Contest: Enter to Win a Practical Wedding Planning Book


Hooray! It's free giveaway time!

I'm happy to be offering not one but two copies of Meg Keene's new book, A Practical Wedding: Creative Ideas for Planning a Beautiful, Affordable, and Meaningful Celebration. Have you seen it sweeping the nation? It's about time that more sane, grounded ideas about wedding planning hit the shelves.

Here's a little sampling of the gems in the book:
"A whole industry is set up to sell you a beautiful wedding; it's set up to sell you how things will look. But what matters on your wedding day, what you will remember until you are old and gray, is how it felt."

You can read an excerpt here, and then you can enter to win the whole book for yourself (or a friend, since it's often a good idea to dispense sane wedding advice to the people around us who are planning weddings).

To enter to win a free copy of A Practical Wedding:
  • Leave a comment with your first name and the first two letters of your last name (only one entry per person please, but definitely send your significant other over to enter, too!)
  • Enter by Sunday, February 12, 11:59pm ET
  • Cross your fingers and stay tuned to see who wins the following Monday!

My apologies, but the publisher has asked that we limit entries to US and Canadian addresses.

Here's the reclaiming the real purpose of weddings! Happy Entering!
