Today's brides are bombarded with wedding advice that promises perfection but urges achieving it through selfishness ( It's your wedding, and you can do whatever you like ), greed (choosing the presents that guests are directed to buy), and showing off ( This is your chance to show everyone what you're about ). Couples wishing to resist such pressure see elopement or a slapdash wedding as the only alternatives to a gaudy blowout. But ne of these choices appealed to a bride who happened to have been brought up by Miss Manners. Judith Martin and her newlywed daughter, Jacobina, explain how to have a dignified ceremony and delightful celebration without succumbing to the w-prevalent pattern of the vulgar, money-draining wedding that exhausts families and exploits friends.
Jacobina Martin teaches improvisational comedy at Chicago's Second City and just married Ronald Kroll. Judith Martin, born a perfect lady in an imperfect society, is the author of the Miss Manners columns and best-selling books, two novels, and a travel book on Venice. She and her husband live in Washington, DC.
