Tips for saying "I do" on a budget that works for you:
Budgeting for your big day
The quickest way to blow your budget is by booking vendors or services before you have the vision and budget in place. Must-ask questions will help you navigate the research and hiring process.
Check it twice
Checklists make sure you have everything you personally need from the moment of engagement to the big day.
Your day, your way
Insider advice will help you plan your wedding in a way that aligns with your core values and life goals. When you know where your priorities lie and commit to sticking to your values, you will find it easier to stick to your budget, as well.

Follow my blog at gravitybeauty.blog/ as I will be posting a whole review on this product very soon.
Where this book is worth its weight in gold for me is the lists, the posed questions of what if's, and all the information pointing out planning items I would never have known to address. For example, in the chapter addressing picking vendors, the author provided a list of questions to ask each vendor and then provided advice for the possible answers each question might receive. This formula is repeated with every planning section and helped me feel a LOT more confident and secure with my decisions. Even if I didn't choose to ask a vendor every single question the author provides, I still felt confident knowing I was equipped to know if I was receiving good service from each vendor.
Additionally, the author provides checklists for both one-year and six-month wedding planning timelines (my personally planning is only six months, so this was especially useful for me!). Within both timelines is a broken-out countdown list numbered by each month left until the wedding, including up to one week before the wedding itself. Again, such a lifesaver!
Overall, I recommend this book for brides/grooms who need realistic, creative thinking to keep wedding spending in check or, like me, need a simple, straight-forward guide to navigate wedding norms.
Baseline - if you just got engaged and wondering where to start, I’d say this is helpful. If you’ve already started googling, not worth it.
I bought some tabs and a good quality erasable pen that has turned this book into an even better functioning wedding planner!
