"Highly recommended if you believe what really matters on your wedding day is what you'll remember when you're old and grey, so not so much how it looked, but how it felt."


"Pensacola," February/March 2014
"This book strips away the excess to help you hone in on what's really important to planning your wedding, while offering a bevy of tips and tricks to a lovely and practical celebration along the way. "A Practical Wedding" takes on the myth of perceived wedding "traditions" to set you on a path to a more stress-free big day that still represents the bride and groom in a beautiful way."
"Library Journal," 4/11/14
"In this sane and comprehensive guide Keene guides partners through every step of marriage, from announcements to thank-you notes--all with a deadly realistic stance. This 2011 classic is a must-buy if not already owned."
