Publisher Comments:

Even if you've never attended a wedding in the South, you'll find laughter in the pages of this deliciously entertaining slice of Southern life and love, complete with recipes, advice, and a huge dose of that famous charm

"In the Mississippi Delta, funerals bring out the best in people, while weddings, which are supposed to be happy occasions, bring out the worst." So say Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays, authors of the bestseller Being Dead Is No Excuse: The Official Southern Ladies' Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral, who turn their keen eyes and sharp wit from the end of the life cycle to the all-important midpoint. For anyone planning, participating in, or attending a wedding (Southern or not), this book will amuse, entertain, and provide advice for marital bliss, including:

  • It's OK to peek at an etiquette book, but if you rely too heavily on it, people will think that you are not fully acquainted with what is right and wrong.
  • Anything that was not done in the past doesn't need to be done now--consider this before ordering a groom's cake, especially one featuring a fishing-tackle or golfing theme.

Synopsis:

In the Mississippi Delta, funerals bring out the best in people, while weddings, which are supposed to be happy occasions, bring out the worst. A Delta wedding is an extravaganza that has been years in the making, and even if you???ve never faced a wedding south of Rochester, this book will charm, entertain, and give you all the ingredients for marital bliss, including: why you must never congratulate the bride; the difference between high noon, at home, and shotgun weddings; signs you might be marrying beneath yourself; and how to be a spinster and keep your dignity. Includes recipes for a Sunday lunch designed to win a young man??'s heart, rice bag parties, non-A list weddings, and more.

Synopsis:

Even those who have never attended a wedding in the South will find laughter in the pages of this deliciously entertaining slice of Southern life and love, complete with recipes, advice, and a huge dose of that famous charm.
