When a couple joyfully proclaims, #147;We're getting married!" we all know what to say: Congratulations! But what words should come after that? This invaluable guide for the bridal party and family covers not only the important public speeches, but everything from phrasing a formal engagement announcement to asking guests to join you for a morning-after brunch. In addition to beautifully composed samples of announcements, invitations, RSVP responses, and toasts, there are questions to spark ideas for content in writing the speech and guidance on delivering a toast. #147;Wedding Words Tips" throughout provide advice on such important matters as who throws the shower, when it's appropriate to use e-mail to communicate, and where it's okay to give the bawdy toasts#151;and when to resist that temptation!
