If you are a first time 'father of the bride' - this is a very well written (easy to read) book of commen sense and sound advice.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a British publication! 9 Jan 2010
By Noel Wharton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is really great and has some very good ideas. I gave it my dad as a gift, and he's really enjoying it! For those living in the British Isles, this should be a great book.

The only complaint I have is that it was written for an audience who lives in the United Kingdom. All of the financial examples for budgeting are in pounds, and all of the online resources and listed vendors in the appendix are not intended for American audiences. When I was reading over the reviews and item description on Amazon, I did not notice that the publisher is located in Oxford.
