I bought this book since I am going to be in two wedding parties next year and the 3 review given rated it quite highly. The reality of it is that this book had a couple of pointers that weren't necessarily something you would think of as a bridesmaid, but only a couple. Most of the book is just "fluff" and the book is written in a modern "chic" cutesy style... which could get annoying at times. Bottom line if you have never been to a wedding in your adult life you can glean a few things from this book, otherwise I would suggest just getting a wedding book that covers most of the basics of weddings which will help you and the bride.I would suggest The Wedding Book: The Big Book for Your Big Day for more info that will help you and make sure to check for the updated edition if you want the most current suggestions. The price is about the same and you get a lot more info that will help both you and the bride.

I was a recent maid-of-honor in my best friends wedding. I ordered this book (after reading the reviews) to get some helpful and creative ideas for my role as "Lead" bridesmaid such as bridal showers, bachelorette party, gift ideas, special/touching/thoughtful moments, etc. This was a great purchase.I recommend that bridesmaids purchase this book EARLY.Or even... I recommend brides purchase this book for their bridesmaids EARLY.For example the book gives a list of outside-the-box bachelorette party ideas (which I really needed because our party was on a Wednesday and NOTHING is open on a Wednesday!) The list was very helpful!

This book was really helpful for me as first time maid of honor. Recommend it anyone get it so that they know what they are getting themselves in to. :)

This book was a super cute addition to add to my bridesmaid boxes I made to ask my girls to be in my line.The price was great! I had seen this book in a store somewhere and they were asking more than $20 for it so I am so glad I found it here!My girls think it is super cute and they are just reading it as a guideline more than an actual book to follow but it is so cute and clever!

I'm the MOH in my best friend's wedding. This book has tons of tips and helpful advice.

Great addition to my bridesmaid boxes :)

this book was so helpful when i was helping my friend with her wedding! it's so nice to have something to turn to and prevent me from going crazy!

I have no idea what I'm doing, but this book helped A LOT!
