Today I just wanted to share a quick post with you of some of the best books I’ve found for brides on a budget! Of course, there’s TONS of information and inspiration available on the internet (like this here blog, ya know!) but sometimes you just want a physical book – something you can hold in your hands. If that’s your style, check out these recommended reads below!
Budget Wedding Planning Guides
The Broke-Ass Bride’s Wedding Guide by Dana LaRue
My pal Dana aka The Broke-Ass Bride, wrote a great book for budget brides. Her book is much like her blog- full of quirky humor and bursting with valuable advice and tips. This is a must-have guide for brides on a budget!
A Practical Wedding by Meg Keene
A Practical Wedding takes a no-nonsense approach to wedding planning. This book gives brides permission to FORGET THE RULES and do what makes YOU happy. I’ve always loved Meg’s practical and down-to-earth advice, and I think you will, too!
Wedding Project Ideas
Rustic Chic Wedding by Morgann Hill
This book is full of creative and crafty projects that you can DIY for your wedding! Since many of our readers are into the rustic style, this book is perfect for you!! I especially love the photographs in this book- it’s truly stunning!
The Handcrafted Wedding by Emma Arendoski
The Handcrafted Wedding has over 300 ideas to take your wedding day from mundane to magnificent with the help of crafts and handmade projects. Personalizing your day with DIY is one of the best ways to leave a great impression on your guests, without costing a fortune! LOVE this book!
Money & Budgeting for General Life
Financially Fearless by Alexa Von Tobel, LearnVest CEO
As you all know, I’m a HUGE LearnVest fan. So when their CEO published her book, I knew I had to get my hands on a copy. This book is a must-read for getting your personal finances in order and planning for the future with your spouse!
I read this book when I was in college- my dad gave me a copy of it as a gift. I’d say that this book definitely shaped the way I look at money and debt and has kept me on the straight and narrow when it comes to finances. A true must-read for anyone — especially if you’re currently in debt!!
