K.I.S.S. Guide to Planning a Wedding

Your wedding day will be one of the most special days of your life, and it’s important that it is the day you want it to be. After all, the most entertaining and memorable weddings are usually the most personal occasions.

Planning a wedding offers a terrific opportunity to weave in treasured cultural traditions, revisit a beloved locale, decorate with your favorite colors, flowers and themes, wear gorgeous clothes, enjoy luscious foods and music, and welcome friends and family members. In short, a wedding is a fabulous opportunity to have fun! Yet all too often a wedding becomes a power struggle between “shoulds” and “wants.” Your mother demands you wear white; you want to wear red. Your father-in-law wants to invite all of his business associates and 20 of his old college buddies; you’d like an intimate ceremony. Your grandparents want a traditional church ceremony; you want to write your own vows and get hitched at midnight in your friend’s penthouse. Or perhaps you’ve read some ideas in a bridal magazine suggesting you do x, y and z, when all you’ve ever longed to do was a, b, and c. It can be a frustrating business, getting married.

The K.I.S.S. Guide to Planning a Wedding (DK Publishing) helps you weed though the “shoulds” and incorporate the “wants,” so you can have the nuptials of your dreams. Whether it’s a picnic ceremony atop a daisy-covered hill, a traditional church wedding, a low-key elopement, or something else entirely, this book shows you how to create a wedding that is as unique as your love. It doesn’t matter if this is your first marriage or your fifth, whether your engagement is long or you want to get married next week, or if your budget is tiny or unlimited, K.I.S.S. Guide to Planning a Wedding offers practical, how-to advice on every aspect of getting married, starting with your engagement and then covering every other matrimonial topic.
