The Best of Martha Stewart Living : Weddings

Amazon.com Review

The maven of all things tasteful, Martha Stewart has impeccable style when it comes to weddings, and The Best of Martha Stewart Living: Weddings compiles the finest ideas from the magazine of the same name. The book is designed to provide inspiration for the big day, whether it is for the ceremony or the reception. Wedding apparel isn’t covered, but all of the other significant parts of the wedding are: ceremony and reception decorating, bouquets and boutonnieres, wedding cakes, favors, guest books, music–even storage and display of photographs and other memorabilia after the wedding. Stewart encourages readers to use the book’s ideas as inspiration for wedding elements unique to the bride and groom, and to avoid simply incorporating the book’s ideas into their wedding day. She emphasizes that a wedding should reflect the couple’s personality and wishes, as well as any customs they choose to follow. There are few rules of e (more…)

The Creative Jewish Wedding Book: A Hands-on Guide to New & Old Traditions, Ceremonies & Celebrations

From Publishers Weekly

This guide to Jewish weddings will be best appreciated by those who are new to Judaism, those who wish to adapt tradition to personalize their Jewish wedding or those who want to incorporate elements of the Jewish tradition into an unconventional or interfaith wedding ceremony. Kaplan-Mayer writes accessibly and engagingly, leading readers through Jewish customs such as the ketubah, the marriage contract that she encourages them to modify according to their own backgrounds and needs, and the chuppah, the wedding canopy that she helps them envision and create. She tackles food, music, family dynamics and ritual objects (“something oldish, something newish, something borrowed, something Jewish”). Kaplan-Mayer pays special attention to the needs of interfaith and same-sex couples, with practical suggestions for diminishing possible tensions and helping family members and guests feel at ease.

The New Book of Wedding Etiquette: How to Combine the Best Traditions with Today's Flair

From Library Journal

In spite of our increasingly casual society, weddings remain steeped in etiquette and tradition. Shaw, a wedding and special events planner, presents a very formal set of rules for the wedding couple and guests, covering the engagement period, money handling, planning, attendants, guests, correspondents, and parties. Chapters includes an easy-to-read Q&A section along with a brief list of Do’s and Don’t’s. Though some of the advice will seem outdated to some modern couples, the book does cover many contemporary situations, including divorced family members and destination weddings. Recommended for libraries needing to update or supplement material found in general wedding books or etiquette books by well-known experts like Peggy Post and Miss Manners.

Book of Us: A Journal of Your Love Story in 150 Questions

Amazon.com Review

For the diehard romantic, there may be nothing so thrilling as chronicling that one true love. The Book of Us presents 150 topics on the subject–ranging from “Before I met you, my love life was…” to “One of the reasons I think we lasted so long as a couple is that…” Like David Marshall’s earlier book, The Book of Myself, which is also a keepsake, this book makes us wish it were prettier. But it is the thought that counts, and a lot of thought will go into turning these empty pages into something a spouse, one’s children, and then their children will cherish. And not to fear: While this is a very sweet book, there is also plenty of room here to ruminate on the less saccharine aspects of life partnership: financial crises, humorous escapades, parenting woes, and home-improvement projects. A word to gay readers: One of the book’s five sections focuses on “Tying the Knot”; some of the questions specifically address elements such as the b (more…)
