Southerners are known for warming hospitality, delightful charm, and of course, proper etiquette. In Dixie, regardless of what event you’re hosting, it’s important to have good manners and polite protocol. Funerals are absolutely no exception to this rule. Join etiquette masters Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays, authors of Being Dead Is No Excuse, Somebody Is Going To Die If Lilly Beth Doesn't Catch That Bouquet, and Some Day You'll Thank Me For This as they outline everything you need to know about funeral etiquette. As Gayden says, “Always remember, you can have as many weddings as you want, but you only get to have one funeral.” Lengthy obituaries, using paper products at the reception, and themed coffins are just a few of the etiquette gurus’ biggest pet peeves. They answered all of our burning funeral etiquette questions. What’s considered appropriate attire? Who’s in charge of the kitchen? Which foods should be served? Is it polite to attend the visitation, service, burial, memorial, and reception? After all, no one dies better than a Southerner.
