Hey All!

As you all know I’m getting married! The Queen has had her King for a very long time and now we’ve decided to make it official. I knew I needed to enlist the help of my favorite line of books, the Dummies books, since I like quick learning and easy fixes to problems. Wedding Planning For Dummies, 3rd Edition is just what I needed for my wedding planning extravaganza. Planning a wedding can be hard, so any guidance you can get is awesome! This book isn’t a book for Dummies obviously. It’s simply what the book line is called. I take my book with me to bed every night and every night it gives me a great new tip for planning our geektastic muppet themed wedding. Yep you heard me right. We’re having a Muppet Geek Wedding filled with Muppets at the Jim Henson Studio lot.


This book is concise, well written and will teach you how to plan your Wedding quickly. My favorite Chapters and sections are:

Chapter 2: Avoiding Those Wedding-Bill Blues (I know I don’t want another stack of bills)

Chapter 4: Venue Victories: Finding the Ideal Location (Location is key)

Part III: Ceremony Survival Guide (We have to survive the Ceremony)

Chapter 11: Selecting the Perfect Florist and Arrangements (The Right Flowers are everything)


This book covers everything from where to find the best venues, to the caterers, and any other problems involved with a wedding, you’ll find the answers in this amazing book. A lot of people can’t afford a wedding planner and if you’re one of those like I am, this book will be a lifesaver. It’s truly a must have if you’re planning your own wedding!

Wedding Planning For Dummies demystifies and simplifies all the details that go into the Big Day, providing inspiration and innovative ideas to personalize your wedding celebration and, of course, make it fun for everyone–especially you! Expert wedding planner Marcy Blum walks you step-by-step through everything you’ll encounter as you plan your wedding, from choosing a reception site to picking a photographer—and everything in between.

If you got the previous versions of the book, you might want to update as this new book also contains:

  • 20% new and updated content
  • Keep track of expenses with a wedding budget
  • Negotiate contracts and surf online for wedding deals
  • Get those pesky financial technicalities out of the way
  • Plan a weekend wedding, a themed wedding, same sex wedding, and other celebrations
  • Plan for various wedding customs and rites
  • Throw a great reception with music, food, drink, and cake
  • The 4-1-1 on the latest and greatest trends in wedding registries, rings, photos, and the honeymoon

I love this book as it’s jam packed with tips for saving money and great tips on how to plan your Big Day.

You can make your wedding a dream come true with the help of this book. I’m sure our small wedding is going to be the most geektastic wedding in Hollywood thanks to the Wedding Planning For Dummies book, 3rd Edition.
