First off - I love TheKnot.com! It is such a great wedding planning site. So this book is just a great addition to anyone planning a wedding using the website. This book is amazing, because it has every checklist from the website written down into one handy, portable book. There is even space on the sides of each page to make little notes.
So far I've read through the entire book and am now back at the start because I am actively using the chapters in regards to picking and booking the ceremony site and reception site. The greatest thing was the ability to take the book with me and have all the questions right there with me that I needed to remember to ask and have a place to jot down the answers.
There are tick boxes beside the checklists that you can tick off as you go. There are also some really great tips in each section such as wedding dress styles, bouquet styles with little pictures, references to the most common cake glossary like butter cream vs. fondant icing. And there are quirky little tidbits of info or history regarding wedding traditions.
I would totally recommend this book to brides who love making lists and who need to have things right at their fingertips. I personally love checklists and to do lists, so this book is perfect for me. I currently have little sticky flags on the chapters I am using, post it notes with info inside each section and I've definitely used the notes section inside as well.
