When Is It OK to Blow Off Weddings, Funerals, and Other Major Milestones?
When you are deciding whether or not to cancel on a major event, you should always try to be courteous. Try to be realistic about which ones you can attend. Use the event itself’s importance to help determine, as well as how close you are to the host. Don’t put off RSVPing to the last minute and when you do, make sure to be regretful but brief. Lastly make sure you send a gift to soften the blow, if appropriate.
