Library Journal

Roney spoke briefly of destination weddings in her popular offering The Knot Complete Guide to Weddings in the Real World. Here, she gives them her undivided attention, relating her authoritative information on planning, vendors, guest lists, ceremonies, and receptions while taking into consideration the special circumstances of a wedding adventure far from home. Insider tips and practical pointers address everything from orchestrating guest arrivals in a foreign land to anticipating a beauty crisis in another climate. Convenient time lines, checklists, and work sheets make planning easier. A directory describes more than 30 popular destinations in the United States, Latin America, Europe, the Caribbean, and the Pacific Rim. The listings convey what draws people to a place, explain the most desirable travel time, tout a few of the hottest venues, and explain marriage requirements. Couples looking for a broader directory with coverage of Canada and more European locales might prefer Lisa Light's Destination Bride: A Complete Guide to Planning Your Wedding Anywhere in the World. Recommended for all public libraries.

From the moment we got engaged we knew we wanted to get married in Hawaii and have our whole family come! Where do you start when trying to plan a wedding thousands of miles away? With this book! I picked it up in the store and couldn't put it down. It has so many good ideas and not to mention all the necessary details you probably wouldn't think of when planning a wedding in some far away place. I knew I had to own this book to help me with the details. As well as being a book of facts on destination weddings, the back includes all the pages and worksheets for budgeting and writing your wedding day plans! At such a good price this book is a must if you plan on having a destination wedding!

I purchased this book to help me plan my DESTINation wedding in Destin, FL. Although it focuses on destination weddings all over the globe, it lists a lot of great tips and things to remember when planning a destination wedding. It also highlights the things that are "different" from a traditional wedding....such as who pays for what, what to wear, etc. An especially great resource if you know you want a destination wedding, but aren't sure on the location. Also, great checklists and guides to help you make sure you don't forget anything!
