    WEDDING BIBLE

    When I got married I purchased a previous addition of this book. I carried it with me everywhere I went. Now my sister's getting married & I must get this for her! After reading the contents, I wish that some of the new chapters had been in when I got married. My sister will be able to appreciate the book even more than I did. A fantastic guide to anyone getting married!

    Great Planning Tool!

    There are so many books to choose from when planning a wedding! I saw this book in several magazines and in a lot of the bridal shops so I figured it was a good one! The checklists were so helpful because there are so many little things that you could easily overlook! It was a down-to-earth book without all of the snobby rules & etiquette that most wedding books have. She gave lots of suggestions & ideas on how to have a beautiful wedding, but she didn't tell you that you 'absolutely had' to do certain things. It was definitely a helpful tool and made the planning a lot less stressful!!

    This book saved me!!!!!

    This wedding planner helped me think of and keep track of all the little details that can easily be forgotten! It has a timeline, calendar pages, questions to ask when choosing different professionals (photographer, etc.), and pockets to keep track of your bills/deposits paid!!! I don't know what I would have done without this wedding planner!!!!!

    Brides-to-be purchase this book!!!

    I was given this book by two of my bridesmaids and it has been so helpful. The book guides you through what you need to do to plan your wedding. It contains helpful checklists so you can see what you have done and what you still need to do. There are suggestions on where to have unique weddings or receptions, and it gives suggestions on how to word your invitations. There are places to write down your own personal information as you go along. I have carried this book to the florist and reception sites because it gives you excellent questions you need to ask when planning your special day. I suggest that every bride purchase this book, it will save you alot of headaches and will be a great keepsake afterwards.

    Excellent Book

    This book is everything the Bride-to-be will need. I've looked at other books that said they offered the same things, and this book was much better by far. It has checklists and schedules, offers suggestions, and points out many things that you may not have caught while planning. If you are looking for a planner in addition to a suggestion book, than this one is for you.
