As an upcoming bride, I've had mixed feelings about the importance of a wedding planner vs the price of the planner and have read over a dozen wedding planning guides/etiquette books in the past year. Simultaneously, I have begun following David Tutera's work as a celebrity wedding planner and his first two seasons of My Fair Wedding on WEtv. Needless to say, when this book hit the shelves I was running to purchase it! David does an excellent job of keeping the book lighthearted, amusing and very personal. It feels as though he he's talking to you in his office (or at the spa over mani-pedis). The chronology which the book follows is an excellent approach to planning likely the BIGGEST PARTY of you life. He doesn't overkill some subjects while jumping over others with too little details. He touches on everything from wedding registry do's and don'ts to the moment you are departing your reception and the important reminders of the purpose of the event and all of the planning. I especially appreciate his approach to handling funding/finances and budgets. Although he is a CELEBRITY wedding planner I found his sensitivity to financing your wedding especially tactical. He uses an appropriately suited budget allocation method to assist the bride/groom with determining how best to allocate your funds and offers insides on ways to save in order to splurge on other elements of your wedding. This was a huge BONUS!

The only regret I had in reading this book was that I didnt have it the day after I got engaged (Feb 2009), however having it with a little less than a year to go, was excellent timing all the same. The pre-planning advice David offers at the start of the book is invaluable.

OMG! I was so excited when I got this book. I ripped it out the package, flipped through it and to my dismay there were no pictures! I didnt realize the type of book this was, I only saw David Tutera and had to have it! Much to my suprise though, this was an EXCELLENT and VERY HELPFUL book. I could not put it down. The book was EASY TO READ and I felt like David was TALKING DIRECTLY to me. It was as if I were on his show My Fair Wedding(only before all the bad decor and decision-making.)
My fiance' and I are planning a May 2012 wedding and I wanted to have as much time as possible to plan the wedding of our dreams without breaking the bank. I know I will reference this book many, many times over the next two years. Good luck to all you brides out there and you simply MUST read this book!

I've been engaged for about a year now and I have recently begun the long process of planning my Big Day. I have never planned a wedding before, so I didn't have a clue as to where to begin or what pointers I needed to know. After purchasing David Tutera's new book, Big White Book of Weddings, I read right through it and became CONFIDENT in how to prepare for my wedding day. His book was EXTREMELY helpful and definately lessened my stress. He touched on everything that crosses a brides mind, from fashion to balancing every vendor on the right scale....and most importantly BUDGETING! I didn't know the first thing in how to budget what for my wedding, and this book really puts it into perspective! It's humorous and informative...a must have for ANY Bride...budget or no budget! I swear by it!

I'm two months into being engaged and I wish I had found this book sooner. I took it out of the library to give it a try, but it's so useful to have throughout the entire planning process that I'm buying it.

The book contains your standard wedding budget formulas, checklists and time lines, and is neatly organized in chapters to help you plan your wedding (in the order that each item should be tackled). The book really covers absolutely everything you need to know about planning your special day. But more importantly, the book is replete with wisdom, tips, and fun!

My problem with most wedding planning books is that they all seem to be along the theme of "bride on a budget." Now really, what bride isn't on a budget? But focusing just on inexpensive and cost-cutting measures takes a lot of the fun out of wedding planning. David's book brings back the fun into weddings, while still proving that you don't need to overspend to achieve your dream day.

I would HIGHLY recommend this book to any bride preparing for her big walk down the aisle. I love all of the details that go into planning a wedding. But in order for a great wedding, (big or small) to pan out you need to know how to go about all of the behind the scene details which is why this book comes in handy and is a life saver for any bride. It is written as if you are one on one with David Tutera, who is a Celebrity Wedding Planner and knows his stuff! He really cares about a bride's best interests and expresses that in this book by really getting down to the knitty gritty of preparing for a wedding. Definately one of my Favorite How-To Guides yet!

You know how they say "cleanliness is next to godliness"...well (as a bride-to-be) I say "The Big White Book of Weddings is next to the Guest List." This book is a MUST READ for Brides-to-be all over! I found helpful tips that I would have never even thought of, and even better ones than I already knew! After reading this book I have done alot of things differently with planning my wedding than I would have, having not read it. Every little tip helps...and there's ALOT of them in this How-To Guide! So if your planning your wedding I recommend this book--it's worth it. It makes for a great gift too for any Bride to be :)
