Bridzilla Syndrom – Don’t Let it Happen to You!

Read some tips below on how NOT to become a Bridezilla while planning your wedding! Planning a wedding is stressful for all brides and it’s only natural for a bride to want everything to be perfect. A bridezilla is a bride who doesn’t just want everything for her wedding day to be perfect. She expects and demands it to the point of being unreasonable, demanding and at times irrational. While regular brides may get a little teary or frustrated during the wedding preparation process, bridezillas tend to be overly emotional at even the smallest details.   Here are Platinum Lining Events Tips on How to Stay a Calm, Relaxed Bride and tame your inner Bridezilla! Tip #1 – Receiving an engagement ring does not become a bride-to-be’s license to be haughty, witchy and demanding? Instead it you gives you the right to be fabulous, gracious and the opportunity of a life time to plan a unique, beautiful wedding. Tip #2 – Don’t treat family members and friends like your loyal subjects or servants. They especially are not around to wait on you hand and foot. They are actually the people who can take your mind off wedding planning and help you relax, go shopping and out to eat. They are also the ones who plan your engagement party, bridal shower and bachelorette party so be nice! Tip #3 – Let’s get a grip here! A wedding is but one event in your life-and it is THE DAY to be the most gracious hostess you can be. It’s your job to plan your wedding with civility and kindness. It not...

Wedding Gift Etiquette

6 Sensational Tips about Wedding Gift Etiquette Today’s weddings involve more celebrations than just a ceremony and reception, and for that reason it’s best to know the rules. 1. Engagement Party – Never, never send a printed engagement announcement. The implication? Send a gift! Instead, write a personal note to relatives and close friends with your good news. 2.  Registry – Contrary to popular belief, guests are not obligated to extend gifts to the bride- and groom-to-be at engagement parties, although many do. Never include registry information with an invitation to an engagement party but if you’re lucky enough to receive gifts, send thank-you notes within three weeks of receiving those gifts. 3. Bridal Shower – Showers are gift giving occasions, but registry information should not be included in invitations to a shower (although we know many of you will). Shower gifts should be small, personal and not break the bank. Send thank-you notes within three weeks of receiving your shower gifts.  Never have more than three showers and remember: Guests who attend multiple showers are only obligated to give one gift to the bride. 4. The Wedding – The wedding invitation asks one thing of your guests, the honour of their presence (and that’s NOT spelled P-R-E-S-E-N-T-S!). For that reason, registry information is never included in a wedding invitation. Don’t forget that guests are completely within their “etiquette rights” to send a gift within one year of the wedding date. 5. Gifts FROM the Bride & Groom – Don’t forget the person who hosts your Engagement Party, Shower, Bachelorette/Bachelor, should receive a handwritten note and a gift from...
