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.
