Nashville, TN (PRWEB) July 11, 2013
A wedding is one of the biggest days of a couple’s life, however, some brides may be taking this a bit too far. The Huffington Post published an article on June 29, 2013, entitled “Wedding Gift Amount Deemed Insufficient By Bad-Mannered Bride” and, inspired by this incident, Do the Bride a Favor is giving tips to brides on wedding gift etiquette.
The head writer for DoTheBrideAFavor.com can be quoted as saying, “Listen here brides, don’t turn something beautiful into something ugly. Make a pre-wedding vow to yourself (and those who are there because they love you) not to become bridezilla! Whether the gift received is a real space rocket all fueled up or only a Mighty Mite Rocket gumball machine filled with gum, be gracious. If you’re not, your guest may just shove you into your new rocket and send your bridezilla self back to Venus.”
A wedding is a celebration of love and, as such, gifts are a way for guests to show their affection for the bridal couple. Whether the couple registers for gifts or asks for an investment towards their honeymoon, having an open mind and an understanding attitude is important.
Considering others is a huge part of a wedding. When planning a wedding, the budget usually comes down to a per-person price for food and drinks, including costly customized wedding candy favors. This budget should be decided based on the financial responsibility given to those contributing to the wedding, with no estimated investment from guests.
After receiving and tallying up the gifts, be sure to give time and thought to each person that gave a gift. There’s no way to know what the daily life of each guest is like, nor their financial situation. It’s important to be grateful for their attendance, and to thank them. A thank you note is customary, even if the gift is small. Express gratitude for their attendance at the wedding, as well as appreciation of their friendship. Having a grateful attitude will not only help the note-writing process, but will enable the bride to value every gift. If a gift is unusable, consider returning it or donating the item to a charity.
