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.

Customer Reviews

Easy read and some great ideas!
Theresa A. Norris
It also seemed that many of the scenarios and suggestions were not necessarily things that the mother of the groom would be responsible for.
A. Mazzini
Everything, from pre-planning to the wedding weekend, is included in this book.

Mother of the Groom by Sharon Naylor is a godsend for the woman whose son is about to be married and who wants to do the "right thing." How to chose a dress (even plus size), what to offer to pay for, and many other delightful and helpful facts are spelled out with wit and style. I found myself consulting Mother of the Groom over and over as our son's wedding approached. Sharon's wonderful insights helped make his wedding day extra special.

FINALLY! A comprehensive resource for the mother of the groom. I was sure I was destined to have only the old adage "wear a beige dress and keep your mouth shut" as my only advice. But thanks to Ms. Naylor, I have lists and charts and an entire appendix full of internet sites to refer to in my planning. Thank you for coming to the aid of grooms' mothers everywhere!

After relying heavily on Sharon Naylor's "Mother of the Bride" book for my daugher's wedding last year, I am just as impressed with her new book just in time for my son's wedding next summer. Great, practical tips for an odd situation as an MOG.

I am so excited about being the Mother of the Groom for the first and only time in my life. I immediately ordered this book in the hopes of doing everything right. We are in different states and I want to be involved as much as possible without interfering. This book mentions the fact that mother and son could be in different states, but gives no useful advice as to how she can be of assistance in that regard. It also seemed that many of the scenarios and suggestions were not necessarily things that the mother of the groom would be responsible for. It seemed that according to this book she is involved in everything. It also made it sound as if every bride is a Bridezilla and that is certainly not the case in our wedding, nor is the mother of the bride disagreeable. I would pass on this one. I am going to try to find something that "hits the mark".

This book is pretty basic and could definitely be a book for mothers of the bride. It is all the typical information that books for mothers of the bride would contain. I haven't read any of the author's other books, but I feel certain that this information was just cut and pasted from a book for brides or mothers of the bride.

There is very little information specifically for mothers of the groom. I especially wanted information on rehearsal dinners (creative ideas, do's and don't's, proper etiquette, etc.), but there was not a whole lot of information on the subject. I should have returned the book but waited too long.

Bought this for my Mother In Law to be to give her subtle hints about how a wedding is done.

She read it and loved it! And has since been more understanding about what I want for my wedding.

This book is wonderful! I don't think you could make a mistake after reading it. I was a first time Mother of the Groom and didn't want to make a mistake. Sharon gives me all of the information I was going to need. Her list of web sites and vendors is very helpful. Her timelines and count down schedules are invaluable. If you are a mother of the groom this is a must have!
