Review

"He may not have shelves of magazines devoted to him (or groomsmen half as doting as your crew of 'maids), but with "The Groom's Instruction Manual," your hubby-to-be can glean matter-of-fact survival tips on everything from dealing with your freak-outs to making the most of your wedding night; hubba hubba."--"Philadelphia Magazine"" " "For the stand-up 21st century male this pocket guide will help the soon-to-be-wed weed through basics."--"Boston Herald" "Pick up "The Groom's Instruction Manual," a little black book to help a guy survive and, as it says, possibly enjoy his wedding day."--"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"

About the Author

Shandon Fowler was the intrepid copilot of a "traditional Southern wedding" in his wife's hometown of Beaufort, South Carolina. The ceremony took place in front of 500 friends and family members, with a bride-to-groom invitee ratio of 8 to 1. The reception was held under a giant oak tree in his mother-in-law's yard (an idyllic setting and a big money saver). It was either a picture-perfect wedding or an experience so traumatic that it will take years to recover, depending on whom and when you ask. Shandon resides in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, Sydney, and their son, Spence. Paul Kepple and Jude Buffum are better known as the Philadelphia-based studio Headcase Design. Their work has been featured in many design and illustration publications, such as AIGA 365 and 50 Books/50 Covers, American Illustration, Communication Arts, and Print. Paul worked at Running Press Book Publishers for several years before opening Headcase in 1998. Both graduated from the Tyler School of Art, where they now teach. When Jude married his art school sweetheart, Amy, a suitable human to take up the task of ring bearer could not be located. Fortunately their Boston Terrier, Huxley, was persuaded to bear the mantle, after a few laps of Yuengling Lager settled his nerves.

A lighthearted look at a serious matter, going through most aspects of the whole process and not only the wedding itself (eg, how to choose a ring and how to propose). More or less this is a checklist of various bits and pieces you have to consider. Although it is all quite funny and with witty diagrams (think of a photographic camera instruction manual), there are plenty of nuggets of information and the authors are quite reasonable. It makes for a tidy small gift.

This is my third time purchasing this book as an engagement gift to friends because I have received such good feedback! My friend said that the graphics are colourful and funny and the information is very useful. Would highly recommend this book!

This book was a funny gift for my fiance for his birthday as we begin planning our wedding. There were some great tips and funny insights, but I thought it was a bit strange to start off talking about engagement rings and how to propose when I would assume this book to be for a man who has passed that point. I can't see a man getting this book for himself or being given it as a gift until after proposing when he would then be considered en route to "groom status". All around helpful and humorous.

I bought this as a joke christmas present to be fiancé but it issues very practical. Not being able to preview was risky but it is a truly great book with help for arranging the big day, the first chapter is about getting engaged but clearly a lot of readers will already have done this bit!

I bought this book about 3 months before my wedding, and really enjoyed reading it. The content is more appropriate if you are in the very early stages of arranging the wedding (before you even propose, in fact). However, what makes it good is the fact it is written specifically for men, and it definitely reads as such! Lots of funny stories, analogies and jokes. I particularly like the extensive section on buying flowers - 'No man should have any participation in picking the flowers for his wedding'. A great read - it has now been passed on to another friend getting ready for his big day. It would also make a good (all too awkward to find) small congratulatory wedding gift from a guy friend to a would-be groom, given the way it is written.
