QotD: Invited

Question: When you're invited to a wedding reception, housewarming, bridal shower, etc., what do you consider proper etiquette?

My Answer: I typically overspend, and I almost always send a gift. The only times I don't send a gift are when I barely know the person who's invited me. In those instances, I send a card. More in a different post…

  1. I like to think of myself as a reincarnated version of Emily Post. I try to follow her rules to a T. Although there are a lot of rules to keep in mind, I think people who don't brush up on the common stuff (weddings, funerals, dinner parties, business meetings, etc.) are really cutting themselves short.

    I always base my gift giving on how well I know the people and how good our friendship is. But even if it was someone I didn't know well I still wouldn't be cheap with a gift. When all else fails I use the registry and pick up something that is practical. Also, I am always sure to send a thoughful card. This means I don't EVER just sign my name. I always include a very personal note, although if you aren't good at coming up with things on your own there are plenty of books out there to help like this and this.
