Description


The author of A Practical Wedding offers a no-nonsense wedding planner, with all the tools, tips, and strategies to get the celebration you want, on a budget you can actually afford

Whether you're newly engaged or haven't quite made anything official yet, but you know you want to spend your lives together, you're going to need help planning your wedding. When you're ready to take a deep breath and start, this is the book you want--need--to have. From figuring out what you really want--as opposed to what everyone else thinks you should want--to helping you keep an eye on the ceremony itself and the vows, Meg Keene, founder of apracticalwedding.com, covers all the essentials. With checklists (such as flowers, food, final venue walk-through) and key spreadsheets (guest list and seating chart, budget, venue search, and more), A Practical Wedding Planner helps you:
  • Set a budget--and stick to it
  • Choose a venue: traditional, non-traditional, and everything in between
  • Hire good vendors and keep your friendors (and tells you why DIY doesn't always save money)
  • Figure out catering, rentals, and everything else Pinterest forgot to tell you
  • Reality-check wedding décor
  • Create and write a ceremony that really represents both of you
  • Get everyone to show up...and have a good time

About the Author


Meg Keene is the Founder and Editor-in-chief of A Practical Wedding, which started as a blogspot account on her kitchen table, and is now the largest independently-held wedding publication in the world. Meg has published two (creatively named) books: A Practical Wedding, and A Practical Wedding Planner, both top sellers on the wedding bookshelf. Meg's work has been referenced in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and NPR. It's also showed up on sites like Jezebel, Feministing, Refinery 29, and The Hairpin. She's proud of her roots in California's Inland Empire, though she's also done her time in Brooklyn. Though you're never supposed to say you converted to Judaism (you're just Jewish), she always says it anyway. Meg works and lives in East Oakland with her husband and two tiny kids.
