Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Modern-Day Weddings with Grace and Style
Library Journal
In spite of our increasingly casual society, weddings remain steeped in etiquette and tradition. Shaw, a wedding and special events planner, presents a very formal set of rules for the wedding couple and guests, covering the engagement period, money handling, planning, attendants, guests, correspondents, and parties. Chapters includes an easy-to-read Q&A section along with a brief list of Do's and Don't's. Though some of the advice will seem outdated to some modern couples, the book does cover many contemporary situations, including divorced family members and destination weddings. Recommended for libraries needing to update or supplement material found in general wedding books or etiquette books by well-known experts like Peggy Post and Miss Manners.
