We all have friends and relatives who are offering to help with your wedding as their gift to you. There are several areas where a donation of someone’s expertise or talents would not only save you money but would add a meaningful, personal touch to your big day. Here are some etiquette tips regarding accepting your loved ones’ offer to help:
1.) Be sure they are qualified to do the job well. If you are not quite sure they can measure up to the job, thank them, and tell them you already have someone helping with that task.
2.) If someone offers to help, tell them you would be happy to accept their services as a wedding gift.
3.) Tell them how much it means to you to have them contributing to make your day special.
4.) Always send a written thank you after the wedding.
The best parts of any wedding celebration are the personal touches added by the bride and groom such as creating and saying your own vows, your decorations and theme, personal photos, and other special items. Always add your personality and passions to your wedding.
