Overview

If you consult Miss Manners expecting to get a tea-and-biscuit sort of answer, forget about it. Judith Martin, a.k.a. Miss Manners, kicks some serious etiquette butt in her new book Miss Manners on Weddings . No serious book on etiquette is written with as much truth or humor as this book filled with tips on everything—and I do mean everything—pertaining to weddings.

One letter from a gentle reader asked Miss Manners about a guest's request to bring a monkey, which was being trained to help care for a paraplegic, to the wedding. No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. They wanted to bring a monkey, and the bride's parents were outraged. Miss Manners was a bit perplexed by this as well, advising the letter writer that only trained assistance animals such as seeing-eye dogs are appropriate. With typical sharp humor, she says to try this line, "We are so sorry that we can't have your darling monkey, who would undoubtedly behave beautifully, but we feel we just can't make an exception because other people might want to bring theirs, who might not behave as well."

Miss Manners also tackles more serious etiquette—the engagement, the shower, the guest list, the invitation, and so on. It's not the topics but what she says that makes this book a stand-out. She advises brides to never invite people "with guest" unless they know the "guest" or the guest is in a well-established relationship. She reminds a bride not to fret about who will give the shower (certainly not a family member), or what her mother and the bridegroom's mother will be wearing, or why the groom is not showing an interest in whether yellow or chocolate cake is chosen. There are questions fromgentle readers throughout, and Miss Manners always has a snappy, accurate response. From stepparents to adoptive parents to dead parents, from phrasing invitations to handwriting invitations to declining invitations, Miss Manners on Weddings will transform even the most uncouth bride—and her family—into a manners expert.

    The only wedding book you'll ever need

    This book should be mandatory reading for every bride (and anyone else involved in a wedding). It is filled with absolutely everything one would need to know about weddings. Judith Martin's charming wit makes this a fast and enjoyable read. But more importantly, it is the definitive word on weddings. If you want to do it right, get this book!

    If only every bride would read this

    How many times have we been subjected to a pouty bride stamping her little white foot because it's 'her day', or worse yet, wedding invitations with lists of suggested gifts or 'just send money' instructions? This book talks common sense about not letting a wedding, which is supposed to be a joyous celebration, become a circus or a theatrical production. Miss Manners is right again!
