I think it’s very sweet.  Definitely put a personal inscription to each bridesmaid on the inside.

That book always makes me cry!

I think it’s very cute. You could write them each a little heartfelt message inside the cover. Are you thinking of doing any accessories or anything along with it?

I love the giving tree! Include a very heartfelt letter inside. Are you giving them this in addition to anything else? or just the book?

Oh heck it’s part of an apple gift set? Very befitting =]

I voted nice book, bad gift, but I take that back now that I know it is part of an apple gift set. I thought you were only giving them the book.

Ha!  Cat Stevens kills me too!  Have you seen ‘Harold and Maude’?  Good god, the waterworks that always gets from me!

I love the apple-themed gift set.  I want one now 🙂

I find that book incredibly sad and depressing so I wouldn’t give it as a gift or want to recieve it but I know not eveyone has that reaction to it.

Oh, I wish I could change my vote now!  I thought you meant to give it by itself, in which case I thought it was “nice book, bad gift” but as a part of a set I think it’s a great idea!
