Emily Post's Great-Granddaughter Talks Wedding Etiquette
Post, in a fabulously ladylike (and appropriate, natch) black pencil shirt, cranberry silk top, and round-toe suede pumps, greeted admirers and fielded questions: Is it appropriate to ask for money in lieu of gifts? (Actually, yes!) What does she think of invitation services such as Evite.com? (Great for all occasions except weddings.)
Guests, brides-to-be, and a smattering of men sipped Champagne and sampled mini-cupcakes from Bethesda’s Just Cakes. Chef Stephen Scholz knew just what to say to the women eyeing his confections: “They’re little, which means they don’t have any calories.”
Sometimes a little white lie is the most appropriate thing after all.
