Engagement Card

by Mrs. Donkin

My son and his girlfriend have just announced there engagement. I have gotten them an engagement congratulations card but am unsure how to sign it, do I put from mam and dad even though I'm not his girlfriend's mam.

Engagement Card
by: Ms P Etiquette

Dear Mrs. Donkin,

Your signature should reflect your own personal feelings and your relationship with your daughter in law to be. If she calls you by your given name now, you may wish to sign the card that way. This is usually the most comfortable choice for an engagement card. However, if she is already referring to you as a parent, then follow her lead.

Congratulations to all of you!

Ms. Practical Etiquette
