    I thought the book was ok. The tips and order was good but i didnt like how it made being a brides maid a chore. My best friend from kindergarten is getting married and i'm ecstatic about it. But other wise the advice it good.

    Buy one and pass it on!

    A friend of mine gave me this book 5 years ago, and told me to pass it on to anyone who asks me, 'What does a bridesmaid do!?' Since I'm currently serving my 4th wedding party, I've passed this book to several friends, although I've never given up my personal copy! This book helps you through all of the stages, and is entertaining at the same time! Enjoy!

    Susan, a Bride in Arkansas

    This was a cute and helpful book. I read it, marked certain pages with my own comments and gave it to my Maid of Honor. This way, she could see what I did and didn't expect of her; and, there was proof to back up that it wasn't out of the ordinary.

    what every bridesmaid and bride needs to know

    There are so many ways to throw a wedding. So many cultures, and religions and interpretations. How does a modern maid know what the bride expects? This book gives us a lighthearted look at the details of being a good attendant. Give this to your maids and put everyone on the same page.

    It was my right hand, literally!

    I was asked to stand up in my first wedding last summer. I was the last one to be asked but the first to take charge because of this book. It is THE wedding planner for bridesmaids, and now with my second bridesmaid mission next summer, I'm armed to the hilt with this guide! Worth every penny, just for the laughs alone.

    VERY PRACTICAL AND FUNNY

    Liked this funny book a lot. Really helped me. Reading it was like having the 4 girls from Sex & the City in the same room with me giving advice. Plus it really calmed me down by having experts on my side.
