At the front of the book, in answer to the question “What is the goal of this book?” the authors state “To guide engaged couples to take charge of all the details and to prayerfully plan it all.”
Too often, engaged couples forget to include Christ in their planning and preparation. This book is a great resource which helps couples to remember to include Christ in their planning and preparation.
The book is told from both the bride’s and groom’s perspectives. I loved reading the anecdotes and stories. There are also helpful exercises and wonderful quotes from Scripture, saints and others. I especially enjoyed the chapter entitled “Old Wives’ Tales.”
This is definitely a book of “lists.” Checklists are included at the end of each chapter and there are various checklists for different events.
I think this beautiful book should be on every bride’s “to buy” list.
