Proper Wedding Etiquette

~You Get What You Give~

Getting married soon?  Using proper wedding etiquette will, believe it or not, make your day one to remember. There are so many rules involved in planning a wedding, it is easy to get caught up in all of it and lose out on what is special about your wedding.

Looking back to my wedding 13 years ago, I am so embarrassed by my lack of proper wedding etiquette. I am surprised that anyone came at all. I wanted things my way and was not willing to listen to anyone else. I did not use my pleases and thank yous and what do you thinks? Seriously the golden rule is so important when you are planning a wedding...

proper wedding etiquette helps your day look like thisNow that I am a little older and somewhat wiser, I would do things so much differently. I realize that there are so many levels of proper wedding etiquette. I do not want anyone else to make the same mistakes that I made, so I am offering proper wedding etiquette advice. Please understand that it is virtually impossible to make everyone happy all of the time, however there are ways to plan and pull off your wedding without being a bridezilla.
