Summary

Summary

If there is any occasion for which good manners are a must, it is a wedding! With excerpts from ten authorities on wedding etiquette, including Abby Buchanan Longstreet, Anna Steese (Sausser) Richardson, and Emily Post, this wonderfully unique book remembers American wedding customs from the colonial days to the 1920s. Discover the surprising origins of the bridal ring, peek inside the 19th century's bride's trousseau, and follow couples through traditions and customs that may seem quirky and amusing, as well as moving and sentimental, by today's standards.
