Is there a correct time for the length of an engagement? Where do divorced and remarried parents sit at the ceremony and at the reception? May a bride who's been married before wear white?

In this fully revised and updated edition, Peggy provides expert advice on contemporary issues including multicultural ceremonies, extended families, theme and destination weddings, the revival of old customs, and much more. Full of ideas for adding personal touches to your ceremony,Emily Post's Weddingswill help you create a unique and special event that you and your guests will never forget.
"You are at one of the most joyous milestones in your life. While stress may accompany both the big decisions and the little details, it shouldn't interfere with the sense of adventure and fun as you prepare to celebrate your love and share your joy. " Peggy Post

Born in Washington, D. C., Peggy was raised in the Maryland suburbs of Washington and New Orleans, Louisiana, and graduated from Louisiana State University. She has worked for Chemical Bank and Merrill Lynch Relocation Management. Her positions at each of these companies required extensive public speaking, writing and traveling for business. Peggy has been married since 1979 to Allen Post, Emily Post's great-grandson, and is stepmother to Allen's two sons. Active outdoor enthusiasts, both Peggy and Allen enjoy skiing, golf and fishing.

As America's etiquette expert, Peggy has provided advice through her monthly column inGood Housekeepingand her quarterly column in Parentsmagazine, through appearances on syndicated programs includingOprahandLive with Regis and Kathie Leeand in hundreds of newspapers and radio stations across the United States.From Library Journal:
The three authors of these two very different works about marriage serve also as narrators. Peggy Post, great-granddaughter-in-law of Emily Post, achieves the greatest narration success as she counsels listeners on modern wedding planning and etiquette in a well-modulated, pleasing tone. Topics included in this comprehensive guide range from engagement etiquette to choosing a wedding style to planning a honeymoon. Because Post believes that, when it comes to weddings, "excess does not always equal success," she provides many practical, money-saving tips throughout. The Brodys, husband and wife relationship counselors, share narration duties in their work about marriage at midlife. Swapping narrators every few minutes gives the work a choppy feel and causes an overall discontinuity in the narrative. The personal experiences of the authors and composites drawn from their counseling practice illustrate problems commonly experienced by middle-aged couples. In a rather haphazard fashion, the Brodys discuss marriage challenges such as children entering school, demanding careers, love affairs, and retirement. Multiple copies of Post's work would be welcome in most public libraries; the Brodys' program is an optional purchase.ABeth Farrell, Portage Cty. Dist. Lib., OH
