Wedding Guide is the most comprehensive resource available to lead you through the year-long process of planning a successful wedding. You have found 45 pages of timelines, checklists, tips and step-by-step instructions to help make the decisions and organize the details that will shape the happiest day of your life.

The three major causes of tension surrounding weddings are money, miscommunication and difficult decisions about people. Wedding Guide provides proven techniques to get you through the rough spots with the information and communication that makes everyone confident with the decisions being made. Not just for the bride and groom, this guide saves time and reduces stress for the entire wedding party (making it an excellent engagement gift).

Wedding Guide is written by professional wedding consultant Hans Hauge Muggesen, Master Bridal Consultant™ and one of the best-known wedding planners in Colorado. This is all the knowledge of an experienced professional in a single source at your fingertips, giving you the peace of mind that comes from knowing you thought of absolutely everything.

Planning a wedding involves many personal choices. Perhaps the most important decision is whether to retain the services of a professional wedding consultant or to perform the planning and production yourself.

If professional help is not viable, Wedding Guide is your next best resource with 45 pages covering every conceivable planning detail and decision. Even if you are organized, an adequate understanding of the many elements involved will save time and is essential to achieving your desired result.

If you are considering a professional, Wedding Guide can also direct your search for a qualified coordinator that meets your needs and budget. While churches or event facilities often have “wedding coordinators”, they only handle limited functions at their own site. Professional consultants manage every responsibility and detail, from invitations to honeymoon and everything in between.

Wedding Guide is 45 pages complete with everything you need to plan a successful, organized and memorable wedding. Because we understand this is the most important and personal day of your life, our guide is not a cookie-cutter approach to a generic, one-size-fits-all wedding day. It provides guidance, tips and resources for planning a wedding that is uniquely you, while keeping in mind the customs and etiquette that make this day special.
