    Bought this for my dad as my wedding planning started to get rolling and he really liked the book. He said it made some great pointers and had useful tips... but something to be aware of is that this book leans towards the more traditional wedding and its apparently written from the perspective of an English wedding. My dad said at least now he's more aware of converting British pounds to US dollars!

    This is a very good book and can "stand alone". I would suggest however that you combine it with one or two other sources, to get a balanced perspective. It is very detailed (occasionally exhaustively so) but you can alway skip to the areas you wish to focus on. It includes a section thanking the Mother of the Bride which is not included in some of the other sources and, in my opinion, is essential (if appropriate) in the FOB speech.
