Note from Sharon:

I am SO proud of this book, my bestseller from all of my 35+ wedding books! I spent over a year modernizing this book and reaching out to some of my favorite wedding industry professionals to invite them to share their top tips for the moms, and I'm delighted to inspire all moms and stepmoms as they create a fantastic plan for themselves in the co-creating of the wedding. Moms, you're the authors of your MOB experience, and I wish you all the best!
