In 1922, Emily Post understood the necessity of guidelines for every occasion and published Etiquette in Society, an immediate blockbuster. Synonymous with manners, Post might cringe at some of the modern wedding practices and conduct at these 21st century soirées. Although many of Post’s wedding rules have loosened or been abandoned, her fundamental truths about how to act at a wedding or any other of life’s gatherings have not changed. Always attempt to please the greatest number of people because good manners never go out of style.
