Wedding Planning for the Busy Feminist Book
Wedding Planning For the Busy Feminist is filled with practical, funny advice from real brides, grooms and vendors about how to plan your dream wedding on a budget. It's also an empowering survival guide that examines how modern women feel conflicted about outdated traditions and expensive social media fantasies but kinda want the perfect wedding anyway. With tons of tips, interviews and funny stories, the book is about everything from dress shopping and confusing caterer gratuities to Pinterest anxiety and managing your partner's role in the process. Wedding planning can be stressful, so I'm here to make it easier - with advice like "nothing sexes up a ceremony like a hot usher" and true stories about what to do when your Maid of Honor drops out because of WrestleMania. The book dives into wedding planning, wedding budgets, dresses, wedding timelines, family drama, self-care, elopements, DIY decor, receptions, ceremonies, vows, speeches, changing your name, bachelor parties and bachelorette parties, photographers, themes, hashtags, favors and more. The appendix alone has over 300 bridal gown designers, accessory designers, plus size designers, decor inspiration, resale sites, invitations, favors, wedding apps and license information. I won't push you to include or exclude any particular tradition - my mantra is "you do you!"
