    This is THE guide to help you plan your wedding, especially if you will not be using a wedding planner. I was not satisfied with the ad filled bridal magazines and then I saw this. It tells you step by step how to plan your wedding from working on your budget, what you should look for and ask your vendors, money saving tricks (for those on a budget), what to do and what not to do, and much much more! Its exactly what I needed. It even has stuff in there I never would have thought about. Dont go buy a bunch of magazines, dont go and buy those wedding planning binders. Get this book and just start reading it.
