Wedding Etiquette – Broken Engagements

If an engagement is broken, any wedding gifts received should be returned to the sender with a brief note of explanation.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Smith,

I regretfully inform you my engagement to Brian Adams has been broken.  I am returning the china place setting you were so thoughtful to send.


Elizabeth Jones

The wedding ring should also be returned to the groom.
