Etiquette of the modern woman of
Today very few people conform to the strict rules of classical etiquette. In the woman naturalness, than faultless manners is more appreciated. But it does not mean that it is possible to forget about rules of etiquette absolutely.
In the 21st century the main requirement to clothes are a convenience. Whether to go to office in tops with open shoulders, and to receptions in jeans? By and large, the decision depends on you. But, choosing clothes which are pleasant to you, do not forget about relevance of a dress. Yes, your convenience first of all. But you should not shock surrounding with the appearance too.
If you were invited on a visit
- Accept the invitation or politely refuse in advance. Certainly, emergency situations it is not counted, but to delay the answer to the last day impolitely: the hostess has to know how many guests to her will come.
- If you want to bring someone for a holiday (whether it be the child or the close friend), ask in advance whether it will be convenient.
- If you adhere to vegetarianism, fast or for health reasons some products are contraindicated to you, warn about it the hostess. But if you keep to a diet, be content with what is on a table. The diet is not considered a good reason to suggest the hostess to consider your addictions.
- you Watch alcohol. The guest who touched and cannot control himself, absolutely unnecessary burden for owners.
- thank owners for fine reception Next day. There passed those times when the etiquette demanded the message handwritten. Today there is enough call or letter by e-mail.
If you invite guests
- If you arrange a solemn holiday, but not simple tea drinking with girlfriends, invite guests in advance. So they will be able to plan the time, and you will see at yourself all whom you want.
- If the party has a certain occasion, warn about it all guests. If you celebrate a wedding anniversary, but not all about it were told, having counted that friends will remember, you put in an awkward situation of those at whom the memorial simply took off from the head. All edible gifts and drinks which were brought by guests needs to be exposed to
- on a table. Regardless of that how many wine you bought and how many cakes baked. do not give to
- on a table products which caused scandal recently. Char-grilled chicken at the height of bird flu will be pleasant to not everyone. If you arrange to
- a holiday during a post, learn from guests whether they fast, and take care of that on a table there were corresponding dishes.
- If during preparation for a holiday you were nervous and that often happens, squabbled with the spouse, do not continue to sort out the relations at guests. They should not know about stumbling blocks in your family.
- If next day you received by e-mail official messages of thanks from guests, do not turn correspondence into an exchange of courtesies, infinite and tiresome for all. But, if guests came to you with gifts, it will be polite to thank them once again after a while. (“I put on your sweater today, and in it it was very warm and cozy!“ )
If women are engaged in strength sports today, operate corporations and are a part of the government, it does not mean that traditional man`s signs / attention need to be abolished. If the man helps you to put on a coat, I it says not that he considers you insufficiently strong and bright, and that it is brought well up. And here the active feminist who begins to be indignant loudly if the man opened before her a door, looks just ridiculously.
