The Ultimate Guide to Planning a Fabulous $5,000 Wedding
The average cost of a wedding in the U.S. is $25,631. If you’re anything like me, $25k is not even what you’d pay for a car, much less spend on your wedding. If that’s the case, this book is for you. It provides the inspiration and practical resources you need to plan your day your way without falling into debt. This book is how I did it – in less than six months for no more than $5,000.
This ultimate guide for the engaged busts myths, shares negotiating tactics and points out easy, no-effort ways to save on invitations, flowers, pictures and entertainment without sacrificing quality. Most importantly, it deals with the underlying issue of good stewardship that you as a young couple can develop at the outset and continue throughout your marriage.
Each area of wedding planning (dress, invitations, decoration, ceremony, reception and photography) is broken into three different scenarios (bargain=$, budget=$$, bling=$$$). Depending on your budget, you may follow one track, or mix and match to splurge in areas you feel more strongly about (like pictures vs. food). Need personalized advice? Drop me a line and I’ll be happy to try help you out.
