Reviews - What do our customers think?
Priceless Book  Aug 20, 2007
I scoured all of the local libraries for books on wedding planning, and of the dozens that I read, this was by far my favorite book. While some of the advice is rather obvious, as other reviewers have mentioned (have your photographer friend take your pictures, etc.), I found this book to be such a refreshing departure from the typical books and bridal magazines that I have read. It provided such reassurance to me that it's okay to not want to spend tens of thousands of dollars on one single day of your life. When I was feeling the pressure to follow all of the expensive traditions that usually go along with a wedding, this book helped to remind me that our wedding day is about celebrating my fiance and I as a couple, not impressing people or living up to expectations. I've had so much fun finding really amazing bargains on everything from favors to decorations to invitations and more, and every time I really hit the jackpot with a deal, I wish that I could be in the book to tell our story.
Extort your friends and family!  Apr 2, 2007
According to this book, the way to have a "Priceless Wedding for under $5000" is to rope your friends and family into footing much of the bill by providing to you, free of charge, catering services, music, photography, ceremony and reception locations, flowers... and so on. In the price breakdowns in the book, huge ticket items are not even counted as costs if someone other than the bride or groom writes the check or does the work. Oh, and items bartered for are also counted as a "free" items. Also, the rings, the honeymoon, "pre-wedding" stuff, such as the rehersal dinner, are not counted in the cost. Finally, some of the figures in the sample budgets are totally unrealistic. For example, in at least one incident, under stationary (for 100+) the total would not even pay for the postage (invitation, RSVP, thank-you notes) let alone the stationary itself...
ridiculous  Nov 15, 2006
The title of the book should be " How to be cheap without losing your dignity". It's impractical for most people outside of the midwest. I was given this book as a gift and I promptly donated it to my local public library. I wouldn't dare pass it on.
Not worth it  Jan 7, 2006
It was definitely neat reading about others' weddings, but the advice in here is impractical, and impossible to follow depending on your situation. As previously mentioned, most of the couples in the book managed to have a cheap wedding by having friends and family donate things - food and photography services, in particular. If you don't have chefs or photographers in your family, this book's not going to be much help.

The weddings written about are definitely creative, but if you have a large family or are dreaming of a traditional wedding instead of a $5000 elopement to Disneyland or a casual barefoot-on-the-beach affair, you'll be out of luck with this book.
Ironically, not much bang for the buck  Nov 24, 2004
This book would be great if it were the only one out there. However, it is most certainly not. The only original parts of the book (and by that I mean ideas that you couldn't find elsewhere) were the dollar breakdowns of some actual weddings for less than $5,000. Those examples were very specific scenarios, and if you weren't one of those similar situations(ie: having a friend or family with a home large enough for your guestlist), there wasn't much value gained from the book.

Given the target audience for the book are couples trying to get the most for their dollar, the book itself fails to carry it's own weight. Page for page, better value can be found elsewhere, such as Bridal Bargains by Denise and Alan Fields. There wasn't a single idea in Priceless Weddings that I didn't find in Bridal Bargains.
