A Practical Wedding Planning Guide for Couples in the Real World
When you begin to budget and plan your wedding, a good wedding planning guide is a must-have tool.
Today, with all of the information and inspiration that’s out there from Pinterest, reality TV shows, “celebrity” wedding planners and wedding websites, the choices can be overwhelming. It’s easy to lose focus about what really matters. A wedding planning guide will get you started in the right direction and help to keep you on track.
Let’s face it. Planning a wedding is easy when money is no object. It’s far more challenging when you need to use your head rather than just reach for your wallet.
It’s the same when it comes to finding a good wedding planning guide. They are a dime a dozen. In fact, there are so many on the market these days that you can’t tell which ones are just rehashed information and which ones are not.
Several years ago, Meg Keene wrote a wedding planning guide entitled A Practical Wedding: Creative Ideas for Planning a Beautiful, Affordable, and Meaningful Celebration.
I purchased the book after it was recommended by a colleague of mine.
It’s a compilation of all the ideas she learned over the years from the top professionals in the business along with her own years of experience, expertise, and research.
Even as it walks you through your wedding planning from the first step to the last, it’s written from a perspective that empowers couples to find the elements of wedding planning that are meaningful to them and to let go of the rest without regrets or apology, which is a refreshing twist.
To my surprise, Meg’s perspective working with independent-minded brides is much the same as mine. Not a lot of high-end fluff – just couples looking how to get the best value for their money, without sacrificing quality on their wedding.
Adopting that mindset can save you some serious money when planning your wedding.
Meg Keene is undoubtedly one of the premier wedding authorities around today and every nugget of information in this book is worthwhile. You don’t have to use all the information in order to plan the wedding of your dreams. You just need to focus on the things that matter to you the most.
If you are ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work and plan your wedding yourself, you can now tap the advice of one the top wedding authorities in the business for a fraction of the cost of hiring a wedding planner.
I wouldn’t put my name on anything like this unless I thought it was worth it. If you are looking for a wedding planning guide worth buying, buy this. It’s less than $10. You can’t beat that.
Get it here: A Practical Wedding
Meg recently published a companion wedding planning guide, entitled A Practical Wedding Planner: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating the Wedding You Want with the Budget You’ve Got (without Losing Your Mind in the Process).
This guide walks couples through planning, starting with the big picture and drilling down to the nitty-gritty details. And, in her seasoned style, Keene offers no-nonsense guidance for couples planning a dream wedding on a real budget, according to the publisher.
I enjoyed Meg’s first book so much, I picked up a copy for myself, and you can do the same here.
