Whether you're crafty enough to make your wedding full of personal touches or not, you'll get many lovely ideas for added glamour for your wedding from this book.  You could also use this book to show your wedding planner any ideas that appeal to you so they can be adapted to your style and taste.  One less thing (or things) to stress over.  Linda Koff says, which no doubt will appeal to all, "Many of the projects in this book are simple, and thus ideal for the first-time and novice crafter".  Great news especially if you're new to crafts like this and/or on a tight budget.  You will need some tools and there's a handy list to contemplate your needs.  You can go as glittery or as informal, as lacy or as basic as you wish using these ideas.  There are detailed instructions so you shouldn't go wrong, and many of the ideas are bound to get your creative juices flowing.  Some of the projects you can adopt range from invitations to thank-you cards, wedding cakes, beaded napkin rings, guest books, a ring pillow, and much more.  I liked the idea of the pearl feet and top of the favor box — could be used on one's dresser as well.  Even simple ribbon-wrapped votive candles can be made and used not only at a wedding, but around the home.  I also loved the Double-Duty Menu/Place Card — what a great idea!  The other ideas I really liked are the Accordian Photo Album and the Sweetheart Signature Frame — great memories.  Use the templates given at the back of the book to help you get measurements correct.
Beautiful illustrations.
Conclusion - Enough to get any bride-to-be up and creating.  Very usable ideas.
