Review By LAWonder10:

I truly wish I had this informative, well-organized book when my children were getting married! I have solace that I can pass it along in the future when my grandchildren marry. This would have saved us from some difficult situations!

The authors are incredibly talented and wise.  In this quick reference book, it outlines the important tasks that need to be addressed when planning a wedding. Regardless of the size of the guest list, social standing, financial situation, culture, etc., there are basic priorities that need to be addressed to avoid contention and stress. 

The authors have done a fabulous job in outlining the various aspects of a successful wedding, the difference in weddings of the past and present, and addressing issues many overlook in wedding planning. It also briefly gives real examples of situations they have dealt with through the years.

The book is well-written and interesting. It is truly informative.

For anyone planning a wedding, I believe this is a “Must Read” book.

The book is made with quality paper, illustrated beautifully by Shana Cinquegranta, and is well-bound.

I offer a Five Stars rating.

This is a complementary book sent to me with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review



Be sure to check out my Podcast Interview with them on my Podcast page. They were such a joy to chat with! They are truly remarkable women with so many years of combined experience.
