A Practical Wedding Planner. This follow-up to A Practical Wedding from author Meg Keene will leave you armed with a step-by-step guide on how to budget for the wedding of your dreams. A companion to Keene’s first book, this book will help you prioritize what’s important — and learn how to feel comfortable letting go of the rest.

The Knot Outdoor Weddings. Spring and summer are coming — all the more reason to pick up a copy of this guide to throwing an outdoor celebration that you and your guests will never forget. The book is a collection of 50 real weddings, complete with all the details on the modern flourishes that will make your big day one of a kind.

Grow Your Own Wedding Flowers. If flowers are a budget line you’re looking to trim down, you need this book — a detailed and gorgeous account of exactly how to grow and arrange your own wedding flowers (no experts required). Whether you want to whip up your own flower crowns, boutonnieres, even your bridal bouquet, you’ll feel up to the challenge, thanks to help from this book.

The Little White Book of Wedding Planning Wisdom. Sometimes the best decisions come after listening to the experiences of others. This book is stocked with advice related to every step of the wedding process — from the moment you get engaged all the way through saying “I Do.”

Budgeting for your wedding day can be a challenge. So many times, brides hem and haw over what to keep and what to cut from their list of expenditures. Photography is one of the few expenses that just isn’t optional. But what about a videographer? We caught up with F. Mike Henriques, artistic director and lead filmmaker over at Artistic Wedding Films, to find out the top 5 reasons a wedding videographer is essential to your big day.

Film is the best way to re-live your wedding day. Your day will go by so quickly. Seeing portions of your day that you were not present for like the bride and groom preparation, cocktail hour and wedding party introductions that you may have missed is an incredible keepsake and so fun.

Don’t think of videography as the long, boring videos of years past. Wedding videography has evolved. Videos are creative, story-based short films that will evoke the emotions you felt on your wedding day. They act as a time machine to bring you back to your day. Your photographs will remind you of the special moments, but the film allows you to re-live that moment again.

Technology has also advanced. The quality of the cameras, the audio equipment and the overall footage is going to rival what is being produced in a Hollywood movie or quality TV programming.

You get to choose from a ton of special effects. Options like same day edits, time-lapse video and aerial cinematography allow us to enhance the production value of a wedding film. It’s going to look amazing, especially when it’s produced well.

Weddings are a pretty big moment in your life. Think of it this way — it’s not often that your family and friends will gather this way in the same room. Aging family members are closer to not being with us and it’s a fantastic way to memorialize these special people.
