“Wonderful, unique and tasteful budget solutions!! I wanted my wedding to be beautiful and classic but also uniquely us. I found this to be very difficult, particularly with the fact that my fiancée and I were paying for our wedding ourselves and were on a limited budget. Cindy’s book was full of great ideas that kept a budget in mind. I had a lot of wedding books that I had bought or had been given, and they all pretty much said the same things. However, The Frugal Bride was, thankfully, much different! It had lots of creative and fun ideas and really helped us make our day special.”

“Looking for a way to cut some wedding costs. I like many other brides out there had a budget that I HAD to stick to no matter what. I don’t come from money and I wasn’t marrying into it either. So when looking around at bridal books on tips and ideas I came across this one and hoped it to be everything it states on the front of it. The books itself is not too bad. It has many tips for ways to cut costs or avoid them all together. I mean some of it is common sense like making alot of your own things and well if you have a year to plan a wedding you may have time to do just that. I bought it used pretty cheap and it’s not a bad guide to have if you are planning a wedding. Just don’t buy it if you don’t have alot of time to invest in the wedding because having a cheaper wedding requires alot of time and effort on the bride’s part. I know:)”
