If you have been dreaming of your perfect wedding since you were a little kid, this book may not be for you. However, if you are clueless about where to start planning a wedding, and have many questions you don't know whom to ask, start with this book. It is full of useful and very relevant information that other books with glossy pictures don't include. Most of all the book makes sense...

As with most of the 'For Dummies' books, Wedding Planning for Dummies is a great resource for wedding information for Brides and Grooms. I consider it to be used as a reference book versus trying to read it from beginning to end. It is a great way to make sure that you covered all ground when planning your wedding. It is also a great supplemental source in cases where a bride/broom may be only to afford a day of planner, but are tasked with planning the wedding themselves.

Funny, smart, and really, really helpful. A friend gave me this and I keep it on me at all times. My wedding is in 6 months and it is great to have the best working with me on the millions of details.
