It leads couples through topics from the philosophical to the practical, and answers the tough questions such as: Now that you can get legally married, should you? And why bother having a wedding, especially where it's not yet legal to do so? It also includes: sharing the news with your family; the latest trends in gay engagement rings; how to place same-sex wedding announcements in newspapers; tips on cutting down that enormous guest list; how to navigate tradition and still make your celebration your own; what to carry down the aisle if you don't feel comfortable carrying a bouquet; and making the Internet your wedding resource.

Reviews

"Now in its third edition, this guide offers 22 chapters of witty, wise, and practical advice, covering everything from domestic partnerships and the concept of marriage to how to cope (e.g., being gay in a straight world). . . . This indispensable book also contains illustrations, inspiring photographs, and an extensive list of web resources." --Library Journal "A beautifully conceived and illustrated book that tackles every aspect of the wedding ceremony with humor and pride. . . . Tongue-in-cheek hyperbole is the hallmark of this thorough and witty guide, and traditional couples as well as gays will find its lighthearted yet seriously knowledgeable tone refreshing. . . . this book [is] as much a statement about gay life as it is a nontraditional wedding planner." --Patricia Holt, San Francisco Chronicle "[The book offers] hints on how to deal with family members (an obstacle at many weddings but sometimes more so in same-sex weddings) with humor, and shared experiences that will help any couple put their wedding into perspective." --Tony Bravo, San Francisco Chronicle "[The authors] answer with eloquence and wit the arguments that many gay activists have marshaled in opposition to gay and lesbians codifying their relationships in the same ways that straights do. . . . even the book's most serious advice is generously larded with humor. . . . [Ayers and Brown] have left out none of the trappings." --Charles Isherwood, The Advocate "A chatty, humorous compendium of traditions, advice, and wedding details geared for same-sex couples." --Publishers Weekly "All you need is love--and this book--to have a great wedding." --Melissa Etheridge, musician and LGBT activist "Everything you need to consider to plan the event of a lifetime--except the man or woman of your dreams." --Eric Marcus, author of Making History and Is It a Choice?
