Overview

Boy meets Girl. Boy realizes she's The One. Boy proposes to Girl. Now what? The Knot Guide for the Groom is a relationship-saving guide to weddings for guys who think taffeta is a candy and Jordan almonds is the stripper booked for the bachelor party. With the wisdom and gentle humor of a big sister, The Knot's Carley Roney distills the rituals and duties of the modern wedding into a succinct script that even the most clueless guy can followand possibly enjoy. The wedding planning process is outlined in just enough detail to inform without causing undue terror, with emphasis on traditional groom duties such as finding an officiant for the ceremony, hiring a band or a DJ, and obtaining the marriage license. Extra attention is given to critical topics such as choosing a bride-approved wedding look (whether tuxedo or beach casual) and planning a honeymoon she'll enjoy too. Plus, advice on choosing a best man and groomsmen (and understanding their roles) helps the groom pick a winning team. With an accessible illustrated handbook format, The Knot Guide for the Groom will turn regular guys into happy husbands.

    Good for Gift Giving

    I bought this when i found out my friend was engaged. I got her a wedding planning book and bought this for her fiance. I thought this would be a good gift because, honestly, how many men know what to do. No he wont have to listen to her tellin him what to do he'll already know! :)

    This book preserves the sanity of both bride and groom!

    I got this book for my husband when we were planning the wedding, after he said 'A tux is a tux... isn't it?' After I read several dozen magazines aimed at the bride, I felt pretty overwhelmed. According to the magazines, everything had to be just-so, color-coordinated, with antique lace and imported wine.... And then one night, I reached for this book on the fiance's bookshelf, and entered a world of perspective and sanity. I threw out most of my conceptions of wedding planning that I had based on those Bridezilla magazines, and adopted the Zen spirit of The Knot Guide for the Groom. I highly recommend this book for brides and grooms alike. It would make a great gift for that bride-to-be who is starting to look a little frazzled around the edges!
