Book Description

Based on the Award-Winning How to Be a Perfect Stranger:
The Essential Religious Etiquette Handbook
Wedding day jitters aren’t reserved for brides and grooms!
A wedding is a joyous event—but you can feel awkward while everyone else is enjoying the wedding if you’re unfamiliar with the religious tradition and customs involved. You want to be sure that you know how to behave and what to expect. There’s no need to enter an unfamiliar atmosphere unprepared, wondering:
• What will happen?
• What should I wear?
• How long will it last?
• Is it okay to take pictures?
• Will there be a reception?
• Should I bring a gift?
• When is it okay to leave?
The Perfect Stranger’s Guide to Wedding Ceremonies  helps to answer these questions and many more, telling you everything you need to know to avoid embarrassment, relax, and have a good time.
Covers all the major (and many minor) denominations and religions found in North America!

Stuart Matlins is founder, editor-in-chief and publisher of Jewish Lights Publishing and SkyLight Paths Publishing. Both imprints focus on religion and spirituality from a broad non-denominational perspective. He is author or editor of several books, including the best-selling How to Be a Perfect Stranger, 5th Edition: The Essential Religious Etiquette Handbook (SkyLight Paths); The Jewish Lights Spirituality Handbook: A Guide to Understanding, Exploring & Living a Spiritual Life (Jewish Lights); The Perfect Stranger’s Guide to Wedding Ceremonies: A Guide to Etiquette in Other People’s Religious Ceremonies; and The Perfect Stranger’s Guide to Funerals and Grieving Practices: A Guide to Etiquette in Other People’s Religious Ceremonies (both SkyLight Paths).


Editorial Reviews

Review

"The central idea here is excellent…. A perfect gift." -- Publishers Weekly

“Finally, a wedding reference book detailing specific and concise religious protocol. A masterpiece of information!” -- Nonnie Cameron, President, Etiquette Plus

“Finally, for those inclined to undertake their own spiritual journeys…tells visitors what to expect.” -- New York Times

“Inviting and practical…. Helps us appreciate and know the vast variety of our religious voices.” -- Rev. Dr. Joan Brown Campbell, General Secretary, National Council of Churches

From the Inside Flap

The handbook to proper behavior at weddings of almost any religion or denomination

Despite the joy of the celebration, attending a wedding can be a tense, uncomfortable experience for guests who are not familiar with the religious tradition and customs involved. And in today’s diverse North American society, we are often invited—through family, friends, or business contacts—to religious ceremonies or services that are not of our own religious tradition or faith. If you don’t know what’s going to happen and what you should do, it’s easy to spend more time worrying about how to behave than enjoying the occasion: What will happen? What do I wear? What should I avoid doing, wearing, saying? (What if I can’t attend—should I send a gift?) How long will it last? Can I take pictures? When is it okay to leave? Will there be a reception? What will it be like?

These are just a few of the basic, very practical questions answered in this unique etiquette guide covering all the major (and many minor) denominations and religions found in North America—from Buddhist to Catholic, from Jewish to Methodist—making it the essential wedding-goer’s companion.
