					How To Write The Wedding Etiquette Wording<br><br>

During the entire course of the wedding, there are several instances that
require wedding etiquette wording. What is wedding etiquette wording? It
is a collection for phrases or paragraphs meant for the couple’s union.

The wedding etiquette wording follows certain rules to make it as
effective and elegant as possible. Traditionally, the bride handles all
the wedding details, including the wedding etiquette wording for the
groom. But thankfully, now there are some things that can be handed over
to other people like the wedding planner, a member of the family or even
the clergy.<br><br>

The announcement:<br><br>

The engagement can be announced to both families in an intimate
gathering. However, the law requires that the union be posted in an ad as
public announcement of their nuptial. The wedding etiquette wording for
this can be kept to a minimum. <br><br>

The details include, the name of the couple and their parents, the date
and location of the wedding and the reception information. More elegant
announcements can run a full-page story about the couple’s history but
members of the elite society mostly do this wedding etiquette

The invitation: <br><br>

After establishing your guest list, it is time to send out the
invitations. The wedding etiquette wording is very important and must be
written while considering the marital status of the couple’s parents and
the couple themselves.<br><br>

As more and more people get divorced, the wedding etiquette wording has
evolved to accommodate the changes. If all the parents are divorced, the
invitation should include all parents' names, with the bride's parents
first. The mothers should be written down before names of their ex-

It is important to note that wedding etiquette wording dictates that the
invitation contains the following: name of the couple, their parents, the
date and location of the wedding, wedding attire requirements, the map to
the wedding and reception area, the bridal registry information and other
details such as a wedding website of the couple.<br><br>

As a matter of wedding etiquette wording, all the wedding invitations
must come from the bride’s side, even for the friends of the groom. They
should be sent out six weeks before the wedding day. Guests from out of
town should be considered and have their invitations a lot earlier than
the rest so they can prepare for the event.<br><br>

The wedding vows:<br><br>
Traditionally, wedding vows are spoken to each other as dictated by the
clergy. However some couples prefer to make theirs special by making
personalize d vows. The couple themselves should write the wedding
etiquette wording for vows. Quoting a poem or a song is acceptable as
long as it is the person’s sincere words.<br><br>

The toast:<br><br>

Prior to the wedding reception, the family should be aware of the
program. At this stage, the host should have informed the concerned
parties of the wedding etiquette wording speeches they will make. It
helps to write down what one has to say to avoid stammering. The parents
or a very close family member from each side of the family does the
wedding etiquette wording for the speech. <br><br>

maid of honor. Usually expressing their long friendship and wishes for
their friends, the wedding etiquette wording for these speeches is short
but meaningful.<br><br>

The thanksgiving:<br><br>

Another speech that needs wedding etiquette wording is the one given by
the couple at the end of the program. The couple makes an expression of
gratitude to the bride and groom’s families, guests and everyone behind
the wedding event. Although the wedding etiquette wording may be
spontaneous than the previous speeches, it is nonetheless sincere and

The Thank you card:<br><br>

A week after the wedding it is customary to send out thank you cards to
the guests, those who gave a gift and the people who organized the
wedding event (including the wedding planner, the musicians, the floral
arranger, etc). A simple wedding etiquette wording would be a thank you
note or a poem signed by the newlyweds. <br><br>

This type of wedding etiquette wording job is often left to the bride’s
family including those guests from the groom’s side. This is written on a
plain white card. Whether the couple uses a standard thank you card or
print a personalized one, the wedding etiquette wording should always be
sincere, nice and unforgettable.
