**** Please don't be intimidated by the size of this one. Feel free to trim or reduce to the size you feel comfortable with. For example, you may just wish to tell us your color scheme instead of reading books for it. Just pick what part you want to read and fill in what you don't with what your choice would be. This is supposed to be fun and it should be catered to your preferences. So have fun and enjoy!

The first item on the agenda is to decided who is getting married. Are you acting as the wedding planner/match maker for this event or one of the actual participants? Are you creating the wedding of the century for you or for two of your favorite book characters whom if they only had the same author writing them would surely have gotten together.

- Read 1 or more books which include your favorite romance hero and/or heroine (depending on your role in this ceremony) or do an optional spell-it-out of the character's name (first, last, or full). Sorry guys this one only gets one guy and one girl since well, bigamy is illegal.

The second item on the agenda is to pick the oh so important wedding dress/Tux.

- You may pick one or more books that have a 'to die for' dress/suit you fell in love with on the cover, or the title has a dress/outfit in the title (example The Bride Wore Black) or do a spell-it-out challenge using the color of your dress, name of the color you choose, etc.
 
The third item on you agenda is to pick your rings.

- read one or books depending on how you'll do this portion. You may read a book with wedding bands on the cover or do a spell-it-out challenge of the the material that make up your rings-- G*O*L*D, S*I*L*V*E*R, etc
 Photobucket
The fourth item on the agenda is to pick out the color scheme for your wedding. You may want to keep in mind the color you want for your flowers, the color you want for your bridesmaid's dresses, or the color of the groom's eyes.

- For this read one or more books with the colors in the title or one or more books that correspond to the colors in your scheme or do a spell-it-out of your colors.

Example of a spell-it-out:
R: Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr (Title)
E: Edward from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (Character's Name)
D: Cat with an Emerald Eye - Carole Nelson Douglas (Author's Last Name)

 Untitled photo Untitled-12.jpg

Fifthly, choose your bridal bouquet.

- Read one of more books which
* include the color(s) or names of the flowers in your bridal bouquet
* opt for a spell-it-out of what you'd like
* opt to read a book with a picture of what you'd like for your bridal bouquet on the cover

 
The sixth item on the agenda is to choose your wedding cake.

-Read one of more book that
* describes the color and/or flavor of your cake
* with a cake you like on the cover or the word 'cake' in the title
(Spell-it-outs are as always, acceptable)
 Untitled
The seventh item on your agenda is to select a keepsake for you and your spouse. Mine were a set of glasses that had the date of our wedding and names etched on them. (This one is optional)

- Read a book with a picture of it on the cover or in the title.

 
The eighth item on the agenda is to pick your mode of transportation.

- Read 1 or more books which contain some means of transportation on the cover on in the book that you'd like to ride away in after the wedding. You may, if you like, do a spell-it-out challenge.
 
The ninth item on the agenda is to pick your song for the first dance.

- You may choose one or more books with couple dancing on the cover, have dancing or opt to do our ever popular spell-it-out challenge of your favorite song.

 
The tenth item on the agenda is to pick an entree or restaurant for the reception.

- You may choose one or more books
* with a restaurant, feast, dinner item, or food item on the cover (pizza, chicken kiev, ham, etc)
* that have pictures of sit down dinners on the covers
* which will be used to do a spell-it-out of your favorite food entree.
                  
Lastly, pick your honeymoon destination.

- You may pick a book with
* your honeymoon destination on the cover
* the name of your destination in the title
* do a spell-it-out challenge.

Lol please do steal it! I steal ideas all the time ;-)

I have been eyeing these event planning challenges for a long time, meaning to jump in one day. Once I saw the wedding planning, I got excited knowing I could experience wedding planning fun all over again without having to get divorced. ;-)

Thanks Julianne, I am trying to fit in books I already need to read for other challenges into this one, but if I don't find anything else, maybe I will use this, it sounds interesting. :)

Thanks Lisa Kay, I did not have free reign of my choices, since I already have too many books planned to read, but I managed to fit them in all quite nicely. :)

Rachael C. (norcalbibliophile) Dragana, I love your Something Old/New/Borrowed/Blue idea!!! If I could read faster (or quit my job, thus expanding the amount of time available to read!), I would totally steal your idea!!!!

Dragana (diaryofthebookdragon) I totally understand. I would not dare to add them either in normal situation, but I just quit my job, and I am starting to work on a new one in July so I have a lot of free time in June. :D

What an exciting and busy time for you. Can't imagine how I'll react when one of my little ones gets married. At least I have plenty of time before that happens.

I own that book and need to read it. I got a new bookcase and I think it's on there somewhere. I had pulled it intending to read it and when I started the process of moving my books, it got mixed in with the others. Darn.

Julianne | 63 comments It was pretty funny, they get very defensive about these things. When I look at eye candy pictures they ask my things like "Do you like him better than Dad?"...hehe
