rsvp for informal alternative reception?
Mandi in Etiquette and Advice, on September 10, 2020 at 2:01 AM

Is an RSVP too formal for an informal alternative reception. Due to COVID some people are being invited to the virtual ceremony instead of in person. Were having an open yard/drive up party the next...

No Mask, No Come.
Mandi in Etiquette and Advice, on July 10, 2020 at 11:16 PM

Mandi in Etiquette and Advice, on July 6, 2020 at 2:20 AM

As we get closer to our second wedding, I have a ton of questions. Who do we invite (again), and who can we cut? Let's be honest. We invited some people because they were family and we had to. We knew...
