Each Wednesday, we tackle wedding etiquette. At times, it’s a reader question or one from a colleague, friend or family member and other times we’ll cover a popular issue. This week, we’re rounding up the top 5 wediquette questions for newly engaged couples. Christmas and New Year’s Eve are popular times for popping the question, so if you got engaged over the holidays and are getting ready to embark upon the planning process, here are a few etiquette tips to get you started.

  1. When and how to announce your engagement on social media
  2. How to introduce your parents to one another
  3. Do you have to send out save-the-date announcements?
  4. Can you invite your future in-laws to help plan the wedding?
  5. What are some of the rules for registries and gifting?
