Bessy Vazzocchi pops every wedding bubble you may have in this hilariously outspoken guide to planning your wedding and brings you back down to earth. She shares tips and tricks she’s picked up over the years, as well as mortifying stories from brides, grooms and bridesmaids alike to help you realize what not to do leading up to your big day. Scan barcodes that will take you to templates, checklists and spreadsheets to help keep you organized but most importantly keep you sane. Even more importantly, she’ll tell you what you DON’T need to get down the aisle in less than a year with a budget that won’t require you to take out a second mortgage. This isn’t a book about hydrangeas and baby’s-breath. There are enough of those. This is a book that attempts to show couples what really matters when planning a wedding and what doesn’t. It reminds them that there is life after the wedding day; it’s called marriage, and that’s what they should be focusing on.
