Wedding rules

The New York Times reports on the new rules for today’s weddings.

Claudia H. Deutsch writes (excerpt):
Use the occasion to reach out to others. Donate centerpieces to a nursing home or hospital; your guests don’t really need them. Instead of tossing the bouquet, give it to the grandmother whose marriage has lasted the longest. Some brides donate their dresses to a consignment store. “The ‘grateful’ bride and groom has turned into a nice humanitarian trend,” Ms. Forden said.

Attend your own wedding, for goodness’ sake. “So many brides say the wedding went by in a blur,” she said. “Visit the tables, dance with your siblings, make the guests feel wanted, eat the food you’ve spent so much on. In the end, the best weddings are the ones where the bride and groom really enjoy themselves.”

    If you are invited to the bridal shower are you suppose to be invited to the wedding as well? I was invited to the shower but did not receive an invite to the wedding. Kathy Stager
