5.0 out of 5 stars Far exceeded my expectations, March 27, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Wedding Book: The Big Book for Your Big Day (Paperback)
I had read other reviews of this book on here that called it stuck up and not realistic for a bride on a budget. Being one myself, I was turned off and decided that the book would not be worth it for me. However, after hearing a number of other people talk about this book with nothing but glowing reviews, I decided to give it a shot. I am SO glad that I did! This book covers every single aspect of a wedding, top to bottom & start to finish, and the advice contained therein is useful for a wedding being planned on a $5k budget or $50k. The authors cover every aspect of the day- announcing your engagement, invitations, catering, music, photography... everything!- but they never pressure you to spend a certain amount or say that one option is better than the other. Instead, they present you with ALL of your options, including some cultural or religious points you may not have thought of, in order for you to make a fully informed and thoughtful decision. They also include lots of helpful charts and indexes in the back regarding seating, budgeting, lists of questions to ask vendors before you book them, etc. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone involved in the planning of a wedding!

Thank you for your thoughtful review. It gave me a "birds-eye view" of things. And discovering there are helpful charts and indexes in the rear of the book is useful information indeed. I'll now be able to help a relative of mine who is getting married soon.

The fact that the book covers ALL aspects of a wedding is what put me over the top decision-wise.
