Mother of the Bride: Refreshment and Wisdom for the Mother of the Bride by Cheryl Barker is a wonderful book!! Besides being full of excellent ideas and guidance on the planning of a wedding, it takes you on a journey of honest emotions and struggles that a MOB (Mother of the Bride) will face and gives thoughtful reflections on dealing with those emotions. It is laced with just the right amount of humor to make this a fun, sentimental, and interesting read (even if you aren't a MOB). Plus, the wedding vendor worksheets included cover every aspect of wedding planning that you will need!

This book is a delight!! I have been the mother of the groom once and, I am told by our youngest son, will soon be again. We have only the one daughter and I want her wedding experience to be a joy. I found so many things in this book to be inspirational, full of wisdom, full of caution, but most of all, overwhelmingly practical! I will carry this book with me every step of the way. I intend to buy a copy for every friend when they have the joy of becoming an MOB! Thank you Cheryl for your wonderful book!!

Loved it and highly recommend Mother of the Bride: Refreshment and Wisdom. It would make a great gift for a friend or your self during this very special time. I found the book encouraging, inspiring and humorous at times as Cheryl Barker shares some of her personal experiences. It is also full of practical and helpful hints. One highlight of the book is it can become a keepsake. Each chapter ends with a page where you can share personal thoughts and feelings during your journey of being a MOB. I suggest you get it early on in the journey so you can take full advantage of the helps and suggestions. Well worth the investment!

Mother of the Bride: Refreshment and Wisdom for the Mother of the Bride is a book that any mother of the bride can benefit from. It has tips and helpful suggestions for pulling the big day together including worksheets that provide a list of questions for your vendors and suggestions on what to ask your vendor's references. More importantly, it gives a wonderful perspective on all the relationships and interactions among family and friends during the preparations through completion of the wedding day. It is a wonderful reminder that even though you are working to provide your daughter her dream day the process is just as important as the outcome because you are building treasured memories. The hard cover book is beautiful for yourself as a keepsake or as a gift for your MOB friends and family.

Mother of the Bride - Refreshment and Wisdom for the Mother of the Bride is a delightful book! The personal stories are charming and allow you to feel the ups and downs of being an MOB (mother of the bride). It is refreshing to read the honesty of both the struggles and the joys that occur during the wedding planning process. There are great suggestions for personal pampering as well as pages for journaling your own experience. The book itself is also lovely. Each chapter has the pretty brooch from the front cover and it makes you smile every time! Also, after searching for a bookmark in my house, I was pleasantly surprised to find a ribbon bookmark in the book!
