Finally, a book for those of us who are planning to get married for far less than the average of $20k+ that an American wedding goes for these days. My fiancee and I are planning a wedding for next spring. I've seen many wedding planning books, and the redundancies between them--the same old warmed-over inventory of checklists and idiotic tips like "if you're planning an outdoor wedding, make rain plans"--become clear after reading just two or three.This book, though, is the best I've seen. It's full of great tips to save money and plan a wedding on a budget, and the best part of the book is the extensive research and tips on working the wedding gown industry to your advantage--probably one of your single largest expenses. There's even a complementary website that grades different wedding gown suppliers/designers--the website access information is printed in the book.I only have two critiques of the book:1. It's not proofread all that well--I found spelling and syntax errors with a degree of regularity. To me, this detracts from the credibility of the book.2. This really applies to almost all wedding planning books, but it annoys the heck out of me that brides are assumed to lead the wedding planning (e.g. the title "Bridal Bargains.") How about "Wedding Bargains"?A central tenet of this book is not being pressured into making huge purchases for your wedding just because social convention suggests you should--instead, you should have a wedding that matches you and your fiancee's personalities. I'm surprised that the authors would make this excellent point, and then leave the social convention of the bride planning the whole event by default entirely unexamined.
