Forget your preconceived notions of old-fashioned bridal etiquette. This is a wonderful reference and quite a good read for any bride who is planning a wedding. As the mother of the bride, I bought this book after hearing a rave review from a fellow shopper while in a B&N retail store. My daugther immediately snagged this book from me because it is loaded with practical advice about everything involving wedding planning. The book answers questions we didn't realize we had. For example, ever wonder how old is too old for a flower girl? Do you know what do do about feeding the officiant and the musicians working your wedding? There is useful information on every page of this book. I think I will need to buy a second copy because I will never see my original copy again.

In the cacophony of wedding planning & etiquette books, "Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette" rises above the noise to provide a concise & helpful guide for planning your big day. As a bride-to-be who is overwhelmed with the sheer number of options and details that have become "essential" in a modern day wedding, this book has helped to cut through the BS and plainly lay out what is necessary, what is nice to have, and what is a waste of time and money. Chapters about family, finances, and legal considerations have started conversations that I otherwise might not have had with my fiancee for months or possibly years. If you are looking for a definitive guide to outline the do's and don'ts of wedding planning, this is it.

I found this book to be very helpful. I'm pretty clueless about this wedding planning stuff, and reading the book calmed me down in a way and helped me to focus. You don't have to do everything they tell you, of course, but I think the book gives good advice.

I used this book as a 'wedding bible' -- it got me through all of the stages of my wedding, from showers and invitations to the ceremony itself to thank you letters. It made my responsibilities as a bride much more organized!
