by From My Wedding to Yours
Today, I have the honor of reviewing the book, Your Temple Wedding, by Jeri-Lynn Johnson & Amy Jones.
I really enjoyed reading Your Temple Wedding. It's a great book that gives simple answers to questions many brides have - from the ring to the honeymoon. There are also sections for difficult questions such as; What if one parent isn't able to attend the temple? Or if the one side of the bridal couple's family are non-members, how do you explain a temple marriage? Jeri-Lynn and Amy give kind, loving answers to help brides in these situations.
My favorite part of Your Temple Wedding is all the gorgeous photography! Let me tell you, I was surprised at what these authors could do to transform a cultural hall into an elegant and beautiful reception location! No basketball hoops, ladies!
While reading the book, I also had the opportunity to email back and forth with Jeri-Lynn and ask her some fun questions and bridal tips. (BTW - The picture you see is Jeri-Lynn with her daughter, Amy. What a great mother-daughter writing team!)
Q: Why did you decide to write Your Temple Wedding?
Jeri-Lynn: I have two daughters and they both had amazing weddings. We used a wedding planner and yet, I still had a 5" thick notebook full of ideas - so my oldest daughter and I decided to condense our findings into a book.
Q: If you were sitting down with a bride today, what advice would you and your daughter give her?
Jeri-Lynn: Our top tips are:
