The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Weddings

I thought this little book was worth a mention - The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Weddings - a good little pressie to get someone who is going to get married.

The book is full of solutions to all the typical problems that you may worry about, plus a whole load of things that probably didn't even cross your mind!

Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Weddings
Examples of worst case scenarios described in the book include:
  • How to conceal wedding day blemishes
  • How to survive if the wedding dress gets lost
  • How to make emergency cufflinks
  • How to survive if the flowers don't arrive
  • How to treat a panic attack
  • How to avoid a nervous breakdown before the wedding
  • How to find the groom (!)
  • How to deal with a drunk bridesmaid
  • How to maintain composure during the ceremony (stop crying, laughing, hiccups etc!)
  • How to deal with lost rings
  • What to do if someone objects
  • How to survive if the band doesn't show up
  • How to survive a bad toast

and so the list goes on and on...

I better get reading!!

The Wedding Diaries by Laura Bloom

I just finished reading a great book called "The Wedding Diaries" by Laura Bloom. This is an excellent book to read if you are just starting to plan a wedding or in the middle of the wedding planning. The author of the book, Laura takes us through her experiences of planning her wedding on a tight budget.

I devoured the book within 2 days and enjoyed Laura's account of her experiences and ups and downs while she tried to stick to a budget, shopped for her wedding dress, chose and decorated her own venue (the Town Hall), arranged the catering and more.

The book even includes a breakdown of the average UK wedding costs. This is really helpful if you have absolutely no clue (like me) of how much things are going to cost.

This isn't a dull wedding guide - it is an interesting and amusing account of someone's real life experience of planning a wedding.

You can buy The Wedding Diaries from Amazon at a discounted price.
