At the risk of being accused of beating a dead horse, I am going to drag the etiquette issue out one more time. One of my readers left me a comment asking where one might be able to find wedding etiquette. In this day and age when society seems to have forgotten most etiquette rules and regulations, I can understand why my reader might be at a loss as to where to look.
There are many resources when looking for wedding etiquette. Obviously one need only search the internet to find many different resources for the proper manners to use at your next wedding. One might even venture into a library, where I am sure there are many different very dusty books that will fill you in. Last but not least, try your Mom or your Grandmother. They might be your best resource of all. I know I got all my best advice from the generations before me. They are, after all, the ones that first taught us etiquette when we were little children and grabbing something across the table. Come on, you remember your Mom…”Don’t grab that, what do you say if you want something?” and your required answer to get the prize…”Please, Mom.”
Moms and Grandmas know all the rules…give it a try.
Best Wishes, Barbara
