When she was eighteen, Diann Valentine was asked by a cousin to help plan her wedding. She knew then that she had discovered more than just a job. She had found a career. The following year, after receiving a wedding consultant certificate, she launched Memories.

Full of striking photos and practical advice, Weddings by Valentine offers more than just one way to put together a wedding. Diann Valentine insists, 'It's all about making choices that speak to your own beat.' Valentine offers realistic, inventive and magical advice for every facet of a wedding. She begins with finding a wedding dress which is designed specifically for the bride. White is not the only option. One wedding gown photo shows a dress constructed all from flowers. Valentine's advice is 'Express yourself!' Her elements of a memorable wedding include the wedding gown, make-up, invitations, the venue for wedding and the reception, music, food, the wedding cake, a pamper party for the attendants, and important, but often forgotten, finishing touches.

Dian Valentine gives a cheerful explanation of how she prepares the perfect wedding for clients from all walks of life. The inclusion of her own life experiences gives her book a warm intimacy not found in the usual how-to books on wedding planning. This is a must-read book for anyone planning a wedding.
