Dear beautiful bride-to-be...

LET'S FACE IT: FIGURING OUT HOW TO PLAN A WEDDING IS NO CAKE-WALK.

One moment you're saying "Yes!" and the next moment you're in over
your head, figuring how to plan a wedding, organizing bridesmaids'
dresses, venues, caterers, photographers, centerpieces, transportation
arrangements, wedding favors.... arrgh!

You're a busy gal and with all this extra work you're stressed,
you're overwhelmed, and it looks like your budget is going to flutter
out the window like a bridal veil in the wind.

It almost happened to me when I was planning my wedding.

As an event planner, I thought I'd have it easier than most. I mean,
how different can it be? But even with my experience, I was still
running around in a tizzy, stressed beyond belief, with my poor
fiancé bearing the brunt of it and freaking out over our dwindling
budget!

Affordable Wedding Planning For Real People

Like you, I was scouring the internet and the library for "real
people" information, but it was all written for brides with huge
budgets, or it was just so vague and fluffy that it didn't give me
anything to work with.

I would buy magazines and flip to the "budget" section, only to see
that even their "budget" ideas were out of my league!

I was supposed to be planning my Big Day, but instead I was being
made to feel like a second-class citizen because I didn't have $30,000
to play with.

I was really beginning to think that a Las Vegas drive-thru wedding
was my only option...

THEN IT CLICKED:
ALL I HAD TO DO WAS K.I.S.S...

On the way home from work I had one of those cartoon lightbulb
moments and I realized two things:

FIRSTLY, THE IMPORTANCE OF THAT OLD SAYING: Keep it simple, stupid!
(But of course, I'm not stupid and neither are you. So I decided to
make it "Keep it Simple but Special"!)

SECONDLY… YES, A WEDDING IS AN AGE-OLD TRADITION FRAUGHT WITH
EXPECTATION, RULES AND ETIQUETTE: But this wedding was MY wedding, and
I would darn-well do it the way I wanted!

I DECIDED I WASN'T AFRAID TO BREAK A FEW "RULES" IF IT HELPED KEEP
THINGS SIMPLE, SPECIAL, AND ON BUDGET!

When I talked to my married friends, they all agreed that if they
had to do it all over again, that's what they'd do: Keep it simple,
set their own priorities, and forget what the "experts" say!

With these ideas in mind, I was able to "think outside the box" and
come up with ideas that gave me the fabulous day I wanted, while
getting everything done on an $8000 budget -- raw silk dress and full
bar service included!

Since then I have met so many brides-to-be who are struggling to find
a balance between their fantasy wedding and the realities of budgets,
families and booking schedules. Not to mention all the advice we get
for how to plan a wedding that's totally perfect.

They lose themselves in the details, and forget the big picture. It
is for you I have written this guide. For you independent, strong,
creative women who know what you want, but are not quite sure how to
get it.

You lovely ladies who know that tradition has it's place, but that
you also have to stand up and put the stamp of your own style on this
day. For all of you with big dreams, but modest budgets...

_ I'M GOING TO TEACH YOU HOW TO K.I.S.S!_

DON'T BE MISLED BY SO-CALLED
\"WEDDING EXPERTS"….

How many times have you been told that 12% of your budget should be
spent on photography, 8% on flowers, 3% on rings, 48% on the
reception, and so on?

For most brides, this kind of prescription is like a security
blanket: "There's so much that needs to be done!" you cry. "And it's
so overwhelming!

Yes, it's really nice to have someone telling you what to do when
figuring out how to plan a wedding.

But the problem is that these guidelines are not necessarily YOU.
They don't know what your priorities are. You might not have a big
budget, but you might want to spend much more than 3% on rings: After
all, they're going to be the lasting symbol of your marriage, and
something you wear every day for the rest of your life.

When you follow a prescription like this you just end up with a
version of someone else's wedding fantasy.

KISSING IS ABOUT SETTING YOUR OWN PRIORITIES: Deciding where you want
to spend the money, and which fussy old traditions can be kicked to
the curb. (Do you really need bathroom kits, for instance?)

KISSing is about being organized and knowing what is expected at
every step, and then either finding a simple, affordable and
stress-free way to do it... or giving it the flick!

KISSing is about getting the wedding you want without the stress and
budget blowouts. And that's what I'm about to show you...

INTRODUCING "PERFECT WEDDINGS WITHOUT DEBT"

"Help! Where Do I Start!"

If I had a dollar for every time I've heard that from a bride trying
to learn how to plan a wedding, I could finance a pretty snazzy
wedding!

To be honest, most of us have attended weddings before, but not many
of us have been involved in orchestrating one until it's our turn.

So for many brides, the second response to being popped the question
(after "Yes!" and "Yay!") is typically: "Oh my god... where do I
begin?!"

How To Save Thousands When Planning Your Wedding

Relax! Part of KISSing is being organized and knowing what comes
when, so that you don't end up in tears on your wedding day. In my
guide I make sure you know everything about how to plan a wedding and
save money when you....

Set the date...

Establish a registry...

Write and address invitations...

Choose a venue...

How to write your invites and invite labels...

Choose a photographer...

How to pick a theme, with lots of ideas...

Wedding ceremony traditions and customs...

Hire a caterer and choose food & drinks...

Pick the wedding ceremony and reception music...

Decor ideas and flowers...

Plan rehearsals & the rehearsal dinner...

Find the perfect dress for you and your bridesmaids...

Plan the perfect honeymoon...

Tie everything up after the big day...

And more!...

BUT KNOWING HOW TO PLAN A WEDDING IS JUST ONE PART OF THE EQUATION.
YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO DO THEM ON YOUR BUDGET, ACCORDING TO YOUR
PRIORITIES.

_LET'S FACE IT: _Sometimes you want to be a penny pincher, and
sometimes you want Martha Stewart! And each wedding can have a little
of both!

NONE OF THE GUIDES I FOUND UNDERSTOOD THAT (SEEMINGLY SIMPLE)
CONCEPT: That sometimes I wanted to splurge, but other times I wanted
to scrimp. They wanted me to be either 100% Martha Stewart or 100%
Destitute Bride.

SO I BUILT THIS IDEA INTO MY BOOK AT EVERY STEP...

THE SPLURGE, SAVE OR SCRIMP
METHOD WILL SAVE YOU THOUSANDS!

In the K.I.S.S WEDDING GUIDE I show you every aspect of a traditional
wedding from three angles, and you can pick which option to run with:

SPLURGE: Money is no problem! This is the "Martha Stewart" option,
for when decadence and perfection is paramount.

SAVE: Take a short step back, simplify a little, and you can save
yourself quite a lot of money while still getting what you want!

SCRIMP: Have your wedding cake and eat it too: I show you how to be a
classy penny-pincher on those parts of your wedding that you think
aren't so mission critical.

Which one you choose depends on what you think is more important: I'm
not here to boss you around. I'm here to give you the alternatives.

IN THESE EXTRA GOODIES... (CONSIDER THEM AN
EARLY WEDDING PRESENT!)

The fastest cure for wedding stress is a healthy dose of
organization, so I have created the mother of all wedding planner
checklists to sort out that clutter in your head!

Step-by-step Wedding Organizer

Inside you'll find over _80 PAGES_ of step-by-step advice and
printable worksheets for helping you brainstorm and plan every single
aspect of your wedding... budgets, guest lists, venues, wedding dress,
bridal party, caterers, photographer, music, invitations, wedding
cake... the works!

A Wedding Checklist That Simplifies Planning

By the way... Did you know that most of the printable checklists you
find in other wedding guides can actually make you more stressed when
you're trying to figure out how to plan a wedding?

It's true! They're very good at telling you what you need to do 9
months before your wedding, or 6 months before your wedding... but
then they leave you sitting around twiddling your thumbs until your
wedding day is pretty much on top of you!

Not here! My wedding planner checklist keeps you steadily chugging
away for the whole time, so that you're not left with a mad rush to
the finish line! Why put something off until one month before the
wedding, when you can get it out of the way three months before the
wedding and spend that last month dealing with more important matters?

But it's not just a checklist... I show you EXACTLY what you need to
be doing at every moment leading up to your wedding, and I top it up
with timely advice for tackling each section.

THIS ISN'T JUST A CHECKLIST... it's a full-blown, stress-busting,
brain-organizing workbook! You're going to love it!

DON'T LET YOUR SUPPLIERS WALK ALL OVER YOU!

We've all heard those warnings about unscrupulous suppliers. You
know, the ones who double the price as soon as you mention that
"wedding" word...

I'm not saying this doesn't happen sometimes, but often it's the
case that these "price hikes" and "scams" are really just the result
of brides not knowing how to negotiate effectively!

Easy Ways To Get The Best Deal

The secret to getting the best price on your catering, photography,
venue or flowers is knowing when to ask for more, when to ask for a
discount, and when to simply walk away from a deal. It's about asking
the right questions, being a little bit tougher, and knowing when a
supplier is trying to take you for a ride (when they're not the limo
driver!)

In KISS Negotiation Secrets I'm going to share with you my tried and
tested negotiation tactics that can save you thousands of dollars, and
help you avoid some of the common tricks that suppliers will try to
pull on you.
