    1. One thing I have discovered as a new wedding minister, one can never have enough fresh insights. O'Connell has given me this resource; what an unbelievably supportive and fun read! this well thought out and human book provides how-to guidelines and bits of knowledge into arranging a wedding ceremony that embraces the changing face of marriage in our society. Flawless, truly for any couple looking to have a fresh and new nuptial.


    2. Perhaps the most impressive aspect (one of many!) of O’Connell’s Modern Brides and Modern Grooms is its inclusivity. Not only could this book be used as a very practical wedding guide—regardless of your religious background, income level, or sexual orientation—it could function as a broadly insightful text for anyone interested in reflecting on their relationships with family, friends, and romantic partners (past, present, or desired future). This is not a book about necessarily rejectin [...]


    3. Obviously, i'm not wedding planning, but this is the first book i'd go to when i do end up planning my wedding. however, i think it's relevant for anyone in any sort of long-term serious relationship. (I'm not.) it's full of funny anecdotes and insights into what it means to have a "queer" wedding. the modern wedding increasingly deviates from tradition, due to thorough analysis of what those traditions really mean to the couple themselves. it's better to do what's meaningful to you, rather than [...]


    4. This is an amazing book on wedding planning. Not only does it help with logistical planning and practical things, most importantly, it helps with managing personalities and expectations. If you have planned a wedding, you know how things that you don’t think you care about become huge and how families struggle for power amid “the way things should be done”. Mark O’Connell addresses all that and more in a funny, thoughtful and helpful way, amid personal insights from his own experience. H [...]

    7. By the time I had read this, we were one month out from our big day. I thought quite a bit was relevant to us and even without the book we did quite a few of the same things. The book was an interesting read, but more of the psychological point of different wedding traditions than actual wedding advice.


    8. Mark's is an insightful, thoughtful, individual and human voice. This book is a must read for anyone planning a walk down the aisle!
