First, a bride-to-be needs a groom. Next—and almost as important—she needs the expert assistance of celebrity wedding planner Donnie Brown. Although other wedding planners may excel at arranging for the flowers, caterer, and music, Donnie stands alone in the charm, good humor, and calm professionalism he brings to a truly demanding job. That easygoing attitude, which shines through every page of this book, makes for an efficient planning process that might just turn out to be enjoyable, too.

Donnie Brown Weddings covers it all—booking the venue, tailoring the guest list, selecting the menu, buying the gown. To ensure that his readers hire the right people, Donnie lists not only what questions to ask each vendor, but also what their answers should be. Complete with detailed timelines and checklists, this hard-working guide makes certain that every last thing gets done within budget and on time. Who said that a diamond is a girl's best friend? When it comes to her wedding, it's Donnie Brown.
