The Knot Yours Truly: Inspiration and ideas to personalize your wedding by Carley Roney and the editors of theknot.com
I don’t know if The Knot was a thing when I was planning a wedding – if it was I didn’t pay attention to it – but based on this book, it seems to be a Martha-Stewart-influenced approach for mostly White, mostly straight people. There are a few exceptions to that audience pictured in the book, but not many. The level of planning here is definitely at Martha standards – there are no shortage of things to think about and personalize and everything looks elegant, even when it’s in a rustic setting. Instructions for 20 DIY projects are included, though some are more likely to be applicable to any given wedding (a macrame dog leash feels like a real stretch). The table of contents is useless, though – the three main sections are listed but nothing beyond that, so trying to find something specific using it is a joke.
full disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from Blogging for Books
