Publisher Comments:

This is not your father's wedding . . .

Congratulations on your engagement, my clueless friend, and welcome to a world for which you are sadly ill equipped. You have entered a new dimension. A dimension of china patterns, ice swans, and boutonnieres. You're planning a wedding, and your fianceé expects more from you than a diamond ring and a blood test. So, you'd better get up to speed--and fast.

From the best proposal to the coolest honeymoon, The Clueless Groom's Guide offers light-hearted commiseration, guidance, and a distinctly male take on the entire process of planning a traditional wedding. It gives you a sorely needed chuckle and some surprisingly useful advice to help you get through the many decisions your bride-to-be will pretend to want your opinion on, including:

  • How and where to pop the question--and when to cue the mariachi band
  • Why engagements of over two years are justified only by extended commitments to the armed forces and/or unusually long jail sentences
  • How to pick groomsmen gifts and groomsmen who almost deserve them
  • Reception sites that offer style and originality . . . and why you should avoid them like the plague.
  • And far more than you should ever rightly know about weddings

Synopsis:

This is not your father's wedding... From choosing china patterns and invitation designs to color schemes and reception halls, today's grooms are expected to play a much more active role in wedding planning than when their dads walked down the aisle.
