Baumgartner, 24, sees two markets in the wedding business. One consists of people who can afford a lavish wedding with all the trimmings, and that's fine, says Baumgartner. But there is another clientele made up of people who live on a tight budget, including working women who plan on paying for their own weddings...The problem, she says, is that the wedding industry doesn't seem to cater to these people, which is why she wrote "Escape The Expense." -- The Times -- Community Consolidated Newspapers

As a seamstress, who has been commissioned for several weddings, I really appreciated the sound advice given in this easy to read manual. The overall structure of the content is not only informative but continues to be up-to-date even after nine years in publication. The pictures are timeless and the information is adaptable to all tastes and styles. If you are looking for tips to save money on a do-it-yourself wedding, this small book is a fine place to begin. It covers everything from renting or sewing to purchasing wedding attire. Flowers and food and personal attention are all addressed in such a way that the advice will still be apropos for years to come. This book is a great alternative for a wedding consultant, much less expensive, and well worth the price.
