When the time comes to join their lives forever, most couples don't even know where to begin. They search like crazy through magazines, surf the Internet, go from store to store, and most end up looking for a wedding planner. By reading 100 Plus True Stories, they will learn what it is like to plan a wedding from those with first-hand experience. They will learn what went well, what went wrong, and what could have been better.

Reading about what other couples had to keep in mind will help new couples do the same.

Share your experiences with them so that these soon-to-be-wed couples will know everything about the preparations, and the things they should not overlook when planning their wedding.

Share your wedding experience. Feel free to write your experiences the way you wish. You can use your own ideas, or use the questions below as a guide. In the event you use a question, you should only answer that question. You may also answer several questions in separate entries and allow us to choose the best one for the book. Whatever your preference, only a maximum of 2,000 characters will be published.
