- Letter from Dear Abby to Marjorie Maxfield, national wedding etiquette expert and WeddingWire etiquette authority and blog writer
Abby wrote to me immediately after my best-selling wedding etiquette handbook, The Write Stuff: A Modern Guide to Stationery and Weddings, was published in 2009. As a nationally-recognized etiquette expert, author, and speaker, I advise brides throughout the United States. I own a retail store, Tanglewood Gifts and Stationery, a mainstay in Houston since 1989.
Dear Wanting: The baby was on time. The wedding was late. Forget it.
Dear Bertie: Only if they don’t work.
Dear Abby: I have always wanted to have my family history traced, but I can’t afford to spend a lot of money to do it. Have you any suggestions? — M. J. B. in Oakland, Calif.
Dear M. J. B.: Yes. Run for a public office.
