5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Single-Source Wedding Book 13 Mar 2002
By njbookworm - Published on Amazon.com
If you only plan on buying *one* wedding guide book, this should be it.
Peggy Post addresses almost every aspect of wedding etiquette in this hefty book. Although you can find most of this information on Internet sites, Peggy Post does a fantastic job of compiling wedding information in one easy-to-use volume.
Book highlights include:
- Exhaustively Thorough Invitation Section
(Example: Outlines specific language you should use if the bride's divorced/remarried parents are jointly hosting the wedding.)
- Engagement Outline
(Example: Gives recommendations for who the happy couple should tell, when, & how.)
- Guest Information
(Example: Discusses gift giving, response cards, etc.)
Peggy Post does an excellent job of conveying information without sounding preachy. She offers recommendations instead of barking standards.
In addition to being a great planning tool, this book is also quite lovely! As such, it would make a beautiful engagement gift.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and Most Practical 5 Dec 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I had read an older version of the Emily Post that was in our library. I reluctantly borrowed this the 2001 one from a friend. I learned so much that I decided I couldnt live without my own. There was so much more practical attention to the diversity of ceremony styles and one of the few books that appreciated that not all people have parents paying megabucks and planning their wedding. I loved the expanded advice for reception and apparell and having kids tables-definately plan on using that idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful and incredibly detailed 15 Jun 2003
By "resendesandrea" - Published on Amazon.com
I decided to get this book because I was struggling with how to make wedding decisions that would potentially upset some people, like not having kids be invited. I was surprised when the book arrived at how thick it is, there is really a wealth of information in it. I like that she gives both a traditional and contemporary view on certain topics, and the sections are clearly marked so its not as though you have to read it from beginning to end to find what you are looking for. I think this book can be helpful even if you're not facing and etiquette dilemma, it makes you think of things you hadn't even thought of. Its also really clearly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable 1 July 2003
By SIGARM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An invaluable book to avoid potential wedding/social faux pas. Has guidance from invitations to thank you letters and everything in between. If you're wanting more value for the money, I would suggest "Emily Post's Etiquette (16th Edition or latest)" as it covers wedding (albeit not as detailed), social and business etiquette areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only wedding book you'll need! 8 Oct 2004
By Jennifer A. Kern - Published on Amazon.com
This books takes the place of so many other books out there, like guides to writing thank yous, guides about religious traditions, what to wear. This book has it all. You're getting about 15 books for the price of one. Emily Post's Wedding Etuiquette guides you from announcing your engagement to friends and family all the way through writing Thank you's and everything in between. It's an invaluable guide for the bride, the groom, the bridal party and even the guests at a wedding! Have you ever wondered how much to give for a wedding? What to wear for a daytime formal wedding? What order to use for the processional? How do you write out an invitation for a same sex couple? What is the appropriate way to write out Thank yous? All of these questions and many more are answered in this thorough, sensible book. It's a great read and very well organized so you will be able to find anything you need. It is a great gift for the bride and groom because its timelines can also be used as a planner. It's also a great gift for the bridal party or parents of the bride because it outlines all of those responsibilities as well. This may very well be the only wedding book you'll ever need, whether you're the bride, the groom, the father of the bride, the maid of honor, or just a guest!
