed

This morning I ran across an online article that brings up a very wise wedding etiquette tip for potential wedding crashers.
There are three different kinds of wedding crashers I can think of. First there’s the comedian kind who likes to play practical jokes and causes a comical scene. It’s often planned or staged and often […]

Taking Off

Don’t change into a going-away outfit or even purchase a special one. Rather, exit as you entered: as the glowing bride.
