    As Maid of Honor for my best friends wedding I bought this book to help with ideas. It has a lot of useful tips about some things I wouldn't have thought about doing so I'm glad I got it and would recommend it for any bridesmaid!

    It was a simple read and gave lots of detailed information on wedding process and procedure. I feel much more informed. I do wish it went into a bit more detail on certain things. However it has several checklists to help you make sure you have everything ready. I liked that a lot. Made me feel much more prepared!
