Contact neighbors

I am hosting a wedding with a DJ playing, Saturday in September at 5pm until 11:30pm
My question is should i send a letter to my neighbors informing them of this. We do entertain frequently and have never had issues with any of them before.

Being Neighborly
by: Ms P Etiquette

Hello Dena~

Good manners dictate that we always inform our neighbors when having a large and/or potentially noisy gathering.

There are several reasons for this. First and most importantly, any extra traffic or parking will affect your neighbors, sometimes adversely. Also letting them know well in advance keeps them from the embarrassment of having a large party at their residence on the same date. But a heads up on activity that could potentially cause inconvenience in the neighborhood is always good manners.

I think a handwritten note to each close neighbor is the best way to handle this. Respect and empathy are the hallmarks of good etiquette.

Thank you for this relevant question.
