My only complaint is that it IS a knot book, which although I looove the knot, they have this tendency to hype up a lot of unnecessary things for profits sake. There are some money saving tips in this book, but mostly for very small things. It does have very nice lists and is organized well.
AFTER you read this book, I totally recommend the book "Bridal Bargains" Bridal Bargains: Secrets to Throwing a Fantastic Wedding on a Realistic Budgetas your next wedding book. This will help your perspective a bit when it comes to the big day and such, or at least it did for me.
Please check out my other wedding book reviews, as I am reading a lot now in order to get ready for my wedding!
At first the planning was a little overwhelming, but The Knot Complete Guide to Weddings in the Real World provided a great overview in the first section of the book, before delving into the endless details in the second section. This format works well, and the book is well-organized, with the middle section comprised of chapters on all of the aspects of your wedding: your gown, the ceremony, the reception, music, photography, etc. That makes it easy to find exactly what I need to know depending on what I'm working on at the moment. The third section includes helpful information on all kinds of situations you may face, from spats with your darling fiance, to cross-cultural issues, to managing your future inlaws.
One of the best features of The Knot Guide is that it doesn't assume you know a lot about planning a wedding, but it doesn't talk down to you, either. It includes a lot of helpful illustrations, explanations, and glossaries to help you figure out what different bouquet shapes mean, what kind of cake frosting works best depending on where you're having your reception, and what the different shades of white are when shopping for your gown. Reading this book helped give me the information I needed to communicate effectively with my vendors and "speak their language."
Overall, this book works best as both a guide and a resource--it walks you through everything step-by-step, and is also helpful to refer back to as you progress through your planning. Because of its general nature, it's not the only book I used when planning our wedding, but it is one of the most useful.
