    It's actually for budget weddings

    This is the only book I've found that's actually for people on a budget. It gives good suggestions about how to save on decorations and other things, and it's informative about things with hidden costs so you're not suprised with them after it's too late to back out. Other books suggest hiring a wedding planner and then not allowing people to bring dates in order to save money - but this book focused on how to have a good time at your wedding without breaking the bank or telling guests they have to come alone. I wish I'd read it first and hadn't wasted my time reading all the others.
