Boy meets Girl. Boy realizes she's The One. Boy proposes to Girl. Now what? The Knot Guide for the Groom is a relationship-saving guide to weddings for guys who think taffeta is a candy and Jordan almonds is the stripper booked for the bachelor party. With the wisdom and gentle humor of a big sister, The Knot's Carley Roney distills the rituals and duties of the modern wedding into a succinct script that even the most clueless guy can followand possibly enjoy. The wedding planning process is outlined in just enough detail to inform without causing undue terror, with emphasis on traditional groom duties such as finding an officiant for the ceremony, hiring a band or a DJ, and obtaining the marriage license. Extra attention is given to critical topics such as choosing a bride-approved wedding look (whether tuxedo or beach casual) and planning a honeymoon she'll enjoy too. Plus, advice on choosing a best man and groomsmen (and understanding their roles) helps the groom pick a winning team. With an accessible illustrated handbook format, The Knot Guide for the Groom will turn regular guys into happy husbands.
