You're going to love, honor and cherish… or at least really like this brand new book called "How I Planned Your Wedding."
The happily-ever-after story is about a pair of real characters. NOT the dreamy couples co-author Susan Wiggs writes about in her bestselling romance novels– but a real life mother/daughter duo who are planning a wedding.
The saga is shared from the perspective of mom Susan and her daughter Elizabeth who overcome seemingly unsurmountable obstacles (flowers! favors! budgets!) to create an unforgettable wedding day.
It's ALL here– the good, the bad, and the funny.
You'll laugh, you'll cry… you'll probably relate! In addition to sharing their own recollections, authors Susan Wiggs and Elizabeth Wiggs Maas offer girlfriend grade advice on:
• How to choose and dress your attendants (and how to avoid Elizabeth’s own inelegant methods of inviting her friends to be part of her big day).
• Choosing and working with a wedding planner (it will save you money—honest!).
• Deciding on the right approach for you when it comes to invitations, flowers, photographers, videographers and other wedding vendors (no, Mom, we can’t just use Evites!).
• Gift registries and the importance of sending prompt, heartfelt thank-you notes (especially to your mother’s friends).
• Why Mom says there must be cake (you want to sample how many cupcakes?).
• Surviving the big day (and rolling with the inevitable punches).
Sounds like a really fun read, doesn't it?
