Just imagine what you could do if you could save $30,000 as you start out your new life together.

What is one of the biggest events in a person's life that not only takes tons of time to plan, but can also involve, not just a few headaches, but a few mild stress breakdowns and hair pulling moments. Yes, if you said wedding, you would be right on the mark! A wedding is suppose to be a time of bliss and excitement, but oftentimes becomes overshadowed with the exorbitant and outrageous costs of even the smallest detail. Tracy Leigh gives brides a new option and an escape from this craziness with her book, How to Plan Your Own Wedding and Save Thousands: Without Going Crazy.

This guide will take readers every step of the way to help plan their dream wedding, at a fraction of the cost and stress. From invitations, menus, flowers and guest favors to transportation, photography and thank-you cards, this book covers it all. Broken down in easy and concise chapters, How to Plan Your Own Wedding can be read from cover to cover or bounced around to meet the reader's particular current need and/or questions.

How to Plan Your Own Wedding and Save Thousands: Without Going Crazy is an invaluable resource and guide for any and all bride-to-bes. I highly recommend this book to make planning your wedding a much more enjoyable and fun (not to mention less expensive) experience. I cannot think of a better gift to give to a newly engaged couple. They are sure to thank you again and again!

This book is a very comprehensive guide for do-it-yourself wedding planners! It covers every aspect of weddings, breaking it down by cost and showing what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and where corners can be cut to save money.
If you’re thinking about planning your own wedding, this is THE book to buy to guarantee a picture perfect day. My only misgiving about this guide is that it may not be useful to those who are unable to follow through on a strict timeline of getting things done.

This practical book describes how to plan a wedding. The author, Tracy Leigh, emphasizes, the idea of setting an overall budget and individual item expense budgets ahead of time as a task that will keep your wedding budget on plan.
This guide is very well written and researched especially to a bride who is a novice at wedding planning. Christian and Jewish wedding traditions are mentioned in areas such as wedding ceremony planning. Wedding details that include location, catering, wardrobe, entertainment, flowers and accessories give the reader a sense of options to choose from. Advice such as to how to choose the size, formality level, method, location, photographer, invitations and music are in this guide that also includes online wedding vendor contact information. Tracy Leigh used resourcefulness to help the reader select wedding apparel that would be elegant, yet affordable. The idea of renting tents, dresses or other supplies can save money for their special day.
This book contains options for very stately, elegant weddings, more informal weddings or justice of the peace officiated ceremonies.
