The Engaged Groom (subtitled You're Getting Married Read This Book ) is more intent on quelling that rising gorge in your throat with savvy advice on subjects ranging from picking a date to surviving a bachelor party, and even has a handy diagram showing the proper bow-tying technique.

The best thing I can say is that I'm glad I don't have to go through it again (though I wouldn't trade the experience, or my wife, for anything). I can now enjoy these books, then pass them on to my recently engaged son. That might be a good idea for you, too, if you've got a male relative or friend preparing for the big step.
