Editorial Reviews

Review

"Leslie Milk knows that every mother of the bride is like a four-star general. She plans the strategy, defends the deficit, dispatches the troops, and negotiates the peace. For any mother of the bride who wants to declare victory on the day of the wedding, this book is MUST reading." -- Kitty Kelley, New York Times bestselling author of The Family: The Real Story Behind the Bush Dynasty

"Leslie Milk has written a wonderful and practical book for mothers. But it's not just for mothers. Don't be confused. Fathers also would do well to read this book. Indeed, father must read this book. I did, and learned a great deal about a truly important subject. And beyond that, it's a fast and fun read." --Wolf Blitzer, host of CNN's Wolf Blitzer Reports

This book is the best! Leslie Milk is clever, funny and extremely informative. I not only learned more from this book than the more formal bridal book I purchased but had some good laughs too. She makes such sense and covers everything you need to know. Actually my daughter read it, my husband read it after hearing my many references to it, and I ended up ordering more copies to give as gifts. This is a must have book for mom's of brides and actually brides too.

I orginally bought this book for my mother (bride's mother) but it was just so cute and clever that I purchased it for the Groom's mother. For Brides: It imforms your mothers of their role without hurting their feelings. My mom read it in 2 days and she said she really connected with it and her role in my wedding. But in a nice, none confrontational way.

This book is for any mother of a bride, past, present or future. Somewhere, in this diary of sorts, you will find a similar connection with author Leslie Milk's own experience with her daughter's wedding from engagement to reception party. She also writes other mother-of- the bride stories along with tips and suggestions to switch to plan B when Plan A doesn't seem to be working. The reality checks at the end of each short chapter could have been omitted as they just didn't tickle this reviewers funny bone. Makes a nice gift for any mother or surrogate mother of the bride.

This book is full of wonderful advice and humor (to lighten this potentially stressful time). Leslie Milk has excellent guidelines along with real life stories to help brides and their mothers (and anyone who has to live with them) survive their wedding (and may be even with a smile!). Every bride should buy this book for herself and her mother!

When our daughter made me a first-time MOB this Christmas, she presented me with this book. While I enjoy good humor, only the James Harriot books (All Creatures Great and Small etc) had actually made me laugh out loud. Many passages in this book have had me laughing so hard I have literally cried. In addition, our execution of the Mother-Daughter Pre-Nup has saved me from unmitigated grief with my daughter about the dinner entres (among other things) at the venue she and her fiance have chosen which features nouvelle northern Italian cuisine. We're talking date sauce over pork chops and lemon zested brussel sprouts and leg of lamb with garbanzo beans here folks.

Amid a great deal of humor Leslie Milk dispenses pithy nuggets of great advice. This book would be a welcome volume especially for MOBs who have or need a sense of humor. MOGs would enjoy it too.

What a fun book -- great topics and stories for the "mother-of-the-bride". Bought the book for a friend and enjoyed reading through it. Now I am planning on giving it as a gift to several friends who soon will be a "mother-of-the-bride.

I loved this humorous, warm and loving book. It gave me insight to what I could expect, and it was always right on! The writing was sweet without being "sappy" and the advice was sage. If you are a Mother of the Bride, you will need this.
