Miss Manners' guide to weddings

Miss Manners' Guide to a Surprisingly Dignified Wedding is her second wedding guide.  Here's an excerpt from the review in the January 2010 issue of BookPage:

"Ten years ago, the wedding of Miss Manners' son prompted a book in which the etiquette expert defended good sense and propriety against a wedding industry gone berserk.  ...  "  [Now questions asking for more help, along with the wedding of her daughter, have brought forth a new book.]   "Miss Manners and [her] daughter offer a calm compromise between ... a garish extravaganza [that guests are often asked to pay for] ... and simply eloping."
