In addition to being the wedding expert for GorgeouslyGreen.com, she is a columnist at Bridal Guide, Southern Bride, Polka Dot Bride, New Jersey Bride, and other top bridal sites, and has appeared as a wedding and entertaining expert on Good Morning America, Better TV, Get Married, ABC News, Primetime, Inside Edition, and more.

Sharon has always advised brides and grooms to prepare for the marriage, not just the wedding, and all of her books focus not just on planning details like designing a wedding cake or choosing a gown, but on the *relationships* that build between the couple and their in-laws, the relationships that may change between the couple and their single friends, and the relationships a couple can create between themselves and their wedding vendors. Weddings may be stressful to plan, but they don't have to create stress in your life. Sharon Naylor's 25+ years in the wedding industry have exposed her to so many different personality types trying to work together, she knows the kinds of clashes that can happen and she advises against every type of planning or communication mistake. The goal is, of course, a beautiful and personalized wedding day, but Sharon Naylor wants you to *enjoy* the process with the positive people you know, always taking the time to think about what's going *well* instead of what's still left to do or what's disappointing.

Sharon Naylor says she gravitated to wedding world because it's comprised of all of her favorite things: travel, gourmet food, floral design, fashion, photography, dance...and most importantly the gathering of far-flung friends and family to celebrate a happy occasion.

A recent newlywed, she lives in Morristown NJ with her husband Joe and she is currently the wedding spokesperson for several high-profile corporate brands.

I highly recommend this book to any hostess or mother of the bride. I am going up to West Point Military Academy this weekend to finalize preparations for my daughter's party. Details I never would have thought to ask, but certainly appear to be most important, were brought to my attention. There are also areas to document deposits and conversations with various vendors who will be hired for the party. I suggest that you write in pencil, because changes can always be erased. This is a remarkable guide to effectly carry out plans in a timely, correct fashion. I have browsed through books over the last few months. This has given me everything I need.
Great job, Sharon Naylor.

This book had been helpful to me as a "mother of the bride" to be in January, 2009. Even though my daughter is doing a very small, simple wedding, this book had answered some of my questions and I've passed the info on to her. Since I have 2 more daughters, I'll hold on to this one for quite awhile.

I bought this book for my mom as a gift. She absolutely loves it. I really like that a section was included for the bride to write an inscription the MOB. This publication has many great ideas and is very helpful. My future SIL bought this for her mom, too, and all of us girls skimmed though it and chatted about the bolded topics at Thanksgiving. It was so much fun!

My daughter was married in June, 2008 and I found this book to be a great reference! There are so many details that you need to keep track of, especially when you want the day to be perfect for your daughter! I kept track of everything in this little book, and had all of the phone numbers and information I needed at my fingertips. My daugther had a pretty large outdoor wedding at our home (which the author does not recommend), but the tips really helped make sure all details were attended to including the valet parking!

Great book if you want to make the day a memorable day for you and your daugther.....for all of the right reasons!

This book is wonderful! I don't think you could make a mistake after reading it. Sharon gives you information, schedules, vendors and everything else you may or may not think of. I am buying it for my friends whose daughters are getting married I liked it so much.
