If you are planning a wedding, your first step should be to seek the advice of wedding industry professionals for guidance – people whose livelihood depends on producing successful results.
If it’s in your budget, I always recommend using the services of wedding professionals for your wedding. But I also realize that for many couples, that may not be possible.
If it’s not in your budget, or you just enjoy the doing things yourself, the easiest and most inexpensive way to get great advice is to read and observe what the experts do.
Often, planning a wedding can be reduced to simple steps. Sure, creativity and inspiration factor in, but there is nothing like being able to look over the shoulder of someone who does it for a living.
Books are one of the best and inexpensive ways to do this. Every recognizable wedding industry expert is a published author as well.
There are a lot of great wedding books for the bride-to-be to choose from. There are books that provide planning advice, ideas and inspiration for your ceremony, wedding etiquette, flowers, and gowns.
There are books that help you stay focused on your wedding plans by providing calendars, timelines, worksheets and checklists.
Here is a list of the current best-selling wedding books, some that are available for pennies on the dollar. Many of them can be downloaded instantly.
If you need a little professional advice, it’s a great place to start…
