Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
That said, if you're not a planner like me (I had my wedding planning binder put together within 4 days of getting engaged) this book could offer some useful tips and tools for you. If you're looking for interesting ways to make your wedding your own without breaking the bank I would suggest "Your Wedding Your Way" by Sharon Naylor. It walks you through do's and don'ts of planning your day your way and how to communicate that to your parents and vendors while also saving money and time.
The helpful lists and checklists can be copied and handed out to members of a wedding party, or anyone else who may be helping you plan. The concise language makes an easy-to-use guide for each person involved, while still keeping everything interesting. Leigh's questions for each vendor hit on topics I would have completely overlooked--she reminds readers that you can't assume a vendor knows exactly what you want, and you can't assume they have what you want. If you're on a tight budget for your wedding, you NEED this book. If you have an unlimited budget, read it anyways. Some of the personal touches you can create for your special day are perfect for everyone on any budget.
This guide is very well written and researched especially to a bride who is a novice at wedding planning. Christian and Jewish wedding traditions are mentioned in areas such as wedding ceremony planning. Wedding details that include location, catering, wardrobe, entertainment, flowers and accessories give the reader a sense of options to choose from. Advice such as to how to choose the size, formality level, method, location, photographer, invitations and music are in this guide that also includes online wedding vendor contact information. Tracy Leigh used resourcefulness to help the reader select wedding apparel that would be elegant, yet affordable. The idea of renting tents, dresses or other supplies can save money for their special day.
This book contains options for very stately, elegant weddings, more informal weddings or justice of the peace officiated ceremonies.
How to Plan Your Own Wedding and Save Thousands: Without Going Crazy
If you're thinking about planning your own wedding, this is THE book to buy to guarantee a picture perfect day. My only misgiving about this guide is that it may not be useful to those who are unable to follow through on a strict timeline of getting things done.
