Newly married couple ; my question pertains to gift giving. Now that I am married what is the etiquette for gift giving? Do my wife and I give gifts as a couple ? As far as my sister and I do we still combine and give gift to our parent or does my wife and I give my parent a gift ?

You and your wife shoud give gifts together, but you can still include your sister in the arrangement. Now that there are three participating in gifts for your parents, price options may increase.

It’s pretty horrifying that on the Emily Post site “Who’s” is printed in large bold type in the heading concerning parents’ names on wedding invitations. It should be “Whose”.
