How I Planned Your Wedding
My son recently became engaged and so a lot of talk now is centered around "THE WEDDING." My daughter brought this home from work at the library and thought it would be fun to read. Now, I am not the mother of the bride, but we are very close. In fact, she asked me to come along when she picked out her wedding gown, which I was quite honored, as a lot of future mother-in-laws are not included in this event. It was so much fun, like Say Yes to the Dress (one of our favorite shows), but without Randy. If you don't watch this, you really should.
Anyways, this book was co-written by New York Times bestselling author, Susan Wiggs, and her daughter Elizabeth when Elizabeth became engaged. They alternate chapters, although the majority of it was written by Elizabeth, who also has a very funny blog, www.IAmTheBeholder.com. Susan and Elizabeth are mother and daughter and best friends and Elizabeth has always shared everything with her mom, so of course her wedding was also a joint venture.
Normally a book about wedding planning is more of a how-to manual, but this was written as a story with wedding details thrown in. It was a very enjoyable read and I loved hearing about their tight mother-daughter bond! Even if you are not in the middle of planning "THE WEDDING", you will love this book.
