I should have heeded the other reviewers before I bought this book because it really is much too traditional for the kind of wedding I'm planning. I would call this book a guide about cutting corners (ie, planning on a budget) or advice on veering from only the very traditional. I suppose a book like this is difficult to write, as those of us planning more "modern" weddings only have to use a bit of creativity to get what we're after. I found the wedding websites much more useful and up-to-date in this department.

That said, I did get the Anti-Bride Wedding Planner for my future sister-in-law, who despite planning a very traditional, formal wedding, considers herself an anti-bride at heart!

I didn't really see how this differed from any of the other wedding books out there. I still felt as though I needed to have a lot of money/resources in order to have a fabulous day.The book doesn't really help you think outside the box.

This book is everything the review said it would be. I was pleased with the amount of info within that I hadn't already seen elsewhere on the web.

This book is filled with info that will assist any bride. Definitely happy with my purchase! Using it as my main guide.

Meh. The other negative reviews were right. This book was about as "out of the box" as the wedding sections in Cosmo or Glamour and seemed geared towards women with lots of money, time, and inclination to plan a wedding.

The format of the book is like this:

Veils: Who says you have to wear a veil? You totally don't. But if you want one, here is the same advice on veils that you get in any bridal magazine of wedding planning book.

Bouquet: Who says you have to carry a bouquet? You don't have to! But if you want to here is some completely unoriginal crap that the authors copied and pasted out of a tepid and shallow bridal article...

The book actually listed alternative colors for wedding gowns, such as green, brown, orange, silver, and ruby. You mean, if i don't want to wear white, I can wear another color??? How utterly original! I never would have thought of that one on my own!

You get the idea.

There's some serious product placement going on here, too. So the author is "friends" with someone at Benefit Cosmetics who then gives advice on wedding make-up. (First tip: Use Benefit Cosmetics!) Surprise, Benefit Cosmetics is the first listing in the Make-up section of the Resource Guide. Give me a break.

I was irritated by the author's constant reference to her own wedding but in the third person, as if she had collected testimonials from other brides. Gerin's wedding stories are about how she had to have a wedding on each coast and a party in France and offered such innovative and fresh advice like "Drink lots of water on the plane."

The practical advice is okay, but was covered with more accuracy and completeness in the other books I bought.

I did get a couple solid slices of advice from this book which is how it earned one star. I honestly appreciate the "Anti-Bride Timeline" on page 128, the Beauty Countdown on page 122 (get waxed two days before your wedding... check!), and the Day-of Checklist on page 135. I am hard pressed to imagine that I will use much else from this book, however.

If you find this used for less than $1, go for it. The checklists are worth it. But if you already have any other bridal guide, there's no point in getting this one. Putting a retro-graphics cover on the same, tired old crap doesn't make it interesting. It just makes it another bridal industry rip-off.

If you are looking for a different, not-so-serious take on being a bride, you'll enjoy this book. It's true that some of the ideas require big bucks and you may not have an enormous budget but this book is hilarious and is full of great and unusual wedding ideas, from sites to favors. I laughed out loud at some of their crazy ideas and then wrote them down copiously!
I really think this is a must-read for the non-traditional bride. I checked it out at the library and read it cover to cover. One huge help: the authors have included a 'Day of' checklist that will be quite useful. Sadly, some of their web resources in the back of the book came up invalid for me.
Look, some of the other reviewers don't have a sense of humor and must be resentful of those that have a lot of money to spend. I have a tiny (I mean TINY) budget and I can still appreciate some of the extraordinary weddings mentioned in the book...if only for a chuckle!

This book is a fun, entertaining read packed with inspiration and planning help for the couple who wants a unique, but still elegant, experience rather than the cookie-cutter traditional wedding. If you think outside the box, and the idea of copying every other bride before you makes you cringe, this is the book for you.

Some reviewers say this book isn't "different" enough. True, it won't outline how to have a Goth wedding or skydiving shower. But it definitely will help you put your own unique personality into your event without being so far "out there" that you cause family members to faint. I think this is a great book for the unique bride who wants to be different in a way that will surprise people (in a good way) rather than shock people (in a bad way.) I think it is different.
