I’ve read almost all of the other Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbooks, so when I saw this one listed on BookMooch, I wanted it.

I’ve never had a wedding of my own. I never plan to have a wedding of my own, so I’ll probably never use the advice offered in this book.

This is maybe the least funny Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook I’ve read. (Well, maybe the one about golf was less funny. I don’t really remember much about the one about golf.) In any case, this volume about weddings didn’t off

If my DJ doesn't show up, I'm definitely driving a car in the venue for a bumping sound system. Pretty funny book.

This book was a quick read and some of the categories/answers were hilarious. I rated a 3 because I expected much of the book to be realistic, but to me it was mostly humor. There were some good tips on how to get stains out of dresses and deal with day of pimples. But I was a little disappointed in the fact that most of the tips for getting money to pay for the wedding were along the lines of "enlist corporate sponsors and put their logo on your wedding dress" or "raffle off the opportunity to ...more

Mostly wild fantasy and a few really fringe suggestions (this is a series that probably published too much too fast), but a few helpful suggestions and a nice reminder that we're not alone in our concerns!

It ate my review! HOW DARE IT! Basically, I just said that I find this type of book amusing.. and that I'm hella never getting married. And that last minute wedding dresses made of toilet paper are lame- probably lamer than just wearing like.. jeans. or going nude. At least then people would remember your wedding. But this did have some legitimately handy tips.. though I can't stress this enough: I WILL NOT EVER HAVE A WEDDING. They are lame as shit.

If any social convention deserves a Worst-Case Scenario Guide, it's the wedding. It's a source of stress for all involved, especially the bride and groom, so who wouldn't avail themselves of this quick and informing read. The authors mix practical advice and quick-fix philosophy with a subtle dose of tongue-in-cheek humor. Read if you or your friends are about to be married: you just might be able to save their special day

Recommends it for: anyone planning a wedding
Recommended to Brandice by: Carmen
This was a really funny read that actually contained REALLY ingenius tips for surviving wedding catastrophes (thankfully, I didn't need to use any of them, but I took this book with us to our destination wedding and made sure I knew where it was at all times). I'm grateful to the former bride who passed it on!

I got this for my cousin and his fiancee, but of course I had to read it first. I thought it was a joke book, like a gag gift, but actually it's brilliant. It has all sorts of useful tips. Definitely recommend for anyone who's planning to get married soon.

This was just a great book to make brides feel better about accidents that could (but probably not) happen at a wedding.

Sometimes amusing but with a lot of helpful information, actually.
