  • Planning the budget without draining anyone's account
  • Negotiating a guest list with the bride, her family, and his family
  • Navigating the all-important bachelor party

I wanted my new Fiancee to be involved with wedding plans but I knew I didn't trust him to help make decisions and throw in his opinion when he's had absolutly no experience with wedding planning. So I bought him this book hoping that maybe he'd learn something so he could eventually help me out, and low and behold it worked. The humorous writting style captured his short attention span and actually soaked into his memory bank. For Brides today I know you want your fiancee to help out with wedding planning, but at the same time wish they had your knowledge to do the right thing. This book totally takes care of that problem and educates your man to think like a bride...well at least think.

Recieved as a present from my Mother at my engagement dinner. Both my fiance (now wife) and I read it straight through that night. We earmarked pages and kept returning to the book during the wedding planning process. Again, great book and hillarious!

This book really is funny and surprisingly useful. I've bought three copies so far for friends who are getting married.

I got this book as a present from my future mother-in-law and read it in one night. It has lots of useful information for guys getting married, and it's laugh-out-loud funny.
