    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Great Book & it's not even a Martha Ste The wedding day is one the most special days in a person's life and helping others make it that way is what I love to do. I have helped several of my friends with their wedding and enjoyed every minute of it. (Well almost. :-)) So I am on the lookout for new and neat ideas. When I looked though "The Perfect Wedding" I was very impressed. It is well put together book with lots of great and special pictures. I think that pictures are a very important part of the wedding planning. They provoke new ideas and creativity. The flowers arrangements were especially gorgeous. The information provided is very well put together and informative. It is hard to find beautiful wedding books. There are very few of them out there. The "Perfect Wedding" is one of the most beautiful wedding boos that I have had the privilege to go through.
