This book was one of all-time my favorite writing projects! The bottom line is, weddings are expensive, and not everyone has an unlimited budget. When I started planning my own September wedding, one of my most important goals was making sure everything was of value and that we didn’t start our marriage by being in debt! I loved creating this book to show brides and grooms that you can have a beautiful, fun and elegant wedding on a small budget.
Planning the Perfect Wedding on a Small Budget include full wedding-planning information, plus special money-saving tips for every aspect of the event. But the most valuable and unique thing about this book is that it features 13 real couples’ weddings, all costing $10,000 and less. Each real wedding includes the couples’ budget, full-color photos and a complete breakdown of spending. You can see one of my favorite real weddings — Angela & Nathan, the drummer from the band Anberlin! — in the excerpt below.
Budget-conscious couples will love this book! Look for it in May!
