This is not the book for you if you want to invite 500 people and to have a wedding that looks like every other wedding you've ever attended. This is a GREAT book, however, for those independent-minded couples who want a wedding that is more interesting and personal than the ones the bride magazines try to sell you. There are great ideas for creating a wedding that reflects who you are as people. No cookie-cutter weddings here. Just beautiful, original ideas to help you create an event that truly reflects your life and your love.

Even if you have a cousin Billy who is going to photography school, don't let anyone besides a photographer with a lot of wedding experience take your pictures.
I am a non-wedding photographer, and no matter what anyone tells you weddings are hard. I have taken wedding photos for friends and other people who just "needed someone" or "wanted to save some money." Even though I'm a pretty good photographer, weddings are a like no other photography job on earth...the families, the rushing, the stress. I know that my photos weren't just as good as the expensive pros.
Trust me, you want someone who has experience with that kind of pressure. You spent the money on the wedding, don't skimp on preserving those memories. It's not worth it.
There's a reason why really good wedding photographers cost so much!

When I thumbed through this book at the local book store I thought it was going to be really helpful. I liked the fact that it had detailed wedding plans and budgets. However, after I got it home and began reading it I realized that it wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. All the wedding's featured where low-key second weddings. None of the weddings were the traditional dream I was planning.
I guess it's an ok book if you are planning a second wedding but it will not help the first time bride looking for all the frills.

this is an easy read. if that is all you are looking for, then yes, buy the book. the book gives stories on how friends helped with the food, the pictures, the place, the flowers, etc. if i had someone to give me the food as a gift, sure, i could do a wedding under 5K. a few ideas, but instead of buying the book, check it out at your local library. anyone could tell you to keep your list small to save money. have friends bring food to save money. hire your uncle to take pictures. if ms. kennedy is a caterer, than we should be able to hire her for under 5K.

If you are planning to an inexpensive wedding, this book is full of great ideas on how you can make it happen. Even if your wedding may cost more than $5000, the book is full of lots of creative cost-cutting suggesions. Moreover, is enjoyable and easy to read.

This book was a total waste of money. The elegant weddings cost so little because the brides have family or friends who provide food, liquor, photos, reception sites, etc. If you have an aunt who is a professional wedding photographer, you probably don't need to spend money on a book that tells you to ask her to take your photos. If you don't have family who can provide these services, or you don't want to ask your friends to provide a dish for a potluck reception, then do yourself a favor and save the money you planned to spend on this book for your wedding itself. It should receive zero stars.

In addition to being one of the most helpful books we bought as we are planning our wedding (and we bought quite a few), this one is also fun to read. She offers examples of weddings, breaks down how they spent money and -- most of all -- gave me ideas (and permission) to do it our way. She points out that weddings that aren't 500 people and extravagant affairs reflect the couple better and are often far more enjoyable. Also look for Bridal Bargains -- the other most helpful book we found.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a great start for those people doing a wedding on a tight budget. It gives sound advice that can help the bride & groom put together a wedding that is original yet affordable.
The strongest feature is the author's discussions of specific weddings. Each wedding highlighted provides a detailed list of all the wedding expenses and the total wedding cost. The weddings also run from a little under $2000 to almost $5000, so it does give a wider, more practical array than other similar books. It gives indepth information on specific items, how they saved money on some items and what they did to make their wedding special.
The author also points out how important it is to set priorities in your budget. She gives samples and this notes you should focus your budget accordingly on the items that are most important to you. May seem simple, but it is key to success.
Overall, the books is a good starting point for planning the wedding of your dreams without breaking the bank.
I would also suggest "How to Have an Elegant Wedding for $5000 (or Less)" as it has some more practical suggestions as well.
