Life’s Little Etiquette Conundrums
I’m graduating from college next month with a degree in arts. It might seem like a minor achievement, but due to many obstacles, it took a long time to attain. I’m planning a celebration, but I’m unsure about sending announcements to a few estranged relatives. I don’t wish to see them at the party, and I don’t want to appear as if I want a gift, but I would like them to know of my accomplishment. To some extent, they helped me along the way, and I am grateful. How should I proceed?
Well, good for you, graduate! Not only did you earn the diploma, but you’re remembering those who helped you. That right there is something to celebrate. Work up two announcements: one for the partying friends and another for those you wish to thank. They will appreciate it. Promise.
