This book is a really good helping guide. It offers a nice way to navigate potential ups and downs of being gay and getting married. However, all of the resources available in the book can be found with a few web searches. It also has absolutely no politics or principles in relation to current pressing debates about queerness, marriage and civil rights. If you don't have a perspective or thought about the current socio-cultural atmosphere in the US, this book is for you. Otherwise, I recommend we press our rich and powerful queers to take stances and publish information that will help us not only 'get married' (however unofficially), but also get rights and get more conscious. I think that David and staff mean well, though they also seem to be trying to corner a market rather than participate in movement.

First off, I would like to clarify something to many people. I am a straight male, and even though this book is a guide to gay and lesbian weddings, it is also a really well written resource for those planning to get married - it appeals to EVERYONE. The author, K.C. David, knows very much what he is talking about and I think that the most compelling thing about this guide book is the fact that it covers every aspect about getting married and it covers many things that most people would not remember or even think about! All in all, I think that if you're going to get married, whether you are gay, straight, or lesbian, you and anyone else should pick up this book because it will blow you away with its content. It was very well written and it's very user friendly. I picked this up and finished it in a couple days - that's how much it pulled me in! Anyway, I think anyone that will be getting married should embrace this book like a Bible! Enjoy reading! :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Even straight couples can find something in this book! It's creative and packed full of ideas, especially the section on 'Writing Your Vows'... if nothing else, it's worth the price. I hope they put this in the wedding section of every bookstore! It's about time they wrote one for gay and lesbian couples... but also pack it with so many creative ideas that traditional couples want to get it too! An inclusive book that is written for our community... which really shows how creative our couples really are! BRAVO!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
