I saw something so simple and brilliant this weekend I was surprised I hadn’t seen it before. On the inside of the very cute escort card, there were two little stickers reminding my friend...

Wedding Gifts and Re-Gifting, Can it Be Done?

by Azure

Happy Monday! I’ve been thinking about gifts and re-gifts today. I know someone who is a notorious re-gifter. She accidentally gives people back gifts that they bought for her, as well as gifts that were obviously bought for her by other people. She has given people gifts with cards tucked into the box that are addressed to her. She’s shameless about it. Why do I think this is so tacky? It’s because she’s ignoring two underlying beliefs about presents. The first is that...

Keeping Track of your Wedding RSVPs

by Azure

It seems simple enough. You fill in a reply card and the bride and groom know whether or not you’re coming to the wedding. Believe it or not though, most couples wind up with at least one or two mystery responses. Either the responder forgets to put in his or her name, or the handwriting is illegible. It’s common practice to suggest that couples put a discreet number on each reply card, and then match that number to a specific guest. So, if Aunt Betty is number 1, you make sure...
