But there’s also a factor that’s major when experiencing the trials and tribulations of wedding planning. And that factor is called common sense. For that reason, you need to read The 10 Commandments of Elegant Wedding Planning. We think you’ll benefit greatly.

Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands...What Jewelers Know and You Don't

10 Commandments of Elegant Wedding Planning

Deb McCoy wrote these Commandments for her second book, The Elegant Wedding & The Budget-Savvy Bride” (The Penguin Group). Filled with good common-sense tips for successful wedding planning (things brides-to-be don’t consider), they generated national press. Read them to achieve wedding success, happily and without stress. (Pass them on to that future mother-of-the-bride [MOB]. She’ll appreciate them, too!)

Portrait Perfect™ A Bride’s Guide to Camera-Ready Make-Up
A Must for the Wedding Day!

Most brides are not aware that make-up for the camera (at her wedding, for example), is very different from the make-up she wears every day or to a gala event. Filled with skin-care protocols and tips, besides a step-by-step guide to applying perfect, "camera-ready" make-up for face, eyes, eyebrows, cheeks, lips and more... Portrait Perfect™ is the ultimate guide to wedding-day beauty.

P.S. If you decide to hire a make-up artist for your wedding day and he/she doesn’t follow or understand the principals of "camera-ready" make-up, then you’ve got the wrong make-up artist for one of the most important days of your life!

The Engagement Ring

How many of us could walk into a jewelry store and intelligently buy a diamond engagement ring? That’s why I wrote this book about shopping for diamond engagement rings—to make you an educated consumer. With the help of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the most prestigious gem organization in the world, I’ve made the technical simple—for you. So brides- and grooms-to-be, don’t shop for the most important investment of your life, your diamond engagement ring, without first reading this mini-book. Once done, you will be an educated “diamond” consumer.

The Wedding Band

You might think it’s simple to shop for a wedding band, but there’s more to it than a visit to a few jewelry stores. Read this guide to buy just the right wedding band for you... The right color, the right metal, the right shape and take a look at all the unique wedding bands jewelers are offering for today’s nuptials. You will be pleasantly surprised but at the same time, you will be an educated bride- and groom-to-be, who knows how to select just the right wedding band for them.
