Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 30, 2013
Being invited to a wedding is an honor. The couple has chosen to invite friends and family who mean the most the them to share in one of the biggest days of their lives. As a wedding guest, it’s important to make sure to follow proper etiquette. On June 26, 2013, the Star Tribune published an article entitled “How to be a Good Wedding Guest”, and Do the Bride a Favor is taking inspiration from this article to offer wedding guests etiquette tips.
When a wedding invite is received, be sure to RSVP as soon as possible. Some brides choose to have child-free weddings, and it’s important to be respectful of that.
Always be early to a wedding. It’s never appropriate to be late to a wedding ceremony. If there is a scheduling conflict, always contact the wedding planner or the bride.
Wedding gifts are an important way to communicate love and good wishes to the couple. Friends typically spend $50-100 on a gift, while family members and close friends typically spend an average of $200-$350. If the bridal couple has a registry, purchasing wedding gifts on that list is usually preferred. If the couple does not have a registry, come up with a gift that the bride and groom can use and enjoy, whether it’s a gift certificate or a wine gift basket.
As the reception winds down, be sure to thank the bride and groom before leaving. Most weddings will feature custom wedding favors such as juicy chewing candy or other edible items. Take these when leaving the reception, and be sure to thank the bride and groom for their generosity.
Do the Bride a Favor gives etiquette tips to wedding guests such as responding to the invite promptly, purchasing a gift, and thanking the bride and groom during the reception.
