Thank you notes and being gracious.

Because its not a day that is all about you. Its a day to share with your friends and family. You are hosting and a good host does her best to make sure everyone is comfortable- whatever that entails for your group.

Handwritten addresses on wedding invites and hand written personalized thank you notes. They mean a lot and a wedding is an important occasion and the guests should feel personally important to the couple.

I think most of it needs to observed. I get tired of the “it’s your day, do what you want” um – no. Only the actual wedding ceremony is yours, the reception is to thank you guests for supporting your marriage. There is a huge difference between etiquette and tradition. The traditions I think change, etiquette doesn’t.

I have to agree about Thank You notes.  They really mean a lot.  I went to a wedding in July 2010 where the couple refused to send out thank you notes.  I didn’t even know if she received my gift.  I just saw her for New Year’s and she said the gifts she received were so nice she didn’t think she could appropriately thank people in a thank you note.  What????!!!  That was the worst excuse I’ve ever heard for being lazy.

I also agree about the thank you notes. We went to a wedding 5 years ago, gave them money and a lovely wrapped gift as well, and never got a thank you note. This  is so rude, and even if it’s that long ago it still bothers me
