Getting married? Here are the answers you need to untangle all your knottiest concerns and help things run smoothly for you and your guests.

Weddings should be jubilant celebrations of love, but they can feel like minefields of complicated social rules and awkward situations. Step aside, person of honor! This book will become your most trusted confidant as you navigate your wedding. What Do I Do? goes beyond outdated, ponderous etiquette rules to give you the modern-day essentials in a fun Q&A format.  Each chapter begins with advice on current wedding etiquette rules and ends with your more frequently asked questions and answers to make this book an easy-to-follow guide for any wedding celebrant to be. With insightful, fresh advice and deep cuts from etiquette expert Mariah Grumet of Old Soul Etiquette, you’ll enjoy slicing into wedding planning.

Grumet’s guidance will show you how to have your cake and eat it too (without getting any of it on your face). You’ll learn how to manage your wedding with grace and sparkle, all the way from the ring pop to popping the champagne at the reception. This book will answer all the expected and not-so expected questions like:
  • There are members of our family who do not support our engagement. How do we navigate whether or not to invite them to the wedding?
  • I am on friendly terms with my ex. Do I send them an invitation to my wedding?
  • What is the etiquette around destination weddings so I can ensure my guests feel comfortable attending?
  • My wedding will be the first time my parents are in the same room together since their messy divorce. How do I diffuse this ticking time bomb?
  • How can we make sure our vendors are the right fit for the non-traditional style of wedding we want to have?
  • My partner and I are planning a special themed wedding and want our guests to dress in that theme. How do we make our dress code as stress-free as possible for our guests?
  • What is the proper timing for thank-you notes, according to etiquette?
  • My partner and I are an interfaith couple and want to have two different ceremonies. How do we budget for both of them?
  • I have turned into a bridezilla. Is there any way I can redeem myself?

With topics organized by section, you’ll easily find the guidance you need to keep tempers cool and drama at bay so that you can enjoy your special day!
