I give this three stars because as it turns out, it's not going to be very useful for our wedding. It's still 18 months out and we already have the venue, DJ, photographer, florist small wedding party. This binder is really for people starting from scratch. A lot of text stating the obvious. This book spends a lot of time trying to be "cute." All the chapters are titled after very gay pop songs and the first chapter talks about throwing a "kiki." Maybe I'm not gay enough for this wedding planner, but not all us gay men know or care what a "kiki" is, nor do we plan all of our events based around gay friendly pop songs. I would have liked something a little more straight forward (no pun intended) and just to the point of planning a wedding. I'm thinking most gay men don't need a lot of advice from their wedding planning binder about how to plan a wedding. I think I would have appreciated more of a workbook, ledger, and less of a tongue and cheek take on gay wedding planning. I could have done without all of the cliches. I'm sure this will suit someone's needs, just not ours. Sent it back today.

I LOVE this book! What I love most is it's a guide to having the wedding YOU want. It's not about a "by the book" wedding. It asks you the important questions and then helps you lay out a plan, gives logistical tips and organization know-how so you can get exactly what you want out of your wedding day. Plus it's hilariously written, well designed and the perfect size (not too big!). I can't recommend it highly enough!!!! Get it today :)

We bought our copy used and it was certainly worth the price paid. Budgeting, creating new traditions where Hetero traditions just don't make sense and staying on track with the timeline of when things should be done, was very helpful.

I don't know what we would have done without this book when we were planning our wedding. Neither my husband nor I spent much time thinking about our dream wedding when we were kids so when it came time to plan our wedding we had a hard time figuring out what we wanted to do and how to pull it all off. Until we found this book. It's filled with humor and practical advice to insure that your big day goes off without a hitch. If you're recently engaged do yourself a favor and pick up a copy... it's like having a funny and smart wedding planner by your side through every step of the wedding planning process. If you're looking for a good book to get a newly engaged gay couple look no further.

The first part of the kindle book has a link that reads it goes to a webpage that has worksheets to help you. It is in fact a page to purchase the book in hardback. The writer works hard at being cute. I'd rather it be less folksy. The idea of getting marry is fun AND serious. I felt like the writer was making it like a of the cuff joke. My partner and I were hoping to find some serious help in planning a gay wedding. Instead we found the writing making light of our wedding. While a time to party we are serious about it enough to have a wedding service. That the link to a page that is for purchasing the book all over again shows the publication is not ready. I would not suggest this book to a friend or family member. Disappointed.

I was very disappointed with this book. A lot of what was written seemed like a very antiquated idea of how a "gay" wedding should be. While there were a few aspects of the book I liked. (The checklists was very helpful.) Mostly though it just seemed to give you a brief summary of a topic with a few sarcastic comments and moved on the next. Nothing was very in-depth or thorough. I was looking forward to having a book that I felt would help me plan my "same-sex" wedding but it just wasn't very helpful. I ended using "The Knot Book of Wedding Lists" 98% of the time. It was more helpful and cheaper.

My now husband and I purchased this"bible" about 8 months before our wedding and could not be more grateful that we did. Every single detail is thought out for you. There's no guessing when you should do something because the outline is so thoroughly thougt out for you which is exactly what I wanted. Someone to tell me what to do. No guessing! It's true that gay or not this book is perfect for planning a wedding but of course is super fabulous for us gays!! I'm just so thankful to have purchased this book. Jason,the author, besides beeing married himself is one of the top wedding planners in NYC so you know your in good hands!
