The Lifetime Wedding Planner

Lifetime Press, Manufactured by Hyperion Books $24.95 (272p) ISBN 978-0-7868-6943-5
A fairytale wedding doesn't fall into place with the flip of a magic wand-that's why brides rely on step-by-step guides like this one to help them through the planning process. From announcing an engagement to hosting a post-wedding brunch, for brides who want a traditional to-do, almost every imaginable facet of wedding preparation is touched upon in this volume. In addition to practical components like a planning timeline, guest list templates and budget worksheets, there are friendly tips on maintaining sanity, ideas for cutting costs, interview cheat sheets for every vendor and excerpts from popular wedding readings. No bride could possibly think of all these details-the meaning of stephanotis, the possibility of a corkage fee, the merits of a cocktail reception-without a little help. Compared to other books in this genre, this isn't particularly hip, stylish or trendy, but it does cover the basics very thoroughly and in an affable way. It's all packaged in a spiral-bound planner with color photos and pockets for piles of contracts and keepsakes.
