Once you've blagged your invitation to the ball (see Chris O's review of Ballguide.at), or, even, THAT wedding (P.S. one entrepreneur has started selling 'Royal Wedding sick bags'), next stop has to be Debretts (http://www.debretts.co.uk/ ) to check out the guest list.
Debrett's is the modern authority on all matters of etiquette, social occasions, people of distinction and fine style.
Debrett's range of modern etiquette publications such as Debrett's A-Z of Modern Manners, Debrett's Wedding Guide, Debrett's Correct Form, Debrett's Etiquette for Girls and Debrett's Guide for the Modern Gentleman are acclaimed, indispensable references in a world where 'getting it right' is more and more important with conventions less and less understood.
Still available are Debrett's classic editions such as Debrett's Peerage & Baronetage - now in its 148th imprint - and Debrett's People of Today, the ultimate guide to movers and shakers in British society, published in book and electronic form. Free access to over 25,000 biographies and an essential guide to the peerage, the royal family and the honours system...
They offer a 'unique and indispensable guide to negotiating the social minefield of British titles and styles.'
Enjoy a social calendar that embraces a year-round array of events, from the summer highlights of the traditional Social Season to high profile sporting fixtures, opera festivals, food extravaganzas, carnivals and parades.
To ensure that your aristocratic bloodline won't be sullied by mixing with inferior bloodstock (introducing such lower class dangers such as backbone, chins, brains, thinking) please check out potential breeding mates for your offspring at Debretts.
What a hoot.
