andlt;bandgt;WEDDING MANNERS FOR MODERN TIMES FROM THE ETIQUETTE EXPERT FOR THE POPULAR WEDDING WEBSITE INDIEBRIDEandlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; In andlt;iandgt;Something New,andlt;/iandgt; etiquette columnist Elise Mac Adam tackles every wedding question, from the frivolous to the frightful, demonstrating how etiquette is designed to make people feel comfortable and offering a road map for how to behave in any sticky situation...even how to deal with people who, themselves, could use a little remedial etiquette assistance. Mac Adam offers easy cheat sheets for the rules of traditional comportment, elaborates on ways to manipulate or jettison traditions to suit your modern life, and — using real-life case studies — shows etiquette at work in practically every nuptial-related circumstance, including: andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; What do you do if your best man is dog phobic and the ring bearer is your bride's Alaskan malamute? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; HOW MANY BRIDAL SHOWERS IS TOO MANY? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; HOW DO YOU COMPOSE AN INVITATION THAT MENTIONS ALL OF YOUR PARENTS AND STEPPARENTS? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; CAN YOU DECLINE THE HONOR OF BEING A BRIDESMAID AND PRESERVE YOUR FRIENDSHIP? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; CAN YOU REGISTER FOR PRESENTS IF YOU ELOPE? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THE REHEARSAL DINNER GUEST LIST? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; WHAT IS THE PROTOCOL WHEN ONE FAMILY DRINKS (A LOT) AND THE OTHER DOESN'T (AT ALL)? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; CAN YOU HAVE A CHILD-FREE WEDDING? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOUR HOSTS FORGET TO INVITE YOUR WIFE? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; and#149; DO YOU HAVE TO INVITE YOUR BOSS? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Exploring the nuptial maze from every angle, andlt;iandgt;Something Newandlt;/iandgt; demonstrates how everyone involved with a wedding (and even people who are left out) can use etiquette to suit his or her needs — for better, never for worse.
