Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette, 6th Edition
Today's weddings are a beautiful blend of traditions, reflecting what matters most to each couple. They are also more complicated than ever, with new customs replacing old, new technologies to help plan and communicate, and new relationships to consider as familes grow more complex. But while weddings evolve, one thing has remained constant: A wedding is one of the most special days in a person's life. Surrounded by friends and family, it is a day for everyone to celebrate.
The Emily Post Institute has been answering etiquette questions for more than 90 years, and Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette, 6th edition, written by Emily Post's great-great-granddaughters, Anna Post and Lizzie Post, will provide you with everything you need to know from past traditions to modern updates so you can approach your wedding with grace and ease. After all, etiquette is about treating people with consideration, respect, and honesty—attitudes that will help you to set the tone for the perfect day.
This updated and expanded sixth edition includes every detail a couple needs to navigate the planning process, reduce stress, and maximize fun on their extraordinary day.
