Wedding experts Denise and Alan Fields say it isn't necessary to spend the nationwide average of 11 months of planning and $20,000 for a fabulous wedding. In this new edition of the bridal bargain bible, they outline specific budgets for beautiful weddings that cost a fraction of the average price.

This edition includes reviews and ratings of more than 50 new bridal gown designers, tips on surfing the Web and saving on honeymoon costs, and a guide to the best online wedding bargains in the aftermath of the dot-com shake-up. The authors explode the "three costly myths" about wedding catering, show how to negotiate a great deal on a ceremony and reception site, and point prospective brides and grooms toward savings on invitations, flowers, wedding videos, entertainment, and more.
