Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book reflects the best knowledge, wit, and wisdom of one of the world's best wedding professionals … Laugh with her, learn from her. (Gerard J. Monaghan, president, Association of Bridal Consultants)
Library Journal
Hey, written just for me—I am a complete idiot (just ask the future Mrs. Dude). Let me tell you, this initially rubbed me the wrong way with too many "lovely bride" pictures and cringe-inducing phrases (e.g., "wedding bliss," "bridal shows") cropping up. The words pretty and beautiful seem ubiquitous (yeah, I used a big word. Right click on it). So while a little disturbing at first blush, this insightfully points out that the wedding business is an industry, one that is keenly interested in taking your hard-earned Benjamins. And on the whole, Lenderman encourages readers to keep costs realistic, not unnecessarily expensive and lavish. Overall, this title feels uninformative and picture heavy—more for chicks than dudes.Alternate Take: Robert Armstrong's Your First Powerboat: How To Find, Buy, and Enjoy the Best Boat for You. Shopping for a wedding is not unlike shopping for a nice boat: lots of options, pretty expensive. Take your time and do it right.—Douglas Lord, "Books for Dudes," BookSmack! 8/5/10
