I picked up this book because it was published by my own publisher. Honestly, I was just looking to check it out and breeze over it to see what kind of non-fiction HarperImpulse was putting out. I was surprised to be sucked in by the light, fun, reading and the practical advice. I have a weakness for how-to books, be they about auto repair or knitting. I love it when someone who knows more than I do can teach back her knowledge in a compelling way. In the words of Nora Roberts… reading makes me smarter.I planned my own country wedding on a "shoestring" in the New York City area. I was super-proud of the choices we made, and excited by the tips savvy friends gave me. However, it was a full-time job for some months. How I wish I'd had this book as a guide. It would have saved me vast amounts of time and even more money than I saved.I buy what Samantha Birch says because she did it herself, and applied her knowledge at her own wedding. I saw the photos of herself and her bridesmaids and groom, and was really drawn in by how stylish it all was while being unique and not stuffy.The book is user friendly, and the personal stories and humor make it a pleasure to read. It's not like going to school. I especially like the organization of the book. It's broken down into smartly thought-out sections, and offers options and choices in each area of wedding planning.If a bride is overwhelmed, and doesn't know how to get started OR if a bride is afraid to get started because her budget is low and she feels like throwing a meaningful and beautiful wedding is daunting, this book will be her friend.In addition to offering useful info, this was a fun and whimsical read. I plan to offer it as a gift for friends when they plan to marry.
This is such an awesome book, and so much more than I expected. Weddings are a minefield, and Samantha's book is a must-have if you're daring to go there. The book covers all areas in extraordinary detail, and for those who think they already know it all, think again. And alongside the fab advice and info, there's a welcome dose of humour.I bought it with a couple of weddings possibly on the horizon, and a few days later there was a surprise proposal, and my daughter got engaged. My first response was "congratulations" - my second was, you need a copy of the High Street Bride's Guide. She'll take advice from the book a lot more easily than she takes it from me! Thank you Samantha, you've already sliced thousands off the wedding bill - we're going to get so much more for our money now. If you're reading this and you don't believe it, buy it and see for yourself.
What an absolute life-saver this little book is. It is quite literally having an amazing mate who writes for wedding magazines to carry around in your handbag and consult whenever you need to on the practicalities of throwing the wedding of your dreams at "high street" prices. 'The High Street Bride's Guide' has saved me HOURS of research time and linked me up with tons of useful suppliers and websites. I've also found myself tweeting directly at the High Street Bride herself when I need a little extra guidance with my wedding planning and she's always been super, super helpful!This book is definitely the modern Bride-to-Be's bible. Unhesitatingly recommended.
