Hi Everyone!

I know this is not the best place to ask for recommendation however I can't find a section for Weddings. So i thought i would ask this group:

I just got engaged and am looking to have a wedding in 9 months. That said, i am looking for book recommendations/sites that will help me with planning a semi large (125 people or so) wedding but on a budget i.e. under 6K.

Any thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Elizabeth~

I just saw this topic posted on page 2 of the Book Bazaar:  2 for 1; left behind, wedding and more

Maybe that would be a good place to look?  Or at least ask the person who posted the deal...

Congratulations on your engagement!

Congratulations!  I've got a wedding planner from when I was planning my wedding.  It's titled Easy Wedding Planning Plus: The Most Comprehensive and Informative Wedding Planner Available Today! by Elizabeth & Alex Lluch (Professional Wedding Consultants). It's in great shape - I did fill in a couple lines (nothing really) but I've already whited them out.  The title is self-explanatory - VERY informative and helpful!

Just PM me if you're interested in this book - it's already on my bookshelf so you may want to take a look? Any questions, just ask.  :)

Congrats again.

Jori listed my special above, 2 for 1 left behind, wedding, and more.

I have a wedding planning book by the knot listed on my shelf, and that one was very helpful.  But I don't think it had a big focus on the budgeting.  I also have a couple of books I used to find readings for the ceremony.  The best way to find vendors at reasonable prices and good quality is to shop around.  Prices vary widely, and you probably want to start with deciding what areas are your priority so that you can budget accordingly.

Also consider what talents some of your friends and relatives have.  We didn't want to spend a lot on a videographer, so we asked a friend of ours to video tape the ceremony, first dance, and cake cutting for us as our wedding gift.  I also used one of the wedding planner binders to keep all the information together, and some of the worksheets were very helpful.  I'd be happy to offer other suggestions, just PM me.  Our wedding was 6-28-08.
