Book Review for NetGalley

"Dream Wedding on a Dime" authored by Bobette Kyle

This book is jam-packed with advice, tips, tricks, and hints for planning a wedding & reception on a budget but not be cheap.  The 7 secrets are Smart Money works for you ~ who is paying for what & how, Time does more than tick ~ plan ahead and be organized, Treasures lie Upon the Road Less Traveled ~ look into non-wedding vendors as a resource, Recycling Saves More than the Planet ~ it can save your budget too!, Blending is Best ~ mixing new with do it yourself items for your day, Ask & Receive ~ ask for discounts, look for volunteers, ask for cash to help pay for the wedding as your wedding gift, and Stack & Save ~ stacking coupons or discounts, can items serve more than one purpose...ceremony & reception.  With the prices of todays weddings skyrocketing ~ this is a great down to earth resource for the couple who wants a nice day but doesn't want to pay exorbitant prices for everything involved.

This book was of particular interest to me because we were in on the planning of 3 of our childrens weddings in the last 2 years ~ 2 of them were just 6 1/2 months apart!  We utilized many of these suggestions for our family weddings & will be rereading the book before our next 4 walk down the aisles.  The book contains many awesome ideas for having a nice day without going bankrupt! 

I was given this book by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review ~ Donna Jackson
