    The Barnes & Noble Review
    March 2000

    As wedding season approaches, many couples and families are preparing for the biggest event in their lives. Questions are sure to abound, especially since large, traditional weddings have become less common, and couples are looking for a more contemporary way to enter and celebrate the institution of marriage.

    Deciding what is appropriate is more complicated today than it was 20 years ago: Rice is no longer PC because it hurts birds; the father of the bride does not always pay for the full wedding anymore; and the word "obey" has been almost completely eradicated from wedding vows. Bride's magazine has helped wedding planners with decisions about finances, religion, dresses, and more for more than 60 years, and its advice can apply to all kinds of weddings, both traditional and modern. With the publication of Bride's Book of Etiquette, brides, grooms, and their families get a collection of this advice in one package.

    In this book, Millie Martini Bratten, editor in chief of Bride's, and the other editors of the magazine have put together the dos and don'ts of planning a wedding. The book covers all kinds of obvious and inconspicuous issues, from drawing up the guest list to choosing bridesmaids, from fashion advice to prenuptial agreements and wedding costs. Anyone planning a wedding can benefit from reading the words of wisdom and advice put together by this top-notch group of wedding experts.

    This book is a must for every bride! From wedding customs to invitation rules, from bridal party roles to wedding clothes, I really learned a lot. This book helped me and my fiance as we plan our October wedding. We do as much as we can ourselves to meet our budget (printing invitations, addressing the envelopes, creating our programs, making our own favors, ideas for bouquets, cakes, dresses, etc) so we wanted a check-list and rule book. Bride's Book of Etiquette has it all!

    I loved learning about all the different cultural wedding traditions. You can take a little tradition from each culture and put it in your own unique wedding! The information in the book is up to date, and also completely explains how to handle tricky situations such as divorced parents, selecting your attendants without hurting feelings, etc. A MUST HAVE for any BRIDE TO BE like myself! ENJOY!
