Couples in the UK can now organise their wedding like professional wedding planners by using the Wedding Planning For Dummies book.

Wedding Planning for Dummies Authors

“We were approached to edit a U.K. version of the book over 18 months ago. The U.S. edition had been available here for some time, however there were many chapters that either didn’t relate to the UK market or the law was completely different. Some chapters needed a complete re-write, such as the legal processes to marriage and how Civil and Religious ceremonies are conducted. We also added four new chapters and edited all the other chapters.” says Dominique Douglas

This book offers all the budgeting tips, essential checklists, style ideas and much more that couples need to make sure their special day runs smoothly. The book is priced at £12.79 and is now available to purchase online or in major book shops. Couples can get some of the author tips for free by visiting and selecting the cheat sheets.

Due to our experience as full time wedding planners since 2002 we approached this book just as we would a client’s wedding, in a logical and methodical manner. We truly believe the advice we have included within this book will really help couples plan their perfect wedding no matter the budget.” says Bernadette Chapman.
