    Overwhelmed by The Wedding World !

    I felt overwhelmed by the wedding world, so I purchased "The Busy Brides Bible for Planning a Fabulous Wedding Without the Expensive Cost of a Wedding Planner". I received the book in just two day and began reading it. I went from overwhelmed to under control in about a week after finishing the book. It's an easy read book, so I finished it in one day. Then my real wedding planning began. From my wedding theme, ceremony and reception site, wedding color palette, reception menus, ceremony and reception music, transportation, signature wedding cocktail, ceremony throw item, attendants' gift, guest favor and much much more, this book helped with everything. If you're a Bride you need this book. If you know a Bride, then this book is the perfect gift.

    It's Like a Professional Wedding Planner in a Book!

    It has everything a professional wedding planner would help you with and more. After reading it, I feel like I hired a wedding planner. I learned so much about planning my own wedding from example wedding color palettes to an example seating chart, this book has everything you need to plan your own wedding. The best thing is I only spent $11.55 on it and saved hundreds of dollars. So watch out wedding planners this book might take away your jobs.

    Literally my BIBLE!! Highly recommend!!

    I thought i knew what to do for planning my wedding, however, truth be told...I HAD NO IDEA how complex it really is! After searching for an affordable wedding planner, I realized there is NO such thing. I RECOMMEND this book for EVERYONE planning a wedding, it covers every possible area imaginable, and its small enough to carry it in your purse. (I recommend doing so, you may need it when you least expect it)
    Shipping was on time, and product was in perfect condition.

    p.s. Pictures throughout the book, believe me it helps!!

    Ease the Wedding Planning Stress !

    I am newly engaged and after talking to all my friends and family, I realized quickly how stressful planning my wedding was going to be. So I went to the bookstore to find a wedding planner...after looking at all of the options, I chose this planner/book. So far, the stress has eased tremendously! This planner not only shows you step by step of what needs to be done, but it also provides you with questions that you should ask the vendors that you are going to be choosing from. I highly recommend purching this planner if you are going to be planning a wedding!!

    All-around perfect!

    Excellent book for planning a wedding. I've used it for my sister and my cousin's weddings. It is detailed and covers everything from a to z. On top of that, the book is lightly comedic and cuts out all the extra stuff you don't need. It's concise and at a great price. I would reccomend it to any gal planning a wedding.

    Couldn't Have Stayed Sane Without This Gift !

    I recently got married and was given this book to help with ideas. I work all the time and was on a budget, so when it came to creative ideas, I needed them by the bucketful. This book was by far the best book I read and gave me many beautiful, tasteful and unique ideas to use which made our special day, beautiful, elegant and uniquely 'us' without breaking our bank. Thanks a million. I highly recommend this book to all busy brides on a budget.

    Great Wedding Planning Book for Any Budget!

    Great Wedding Planning Book for Any Budget! This book is a very comprehensive guide to planning your own wedding. The checklists are great and help keep you focused on what is important and when things need to be completed. The author covered questions to ask vendors, which is helpful in discovering hidden fees. She also mentions the best ways to save money and gives great advice for budgeting your wedding. Both traditional and nontraditional styles are covered in this book, so it should fit into almost any brides style of wedding. Every aspect of planning a wedding is covered styles and fabrics of wedding dresses are even described. This book even offers tips for what style dress is best for your body type. I love that the book is both a cost savings guide and a guide to general wedding planning. Whether you have a large or small budget, this book will help you plan a great wedding while sticking to your budget. The organized bride will love this book. The order of the chapters, the checklists, the lists of questions to ask are all great tools to keep on track. I would recommend this book to all brides.

    Best Bridal Book Out There!

    I scowered the shelves of the local bookstore looking for a wedding planning book. Most book were too big and bulky or just un-useful. But this book is perfect, it's the right size, covers all areas of the wedding ceremony and reception. I used it with my catering hall interview, the event coordinator commented on the questions it had me asking and said they were very good questions.

    As a wedding planner, I recommend this book.

    As a wedding planner, I am always looking for new and different information to pass on to my clients. This book is just perfect. The tips for choosing the best wedding dress are excellent and it gives many cost-cutting suggestions, but never at the expense of style and class. I recommend all Brides to purchase this book and read it through several times for that fabulous wedding day.

From the design of my wedding ceremony program to choosing a photographer this book covers everything.

    Angela Kear Knows Wedding !

    Angela Kear Knows Wedding ! I am the type of girl who loves to reading herself on anything new going on in my life. Any new endeavor I consider trying, I need to buy 20 books on the subject beforehand! I was the same way when I got engaged. I went online and made a list of about 30 books (ridiculous, I know!) that I planned to buy about weddings. I purchased a wedding planner and then this book. As soon as I got it I threw away my list of other wedding books to purchase (I may end up purchasing one of those books of lists, though, simply because I am a list-aholic). This book really does have it all! Most of the information in the book (and there is a lot of it, this book covers EVERYTHING) is general and not specific to "fancy" or "celebrity" weddings, though. All in all, it's fun to read and extremely informative. The best thing about this book is that it covers absolutely everything wedding-related. Happy Wedding Planning!

    Great Resource For Brides!

    Great Resource For Brides! This is a great resource book for any bride getting married. I found each section very helpful with detailed information, tips, and advice. The section on what needs to be in your vendor contracts is so valuable, it definetly keeps you from getting ripped-off. The detailed lists she has covering everything from what to take on your honeymoon, to what to have at the receptions, including color and theme ideas are great! I take this book to all my appointments. I recommend this book to any bride, even if you have a wedding planner.
