Weddings and Gifts, 2019
Background: "In today's modern world, weddings - and the traditions around them - are changing and evolving. Wedding etiquette has shifted along with the changing times in order to meet the needs of today's digitally savvy couples. I recommend using Zelle® because it’s a fast, safe and easy way for the couple, the family, the guests and the bridal party to send and receive funds associated with everything from gifting and group travel to pre-wedding events - turning what used to be a hassle (and an etiquette headache!) into happiness for the couple on their big day and beyond." – Elaine Swann, Etiquette Expert
