9780071413725: The Clueless Groom's Guide : More Than Any Man Should Ever Know About Getting Married

This is not your father's wedding...

From choosing china patterns and invitation designs to color schemes and reception halls, today's grooms are expected to play a much more active role in wedding planning than when their dads walked down the aisle.

The Clueless Groom's Guide offers the 3 million men who get married each year lighthearted commiseration, guidance, and a distinctly male take on the entire process of planning a traditional wedding. Filled with humorous but useful advice and information on wedding issues, this essential guide covers:

  • Buying the ring that'll make her say yes
  • Dealing with the future in-laws in a way that will preserve the groom's sanity
  • Planning the budget without draining anyone's account
  • Negotiating a guest list with the bride, her family, and his family
  • Navigating the all-important bachelor party
  • And much more !

This charmingly illustrated book will not only help guys understand what they're in for--but give them a sorely needed chuckle along the way.

From the Back Cover:

This is not your father's wedding . . .

Congratulations on your engagement, my clueless friend, and welcome to a world for which you are sadly ill equipped. You have entered a new dimension. A dimension of china patterns, ice swans, and boutonnieres. You're planning a wedding, and your fianceé expects more from you than a diamond ring and a blood test. So, you'd better get up to speed--and fast.

From the best proposal to the coolest honeymoon, The Clueless Groom's Guide offers light-hearted commiseration, guidance, and a distinctly male take on the entire process of planning a traditional wedding. It gives you a sorely needed chuckle and some surprisingly useful advice to help you get through the many decisions your bride-to-be will pretend to want your opinion on, including:

  • How and where to pop the question--and when to cue the mariachi band
  • Why engagements of over two years are justified only by extended commitments to the armed forces and/or unusually long jail sentences
  • How to pick groomsmen gifts and groomsmen who almost deserve them
  • Reception sites that offer style and originality . . . and why you should avoid them like the plague.
  • And far more than you should ever rightly know about weddings
