Item description for The Engaged Groom: You're Getting Married. Read this Book. by Doug Gordon...

A practical handbook for the prospective groom offers suggestions on how to become actively involved in planning a memorable wedding, covering everything from menu planning to designing a wedding Web site. Original. 15,000 first printing.

Publishers Description

Today's groom expects and is expected to take on a large and often times equal role in the planning of the big event. The days of the husband-to-be just showing up with a nice suit on and having no idea of what went into the planning are long gone. This is not to say that the groom's interests need to be the same as the bride's. This book will help the groom to choose what interests them and works well with their talents. If it is not picking out the table cloths to match the flowers, than it could be working on the menu or the invitations or even designing the wedding website. For the groom who wishes to be actively involved and not be limited by traditional wedding elements, the book will suggest ways to create a modern wedding. For example turning the focus to the enjoyment of the guests and thinking of the day as a big party, while still respecting the wishes of the families.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Engaged Groom: You're Getting Married. Read this Book.?

Helpful, funny, a great read for any guy  May 20, 2006
My bride gave me this even though I didn't think I'd help out too much. But I had a few questions and this really helped. It was funny, which helped, since any book that takes things too seriously wouldn't work for me. I had questions about the budget, since I was paying for somethings and trying to figure out who would pay for the rest, and I also had questions about invitations, who to invite, etc. This worked for me. I will pass it on to friends when they get married.
Pracitcal AND funny, a good mix  Mar 5, 2006
This book has a lot of good practical advice, like when to get a marriage license. For someone getting married out of state, this was very helpful. I also thought some of the money-saving tips were unique and not your standard fare. There was a part on dealing with problem guests that has been very helpful since we've had to deal with a lot of these types of people and as the groom I usually have to smoothe over a few egos and play peacemaker. To top it off, there's a great section about bachelor parties goes beyond other books and talks about how people really feel about strip clubs, both men and women.

To keep it interesting Gordon puts in a lot of funny stuff, like lists of songs that are inappropriate to play at a wedding and an answer to the question of whether or not throwing rice at a wedding is harmul to birds. (It's not, but his explanation is really amusing and well written.)

I got this as a gift and thought it was really helpful, one source for all of my questions. Four months to go before my wedding and there's still a lot I learned.
Funny, informative, and personal  Feb 17, 2006
Doug Gordon's witty writing style guides the otherwise clueless groom through the preparatory steps leading up to the wedding. The book is a fun, educating read, and is best accompanied by perusing the author's blog; by the end, you'll feel like you actually lived the experience with him.
Love this book!  Jan 30, 2006
I'm not a guy, nor am I engaged, and I really enjoyed this book. Gordon is funny and gives great advice. I'd recommend this to anyone.
The Best Wedding Advice Out There  Jan 22, 2006
Forget about all the other books and magazines offering advice - Gordon's book is the real deal. His writing is clever and balanced. As a woman, I too can appreciate the advice Gordon gives, without feeling like the decisions I need to make are life threatening. Other bridal literature makes a bride feel like they need to make the best, most expensive choices to have the perfect day. Gordon reminds us to make decisions together, and from the heart. The wedding should reflect who we are, not what society dictates.
