THE BRIDES'S INSTRUCTION MANUAL by Carrie Dennie ($3.99)
Feuding in-laws, manipulative wedding planners, rehearsal dinner meltdowns—there’s no end to the ways a wedding can go wrong. But have no fear: The Bride’s Instruction Manual covers all the topics the bride-to-be needs to know to march down the aisle with confidence.
In a concise and irreverent approach, noted wedding expert Carrie Denny offers advice for setting the date, choosing the dress, selecting attendants, deciding on a wedding site, drafting a guest list, designing invitations, and more. And it’s all illustrated in the trademark “techy” style that has helped Quirk Owner’s and Instruction Manuals sell more than one million copies worldwide.
Complete with tons of useful information (and chock-full of cheat sheets to keep readers on track and on budget), The Bride’s Instruction Manual is the perfect shower gift for every blushing bride-to-be.
