The Engaged Groom: You're Getting Married. Read this Book. ($10.87, amazon.com)
By Doug Gordon
Face it: Your husband-to-be probably couldn't care less about table linens or flower arrangements. But Doug Gordon's book explains how wedding planning can be fun for the guy, too.
"Play to his talents," writes Gordon. "If your groom is interested in food, put him in charge of the caterer. If he's a techie, ask him to create a wedding website." Full of wit and humor, the book also offers plenty of practical, straightforward advice on topics such as the marriage license, difficult guests and the all-important bachelor party. "You'll have plenty of chances to party with your friends in the future," writes Gordon. "And if you're worried that your marriage will mean a loss of your freedom, I suggest you talk to a therapist and not a stripper."
