Help! My Daughter’s Getting Married!

Remember last year when I was designing my dad’s latest book for my Twelve by 2012 list? Well, Help! My Daughter’s Getting Married! by John Nichols has been published and is now for sale here at and here at!

My dad was very involved in the wedding planning process when Daniel and I got married, and I think it was a bit traumatic for him. He wrote this snarky book to offer encouragement and wisdom to his fellow father-of-the-brides. It would make a great gift for any father-of-the-bride or father-of-the-bride to be. It would even be helpful if you’re just planning on bringing Mr. Right home to meet the parents, since the first chapter is about the importance of playing nice when you meet your daughter’s potential groom.

My goal for the book design was to achieve a “manly scrapbook” look, and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Graph paper, paper clips, and index cards—I’m pretty sure paper products can’t get any manlier than that!

    I am not getting married anytime soon (that I’m aware of, ha), nor am I a father (or a male for that matter). However, your dad’s book looks so super hilarious, and I totally want to buy it anyway!

    What a cool dad you have.
    This will certainly have to be a present for my dad who will be father-of-the-bride in a few short months!

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
