Synopses & Reviews
For budget brides, including fans of TheBrokeAssBride.com, this is a definitive guide to saving money and making every dollar count during wedding planning, from the engagement party to the big day, without sacrificing style or personality.
Popular wedding website The Broke-Ass Bride has empowered thousands of couples with the simple philosophy that it's not about how much you spend but how you spend it. You don't need to give up your savings, the possibility of a downpayment on a house, or your sanity to plan a celebration that is meaningful and inspired.
Dana shares her advice--and some useful pointers from the Broke-Ass community--on how to see budgeting challenges as opportunities to be creative, and how to get more for less. In her signature sassy, chatty voice, she gives hardworking and helpful tips, such as how to negotiate with vendors like a pro, and ideas for inventive (and affordable) engagement parties, DIY recipes, decorations, and more.
