You may be planning a totally laid back wedding on the beach, surrounded by a few close friends and family members, followed by an informal clambake "reception." Surprisingly, in spite of the relaxed setting and casual ceremony, if you want to avoid hurt feelings and damaged relationships, certain rules of etiquette must still be followed. For example:

  • When you become engaged, which parents should be told first?
  • How do you choose an honor attendant when you can't decide between your sister and your best friend?
  • If your parents are involved in a bitter divorce and can't stand to be in the same room at the same time, should you invite both parents to your wedding?


This book includes advice for every aspect of the wedding-from the engagement period, the budget, and pre-wedding festivities to the legalities, the rehearsal, and, of course, the ceremony and reception. It also includes practical advice for second-time brides who want to include their children in the ceremony and for those couples wrestling with the pros and cons of prenuptial agreements.
