Encore brides and couples with divorced parents will find helpful and suitable advice in this sophisticated, up-to-date wedding guide and etiquette primer. Jann Blackstone-Ford, a certified divorce and stepfamily mediator, and Sharyl Jupe, her husband’s first wife, know firsthand how to make a blended family wedding a joyous affair. Together they take couples step-by-step through the wedding process, from the engagement to the planning stage, from the bridal shower to the wedding ceremony, and from the reception to the honeymoon or "familymoon." The topics addressed include how and when to tell children about remarriage; how children from a previous marriage will participate in the new wedding; how to arrange a harmonious seating plan for divorced in-laws; how to graciously word the invitations when the parents of the bride or groom are divorced; who stands where in the wedding pictures and the receiving line; how not to play favorites when among siblings, half-siblings, and stepsiblings; and how to address who walks the bride down the aisle—her father or her stepfather? A complete resource guide listing web sites and books rounds out this helpful volume.

Introduction -- Laying the groundwork -- Your engagement -- Setting the budget -- Getting organized -- Attendants and attire -- Guest list and invitations -- Showers and bachelor and bachelorette parties -- The rehearsal dinner -- The ceremony -- The reception -- Destination and theme weddings, honeymoons, and familymoons -- Formalities.
