Weddings today are so much more than just the Big Day—the parties start months ahead and continue well afterward. This portable guide is perfect for anyone involved in the many parties surrounding weddings.

In Part 1, “It’s a Party!” Anna Post covers the vital stats of each party, be it an engagement celebration, couples’ shower, (bachelor)ette party, wedding week spa getaway, rehearsal dinner, reception, farewell brunch, or belated reception.

Part 2, “Party Smarts,” is packed with party-giving expertise to make every occasion a success: planning tips; figuring out finances; choosing food, flowers, and music; invitation how-to; handling uninvited guests and RSVP slackers; finding the perfect gift; making introductions and toasts; and more.

Looking for ways to throw a super shower on a budget? Wondering if it’s OK to e-mail invitations? Tongue-tied writing thank-you notes? Need ideas for adding a touch of style to a garden barbecue or a seated dinner? It’s all here. Whatever the occasion and whether you’re the bride, host, or guest, Anna Post helps make every wedding party wonderful.
