This is a fun and informative book for the bride-to-be who appreciates traditional weddings but is considering a twist to the wedding of the past. It's a must–have book for modern women getting married, for couples who have different cultural or different religious backgrounds, and for same sexed couples.

Carolyn Gerin and Kathleen Hughes clearly present traditional ways of preparing your wedding, from invitations and thank you letters, to wardrobe and choosing bridesmaids and groomsmen. Following the etiquette of the traditional, the authors offer a unique approach to wedding preparations to suit the needs of many couples looking to unite in an original way, that's appropriate to their lifestyle and backgrounds, but that does not step on anyone's toes, and avoids offending family members and friends. Great advice is given by the authors, in the same way a best friend would, with lightness and humor and care - all compiled in a well-written pocket guidebook.

Gerin and Hughes tell us that 'Being an Anti-Bride is about having your wedding your way, without getting bogged down by rules and regulations' while still not offending loved ones. This book will help you understand where people come from, and make the rules work for you, at the same time as you invent some of your own. Topics range from solutions to problems and issues that come up during preparations or on the wedding day, to handling sticky situations, stress savers and tips on gifts and wardobe. Anti-Bride Etiquette Guide will help give you the confidence you need to pull off the wedding of your dreams with grace and with style.
