The Bride's Year Ahead: The Ultimate Month-by-Month Wedding Plannerby Marguerite Smolen, Carol Ross (Photographer)
The Bride's Year Ahead outlines the entire wedding process, starting one year before the wedding. Unlike other wedding planners that are arranged by subject, this book is organized in a progressive, month-by-month fashion that starts one year before the wedding. This month-by-month countdown to the big event uses twelve tabbed sections to organizing everything from catering, guest lists and budgets to planning the honeymoon and sending thank-you notes. Each monthly chapter includes a generous pocket for storage, beautiful full color photographs, advice and time saving tips, comprehensive guidance on what needs to be done, a monthly task list, plus charts for planning, price comparisons and budgeting. There is also a large clear zippered pocket for storage and eight detachable "to-do" lists for each member of the wedding party. With over 200 color photographs and beautiful design details, this book will become a cherished memento of the wedding.

I loved using this book, it broke down the huge task of planning a wedding into manageable pieces. It was so nice to cross off tasks each month. I played around with the to-do order, but this kept us from becoming stressed out and overwhelmed. I also loved how its a box, so I could keep everything together.
This book was pretty but I didn't find it entirely useful. A lot of the things in the book were a bit too sentimental and not enough practical advice. There were a few things I found that seemed out of order to me. One of them was about six months before the wedding the book suggested that you compile a guest list. They suggested this AFTER you book a reception venue. When planning a wedding of any size you need to know how many people plan on attending before you start booking things.
This is a wonderful book, full of absolutely GORGEOUS models! I wonder if they're professionals, or if there is any hope of 'regular' people looking this good? Great photography!
