    Yup, I broke down and bought the book :) I'm a planning freak so I try to use every resource I can find. This book is actually really informative. I read a few sections a night and I'll be taking it with me for my 2nd site visit next month. I'll probably start posting for you guys some of their tips to help all of us along this journey!

      I rented it from the library and I did find it helpful too.

        I bought it too. But I didn't really use it that much. Actually I didn't use it all. Well maybe just to see the legal requirements in the back to help choose my destination.

          I got it for Christmas but didn't use it very much. I think I was too far along in the process! And I had BDW!

          It would be helpful to a brand new engaged couple and/or someone unfamiliar with weddings.

              Yep! I have to admit, I bought the book as well! I thought any resource I could get would be helpful. Actually there are a few good sections in it and it is pretty resourceful!

                I used the Sandals wedding planner software. It's great and free (except for a few options)! If anyone wants to try it out, here's the link: Wedding Planner Software

                  The packing list I posted in response to a couple of different threads is from that book.

                    I bought it as soon as we decided on having a destination wedding. I found it to be helpful, but didn't provide as many details as I would have liked, but then I found BDW and now I'm feeling VERY confident that I'm covering everything.
