Looking for a good read? Check out some of these new wedding related titles. All of these titles are available on Amazon.com
For Better: The Science of a Good Marriage
by Tara Parker-Pope has some great info including the surprising fact that the often-cited statistic that half of all marriages end in divoce is totally false (yippee!)! Parker-Pope uses scientific research to back up claims about divorce rates, how snoring affects marital bliss, and how good fights help marriages (again, I say, Yippee!).
On the planning front, I’ve really been enjoying Planet Wedding: A Nuptialpedia.
It’s full of helpful planning info, but also great trivia and fun wedding facts. If you need a break from planning, but don't totally want to get away from it all, flip to almost any page of this fun read for something good.
Getting Hitched: The Rough Guide to Weddings for Girls & Guys (Rough Guides)
sort of treats wedding planning as a foreign country (which it kind of is), and offers you and your groom a tour through the strange country of planning. It was originally written for a British audience, but it definitely has helpful info for US couples, too.
The Best Ever Ring Bearer: All the Best Things About Being in a Wedding
and The Most Special Flower Girl: All the Best Things About Being in a Wedding
aren’t great works of children’s literature, but they do fill a needed niche, information about and gifts for, your littlest wedding party members.
Finally, if you like eye candy, or cake in this case, you can’t do better than Wedding Cake Art and Design: A Professional Approach.
Unbelievable photos! A must-have if you're looking for inspiration for a DIY wedding cake project.
Have you read any good wedding-related books lately?
Disclaimer: All of these nice publishers sent me review copies of the books, except for the publisher of For Better, what's up with that? Oh, and Amazon.com is a paid affiliate.
