Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At first I thought it read "on a Badger," and I wondered at the astoundingness of niche markets. Anyway, this sorta guides readers through doing a wedding on a budget (duh, see the title there?). Eschewing frou-frou language and super-girly stuff, it's flush with practical information and uses "personal stories" (like those of Susan and Nick, who budgeted a "modest" amount for their wedding) to illustrate lessons. This is particularly useful at specking out the assorted fees and costs of the whole shebang; reception site, music, wedding cake, female strippers, blood tests (dude, why? Has anyone ever learned anything from a blood test that had an impact on the wedding?). There's a whole chapter on the food, with individual sections on cake and fondant (dude, I don't joke about fondant). Overall, you can do worse than this. A good companion title is Cameron's 101 Ways To Save Money on Your Wedding, which is less about planning and focuses (again, true to its title) on saving money by area, e.g., low-cost drinks, wedding dress, flowers, armaments, etc.Alternate Take: A.D. Livingston's Jerky: Make Your Own Delicious Jerky and Jerky Dishes Using Beef, Venison, Fish, or Fowl. Sick of weddingizing? Take a break. Kill stuff. Dry it. Eat it.—Douglas Lord, "Books for Dudes," BookSmack! 8/5/10
