Publisher's Summary

The number of weddings is on the rise, but these days, most couples don't have the time to plan this special day. This audiobook was created to assist every bride and groom who needs to plan their big day by making a detailed checklist, including advice on transportation, locations, reception options, catering, protocol, photography, guest services, the dress, the groom's tux, the rings, the gifts, the cake, the best man and maid of honor, and ultimately, the wedding ceremony itself. Your special day does not have to be a nerve-wracking experience, even if you have a number of people whom you want to invite. It is the most important day of your life, after all, and you will want everything to be perfect.

This book contains proven steps and strategies to planning your wedding from ring selection and the expectations of family and friends, which should be your first priority before any other planning begins. The content in this book has also been written to reflect the most current wedding tips and advice, etiquette, ideas to personalize the wedding, how to set budget parameters outlining who will be paying for what, and how to create guest lists for seating, organize the catering, and further planning. In additional, this handy book also includes a checklist of things to do, detailed budget analysis, wedding party responsibilities, paying the vendors and other useful advice and tips. By keeping an eye on your budget as you go along, there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to save a substantial amount of money on your wedding.

Boring and not helpful

If you want to listen to a boring book that states the obvious, here it is. I've googled check lists and looking over that for 5 min is far more helpful than this book.

Happy wedding planning!

However.

Would you try another book from Sam Siv and/or Erin Fossa?

Sure. I think this had some good information. HOWEVER, the author constantly said one thing and then added "however" and said something different. After a while I began to count the "howevers" and found this terribly distracting,

Would you be willing to try another book from Sam Siv? Why or why not?

Sure. I think he has some good information.

Have you listened to any of Erin Fossa’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have never heard her before, so I have no basis for comparison. Her voice is pleasant.

Did Wedding Planning inspire you to do anything?

I stained and polyurethaned my ring-bearer box while listening to this.

The Most Annoying Audiobook in the World

Would you try another book from Sam Siv and/or Erin Fossa?

No. I found it to be incredibly annoying.

What was most disappointing about Sam Siv’s story?

Every other line was "it would NOT be good to do this, but it would be socially acceptable to do THIS." I wanted to use this as a way to get ideas, not to be restricted by the author's view of what is and what isn't acceptable.

Very helpful and unbiased input!

I've listened to the book at least 5 times during my planning process. It reminds me to do tasks along the way and it provides alternative options to consider.
