  1. Such a lovely idea to post those books on World Book Day. When I got married, way back a while ago, I don’t think there were books to help organise the wedding. We just kept making lists. I love the idea of the planner so you keep on top of everything.

  2. Smita

    I like the idea of books and poems around weddings – it would be lovely to read about the celebration of love in a poem! And you’re right, it would make a great keepsake too.

  3. Subhashish Roy

    It;s so good to see these books which can be such a great help with one’s wedding. During our days it would just be an itemized list continuing from what was seen around and following rituals. Weddings are so exciting now with such great ideas.

    1. Ivana Mearns

      I remember when I first got engaged, one of the first things I did was buy a magazine. There seem to be less wedding magazines in shops these day but there is also more books on this topic.

  4. I didn’t realize there were so many great resources out there for the bride and groom to be… I wish we had a book when we were doing our planning – something that would walk us through the process so that I didn’t spend the whole time worried that I was forgetting something important lol
