Q: What do I do if a check from a wedding guest bounces?

A: Don't mention it. Eventually, the bank will notify your guest, who will likely mail you another check immediately (and may call to apologize). Hold off writing a thank-you until the new check arrives; in your thank-you note, avoid any mention of the problem.
