Chain Dear Daisy: Some of my friends have told me I have a year from our wedding to write thank you notes, but others have told me that I only have a couple of weeks. Can you tell me what the proper etiquette is? –Hoping Not to Offend Dear Hoping: Still sporting your golden tan from honeymooning in paradise, the last thing on your mind is wedding etiquette. But waiting to send a thank you note twelve months after “I do” could end you up on Aunt Mildred’s you-know-what list. Thank you notes should be written

HERE ARE A FEW MORE POINTERS

Thank you notes should be handwritten and sent in the mail. Save email, blog posts, e-cards and Facebook for casual correspondence.

thank you! ASAP. For gifts and parties given before the wedding, it is expected to send a note within two weeks. Gifts received after the wedding are allotted a more generous time span, but should be sent no later than two months after the event.

23

Your thank you notes don’t need to be long. Three or four sentences are plenty. Be sure to mention the gift and how you plan to use it, though avoid specifying dollar amounts unless you want Aunt Mildred spreading rumors about how tacky the new bride is. For financial gifts, explain how you plan to use the money. Do not mention if you intend to return the gift, or worse, stow it away in a dark closet!

Thank you cards should be personal. While it may be tempting, fillin-the-blank templates, form letters, or generic pre-printed cards with your signature should be avoided. Even though you might save time, keep in mind that your gift-giver took the time to buy your gift, wrap it, and arrange for it to be delivered. It doesn’t hurt to show the same courtesy.

4

Waiting for custommade thank you cards with your photo shouldn’t cause a delay. If you plan to have custom-made cards, plan ahead with your photographer and/or stationer.

Dear Daisy: Is it okay to switch to sneakers during the reception or should I just keep my painful heels on? –UptownGirl Dear UptownGirl: Wanting to avoid pinched, aching, blistering feet? Your wedding may be the only day you will wear such a formal (and expensive!) gown. You will want wear to be as elegant as your dress, so instead your footwear ers, might I suggest padded bridal of sneakers, or ballet slippers? You will be able to find such comforts ocal bridal salon at your local e as $25. The for as little standard colors are white and ivory,, but depending on the style, many can be

dyed to match your dress. To avoid discomfort while you are wearing your painful heels, it’s a good idea to break them in several weeks before the wedding. Wear them around the house (never wear them outside or you’ll risk scuff marks!) and practice dancing in them. Charter the stairs several times and try vacuuming with them on (though beware - it may just drive your fiancé craz The more you wear them for regular activity, the more crazy!). com comfortable they’ll be when your big day arrives!

s highly regarded as the church, garden or hall, the reception venue is critical to a wedding’s success. When selecting a location, make sure it accommodates every guest and complements your type of wedding. Guests will drive to a separate site, but consider places within reasonable distances and avoid lengthy time gaps between the ceremony and reception.

Selecting the Best Venue

The venue is also not only meant to cater to you and your guests, but should cater to your vendors as well. Planning a cocktail hour and a four-course meal? Select a site with ample room for caterers to set-up both. Looking to shake your groove? Pick a place with an oversized dance floor that provides enough space for your

DJ’s speakers, turntables and the occasional strobe light. Above all, integrate characteristics about your life, your partnership and your guests to find the ideal venue. If you are an outdoor, adventurous couple, opt for a garden reception or a lavish tent party. Reserved and simple? Choose a country club, restaurant

or banquet hall for a romantic and intimate gathering. Into arts and entertainment? Consider a museum or gallery for a modern reception. Having a reunionstyle affair? Incorporate a place that holds personal significance (a familiar park, renovated warehouse, local watering hole, etc.). Finally, remember when you find the perfect place, don’t hesitate to secure it. The last thing you want to worry about is booking another venue if your dream site becomes booked before you make up your mind!

SOUTHERN BELLE MEETS MOTHER NATURE Outdoor wedding ceremonies in the Lowcountry bring to mind sweeping oak trees draped in Spanish moss, historic gardens, and turquoise waters under fiery Atlantic sunsets. But this idyllic fairytale can quickly come crashing down when you throw heat, humidity and bugs into the mix. But fear not – the fairytale can still come true if you pay a little extra attention beforehand. Follow these tips to avoid feeling the brunt of Mother Nature.

Heat Factor:

Humidity:

Bugs, bugs, and more bugs:

Upon arrival, have your greeter(s) pass out glasses of ice-cold lemonade. Afraid of broken glasses but still want that touch of elegance? Pick up some disposable “crystal” plastic or acrylic cups from your local party store. When the Lowcountry temperatures soar towards 90, keep your guests cool by passing out (personalized) hand fans. Be sure to keep well-hydrated leading up to the ceremony. The drier your hair is, the more it will frizz-out! Drink plenty of water, condition your hair daily, and consider using a twiceweekly oil treatment. Also talk to your stylist before your big day. Her ideas on products and styles may well keep your hair under control! Keep your face on. More than one blushing bride has risked looking like a half-melted candle due to the one-two punch of heat and humidity. To combat the heat, start off with a facial wash and astringent that help control oil. Make sure to use waterproof mascara and eyeliner (a must even in cold weather, as you will likely shed a few tears of joy on your wedding day!). Also use a loose finishing powder to serve as a “matte” over your eye shadow and foundation. It’s also a good idea to bring along tissue paper squares to blot your face throughout the day to absorb excess oils without disrupting your make-up. Most important, book an appointment with a make-up artist. They will have plenty of tricks to keep you looking fresh from morning till night!

Selecting the Best Venue

There’s nothing more distracting than a bug-slapping bride during the “I –dos”. Avoid bug sprays that leave odor and residue. Instead, enlist your father or a family friend to fog the periphery the morning of your ceremony. Organic solutions are also available – check with your local hardware store for options. Place citronella and TIKI candles around the ceremony area. Not only will it keep bugs at bay, the romantic ambience may just rekindle Aunt Fern and Uncle Frank’s long-lost passion! To avoid bees, have your florist clip the pollen from your bouquet. You may also want to avoid heavily fragranced flowers, so as not to attract stinging attention.

Beaten Track A

t a wedding in Charleston, a bride and groom broke out with the dance routine performed by John Travolta and Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction. While Chuck Berry’s You Never Can Tell doesn’t have the typical romantic lyrics expected of a first dance song, it showcased the couple’s zest for life (and the guests cheered wildly!). Not everyone has the talent (or quite frankly the courage!) to pull this off, but you can still make your first dance as husband and wife memorable and unique. Spend some time with your iTunes playlist and select a song that you and your spouse will never

tire of through the years (or for those 500 times you’ll listen to it before the big day as you tirelessly practice dance moves in your living room!). Don’t be afraid to choose something off the beaten – ahem – track, or worry about how every lyric might apply to you. Though you may want to refrain from that heavy metal big hair band to avoid poor granny from running out with bleeding ears! After their traditional first dance song, another couple chose Manu Chao’s Bongo Bong as an opportunity for the wedding party to pull guests onto the dance floor. At first there was some hesitation, but soon the dance floor was filled! A year later the couple was still being asked for copies of the song!

TOO MANY COOKS IN THE KITCHEN BY JOSIE MACALESTER

Too many cooks in the kitchen can spoil the soup may be a proverb from days past, but its message still rings true. Of the many hurdles that an upcoming wedding can present, dealing with your future mother-in-law can often be the most vexing. Planning for your big day should bring you closer to the in-laws, but so often the pressure and decision-making can sour that newfound relationship like a plate of deviled eggs served long overdue. In order to prevent your new life together from starting out on the wrong foot, follow these seven virtues when dealing with the Queen Bee – whether she’s a saint, or a monster-in-law in the making.

There may be times when you may want to unleash your inner demon by yelling, screaming, or saying something that you’ll regret. But there are some things that you can’t take back. So take a deep breath, and if need be, leave the room to cool off. Avoid passive-aggressive behavior (even if she’s a pro at it). Calmly explain how she has offended you. And remember - not everything is worth fighting for. Sometimes you just need to bite your tongue and move on.

Have faith in the bond that you and your fiancé share. Wedding preparations might require flexibility on your part, but don’t change your personality on a whim. Remember your fiancé fell in love with you because you’re you.

Just like you hoped your knight in shining armor would one day sweep you off your feet, don’t lose hope when dealing with your in-laws. Keep your chin up despite minor setbacks. Pessimism is too often a selffulfilling prophecy.

• Hope

• Faith

• Justice

• Prudence

Sometimes you can’t do everything yourself. When you aren’t having any luck flying solo, then it’s time to call in the cavalry. After all, it’s your fiancé’s wedding too. Try to avoid confrontation if possible and let him deal with the situation. She’ll respond better if she knows that her son is also onboard. It will also be much easier for her to forgive him than to forgive you.

• Temperance

Whenever the tea kettle is about to blow its top, it’s time to put things into perspective. Be the better person and exert self-control. If a certain dance or prayer doesn’t fit into your idea for the perfect wedding, sometimes compromising the smaller things is worthwhile. If Mom-in-law insists you wear a family heirloom necklace when you already have your accessories picked out, suggest sewing it into your garter, or converting it into a bracelet. If you show you’re willing to compromise, chances are she will do the same.

• Courage

When it comes to preparing for your wedding, don’t let the smell of fear be your first impression. Even if your mother-in-law is footing some (or all) of the bill, you should still have a say on the preparations. After all, it’s not every day you get to walk down the aisle. So don’t be a pushover. Show some spine, girl!

Too Many Cooks In the Kitchen

• Love

And last but not least...

10

Before any cliché eighty’s anthems start blaring in your head, let’s be honest. It was that ten-thousand-kilowatts of Romeoand-Juliet love that got you this far. So what makes you think it can’t take you the distance? Though you might often feel like you’re drowning in the day-to-day details, don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. If the love you share with your fiancé can stand the test of time, then certainly the love and acceptance of your new family can withstand a single day.

Wedding parties have been around as long as Roman times, with the best man originating somewhere around 200 AD.

A White Wedding?

T

A White Wedding

oday’s weddings have introduced a wide spectrum of colors, ideas and themes. Traditional white and ivory are being replaced with lavender, aqua, and lemon. Many couples dread choosing colors so often opt for “safer” choices. Here are some tips on how to incorporate splashes of color into your dream wedding without it looking like a “Thomas CLOWN Affair”! First, determine whether you want a formal, whimsical, classic or themed wedding. Next, jot down your favorite colors and share them with your fiancé to get his feedback (after all, it is his day too!). Take the top two or three colors you most agree on and fit them into a palette. 

Make sure two of your colors are understated. Use the softer and deeper colors for wedding attire, using the bright tones in a sash, tie or flowers. The softer colors will provide an elegant backdrop and allow for the brighter color to have more punch.

You don’t want your reception linens to blend (or compete!) with your wedding party, however, use the same concept for the linens and décor. If your bridesmaids are wearing pale yellow with magenta accents, your linens could be a darker lemon tone. Carry over the magenta accents into your floral arrangement, candles, wedding favors or menu card. Don’t forget to set the tone by incorporating your color scheme into your save-the-dates, invitations and other wedding stationery! A good stationer will know how to intermix these colors while still keeping an elegant look. If you’re still a bit nervous with colors, consult with your wedding coordinator, rental company or florist for assistance.
