    Great Idea

    The neat cover got my attention when I was actually looking at bridal books. Finally something for the guy. Great idea! My fiance' was feeling a little left out of the whole wedding planning, so he got a kick out of the book. It actually gave him some direction and ideas.

    A perfect guide for all preparations

    This book has everything that I needed to know. I looked at this before I even purchased the ring, and it told me everything that I needed to know about the ring, wedding plans, and even forced me to question why I was making this decision.

    The cover really got my attention

    The book is very informative and guides you through all aspects of the engagement period, wedding arrangements, the wedding and honeymoom. You have answered all the questions plus more that I had. Once I started reading it I just couldn't put it down. I read about the book in the Today's Groom magazine.

    Great wedding planning!

    I thought this book was very informative and helpful in planning for a wedding. It covers all the key points in an understadable fashion.
