As a professional planning service, one of the first topics that most couples are concerned about is proper etiquette. Going further from there, proper etiquette relating to who pays for what. Nowadays, there are so many couples that pay for the complete wedding themselves or have a sponsor (family member) offer to help towards the expenses. I still swear by the old fashioned rule of thumb that is written in the 'Emily Post Book of Etiquette' but the following site bullet points the basics IF you are thinking of sharing the costs. Costs should be discussed with everyone present and agreed upon in advance. NEVER assume this just happens.
A native New Yorker, I started planning parties, fashion shows, special events and beautiful weddings in the 1970's and 80's. With a background in design, marketing and business, special events and weddings still remain an integral part of my life.
"The real reward is at the conclusion of every event, when the client tells me that is was 'more' than they could have ever dreamed it would be".
I look forward to being a part of your special event!
