    Hi All,
    Everyone on here as been so nice sharing their tips and tricks I thought I should post on here about a book I am reading called Bridal Bargains by Denise and Alan Fields. This book got popular quick when the Oprah show picked it up.

    The book basically tells all the things the bridal industry does to separate brides from their money. Some of thing things I have read in here blow my mind! One of the recurring topics is the "Bridal Markup" and how just by saying wedding, business will bump up their prices.

    It talks about the tricks bridal stores plays when you are dress shopping/buying and how to get your dress at a HUGE discount. They also talk about flowers and how to get them at much lower prices. How to bargain with different vendors... Ok so the list could go on and on since the book has 450 pages and it deals with everything from flowers, to dresses, to venues.

    I hope this helps everyone. The book was the BEST $15 I have ever spent. Carla :)

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

          It doesn't surprise me that there is a huge markup on anything that is wedding related. Why not if they can get away with it, right? And people wonder why it is soooooo expensive to get married now a days. It is crazy. Thanks for sharing the info on the book. There will be a lot of people that can hopefully benefit from it.

              There is also a great online forum created by the writers. (I used the Baby Bargains books like a bible) :)

                Thanks for the forum link. You can get lots of info from it. I have already bought my dress but I think I am going to get the book anyway.
