Guest Etiquette


Please RSVP in a timely fashion, whether through mail or via email. Remember the invitation has an rsvp deadline for a reason, plus you wouldn’t want to miss out a great party would you?

Don’t ask to bring other people

If you receive an invitation for one, chances are it wasn’t a mistake. With the economy the way it is a lot of people are cutting back and unfortunately they cannot invite everyone they would like to. Don’t take it personal, be thankful and prepare to have a great time!

Dress Accordingly

If you are unsure of the attire it doesn’t hurt to ask the host or hostess to get clarification and FYI you can never go wrong with a little black dress ;)

Be on time

With an event like a wedding or corporate party the rule of being fashionably late goes out the window. Keep in mind that there is a schedule that needs to be kept, and having guest arrive late is a huge interruption. Plus let’s be honest, do you really want to be the person on the receiving end of a nasty stare because you came in late?…I didn’t think so LOL.

Thank the host

After all the food and drinks have been served, and you danced your heart out and took tons of pictures to download on Facebook, you realized you had an amazing time. Now is the time to let your host know how much fun you had. You can send a handwritten note through the mail, give them a call or send them a quick email just to say “thanks for a great time, can’t wait till the next event!”
