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.

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!!

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!!

If You Like Lists - You Will Like This Book ! I am planning a wedding for next summer, and I like to be organized. My fulltime job taking up most of my time, so I needed help planning my wedding. This book has lists and checklists for everything, which is why I love it!
RubyTanger More than 1 year ago
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.
BriannnaVito More than 1 year ago
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.

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.
GeorgiaBaker More than 1 year ago
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.

This Book Saved Me Atleast A Thousand Dollars ! If your planning your own fabulous wedding, then you need to purchase this book. It helped me so much. From the design of my wedding ceremony program to choosing a photographer this book covers everything. Wedding planners today cost so much money, but with the money I saved we could afford a honeymoon.

Great Book for Avoiding Wedding Scams. The advice is useful and helpful. The Author Angela descibes many ways save money with giving up quality. The bridal industry is full of SCAMS. Vendors looking to cash in on Brides emotions. So this book lets you know what to watch for and questions to ask to AVOID being a WEDDING VICTOM.

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!

All the lists and templetes are here. I love how this book has ready to use templetes for invitations, managing guest lists, time schedule, ceremony program, and more. It also has lists of music to use, food menu ideas, a ready to use seating chart, and it helps you set and stick to your wedding budget. Great guide. Must read!

Don't Get Married Without It. I thought I know everything about planning my own wedding, so I almost wasn't going to buy this book. The price was right, so I thought "why not?" so I bought this book. Believe me, there are so mant great and important things in this book that I never even thought of. So much valuable information, from dress buying, site selections, and so many great lists! I would have never thought of half of what she has in her lists. A must read for all brides.
JennyLania More than 1 year ago
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.

Add Pizzazz to Your Wedding with The Busy Brides Bible! I just got engaged for Christmas and my mother purchased this book for me. I thought I didn't need help, but then I starting planning my wedding and was lost..... So I started reading The Busy Brides Bible. I love it, because Angela tells the truth. She doesn't sugar coat her thoughts, she tells it like it is. I am originally from NJ, so I relate to the way Angela writes. If you want a book that's full of fluff and sweetness this is not it. This book tells the Facts, like to "Keep in Mind that 30-40% of the guests invited will generally decline". Who knew that? So now I can invite more guests than I really want. As for the "Russian Style Food Service", that's the name. Don't take it to heart. It's like Italians being called Guidos. We don't take it to heart, because it's just our name... So If you want the Truth about the Wedding World then this book is for you. I love the section about adding PIZZAZZ to your Wedding, because I want all my guests thinking about my Wedding for years to come too........

I forgot to mention the book is full of lists and details for each step. It's a MUST READ BOOK before planning your own wedding.

This Fabulous Find was From FACEBOOK! I just got engaged for Christmas and then I viewed an Ad for this book on Facebook. I clicked on it and purchased it through Amazon. As soon as I received the book I read it from front to back. It was fun to read and Angela has lots of great advise. She even put her own wedding photograph in the book. So now I am on my way to planning my own fabulous wedding. I am going step by step through the wedding timeline and I hope to get married in May of 2012. I am also now friends with Angela Kear(Author) on Facebook and Twitter, where she posts wedding advise daily. So if you need a great wedding planning book this is the BEST ONE......
