If like me you are a push over, and never had the dream of have a wedding, but have now found your prince charming, this book is a MUST READ THE MOMENT YOU ARE ENGAGED!!!

recommended for pushover, NON-BRIDEZILLA brides.

I think the book is very helpful, especially if you've really never helped plan a wedding before. Gave really good, honest advice. It covered pretty much every aspect. I'd recommend to anyone planning a wedding!

A fair bit of common sense, but also some useful pointers on dealing with tricky scenarios that aren't as obvious. Tips are clearly laid out for easy browsing.

good for wedding planning big or small. most important tip: don't forget to thank everyone and make rounds at the reception.
