COngrats to your friend, I can tell you that I love my planner it’s a pinka dn white 3 ring binder which has SO helped with adding in all those pictures I love and want to show my photographer, and to keep track with files of all my papers I’ve colleceted for various reasons…

Okay it’s called

Tying The Knot

The Complete Wedding Organizer

I don’t know exactly who it’s made by but if you google that phrase or look on Amazon.com you will find it – thats how I did.


Congrats again!

"Perfect Wedding Details" by Maria McBride has beautiful photos and great instructions for little details. It’s a lovely book, and my favorite planning resource.

I love love love Jo Gartin’s book of inspirations. And let’s not forget about Preston Bailey’s newest book aptly titled "Inspirations"

The best pracitcal book for really planning a wedding is Bridal Bargains; Serets to Throwing A Fantastic Wedding on a Realistic Budget – http://www.amazon.com/Bridal-Bargains-8th-fantastic-realistic/dp/1889392227/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1197926152&sr=8-1

It really prepared me when I was talking to vendors…I knew what to expect, I knew what the important questions were to ask and more importantly, I knew the type of scams that were out there and how to avoid them. I especially think the section on bridal gowns was really important b/c some dress stores can be pretty evil with the things they tell brides to get them to buy a dress.  You can read all the rave reviews on amazon.

The other coffee table books with pretty pictures of cakes, flowers, receptions and such are nice but honestly you can browse through the web and get just as many good idea photos. You can also check them all out at the library so after the wedding is over you wont’ be stuck with 5 books on wedding flowers.

when i got engaged, my friends got me wedding magazine subscriptions which are helpful.  i think martha stewart weddings is the best one.

Bridal Bargains, hands down. So many of the bridal books repeat themselves and don’t offer any new information from what you can get for free on the internet. (JMHO)

A friend of mine got me the "Anti-bride wedding planner", which has suited us very well.
