I received a copy of this book for free, and I left my review voluntarily.
Irv is an accomplished writer with two best-sellers to his credit. He’s been interviewed on numerous TV and radio shows, plus newspapers and magazines. He’s appeared on The Today Show four times.
Carol and Paulette are retired teachers who have educated hundreds of children during their careers. They have collaborated to write and illustrate The Fairy’s Secret, a book that teaches young kids good values.
Nadine recently retired from running a hospital foundation for 17 years and now is enjoying her first grandson while consulting and continuing her life-long work of helping people. She has planned hundreds of very successful events. John was employed by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection for 34 years. He was responsible for drafting environmental regulations and speech writing.
Bob is a former Assistant Professor of Music at Temple University, where he co-authored a book on Music Learning Theory. He retired from the New Jersey Department of Education and currently enjoys golfing and playing trombone in several local bands.
This was a well-thought-out and well-researched guide to helping plan a wedding. I loved that this was written by parents who had helped plan their kids’ weddings and used their experience and the things they learned along the way to help others.
I worked in the wedding industry for six years, so I’m well versed in how the process goes. I found several of these tips helpful. The biggest key to wedding (or event) planning is organization.
This would be a great gift for future in-laws. So yeah, parents can sort bookclub together to figure out the best way to be supportive through the planning process.
This guide also mentions some handy information, so I think engaged couples and family members could go through this together and find talking points.
