Amazon.com Review

Which flowers are in season in June? How should you word invitations to a second wedding? What questions should you ask a caterer or photographer? Wedding-industry expert Beverly Clark gives you the answers to these questions and many more in her remarkably thorough guide, Planning a Wedding to Remember. The 23 chapters in this hefty, spiral-bound planner cover everything from announcing the engagement to developing a budget to planning flowers, photography, prewedding parties, and the honeymoon. Clark gives couples the information they need to start thinking about their special day, and then provides them with the organizational tools to create their own special, personal celebration. "Start by deciding what is most important to you," she writes, "and plan the rest of the wedding around that." But what's truly unique and oh-so-useful about this planner is that in addition to Clark's tips and tricks, it contains dozens of worksheets and checklists to help you organize, shop, make decisions, write thank-you notes, and attend to every last detail--without going nuts and succumbing to the wedding crazies. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"Beverly Clark has taken the wedding planning process to a new plane . . . She covers all of the nuts and bolts and teachs you to plan with class and elegance."
— Gerard J. Monahan, President of the Association of Bridal Consultants

I have bought about 5 different wedding planning books and countless wedding magazines, and none of them had EVERYTHING in them like this one. This planner has wedding music suggestions (actual songs) for the first dance, bouquet toss and garter throw. It also includes a list of not to miss photos for your photographer. It gives information aboout formations of the bridal party in the procession and recession. Also it has a list of attendants responsibilities. There are worksheets for vendors and questions to ask each vendor. If I could give this book 6 stars I would, I definately recommend it to all brides-to-be. I gave it as a gift to my newly engaged friend and she adores it also. Good luck!

I became engaged in November of 2000. My fiance and I were on a bit of a budget, so we would be planning the wedding on our own. I wanted to find an inexpensive planner that could help me plan the many details, make decisions, and keep me organized. My reasons for choosing this planner were:
1. Worksheets, Information Sheets, and Checklists
There are worksheets covering everything from writing your engagement announcement to changing your name and address. There are information sheets to keep every aspect of your wedding organized, for example, catering, flowers, music. Most importantly, there are checklists to make sure you don't forget anything.
2. Spiral Bound and Easy to Carry
This planner is spiral bound like a notebook. I knew I would have it with me quite a bit so I wanted something easy to carry and fairly durable.
3. The Content
Each section covers, step by step, what needs to be done and how to do it.
Here are some of the different sections.
Your Engagement
This section covers telling your family, engagement announcements and parties, engagement and wedding rings (how to choose diamonds, style, etc.), and even etiquette on breaking the engagement.
Date and Planning Calendar
There is an undated nine month calendar that you can fill in to count down and keep track of appointments. There is a bride's and a groom's checklist as well as information on hiring a bridal consultant.
Wedding Ceremony
There are creative ideas on how to personalize your ceremony, a worksheet for writing your own vows, and a couple sample ceremonies.
Wedding Budget
A very important section for us.

This book contained very generic information and was not near in-depth enough. The information it contained is the same you can find from many other sources. It only scratches the surface and does not contain enough information to successfully plan a wedding. Especially if you want veer even slightly off the beaten path. You will definitely need another source for planning a wedding. I found Weddings for Dummies (available on amazon) combined with the Knot website (especially the checklist and budgeting tools) to provide me what I needed. However, if all you are looking for is a "wedding organizer" ( a place to keep phone numbers, prices, and contracts), then this will fill your needs. I found the "information gathering sheets" to be helpful. It provided places for information that I didn't realize would be handy to have in one place (such as everyone's name and phone number) and the various price quotes from different vendors. The spiral binding makes it easy to write in because the pages lay flat and it is easy to take with you on all appointments. But, if you are looking for information, tips, or ideas, then you should get another book.

I am a wedding planner and an instructor at the local college. I was looking for a book to use as a "textbook" for the wedding planner class and based on previous editions (I own the 2nd, 4th, and 5th editions), I chose the sixth edition for my class before actually reading it. I thought this book was the Bible of wedding planning. Beverly Clark is one of the most renowned wedding experts out there and always has written very thorough and detailed books. I must say I was VERY DISAPPOINTED with the latest edition however. The book took out several chapters, left out key information, and inserted very little new information other than references to their new website, where the reader is forced to be exposed to their annoying banner advertising.

Despite my previous enthusiasm for Beverly Clark, I must say I would NOT recommend this book. There are so many others out there to choose from. I must say, if you are a bride, you should go to a bookstore and choose one that suits you and your wedding style, rather than purchasing from a website, where you can't really tell what the book is like.

I really like this book. I was able to stay organized during my whole wedding ceremony because of it. I still use it sometimes to see who got us the Whirly Popcorn popper, or the set of beer mugs.
