A Practical Wedding: Creative Ideas for Planning a Beautiful, Affordable, and Meaningful Celebration - Meg Keene I've only been engaged for over a week, but have been brainstorming like crazy about what type of wedding we should have. All I knew is that it would be a simple and small wedding, but the stress was already getting to me. Now after reading this book, I feel a lot more calm about the upcoming planning. I know I will get stressed again once the planning begins, so I will be picking up this book again to reread whatever chapters that are relevant in that moment of the planning.

This book taught me a lot about what weddings are truly about and to not worry about the little things. In the end, it's about having a good time with friends and family celebrating the start of your new formed family.
