In sharing her many years of experience, the author saves you time, and also saves you money and heartache by pointing out the key questions to ask of vendors and the pitfalls to avoid. The book pays for itself many times over.
I particularly liked the examples of real brides and real weddings, the latest trends, and the comprehensive resource guide at the end of the book. This book is so good, even other event planners recommend it!
