That having been said the "budgets" listed within, with the exception of one, are not actual weddings that the author planned or attended, but are listed as "real wedding ideas." I thought the budgets in the book would be actual weddings. The "real wedding ideas" are flawed because there is not a category listed for the marriage license. In Los Angeles county, marriage licenses are $90. Even in the one actual wedding that the author supposedly attended (the "Legally Married" wedding), the marriage license fee was neglected, she only allotted $50 for the judge, but no license. I know that a couple can be married and have something memorable for only $500. However, if their budget is only $500 - a $90 expense is a big chunk of the budget and should be plugged into any budget plan. As it stands now, in order to make the $500 budget, a couple would have to shrink the guest list further by reducing the food budget so they could get the required marriage license. I think the author needs to go back to the drawing board and plug that into the spreadsheet and consult with real couples who have actually kept costs within the $500 budget rather than using so called "real wedding ideas" that do not accurately list expenses. Also, the book could benefit from a chapter that lists some ideas for procuring rings on a budget. Honestly, I bought the book based on the blog. The blog is way better than the book - the blog lists actual menus with costs to feed your guests for a diy reception - great help! My suggestion is check the blog, forget the book until some revisions are made.
