A valuable guide to planning a successful and satisfying wedding experience, it includes all the important topics couples need to deal with from the time they become engaged to the day they move into their first residence together. Subjects that are thoroughly covered include making arrangements for out-of-town guests, getting blood tests, obtaining a marriage license, mailing invitations, writing thank-you notes, bridal registry, planning a budget, gowns for attendants, premarital counseling, obtaining a temple recommend, receiving temple endowments, newspaper announcements, decorating the reception facility, making arrangements for gifts, packing bags for the honeymoon, sending thank-you notes, stocking the kitchen, opening a joint checking account, deciding on necessary expenses, scheduling events, planning a wedding budget, and much more.
When an engaged couple finishes reading this book, they will know almost everything they need to do to make their wedding and receptions as wonderful as they want them to be. Nothing is left out; nothing goes without explanation and direction. Couples who follow the advice given in this guide will find that planning their wedding is much less work than they might have imagined, and they will start down the road to matrimony with happy contentment rather than frustration and stress.
