Library JournalThe author of 30 wedding books, Naylor now offers something for happily married couples who want to renew their vows. Re-commitment ceremonies are a growing trend and not solely for couples reaching milestone anniversaries. They are often done by those whose marriages have withstood a particularly trying time, couples wanting to share their happiness, or by someone just wanting a "do-over." As in her wedding books, Naylor presents an array of successful ideas within sections on planning the ceremony, attire, and reception. Her real-life examples and cautionary tales are especially useful because renewals aren't nearly as encumbered by traditions and social expectations as weddings—they can be highly personalized. Though readers at this stage in life are often contract-savvy, the author's business reminders are helpful since the party industry is constantly evolving. As usual, Naylor considers a spectrum of budgets. For example, when noting that party favors are nice, her suggestions range from jade pendants to frosted cookies. As recommitments gain popularity, this distinctive book will be in demand. Highly recommended for all public libraries.
