If you’re like most engaged couples, you’ve probably experienced some etiquette issues during your wedding planning process. There are lots of people involved with putting together a wedding (of course, yourselves, but also family, wedding party members, guests, etc.) and a lot of emotions, too, which can be a recipe for drama. Fortunately, WeddingWire is here to help! In the “Dear WeddingWire” feature in our new WinterBook, we asked wedding planners and experts from around the country to answer some of the most-asked wedding etiquette questions. And if we didn’t answer one of your questions, feel free to reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter, and we’ll do our best to assist you.
