This informal guide cheerfully reminds the reader that every tradition began as an innovative new idea, and that the ceremony should be tailored to fit you — not the other way around! Filled with savvy advice (which two wedding elements should you have professionally done?) and creative suggestions (how can your bridesmaids look "official" without matching dresses?), this book is here to inspire and empower the bride who is going beyond a generic cookie-cutter wedding.
Recommended by Suzanne G., Powells.com

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We know, we know, traditions die hard, but more and more of us are getting married these days and we want to forge our own fete. Forget the Bridal Galleria, forget the country club, The Anti-Bride Guide is the ultimate guide to creating the ultimate party. Fun to read and illustrated throughout with line drawings, each chapter (the place, the dress, the food, etc.) offers up fabulous advice and unusual ideas for those brides looking for more than the usual haunts and the standard fare. Dozens of unique tips throughout give the bride great insider advice on how to deal with all the wedding eventualities (last minute lipstick stain on dress, what to do about a facial break out on wedding day, etc.) A quick planner and resource guide at the end keeps the bride on track. Tabbed chapters have pockets for stuffing brochures and clippings, and a flexi-pocket at back manages the overflow.

If pastels induce nausea, this may be the guide for you. Practical advice and ideas outside the standard fare with amusing illustrations and helpful tips.
