Tip of the Month

Avoid using address labels for your wedding invitations, thank you notes and save the dates because it tends to be interpreted as being impersonal. Instead hand write them yourself or hire a calligrapher to write them for you.

Bridal Q & A

This month's question is from Chikita who writes:

"My husband, a musician, and I are attending the wedding of a fellow musician. My husband was also hired to perform with multiple music groups for the ceremony and reception. The other musicians have decided to offer their services, which would normally pay $300, gratis. Is a gift still required?"

Dear Chikita,

Offering your performances as a gift is a great idea. As you probably know, hiring a band can be quite expensive, so this will save the bride and groom a lot of money.

You should definitely give the couple a card stating something like "Please accept my performance as a gift to you on your wedding day". You can also buy them something small from their registry if you would like also, however it is not required.

To your wedding! Danielle & Stephen
