All the practical aspects of making the day perfect are here, too, including: Preparing a wedding-planning calendar Setting up a reasonable budget and gift registry Planning a menu of traditional foods Adorning the wedding party in traditional cultural dress and accessories Choosing music for the reception that will appeal to both young and old guests With all the steps involved in planning a customary Latino-Christian wedding or an interfaith one -- from ethnic dances to the toast -- Viva el Amor is indispensable. This bilingual book is all the Latina bride-to-be will need to plan the wedding of her dreams.
