Another book?!

So I think I might be writing another book. This one would be “How to Plan a Wedding on a Shoestring.” It would be only the second book written in a new “On a Shoestring” series (same publisher as my first book), but I’d get royalties on this one! So be prepared to add this to your collection of books you own but will most likely never read.

Waaaay back in 1999, I had intimate knowledge of this topic (I got my dress from a Discount Bridal Service for 400 bucks). But it’s six years later and anyone who knows me knows that my memory sucks.

That’s where YOU come in. In the next few months, I’ll be picking your brains about everything from your wedding favors to your honeymoon. I’d love to hear all your wedding stories -- how you planned it, and how closely to your plans, dreams and expectations the actual day was. Which things were you most proud of? Which do you wish you’d done differently? And most importantly, how did you save money? (My friend Laura reminded me of one of her wedding day money-saving mantras: “Gravy makes it go farther.”)

To keep it simple, I’ll probably post a new blog entry for each chapter and topic I’m working on. So check back to this site regularly, e-mail or post your wedding stories, and I’ll make you famous!

How to save money at a wedding? Two words: no booze. Yes, I know - perish the thought. But it's one of the most expensive things at a wedding, and at least IMO, one of the least needed. There was no alcohol at my wedding and amazingly enough, all the guests managed to survive the horrendous ordeal. Also, if people actually complain that there's sparkling cider instead of champagne, or soda instead of beer - are they really good enough friends to be invited to your wedding in the first place?

Um, yeah. No alcohol. Good idea. Yep. Thanks. Perfectly fun without it. Sure. Check.

Are you saying you can't have fun at a wedding without alcohol? That's just....sad.

Champagne is something of a tradtion with weddings. Besides, its fun to get a bit toasted at a wedding...as long as it isn't yours.

It was also traditional that people abstain before getting married...traditions don't always hold any water (or champagne)
