This review is from: The Wedding Book: The Big Book for Your Big Day (Hardcover)
My fiance and I are currently planning a low-budget, fairly untraditional wedding all on our own, sans wedding planner, and since wedding books nearly all cater to a more mainstream, high-budget crowd, I haven't found the majority to be helpful or necessary. Even the ones with titles involving "bargains" and "green" have either assumed a much more traditional scenario than what we've got going, or have relied too much on common sense to be useful.
THIS book, however, has been my go-to resource when we have any questions of process or etiquette, and has been enormously helpful for answering questions related to things like timelines, types of fabrics, tipping vendors, and figuring out seating charts. It is extremely comprehensive and detailed, with information about every single aspect of a wedding, and it looks much more at the PROCESS of putting together a wedding rather than the PRODUCT of what the wedding will look like at the end. It's like having a wedding planner in your pocket. So even though I was initially afraid the book might only apply to formal weddings, I definitely think it could be relevant for anyone's planning process, no matter how small the wedding or unique the plans. You might end up ignoring 90% of what's in the book, but you will love it for the 10% that you do need to know.
