Aw nice story! Unfortunately for us we were just disappointed by the lack of etiquette when it came to our wedding :/

@MrsBeck:  For real. We’re still waiting on SO MANY RSVPS–most from people who freaking live in town. I know a few people are waiting to confirm plans, which is fine, but FI’s brother, who is supposed to be IN the wedding, has yet to get measured for his tux, probably won’t bother RSVPing, etc. I refuse to contact him, but I need to have FI call (which he won’t answer) or email him and tell him that they NEED to send in the RSVP card otherwise they will be marked as not attending and there will not be any seats for them.

I had 100% RSVPs from my side! A few people I asked verbally before the deadline, but still!

@Pumpkin_Bee:  My great-uncle is well-off and very generous, so his monetary gifts for graduations and life events are always larger than most – and always sent by his secretary. Growing up, we always sent announcements and thank-you cards to his office address as a matter of course, since we knew it would get to the right person that way.

For my wedding, his gift was not only incredibly generous ($1000!), but this time he included a personal, handwritten note congratulating us and explaining why he and his wife couldn’t make the wedding. It was so sweet, and I loved that he took the time to add a personal touch.
