Our Swell Exclusive to you... Wednesday Wedding Etiquette from the Past... Until Now
Emily Post's Etiquette 1957. The classic. It really is no wonder that I became a Wedding Coordinator because my Grandma used to read to me from that book... Emily Post's Etiquette. I was HOOKED! Love rules... and guidelines...with a light-hearted touch. So, I'm sharing with you, a little Wednesday Wedding Etiquette. I hope to keep this going for a while, so stay tuned!
From 1957 to 2010, a few things have changed.
1957 by Emily Post: "The first fact to remember is that all the expense of a wedding belong to the bride's Parents."
2006 by Peggy Post: "Traditionally, the bride's family assumes the burden of most wedding costs... Nowadays, however, just 27 percent of weddings are paid for soley by the birde's parents."
Good news for Bride's Parents?
