A Word From The Author

Weddings are wonderful! They are family celebrations and important life rituals. They also have a lot of moving parts, and it can be difficult to understand how everything fits together. As a sociologist and educator, I have made it my mission to help people better understand the significance of weddings in their families and the larger society. I have been studying the business, culture, and social interactions around weddings since 1997. At that time, my work focused on the American wedding industry and the work of wedding coordinators. Since then, I have written and spoken professionally, not only on the wedding business but also on how to avoid being scammed when planning a wedding and how to reduce wedding costs. I have taught a variety of courses on weddings, including the Business of Weddings, Research and Exploration of the Wedding Industry, and the Sociology of Weddings. Weddings are truly my passion, and I hope Wedding Planning Unveiled: A Playbook for Dads helps you and/or your dad better understand how to plan a wedding.

I have been looking for ways to get my dad more involved in the planning and excitement without knowing much about the process myself. So, I read "Wedding Planning Unveiled: A Playbook for Dads" before recommending it to my dad. I learned a lot and am excited to have conversations with him about his involvement in wedding planning as he reads. The book is easy to follow and provides tons of helpful information, and I'm sure it will reduce some of the stresses related to planning and foster understanding in our relationship.”
