Ultimate rules of wedding etiquette

Every person wants her wedding to be the most memorable event. So much so, that the wedding ceremony should remain etched into the mind of the guests for decades. Not all of us however have that kind of planning mindset and neither endless supply of money. To go searching for wedding planners is sure to expand your total budget as they don’t come cheap in the United States. So in between creating a total chaos at the most important event of your life and spending a fortune just at the preparations, what can an average woman do to improve the situation?

We can all agree that spending sleepless nights worrying about making unacceptable blunders on your big day would not help matters much. What you can do is ask your elders for advice and suggestions and if you are not the listening type and don’t like other people meddling in your business then you can always rely upon reading. We would not suggest you to read large volumes on the subject, as your wedding would be near, but we would surely ask you to go over as many blogs and websites as you can to be reminded of what to expect and more importantly, what not to expect on the big day.

Here are some tips that would cover up the basics of the Wedding etiquettes. The points described would be self-explanatory and concisely written to save your time and energy.

Etiquette for the wedding hosts

  • Be fair: Invite everyone from your distant family and no one should be left out. If there is someone who is going to remind you for your entire life about how you did not invite them on your wedding are the distant aunts. Yes, they meddle too much, but on the bright side, they might bring some good gifts.


  • Better safe than sorry: Jot down the tasks to be done. It might mean running around the field with a notepad in your hand, but on the contrary, you will get everything done without forgetting anything major. If you think it is too much fuss to write everything down, let your young cousins do it. They are always eager to contribute in a wedding and can be dictated to write the tasks down.


  • A friend in need is a friend indeed: Assign tasks to your best friends, relatives and neighbors. They not only would be able to take some load off your shoulders, but having been close to you would understand your needs and wants better. They will also be more willing to help due to your importance to them.


  • Don’t leave any questions: Let your invitation cards be simple and explanatory. With the heap of tasks you do not want a big part of your invited guests to keep calling and asking you the exact time, the venue or the RSVP for the wedding.


  • Forewarned is forearmed: Ask your friends to keep patrolling the tables to report if they see anything amiss. Reach the trouble before it reaches you, with some luck you may be able to hush down an embarrassing situation and take control before anyone smells the fishy business.


  • Let the guests enjoy: Give your guests an option to bring along another person if they like. Even if there are too many guests for the host party to cover completely with respect to entertaining the people they have bought with themselves can do that job for you preventing your guests from getting bored.


  • That winning smile: Be good natured to your guests and provide them with tasty if simple refreshments. Don’t answer back to the people who want to spread negativity in your life, your energy would be far better consumed in enjoying your party.


  • Make it traditional: Don’t print the names of your guests but rather write it yourself. It makes the invitee feel you are special to them and you have put in an effort to remember and invite them.


  • Don’t forget yourself: Don’t miss out the four corners of your preparation; your clothes, makeup, Guests and food. As the last hope of the sinking ship, remember to not forget yourself amidst the worries of the preparations as long as the bride and groom look exquisite people may forget other less important incidents.

Etiquette for the wedding guests

Many of us in this modern era of socialization are quite unaware of what others expect from us especially on the events like marriage. If you are one those introvert group of people who unknowingly slack a bit when it comes to socializing here are some tips for you:

  • Respect the card: By respecting the card it does not mean you are not to tear it even after the wedding, but rather respect the timings given and arrive in time, respect the number of people invited and don’t take too many people along.
  • Responding to invitations: Whether you decide to go to the wedding you are invited to or not, you need to write the couple telling them you cannot make It. It not only saves their cost, allows them to have a good approximation on the number of guests but also lets them have the impression that you took out time to at least inform them about not being able to attend even if you can’t make it to the wedding.


  • Going uninvited: Don’t go to an uninvited wedding unless you receive a card. Although you would say that this tip is very obvious to all there are still many around us who consider their friends to be too close for such formalities such as invitation card.


  • Send gifts even if you can’t attend: Not attending is no excuse for not having to send your regards at least in the form of gifts. It makes the married couple feel that you have neither avoided them, nor ignored, but you are not there because of a genuine excuse and have sent a gift instead.


  • Don’t criticize: Even if you don’t like the bride’s dress or the food you eat it is extremely impolite to say it out aloud. It influences the opinion of those around you as well and hurts the hosts too.

Beatboxing is a type of vocal percussion. Some of the time the term is restricted to a specific style of vocal percussion associated with the musical type of hip jump, however at different times it is utilized all the more extensively. It plainly does not have any significant bearing to conventions of vocal percussion that are established in nations other than the United States.

Beatboxing might incorporate body percussion and in addition vocal percussion, contingent upon which definition one passes by. In any case, Human Beatbox characterizes beatboxing as “the craft of creating rhythms, mood, and musical sounds utilizing one’s mouth, lips, tongue, voice, nasal section and throat.”

The substance of beatboxing bases on an arrangement of sounds that are imitative of particular drumset sounds. The three center sounds are thought to be the kick drum, the bass drum of the drumset; the catch drum, the unsupported drum that can be played with catches on or off; and the shut hello cap cymbal, played with the foot pedal or tapped with a stick or brush.

Every instrument is connected to one or more vocalizations. The kick drum is spoken to as/b/. The shut hello cap as/t/and the open hey cap as/ts/, and the catch drum then again as/pf/,/psh/or/ps/. By consolidating these sounds in examples and rehashing the examples relentlessly one can mirror a fundamental drumset groove.

Shortcuts and icons missing pictures (images) or blank

Here are two possible fixes I’ve come across on the internet:

  1. Just refresh the icon cache by deleting the IconCache.db file from your profile directory (usually /Documents and Settings/Username/Local Settings/Application Data). It will be automatically recreated.


  1. go into Display Properties under the Appearance tab. From the Item drop-down list, choose Icon.
  2. Click the up arrow in the Size box to increase it one size. Click Apply.
  3. Click the down arrow in the Size box to return the icons to their previous size. Apply.

Adobe Flash Player ActiveX for IE install problem on XP SP2

Although Adobe has their own page for troubleshooting this issue (see below), they did not work for me.

After some troubleshooting this is what worked for me…

While trying to install adobe flash player activeX for Internet explorer (any version), the installer and/or uninstaller hangs when extracting files from the package downloaded from adobe.

The installer would hang at “extracting files to c:\windows\system32\macrod\xxx”

For some odd reason by terminating a process with a .TMP extension allowed the installer to complete.

The same may work with the uninstaller problem.



Some other tips that have worked for others:


SIDE NOT: on one machine there was major HD activity but the installations finally finished but took 10 min

Application icons missing from taskbar when minimized

This seems to work quite well. Always backup your registry anyways.

Kill explorer.exe and iexplorer.exe processes,

Then run regedit.exe

Delete these three keys.


WS_FTP – “Never!” error when launching WS_FTP 2006/2007

Question/Problem: When I launch WS_FTP (Home or Pro) a small window pops up. Inside is a yellow triangle with the word “Never!”. After clicking ok a few times the error disappears but WS_FTP does not run.


If the WS_FTP Pro splash screen will not go away, end-task the “wsftpgui.exe” process in the task manager (or just reboot the system).

Browse to the following directory:

C:\Program Files\Ipswitch\WS_FTP Professional

(Isome cases, the default installation directory is:
C:\Program Files\WS_FTP Professional)

Delete the file named psapi.dll

*** Please note: Only delete this file if it is in the WS_FTP Professional directory. Do NOT delete it from any other directory especially Windows or System32. ***

Midphase Hosting SUCKS!


Throughout my years designing and supporting web design clients, I have been through many hosting companies. Accuburst was the first and after a year they completely vanished into thin air. Host excellence has been pretty good to me as well as Host Gator. However, the majority of my clients are on MIDPHASE due to my recommendation. Their support is great and I have been with them for several years. However, it seems like they are trying to grow too fast from their humble beginnings. I noticed huge ad campaigns and extremely crazy sounding deals…which brings me to the point. They recently came out (for a short while) with an “UNLIIMTED PLAN” that included unlimited disk space, transfer, and hosted domains. This seemed too good to be true for $7.95 a month. Alas it was…I signed up 3 clients with them and they are all on the same server and the sites have been down over and over again…EVERDAY.

Today, it has been down for over 12 hours and counting. Speaking and emailing support has not helped. I’ve even requested the site to be moved to another server and it still hasn’t been initiated  when I was promised “immedidate” help.

They have this status blog http://status.midphase.com

and read the log that describes my situation! What morons. It does not take 12+ hours to replace a drive in a RAID setup.  I have requested them to move all 3 of my clients to other midphase servers…but after this incident they are not getting new business from me!

esc122.midphase.com :: Failed Drive

By Chris Place | October 16, 2008 @ 10:25 am

We are currently working to replace a failed drive in the RAID array of esc122.midphase.com. This is a fairly simple procedure, but it will take some time to correct. We will update this post as more information becomes available.

::Update 6:00pm CST:: The server is currently undergoing a FSCK ( file system check) to ensure the integrity of the data. Once this is complete all accounts will be brought back live.  Unfortunately we do not have a ETA for this process to complete.

Hiding (Cloaking) your email address from spam bots

Unfortunately, in this digital age, spam is everywhere and almost impossible to avoid. Using major players like hotmail, gmail, yahoo can help since they have decent spam filtering. However, good email will once in a while make its way in there as well.  Now where do the spammers find your email address? Well there are a multitude of ways that range of someone infected with malware/spyware that has you in their contacts (address book) to making your email address public via a blog, forum, etc;

If you have your own website (business or personal) and need to have your email address displayed for some reason – perhaps under your contact us page – the best way to protect yourself from spam bots AND still have a click-able mail-to: link is to cloak your email address. This is mostly done through converting your email address into ASCII characters or using JavaScript. The latter is much more effective.

Even with a simple ASCII conversion, I have tested several email addresses and they have not collected any spam in months. However, the  JavaScript method should be even more effective.

Here is a link to a GREAT FREE TOOL that will do all that for you at a click of the mouse.


Web Email Cloaker is a simple utility for webmasters to beat the spam-spiders by cloaking email contact information in obfuscated or complex JavaScript code. Web Email Cloaker uses multiple methods of cloaking together to create email contact code that displays correctly but is utterly unreadable by email-hunting spam robots.


Senseless voice mail greetings and “Please Advise” retards

All to often I call another business professional and hear the same voice mail message,

“Hi, you have reached Mr. Smith. I am unable to pick up the phone right now. Please leave your name, phone number, and a brief message and I will get back to you at MY EARLIEST CONVENIENCE. Thank you.”

First of all it’s a generic message, which is OK and standard. However, what’s up with the “MY EARLIEST CONVENIENCE”? Unless your a rock star and people worship you, shouldn’t you just say that you will get back to them “AS SOON AS POSSIBLE” ? This is one of those things that get tossed around in the corporate world and become a standard, even though it’s senseless. The same goes for the word “advise”. Have you ever received an email from someone with a problem and at the end they say “Please advise”? Another senseless statement. Google it, it’s annoying to everyone! This guy even made a SHIRT for it.
