This book has six sections themed around various color schemes:
1. Black Tie,
2. Magical Metallic,
3. Pretty Pastels,
4. Red Radiance,
5. Earth Tones Suite
6. Something Blue.

Out of all of these I like styles of the Earth ToneS Suite and Magical Metallic the best.

Each section has 5 - 6 items covered (including the invitation). Some of the other items featured include candles, thank you cards, table cards, scrapbook pages, guest books, gift boxes etc. So it covers a variety of items which are used for weddings.

The two main issues I have with this book are

1)
Nowhere on the front cover or in the editorial review on Amazon does it mention that ALL of these projects rely on the SPELLBINDER's die cuts. This info is on the 1st page of the book, which is not browsable online. So if you did not have these dies or similar die cuts it would not be so easy to do these projects. In addition, some of these dies (e.g On the Vine Grand Template) need the 12" long mats /spacers rather than the regular sized mats / spacers. If you had to buy a manual die cutting machine, e.g a Cuttlebug this could cost $40-$70. For these Spellbinder's dies I have seen price range from $15 - $25.
So you could easily spend $100 - $200 just to set up a die cutting system with a few dies.

2)
It is not very helpful in terms of mass producing these cards. If you had to produce 50 or 100 of these, how would you tackle this? How to identify the quantity of material needed? How to put these together? How to budget time, money, persons needed for these projects?

I'd wanted this book originally because some of the projects were done by terrifically talented folks I was familiar with. It just happens that, after receiving the book, I got an invitation to a wedding! Perfect - now I actually have someone in mind to complete one or more of the projects for! These projects don't really have to be for a wedding - just switch up some colors or use the projects as inspiration for your own creations! I highly recommend this book!

I love this book. It contains many gorgeous projects that would be great for many occasions....not just weddings. The instructions are easy to follow. The projects are not difficult but they come out stunning. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fine crafts as I do.
