Wedding Parties: Expert Etiquette Advice from Anna Post
Special Appearance by Anna Post on Feb. 2 at 1 Fort Mason

San Francisco, CA— Do bridesmaids have to host a shower? Should you bring a gift to an engagement party? Must you attend four pre-wedding gatherings? How should you thank the person who hosted your shower? Who pays for the bachelor party? Should all of the out-of-town guests be invited to the rehearsal dinner?
Author Anna Post has the answers to these questions and many more in her book Emily Post’s Wedding Parties ($22.95). Anna will appear on Saturday, Feb, 2, 2008 at 1 Fort Mason to meet with brides and guests to answer their wedding etiquette questions. The event takes place from 10 am – 12 pm and is hosted by Amy Nichols Special Events. Mimosas and sweet treats will be served while Anna shares tips and insights. Tickets are $10.

Anna is the great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post and the newest member of the Post family to write about etiquette. Weddings are more than the big day—the parties start months in advance and often continue after the wedding. In her book, Anna looks at each celebration from a traditional perspective and explores trends in wedding parties and entertaining styles.
