I purchased this book as a gift for a recently engaged friend. She has told me on more than one occasion that it has been the single most useful resource for her wedding planning. She found the advice to be insightful and the suggestions sensible. I got the opportunity to look over the book myself recently, and I agree with her in that the book manages to inspire and encourage creativity while maintaining a level of practicality. A lot of wedding planning books and "look books" are full of gorgeous ideas that are completely out of reach (financially) for most couples. One of our favorite things about this book is that it's a great resource for anyone planning a wedding, no matter the budget.
I initially saw this book in a bookstore but it was $40.00 and I thought that was a little too steep for my budget. So I naturally went on and purchased it for $26! Such a great deal. Not only does it have amazing pictures, but for every part of your wedding, it gives a check list and how long you should give yourself to accomplish a task. Amazing. This will be glued to my side throughout my entire planning process. Great work, The Knot!
I gave this as a gift to my brother's fiance when they announced their engagement. I was given a lot of instructional type wedding guide gifts when I was getting married, and they were kind of overwhelming and had a lot of advice I didn't have use for, even when planning my own wedding. This book is great because it's all pictures, just tons of inspiring ideas for a wedding; decor, flowers, cake, etc. While a guide detailing traditions, budgeting, and timing is useful, I think this is more fun for a newly engaged bride-to-be to pour over. It allows for a little excitement before the stressful side of planning sets in. The Knot is a well-respected, very tasteful and fun website for wedding planning, so I knew the book would have great photography, and classic as well as current trends. I tried to flip through it as best I could without bending it before gifting and the pictures were all beautiful. The one I received was hard bound. If you're a wedding planner, I'd highly recommend this for the bride and groom to look over, to give you ideas of what they want in their wedding. The same goes for mothers, sisters, bridesmaids to help the bride do her planning.
Book was well presented. Lots of interesting ideas. Beautiful combination of vibrant colours. Design are practical and refreshing. Would recommend this book to any Would- be- couple.
This book is full of beautiful, large, inspiring pictures. My mom was blown away. I, however, was not as impressed. That's probably because I have seen many of these pictures (or very similar ones) on The Knot's website. However, I have spent a lot of time browsing their site. Also, there is more writing in the book than I expected. Regardless, if you're looking for a great source for gorgeous inspiration, this is the book for you. Another bonus is that there are some budget-friendly ideas included, unlike many of the other wedding "picture books." If you have already done a lot of research online, you can skip this one because you'll just see more of the same. If you just enjoy looking at wedding books like I do, this is a great addition to your collection.
The Best Wedding Lookbook was the hit gift that my wife gave to the daugher of her best friend. Mothers and daughers alike passed it around and made notes to buy one for themselves when their daughters got married.
I thought this book was going to be more helpful but I found it to be completely useless. With the internet, why would you even need this book that included everything that is online. I ended up returning this for something more useful.
Great book to get couples looking & deciding on ideas for their big day before they get inundated by industry questions & ideas from others. This book helps them think of themselves & make their day unique to them.
