Gay wedding planning books

Planning your own wedding may be a respectful way to honour your loved one, but there’s a reason why so many couples opt to enlist the services of a wedding planner – it can be a nightmare! That said, if you want to tackle the mammoth process yourself, best be sure that you have the right resources, and there’s no better place to start than with a decent book.

While there are a vast number of gay wedding planning books on the market, very few make the grade. From getting through the (almost) traumatic build up, to ensuring everything runs smoothly on the big day, these three books will give you a highly detailed insight into the procedures.   If you don’t feel confident enough to do it yourself and want the help of the experts, then book a free consultation with a wedding planner.
