Bookstore shelves brim with wedding guides, and while this one might not offer earth-shattering planning advice, it's got just about everything a future bride and groom need to prepare for the big day. Editor-in-chief Roney, along with the editors of The Knot magazine and TheKnot.com, share their extensive knowledge about weddings in this friendly, revised and updated volume. The book addresses the basics, the tiny details and the things that most young couples don't realize that they need to know--such as that it's better to put an even number of guests at each reception table, so that everyone has a partner for conversation. Among the chapters are tips to take couples from pre-engagement to post-honeymoon planning, snapshots and stories of real weddings and answers to wedding FAQs, as well as general advice. Hiring a black limo, for instance, the authors reveal, is 10% percent cheaper than hiring a white one, and wedding videos should be stored upright and away from electronic equipment. At first glance, this book's hundreds of pages might make the whole process seem even more overwhelming, but Roney offers a thorough, friendly one-stop guide.
