Weddings carry an enormous weight in that they are a celebration that reflects the full emotional intensity of our decision on whom to marry. Toss in the fairy tale dreams of your youth, parent’s dreams of a family reunion, and friends’ expectation of an extravaganza on par with a Hollywood production, and it’s no wonder planning them can cause some people to question their sanity, or at the very least, their grasp on reality. Beverly Clark re-assures engaged couples that it can be done, gracefully no less. All it takes is excellent planning, good organizational skills, and the willingness to communicate with all of those involved. Clark reminds couples that the skills they acquire and use in the planning of their wedding will come in quite handy as they begin their marriage. As they wind their way through the planning process, Clark advises them to listen, compromise, respect each other’s needs and boundaries, and stay passionately committed to the task at hand. Add some good grace and a sense of humor, and couples are well on their way to planning a wedding that celebrates their uniqueness as a couple and the very real commitment they’ve made to each other.
Clark still delivers all the planning and etiquette advice, checklists, planning calendars, worksheets, gifts and guest lists that has helped over 4 million brides plan their weddings so far. With the hectic schedules of Brides today she has consolidated a lot of invaluable information which is easily accessed and made it more fun, reminding brides-and-grooms-to-be remember to enjoy the journey, as well as the destination.
