The Little White Book of Wedding Planning Wisdom
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
From engagement to honeymoon, this little book will provide you with all the basics to start planning your dream wedding.
The moments after accepting a marriage proposal are exciting and romantic, but they can also be overwhelming and sometimes even confusing. Immediately after sharing the news, brides are often bombarded with questions: Have you set a date? What are your colors? Who are your bridesmaids? Where will you register?
If you’re a bride-to-be who isn’t sure how to even begin answering those questions and others like them, or who has a head full of ideas but no way to organize them, The Little White Book of Wedding Planning Wisdom is the guide you need. This book will provide you with advice related to every step of the process—from announcing your engagement, to booking a venue, to choosing the perfect date. You will learn when to book florists, caterers, and entertainers—and which questions to ask them before you do so.
More than a simple manual, this book also features reflections and quotes from brides who share their own real-life experiences choosing their first songs, trying on one dress after another, and worrying about centerpieces, seating charts, and writing the perfect vows.
At a convenient size, The Little White Book of Wedding Planning Wisdom can be easily slipped into your purse to consult as you move from one appointment to another, whether you’re meeting with potential photographers, cake bakers, or jewelers.

Is this a team effort, or are you flying solo? Once the excitement is down to a dull roar and the news is (somewhat) old, it’s time to have a very important conversation with your partner. Though you may have already agreed on and announced a few details that you discussed pre-engagement (date, wedding party, colors, venue), the majority of the hardcore planning has not yet taken place. It’s vital you sit down with your partner and decide how involved each of you will be from this point forward.
skipping from subject to subject with different people, and without actually making any concrete plans, can get frustrating. For most of us, this is why now is not the time to start planning the wedding. Instead, it’s the time to get ready to start planning. This is when you figure out what you will need to do as the day approaches; it’s not the time to start checking off everything on the list.
