*Since the readership of the Mother of the Bride Blog is ever-changing, here is an encore post that I hope will be helpful to those of you who weren’t MOBs when I originally posted it in June of 2013. I’ve updated the info and links. Hope it helps!
Don’t you love it when buying an item ends up saving you money? Bridal Bargains—Secrets to Throwing A Fantastic Wedding On A Realistic Budget by Denise and Allan Fields will do just that. And not only will it save you money, it will save you time and potential headaches as well.
Bridal Bargains was the first purchase I made as a mother of the bride. Among lots of other great information, it alerted me to certain bridal shop practices/policies to guard against, and I’m so glad it did. It pays to have a little knowledge tucked up your MOB sleeve when making your foray into shopping for wedding gowns—or any other wedding-related item for that matter.
The Fields are nationally known in the wedding planning world for their efforts as consumer advocates, and Bridal Bargains is in its 11th edition. Every engaged couple—and mother of the bride—needs the help found in this book.
MOB, run out and get your hands on a copy of this book today. You won’t be sorry!
