9781584796497: Simple Stunning Wedding Etiquette: Traditions, Answers, and Advice from One of Today's Top Wedding Planners

What’s the preferred way of wording your invitation? How should guests at the wedding dinner be seated? What do you say to people who ask to bring their (uninvited) children to the reception―or, scarier still, to your prospective mother-in-law when she picks out the World’s Ugliest Dress to wear on your big day?

Brides-to-be have a lot on their minds, including making sure that everything connected with the wedding is done the “right way.” But nowadays few people are adequately schooled in the do’s and don’ts of proper etiquette―and that’s where Simple Stunning Wedding Etiquette comes to the desperately needed rescue.

This newest volume in Karen Bussen’s Simple Stunning Wedding series―whose four previous books total more than 130,000 copies in print―is the perfect marriage between the timeless and the new. Bussen celebrates the beloved rituals (cake-cutting, toasts) that are well worth preserving, while dispensing with outmoded rites (the garter toss) best left by the wayside. And Bussen’s guide goes beyond other wedding etiquette handbooks by dealing sensitively with the sometimes-fraught issues (divorced parents, second marriages, blending religious traditions) so crucial to contemporary wedding planning.

Book Description Stewart, Tabori Chang Inc, United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Doing things the right way is tops on every bride s mind at this most important celebration, but nowadays we don t grow up learning the art of how to word an invitation or how to seat guests at a formal party. Simple Stunning Wedding Etiquette will focus on everything you really need to know, but skip the stuff you don t, such as how to dress properly for a white tie affair (it will never happen). Instead, Karen Bussen will spend time on the important things such as how to word invitations properly and how to put together a ceremony program. She ll talk about what traditions might be best left by the wayside (garter toss, anyone?) and which are really sweet moments (cake cutting and toasts, for example). Karen will include lots of lists, sidebars, and bullet points offering guidance on how to handle sticky situations, such as people asking to bring dates or their kids to the wedding when you haven t invited them.Also discussed will be how to incorporate mixed cultural and religious traditions for both the ceremony and the reception, and guidelines for how to think about everything from menus to seating to special needs. It will be a simple, more practical primer on etiquette for the modern bride who wants to be timelessly stylish yet has to contend with a new set of criteria; changing family configurations (divorced parents, second marriages, children, etc); gift registry; blending cultural traditions; and many other issues that impact the way we celebrate today.
