Wedding planning is, to say the least, HECTIC! There are so many different things to consider and, often, so many PEOPLE to consider when planning each an every detail of your wedding. Ms. Howe's book is an excellent step-by-step guide that will keep any bride-to-be calm and confident as she works toward "The Big Day". It has all the necessary checklists, reminds us of each detail that may otherwise be overlooked, and provides space for a bride (or her fiance) to write notes about her hopes and specifications for the perfect wedding. If you were just given an engagement ring, treat yourself to this excellent guide! :)
The previous reviewer obviously hasn't read this book or they would know that it's highly relevant to US, and was written by an author who is in fact British, not Australian. And at almost 300 pages I wouldn't call it `brief' - any longer and I couldn't fit it in my handbag.Personally I found this book a fantastic help in organizing my wedding here in the US, but more importantly it's receiving great reviews in the US and the UK, and even The New York Times has sung its praises. I would really recommend it to any bride searching for a fun, stress-free approach to wedding planning and lots of clever cost saving tips.
Reading Jessica's new book was an absolute pleasure. Seldom does a how-to book make one feel whimsical, but this valuable kit proved humorous and uplifting even while providing confidence and assurance for tackling the multitude of tasks associated with wedding planning and production. The books is a thorough, organized, sequential, witty, knowledgeable, beautiful and Joyful how-to manual.I wish we'd had a copy when my daughter announced her engagement in 2006. Jam-packed with ideas and suggestions for every wedding, large or small, each planning phase or subject addressed in the book concludes with a checklist and space for note taking. I highly recommend The One Stop Wedding Kit for any bride. A fantastic congratulatory gift for all newly-engaged couples, or for mothers of the bride.
This book is just fantastic! It covers everything you need to know in order to have the exact wedding of your dreams - whether it be a huge spectacular affair or a beautiful intimate ceremony with a few loved ones. It covers topics that I would never have even considered with fabulous ideas to suit every budget.Whether you have been dreaming of your wedding day your whole life or have no idea where to start, this book covers everything you need to know in a fun and upbeat style which absolute anyone can relate to! Features like the checklist of questions to ask wedding planners saved me plenty of time and took alot of pressure off. With helpful tips and practical advice this is a great book to read!I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone!
This was a great book! We had a limited budget and I loved all the creative cost saving ideas. Other books were either too old fashioned in their wedding ideas or at the other extreme, too modern and wacky. This was great at helping us design a modern yet stylish wedding. Highly recommend it. Also I'm from the UK but my spouse is from the USA and we both thought this book would work great in either country.
As a nervous father-of-the-bride, navigating in uncharted waters, I naturally wanted everything to be perfect, since I have only one daughter, This book fulfilled my every desire. It is incredibly comprehensive and leaves out nothing. I would highly recommend this volume to anyone planning this life-changing event. Paul Svendsen
This great little book made planning my California wedding a breeze! It was much better than other wedding books because it encouraged me not just to PLAN a wedding but to actually CREATE one from the ground up, with every detail and magical touch that's involved in making it a special, unique day.The tips, ideas and advice this book opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. In particular I loved all the wonderful ideas for outdoor weddings, totally inspiring and so easy to do! Without this book I'm sure my big day wouldn't have been the amazing success it was.
I cannot fault this book, being an admirer of people who want to deliver dreams to all brides and not only just those lucky enough to be able to afford them..I have been impacted by the content and impressed by the mind behind it.. this book should be firmly entrenched in the handbag of all Brides/Grooms to be. to update a quote from my favourite author" it will be a truth universally acknowledged that any bride of any fortune MUST be in want of this book.
