I was lucky enough to have a friend lend me her copy of this book when I got engaged a few months back. She told me that it was super helpful for her when she was planning her wedding, and it might help me too. I've flipped through it a few times, and it's already been really useful in answering

questions I have about planning my wedding. It is inclusive, not focusing on one way of doing things (for example, it talks about Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform customs and traditions), which I really appreciated. I also really like the explanations of certain things (like the chuppah, breaking of the glass, etc.) - I plan to use this as a resource for quick descriptions of different components of the wedding when I have to make programs for it, and also to refer family/friends to if they have any questions as we get planning. Overall, definitely a must for anyone planning a Jewish wedding!
