Who hosts the engagement party? Which of your guests should be invited with a “plus one” to the big day? How long do I have to send out thank you notes? When planning a wedding there are so many details to cover, and you want to make sure to be considerate of all your guests and family. Myka Meier, the modern-day Emily Post, is the evening’s guest speaker who can answer all of your grittiest wedding etiquette quandaries.
