"If you are a human and you consort with other humans, at some point in your life you will either host or attend a wedding. And for these occasions, I love Emily Post's Etiquette not only for the un-stuffy, succinct way she takes on every exigency (she will tell you what to do if you got plastered and acted like a pig at your friend's Most Special Day Ever and how to play nice at third weddings), but also for her myth-debunking skills. No, you do not have up to a year to send a wedding gift. No, you are not required to spend as much on the gift as the hosts are spending on you. No (hallelujah!), your children are not invited unless their names are on the invitation. All hail Emily Post. Buy the book and you'll know not only exactly what to do at a wedding, but what to do the next time you—well, do anything, really."
