Planning a wedding should be fun, exciting, and worry-free. However, we all know that most brides, grooms, and their families run into sticky situations or unique circumstances that aren't so black and white. Whether it's deciding how to handle divorced parents, who the couple should ask and how to ask them to participate in the wedding, or how to inform guests of where the couple is registered, Wedding Etiquette For Dummies® (Wiley, 978-0-470-50208-2, Dec. 2009) provides readers with the solutions to all types of situations big and small.

The book guides couples through the do's-and-don'ts of the wedding ceremony, as well as how to determine a guest list and gift registry. It also helps the guest with purchasing the proper gift, knowing when to send a gift if they are not attending the wedding and the proper procedure for sending a late gift. Wedding Etiquette For Dummies includes advice on:

- Who traditionally pays for what and how to make alternative arrangements

- How to properly announce your engagement to parents, children, friends, and the world

- Creating a wedding website

- Who hosts what events leading up to the wedding

- Second (or more) marriages

- Special considerations for military, ethnic, and religious weddings

- Respectfully dealing with opinionated or pushy in-laws

- Destination wedding snags and pitfalls

- How to tastefully incorporate trendy and new traditions into the ceremony and reception

- How to inform guests of wedding cancellations and postponements

The book covers these areas and more, allowing the wedding to proceed as planned.
