Emily Post's Classic, Indispensable, and Comprehensive Guide to Your Wedding 

Now Completely Updated and Expanded in a New Edition

Today's weddings are a beautiful blend of traditions, reflecting what matters most to each couple. They are also more complicated than ever, with new customs replacing the old, new technologies to help plan and communicate, and new relationships to consider as families grow more complex. But while weddings evolve, one thing has remained constant: A wedding is one of the most special days in a person's life. Surrounded by friends and family, it is a day for everyone to celebrate.

The Emily Post Institute has been answering etiquette questions for more than ninety years, and Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette, 6th Edition, written by Emily Post's great-great-granddaughters, Anna Post and Lizzie Post, will provide you with everything you need to know from past traditions to modern updates so you can approach your wedding with grace and ease. After all, etiquette is about treating people with consideration, respect, and honesty—attitudes that will help you to set the tone for the perfect day.

This updated and expanded sixth edition includes every detail a couple needs to navigate the planning process, reduce stress, and maximize fun on their extraordinary day. With illustrations throughout, the sixth edition is packed with inspiration, advice, and etiquette, covering everything from:

  • How to word invitations and address envelopes
  • The time line of events throughout the engagement and wedding day
  • Who to include on your guest list
  • Smart and thoughtful ways to integrate the latest technology
  • How to handle divorced parents and awkward family situations
  • Who should throw the bridal shower
  • The do's and don'ts of gifts and thank yous
  • How to schedule photography on the wedding day
  • Inspiration for blending family traditions and including elements that reflect you as a couple

With shorter, more accessible chapters, this edition also includes vital information for the groom, mother of the groom, mother and father of the bride, and every member of the wedding party.

Unmatched as a trusted resource, Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette, 6th Edition, is the go-to practical guide for the big event. From the "yes" of the proposal to the day of "I do," Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette will help you plan a wedding that is uniquely yours every step of the way.

Received very quickly as promised and in perfect condition. I have purchased a ton of wedding books to study for my daughter's upcoming, very formal wedding. This book was by FAR the best. It is my bible and I refer to it daily.

thanks!

Though I have not read everything in the book yet, I consider it a great gift or essential purchase for any newly engaged couple or bride. It starts at the very beginning and answers questions that arise throughout the wedding planning process. For me this book has guided the way that I look at situations concerning my wedding in both a traditional yet updated sense.

Just bought this book as we begin to plan our wedding. It's exactly what we need! This book walks you through the basics of planning and provides expanded resources for how to coordinate every aspect of the day with consideration for your guests, family, and selves. A great read for any couple considering getting engaged.

Also- this is very updated with a modern look on weddings and includes timely advice on budgeting (who pays), social media use, and modern wedding themes.

So happy Emily's descendants have reached out to women who still like to observe etiquette in changing times. When our son prepared for his wedding we got so many mixed messages and poor communication between her family and ours so I want to avoid as many pitfalls as possible as I plan our daughter's upcoming nuptials next year! Thank you Emily!

This book gives good guidance for wedding etiquette for the 21st century. Much has changed in the last 20-30 years about wedding etiquette, and this book keeps up with the times yet still keeps the importance of consideration for others foremost. Very helpful.

I bought this book because as a wedding planner I need to have answers for extraordinary situations. This book is a great tool for that! Even though is mostly written for brides to be, I recommend it to wedding planners as well.

I received this book as an engagement gift 11 years ago, to be honest it was a previous edition which makes me feel about 100 years old. I used it so much during my wedding planning that my family, friends, and I lovingly refer to it as the "Wedding Bible". I laugh every time I think back to my husband and I disagreeing over how to handle something related to the wedding and my husband completely seriously said to me "Get out the Bible!". Ha! This is now my go to gift for anyone I love that has recently gotten engaged. I have given it out over a dozen times and every bride loves it as much as I did. It is beautiful and organized so well that you can easily just reference what you need quickly and move on. I highly recommend this as a gift for any bride to be you love.
