"Wedding gifts may be practical or fanciful, inexpensive or extravagant,
but each one represents the giver's hapiness for the bride and groom."
~ Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette - 6th Edition 2014
by Anna Post and Lizzie Post
I've written about gifts in The Wedding Series a few times, i.e., Gift Registries, Wedding Gift-Giving Formula and The Bridal Shower; but it's an important topic to revisit.
Whether the gift is for the engagement; shower; wedding; or gifts of appreciation to the wedding attendants, party hosts, officiant or others, it is important that both recipients and givers observe the etiquette involved, underlying which are respect, consideration, kindness and empathy. Thus, I'd like to reiterate some past advice add some new thoughts.
