Product description


"Every bride could learn something--and cut her stress level--just by reading it."


"Fun to read (she's got such an approachable tone, very entertaining, just like her blog) and really informative as well."

QuirkyGirlsRead.com, 1/9/12

"A fantastically fun, humorous, and SANE book for any woman navigating the trying waters of wedding planning."

BookPage ("top pick"), February 2012
"Expect a big-hearted, broad-minded, super smart low-down on the indispensable practicalities of getting married."

Portland Book Review, March/April Issue

"Keene offers couples of all faiths, ages, budgets and sexual orientation a wise and well-written hands-on guide for navigating the complexities of etiquette and cultural expectation. (Five Stars)"

Wellesley Free Library Staff Picks (blog), 3/30/12
"If you have a wedding coming up or know someone who does, treat them to this title. It will be one of the best presents they receive!"

Savannah Morning News, 4/18


"Getting married with grace, joy, and even fun without breaking the bank is what Meg Keene offers the marrying couple with this handy guide book. It's small and short enough to read in one sitting as well as filled with myriad details to refer to when you're ready to plan the various aspects of your upcoming wedding."

Library Journal, 12/23/11

"Keene's wedding planning guide is a fresh, sane voice in a field of guides pushing big budget weddings...Keene's book stands out as she empowers brides to find the elements of wedding planning that are meaningful to them and to let go of the rest without regrets or apology. Verdict: Recommended and required reading for all newly engaged couples. Public libraries would be wise to include this practical guide in their collections."

ElissaRPhotography.com, 12/22/11

"This book will be a touchstone of sanity. When you get derailed by something judgmental your Aunt Muriel said, or you feel inadequate because your wedding doesn't look like something perfectly styled on the pages of a magazine or wedding blog, and you start to reevaluate and question your choices, this book will set you back on the path to stability and reason."

PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, 1/10/12
