Overview

Every bride, no matter what her budget, can make her wish for a magical, fairy tale wedding come true. All it takes are these original, elegant plans and projects for personalizing that special day without spending a fortune. Brides-to-be can choose from four different styles, all gloriously illustrated on breathtaking pages: Modern Romance, Country Charm, Vintage Traditions, and Champagne Taste. Every item is amazingly simple to make, demanding only the most basic skills, and products easily found at retail crafts stores. "Save the Date" cards and invitations, favors, decorations, flower arrangements and bouquets, table settings, wedding veils, boutonnieres, and luscious cakes--they're all here, and all so lovely. In addition, smart boxed "bride ideas" are sprinkled throughout.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Today the average American wedding costs anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000. Couples trying to stretch a budget will benefit from Risling's inexpensive but original and elegant ideas, drawn from her own experience as a cost-conscious bride. Within a framework of four different styles ("Modern Romance," "Country Charm," "Vintage Traditions," and "Champagne Taste"), her suggestions cover invitations, flowers and centerpieces, veils, cakes, and receiving tables. Though some projects are outlined in detail in "Bride Ideas" sidebars, this is not a step-by-step craft book. A few ideas, like bridal shower invitations enclosed in crocks of lavender, are not necessarily cheaper than purchased traditional items, but they would add a beautiful, homemade touch. The gorgeous photography serves as a source of inspiration and ideas. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
