Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This ebook is really great. It has so much information that is useful for all stages of the wedding. Before, during and after. I love that this is a free book. I have spent a lot of money on bridal magazines and this really helps. Thank you for offering it .

I adore this eBook! So so gorgeous and extremely helpful for any bride to be!

This guide is wonderful! It not only helps if you are DIY or hiring a planner. The timeline within a year's time and the budget info are worth having it. As for myself, even though we are planning a renewal and having only close family, the info contained here won't be far from me. I'm so happy to find it when I did - at the beginning of everything. Is anyone else planning a renewal and see how helpful the guide can be?

This eBook is so helpful, not just for brides, but also for maids of honor and bridesmaids! I'm using it now as a MOH, but plan to use it for my own wedding when the time comes.

This eBook is incredibly helpful! It tells you everything you need to know about planning one of the most important events in your life. I will definitely be referencing this eBook many times in the future.
