9780393069143: Miss Manners' Guide to a Surprisingly Dignified Wedding

Bride and mother-of-the-bride rebel against today’s monster weddings and explain how weddings can be charming, affordable―and excruciatingly correct.

Today’s brides are bombarded with wedding advice that promises perfection but urges achieving it through selfishness (“It’s your wedding, and you can do whatever you like”), greed (choosing the presents that guests are directed to buy), and showing off (“This is your chance to show everyone what you’re about”). Couples wishing to resist such pressure see elopement or a slapdash wedding as the only alternatives to a gaudy blowout. But none of these choices appealed to a bride who happened to have been brought up by Miss Manners. Judith Martin and her newlywed daughter, Jacobina, explain how to have a dignified ceremony and delightful celebration without succumbing to the now-prevalent pattern of the vulgar, money-draining wedding that exhausts families and exploits friends. 6 illustrations

About the Author :

Jacobina Martin teaches improvisational comedy at Chicago’s Second City and just married Ronald Kroll.

Judith Martin, born a perfect lady in an imperfect society, is the author of the “Miss Manners” columns and best-selling books, two novels, and a travel book on Venice. She and her husband live in Washington, DC.

From Booklist :

How to insert humor into the often deadly dull prose that details wedding niceties? Ask Miss Manners’ daughter to coauthor the collection of advice; Chicago improvisational teacher Jacobina, along with her mom-author (Miss Manners’ Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior, 1979) Judith, writes a disarmingly dry yet wonderfully funny account of the dos and don’ts for getting married. Every conceivable subject gets its space, including the absolutely right (and wrong) proposal, avoiding the “bridezilla” factor, coping with invitations, chief responsibilities of the parties in the wedding, and the three terrible ideas: weddings as (choose one) “my day,” fund-raiser, or show biz. A question-and-answer format usually follows each major block of content; it’s here where the authors let loose their humor. An amuse-bouche that, despite its humor, provides more than a dollop of great common sense. --Barbara Jacobs
