Know proper wedding etiquette when preparing for your big day!

Whether you just got engaged or your wedding is in a couple of days, the process of getting married can be stressful.  Sometimes you may not know what to do in a certain situation, and you might make a mistake potentially offending someone.  When it comes to your wedding, proper etiquette is essential, so everyone from your guests to the caterer is treated well.  There a few simple etiquette tips you should follow when it comes to your special day.

Engagement Announcement

With technology and social media a major presence in most people’s lives, everyone tends to post important events in their lives on social media.  Although, it is not good taste and can be seen as disrespectful to announce your engagement on social media before telling your close family and friends.  The first people you should announce your engagement to are your immediate family members, and it should be in person or by phone if they live far away.  Once you tell your family and close friends, then you can announce to the world on Facebook that you are happily engaged.  

Invitations Are Not The Place For Your Registry

When you send out your invitations out to guests, you want to make them feel appreciated and welcomed to your wedding not that they owe you a gift.  Yes, it is a tradition at most weddings for guests to bring a gift for the couple, but you should not make it obvious on the invitation.  The best way to let guests know about your registry is through word of mouth and only if they ask.  You should supply your parents and the bridal party with your registry information because guests will likely ask them about gifts.

Be Wise About Seating Arrangements

When making the seating chart for your reception, place people together that have similar interests and would get along well.  Don’t just sit people together randomly or because everyone is single.  No one wants to feel like they are being matched up at a wedding.
