When my friends told me they were getting married I was so happy for them. They were about to embark on a new chapter and begin a life together. But when they asked me to plan and manage their wedding I thought to myself, “Oh no… me? Really? How?” And then they told me not to worry too much about it, they weren’t expecting a whole lot. Great, not only were they asking a huge and stressful task of me, but they had very little confidence in me. I must have been the last person they asked, after all, who wants the stress of creating the perfect day for a couple? But I told them I would do it and that was either the dumbest or the smartest thing I’ve ever done. Because despite stumbling around for a few days I discovered what I call the perfect wedding budget checklist and planned the best night of my friends lives.
As a true fan of Tim Ferris, the man who wrote the books “The 4-Hour Workweek“, “The 4-Hour Body” and “The 4-Hour Chef“, I believe in what is called the 80/20 principle which basically says most of what we do in anything is a waste of time and that it’s better to concentrate on the 20% of what makes 80% of the difference. Basically that just means I’m sort of lazy and like to find the minimal work I need to do to make it look like I’m expert.
So when I started planning this wedding I kept that in mind. I need to find resources that give me basic step by step instructions on how to plan a wedding. I need a resource to tell me everything I need to do down to which color of flowers I need to buy. Because basically, I had no clue. After going through website after website and getting meaningless advice from my mom and grandma I stumbled across the guide I was looking for. It’s called “Your Perfect Wedding” and it’s written by Andrew Hill.
I of course had some skepticism about buying a guide online but I was desperate, this needed to be the best night of my friends lives. Luckily, it turned out to be the best and luckiest purchase I’ve ever made. An even better purchase than the “4-Hour Body” which has allowed me to stay in shape with very little work.
The wedding was beautiful. I went with a classic theme, but of course I followed a few extra tips throughout the guide. (It’s not something you have to follow exactly but will give you VERY clear instructions.)
Hang on, take another look at that ugly mug over to the right under “Who Am I?”. Does that look like the person who comes up with the idea above? Of course not. I was simply inspired by this guide, it’s that good, and that’s why I want to share it with as many people as possible. I want to bring the big wedding back. Enough of this kids eloping business, weddings are supposed to be big, they’re supposed to be fun, they’re supposed to merge families, they’re supposed to make everyone smile… And that’s what this guide helps anybody, including me and you, do.
If you’ve got a wedding to plan stop worrying, stop stressing, it’s easy, all you need is this guide. If you need wedding ideas for spring 2013 or fall 2013 this is the guide for you.
