Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Wedding plans? Here's expert advice on ten topics the wedding consultant can't help with. HOW DO WE KNOW WHEN WE'RE READY FOR MARRIAGE? WHAT'S THE SECRET TO HAVING A GREAT ENGAGEMENT? HOW CAN WE GET MARRIED WITHOUT DROWNING IN DEBT? They're just three of the questions every couple seriously contemplating marriage wonders. And where better to turn for answers than those who have gone before--experts in the areas of marriage, relationships, and finance who know from experience what it takes to make the days leading up to the wedding (and the years that follow) an overwhelming success! Getting Ready for the Wedding supplies practical, expert advice on ten important topics from such well-known authorities as David and Claudia Arp, Dave & Jan Stoop, Ron Blue, H. Norman Wright, and Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott. Here at last are the insights couples need most into such issues as . . .

What to Do With Wedding Jitters (Robert & Rosemary Barnes)

How to Have a Great Wedding Night (Cliff & Joyce Penner)

Getting Married When Your Parents Don't Approve (John Trent)

For Those Getting Married Again (Thom Whiteman)

After the Honeymoon (Les & Leslie Parrott) . . . and more. This frank, easy-to-read book gives advice that no wedding consultant can offer. It's the next best thing to actually sitting down in a room with the contributors and discussing how to have an engagement and a wedding that's everything a couple could want. Not just a season of planning for that wonderful day of rings, rice, and romance, but the joyous beginnings of a lifelong, shared adventure in love, growth, and faith.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is too old-fashioned for the modern bride and groom. They assume that the bride's parents are footing the bill for the wedding and are actively involved in the planning of the wedding. This is simply not the case for anyone I know that's recently been married. Also, an entire chapter devoted to abstinence before marriage seems unnecessary. I would recommend Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts and The Five Love Languages for premarital purposes. After the wedding, buy There's A Spouse In My House- a humorous and thought-provoking book about newlywed life.
