Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
OK, I was suspicious of the Creamsicle-colored cover, but this is good stuff. If you're considering something untraditional (cool), thinking your whole wedding day will be untraditional (even cooler), or realizing you're a juggalo, you will find this to be a helpful and supportive work. Perhaps you don't want a limo; you want a dune buggy. Maybe instead of a waltz on the first dance, you want to headbang to Metallica (I've witnessed this). Well, that's OK—it's your day, and you can do what you want with no pressure from the grown-ups. The tips here range in complexity from relatively simple decisions (a three-tier cake instead of five) to multiple-component tweaks (e.g., a no-kids-allowed wedding; Bunny Hop vs. Chicken Dance) to major overhauls (e.g., incorporating several religious faiths into the service; zombie-themed weddings). Particularly helpful chapters include "Explaining Your Day to Vendors and Bridal Party Members" and one with tips for when you have to defend your decisions (e.g., head to head with the in-laws. Or Glenn Beck).Alternate Take: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson, whose mom was a Louisville reference librarian. Break with tradition indeed.—Douglas Lord, "Books for Dudes," BookSmack! 8/5/10
