If you have a fortune to spend, skip this book. If you want to keep your parents and your partner out of deep debt and still have the wedding of your dreams, this is THE book for wedding planning. Lots of eye-opening facts about the "Wedding Industry." Lots of common sense ideas. Lots of fun to read.
The best bridal planning and budgeting book of all I read during the process of planning my wedding. It has tons of useful websites and sources for all the things you'll find yourself needing, and great info on what not to let vendors get away with!
This book really helped me save money on my own wedding. Some of the tips were common-sense stuff, but the tips on where to buy wedding dresses were AWESOME (got a gown that retailed for $700 for $250 based on one of their suggestions!).
