Covering such wedding staples as attendants, invitations, registries, showers, the ceremony, the reception, and thank yous, Etiquette guru Jeanne Hamilton will give numerous examples of bad etiquette that should be avoided at all costs, such as:
-No bride owns the calendar. Insisting that everyone within your acquaintance had not dare schedule their wedding anywhere within a six month time period labels you as a classic Bridezilla.
-Sponsored wedding, at which vendors who donate their services are offered the opportunity to put their logos on various wedding related paper products.
-It is never wise to make bridesmaid offers while in the grip of fluttery, just-engaged emotions. You may have to rescind those offers later when you realize you were just a bit too hasty. Once having made the offer, it is extraordinarily ungracious to rescind it, unless you want a seething friend or sister using your engagement photo as a dartboard.
-Enclosing a blank deposit form for a bank account bearing the names of the bride and the groom with the invitation.
And much more! This is a hilarious exploration of how weddings can literally drive people mad.

About the Author:

JEANNE HAMILTON is a wedding consultant and the creator of www.EtiquetteHell.com, which has been featured in prominent publications like USA Today, People, and Wall Street Journal. She lives in Oxford, North Carolina.

From Publishers Weekly:

Rather than lecture couples about what they should do before, during and after the Big Day, consultant Hamilton (Bridezilla: True Stories from Etiquette Hell) warns them what not to do in this quick, easy guide to modern-day manners. Hamiliton runs through a list of nuptial no-nos, from invitations and bridal showers to receptions and the like. She provides pages of horror stories culled from www.etiquettehell.com, the Web site she started in 1997. Hamilton scoffs, for example, at the bride and groom who tried to solicit sponsors for their wedding in exchange for "signage at the reception venue." She shakes her head at the pair who took their registry "to a new low in greed" when they offered guests chances to pay for specific parts of their honeymoon in Hawaii-the airfare, the housing, the meals and activities. And she reprimands the couple audacious enough to send announcements a full year after the event, telling friends and relatives not invited to the wedding that they can "honor the union" with "contributions to the home purchasing fund." Tacky and rude, these instances of extreme faux pas make for amusing reading. Hamilton's discussion is slightly hampered, however, by occasional fictional asides. Meant to give further insight on the planning process, the fictional conversations between a generic "Brideweena" and etiquette expert "Miss Jeanne" are distracting instead. They add little to the overall project, a book some people-particularly those who revel in others' social blunders-will find infinitely fascinating.
