Covering such wedding staples as attendants, invitations, registries, showers, the ceremony, the reception, and thank yous, Etiquette guru Jeanne Hamilton will give numerous examples of bad etiquette that should be avoided at all costs, such as:

-No bride owns the calendar. Insisting that everyone within your acquaintance had not dare schedule their wedding anywhere within a six month time period labels you as a classic Bridezilla.

-Sponsored wedding, at which vendors who donate their services are offered the opportunity to put their logos on various wedding related paper products.

-It is never wise to make bridesmaid offers while in the grip of fluttery, just-engaged emotions. You may have to rescind those offers later when you realize you were just a bit too hasty. Once having made the offer, it is extraordinarily ungracious to rescind it, unless you want a seething friend or sister using your engagement photo as a dartboard.

-Enclosing a blank deposit form for a bank account bearing the names of the bride and the groom with the invitation.

And much more! This is a hilarious exploration of how weddings can literally drive people mad.
