Since many people will be addressing their wedding invitations here are some helpful hints. When addressing an envelope to a woman use Miss or Ms. if you don’t know if she is married. If she is a widow used her husband’s name, for example, Mrs. John Smith. If a woman is divorce and she keeps her ex-husband’s last name, she is known as Mrs. Mary Smith.
The two most important items in planning a wedding are good food and good music. When your wedding is over, your guests will only remember if they had a good time.
Make sure the music is not loud. Guests like to talk at the dinner table and they need to hear each other. If the music is too loud they will leave early.
When having bread at a meal, break off enough for two bites. Butter it if you prefer than eat it. Take a bite at a time. Then continue breaking off another piece and do the same. Remember to place your roll or bread in the small dish to your left. If butter is passed take enough and place it in your small dish. Please remember when you are dinning out never to lick your fingers after you eat.
Wedding Planning Advice:
When ordering wedding invitations make sure you buy an outer and inner envelope. You may write "and Guest" on the inner envelope. It should not be added to the outer envelope.
When applying for a job remember to give correct information for your references. Include a name, phone number and a former place of business. Employers do call former employers and if your information is not correct you will not be considered for the job.
In today’s world of computers, please do not send wedding invitations over the internet. It is proper to send a wedding invitation or any other invitation through the mail. A wedding is a very important day in your life. So it is only fitting that you choose an invitation on a good stock of paper and send it out in the mail.
If you make an appointment with someone please keep it. If at the last minute you cannot make it please call and say you are not coming.
This is especially important in business or if you are applying for an internship. If you don't show up you probably will never get a second chance.
Since this is party season I would like to remind you about RSVP’ing to parties at a person home.When you receive an invitation and it says “regrets only” you must tell your host if you are not coming. If you do not reply, the host expects you to come. Please make sure you tell the host yourself. It should not come from someone else. You should also bring the host a small gift when attending. Do not make a dessert or any kind of food for the other guests unless you are asked. The person having the party has already gone to a lot of trouble preparing for the party and bringing any type of food that is not wanted will only upset the host. So to be on the safe side and ask your host if they would like you to make anything. If they say yes than you may bring what they requested. If they say no and most hosts will say no than bring a small gift to the host to thank them for inviting you. www.socialgracesnj.com
