A few things this week for Wedding Wednesday. The first is a book given to me by Richard’s adorable cousin, Natalie. She told me one of her girlfriends called it “The Bible” :)
The Wedding Book
The Big Book for your Big Day by Mindy Weiss with Lisbeth Levine
I am only half way through it but it has such great advice and gives you the low down on EVERYTHING. The author is a wedding planner and she takes into consideration all budgets, religions & tastes. It helps with all the nitty gritty details that might not come to mind right away as you start to plan your wedding.
The chapters are as follows:
Chapter 1: Spreading the News, Chapter 2: Creating the Budget, Chapter 3: A Date and Place, Chapter 4: Building Your Team, Chapter 5: The Guest List, Chapter 6: Planning the Ceremony, Chapter 7: Making Memories (Photography), Chapter 8: Planning the Menu, Chapter 9: Music & Dancing, Chapter 10: Spirits, Wine & Bubbly, Chapter 11: The Nitty Gritty (transportation, tents, etc.), Chapter 12: Making It Legal, Chapter 13: The Gift Registry, Chapter 14: Parties, Parties, Parties (showers, bachelorette parties, expectations, etc.), Chapter 15: Saying Thank You, Chapter 16: The Dress, Chapter 17: Dressing the Women, Chapter 18: Dressing the Men, Chapter 19: Just Gorgeous (hair/makeup), Chapter 20: The Invitations, Chapter 21: Creating The Look, Chapter 22: Favors & Gifts, Chapter 23: The Sweet Finale (cake), Chapter 24: The Weeks Before, Chapter 25: Getting Ready, Chapter 26: Here Comes the Bride, Chapter 27: Mr. & Mrs.
Clearly there is a lot to think about! The page markers are my favorite – they are similar to what they have in Lucky Magazine. See the tab options below.
You can purchase this book (it is an amazing engagement gift) on Amazon here.
The second is a youtube video that will definitely give you a good laugh.
And the third is – BLAKE AND RYAN?! SO excited about this and cannot wait to see photos.
The Martha Stewart Weddings exclusive tells us that Blake and her bridesmaids wore Marchesa and that Ryan wore Burberry. Of course her bridesmaids wore Louboutins (lucky b*tches).
The wedding was at the Boone Hall Plantation in South Carolina where the Notebook was filmed – adorable.
People Magazine will have exclusive details on everything from her dress to the ring on newsstands Friday!
