Weddings, more than any other event, inspire a desire to “do it right.” But many brides and families don’t know the guidelines that can smooth the way. This creates friction, indecisiveness, and stress. As you know, when you confidently provide answers, you’ve dramatically improved your client’s experience. Your knowledge, backed by the name Emily Post, gives your clients the confidence that you’re the last word.

Anna Post and Lizzie Post, co-authors of Emily Post’s Wedding Etiquette, 6th edition, will guide you through wedding etiquette from engagements to honeymoons. There isn’t a wedding etiquette question that Anna and Lizzie haven’t answered, and they are at your disposal for one entire day.
