Thirty to Wife The Tell-All Groom's Guide to Weddings-How to Get Hitched without Losing Your MInd or Your Fiancee (Paperback)
|Author: Craig Michaels|
|"Thirty to Wife" is a warm, funny, and informative narrative based on Craig Michaels's experiences as a groom-to-be that every engaged man and woman will relate to. Focusing on the thirty days leading up to his wedding, this book reveals a groom's thoughts and emotions as he tries to evade the simplest of wedding tasks and still make it to the altar. A domineering Jewish mother, frustrated bride, and clueless groomsmen contribute to the ultimate question: does planning a wedding change romantic love from passion to peril? |
"Thirty to Wife" isn't just about one guy's journey; it's a field guide for all grooms and brides. Wedding details, including responsibilities, budgeting and traditions, round out Craig's adventures to assist grooms-to-be. Brides-to-be will better understand what their mates are going through and take comfort in knowing that things could be worse.
Originally meant as a surprise-wedding gift for Craig's wife Deb, the author soon realized that his personal diary could serve as a blueprint for what all grooms-to-be shouldn't do in their days before their wedding. Only recently did he share the final manuscript with Deb. "That explains a lot," was all Deb could muster between laughs, cries, and dirty looks.

Must read for every groom9/5/2006
If only my husband had read this... When we got engaged his mom handed him a book outlining his tasks, but unfortunately there was nothing to walk him through the myriad dos and don'ts beyond the checklist. The author's story takes grooms through a rapid-fire 30 day adventure that all grooms can learn a lot from. Brides pick this up for your grooms and save yourself a lot of frustration!
