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."
