If you hate the color white, think roses are ugly, and gag at tulle; then this is your bridal guide! For brides to be who think outside the box, this guide to everything bridal will help organize your erratic pre-wedding thoughts. The pretty in pink cover is deceptive since everything inside is geared toward the "other" bride category. It walks you through planning, places and spaces, ambiance, ceremony, THE DRESS, accessories and everything in between. By far the most useful in my own bridal planning, it was offered to me by my best friend after her torturous battle with bridal magazines and books that just didn't relate to her and her unique style. It's full of useful information, do's and don't of wedding planning and lots of those great little pocket folders to stuff your piles of little tiny papers with your ideas on them. A wedding planner may not be the place to take life advice from, but chapter 7 contains lots of great tips on how to handle your fiance during the planning process and how to take a step back and chill when things become overwhelming. I plan on passing this book along to my other friends as they get on that train to marriage land. This is a great buy for any woman out there who marches to her own tune and wants her wedding to reflect her inner self.
