I received this pretty book as a gift when I was a bride 8 yrs ago. It's a nice small book with beautiful illustration.However, it is much more than this. Even those it does describe some "Southern" traditions as displaying the gifts, it has no many more helpful, kind, and beautifully worded subjects on etiquette. I found it so helpful to address potentially sticky situations in the best, nicest way. It was a wonderful resource for me as a bride, and a genuine help.I've had the pleasure of giving this favorite book to several brides, all of whom found it to be sweetly worded and with good information. Even for young, modern girls, there is no substitute for handling yourself like a gracious person. This book helps one to do just that.
This is a pretty little book with lovely illustrations. Too bad the content doesn't live up to the packaging. The book is written for the genteel Southern bride from another generation, not for today's modern bride. Case in point, on page 56 the authors state, "The wedding gifts are displayed at the bride's home on tables draped in white tablecloths...A lovely custom is for the bride's mother to give a trousseau tea the week before the wedding. Friends and family are invited for a delightful afternoon of tea and a chance to view the wedding gifts and bride's trousseau." Talk about boasting.On page 23 they recommend hiring a secretary to help with the planning!!Your money can be better spent on a book of wedding etiquette that more accurately reflects today's society.
