5 Helpful Books Newly Engaged Couples Should Read

It’s November 1, and you know what that means — engagement season will be here in a few weeks!  So, if you have a friend who is about to get engaged or if you are planning to walk down the aisle yourself, I have some book recommendations I believe you will find very helpful. (Full disclosure – I have written The Enlightened Creative books myself!)

Wedding Ceremony Planner: When it comes to planning your wedding ceremony program, this book (by Judith Johnson) is the most helpful one I have come across!  I like it so much that I have given a copy of this book to just about every Howerton+Wooten Events couple at the start of their wedding planning.

In addition to planning the details of your ceremony program, you will need to understand the ceremony logistics of the ceremony too.  The Enlightened Created Wedding Ceremony Guidebook provides you tips, checklists and tools to help you plan a ceremony for both a Christian wedding ceremony and a Jewish wedding ceremony.

Wedding Ceremony Guidebook. The Enlightened Creative.

The Enlightened Creative wedding planning guidebook for your wedding day cuisine will help guide you through your bar order, hiring your bartenders, your menu tasting, and the ordering of your wedding cake.
Wedding Cuisine Guidebook. The Enlightened Creative.

Every great movie has a phenomenal soundtrack, and your wedding should too. The Enlightened Creative Wedding Music Guidebook will help you determine your ceremony music and your reception music needs, and provide you with the tools you need to confidently book your ceremony musicians, a deejay, and a band.

As you make your wedding plans with your fiance/fiancee, you want to make sure you don’t forget planning for a happy home. I’m a big fan of Gretchen Rubin’s “Happier at Home” book.  It’s a big reminder that happiness begins at home.
