An Insanity-Free Wedding: It Can Happen!

Getting engaged is exhilarating…until it sets in that a wedding costs three times what you thought, and takes five to ten times the effort it reasonably should. And then there are the expectations: from calligraphy invitations to satin chair-covers, all those things that Must Be Done or everyone will be Horribly Offended. Or will they?

A Practical Wedding helps you create the wedding you want—without going broke or crazy in the process. After all, what really matters on your wedding day, what you’ll remember ‘til you’re old and gray, is not so much how it looked as how it felt. In this refreshing guide, expert Meg Keene shares her secrets to planning a beautiful celebration that reflects your taste and your relationship. You’ll discover:

  • The real purpose of engagement (hint: it’s not just about the planning)
  • How to pinpoint what matters most to you and your partner
  • DIY-ing your wedding: brilliant or crazy?
  • Affording a wedding without having to cut your guest list
  • How to communicate decisions with your family
  • Why that color-coded spreadsheet is actually worth it

Wedding Zen can be yours. Meg walks you through everything from choosing a venue to writing vows, complete with stories and advice from women who have been in the trenches, the Team Practical brides. So here’s to the joyful wedding, the sensible wedding, the unbelievably fun wedding! A Practical Wedding is your complete guide to getting married with grace.

Synopsis:

Insanity-free solutions for a beautiful, meaningful wedding that reflects your taste (and your budget), from the creator of APracticalWedding.com

Synopsis:

The wedding shelf at any bookstore is packed with guides that tell brides how to have standard-issue, big-budget weddings. And this seems to be exactly what every bride wants…except that its not.

Ultimately, couples want a joyful wedding, not a stressful one. In A Practical Wedding, Meg Keene gives the guidance and creative ideas that couples need to plan a simpler dream wedding—without going broke or crazy in the process. In her engaging, irreverent style, Keene encourages readers to rethink their approach since they wont likely reflect on how their wedding looked, but rather how it felt. From communicating with your family to choosing a venue—and complete with advice from “Team Practical” brides—A Practical Wedding is an all-in-one planner for hosting your wedding with grace and style.
