Attention Broke-Ass Brigade!

Please join us for the Big BAB Book Buy next Monday, November 18th, which is the day my book hits the warehouse. Inspired by my brilliant friend Meg at APW when her book dropped, the plan is simple: getting a book up the Amazon bestseller list for a couple of days isn’t impossible, because it takes only hundreds of sales, rather than thousands or more, to get there.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN. Our goal is to get as many people as possible to buy the BAB book on the same day, to propel it up the Amazon ranking chart, which will be very exciting for a first-time author such as myself, and might get us a little extra attention along the way to help promote it!  Your support will let the wedding world and publishing industry know that we need more representation and resources for couples who want to rock bad-ass weddings without breaking the bank. That there’s a big difference between spending smart and being cheap. That our personalities and values should be reflected in the execution of our wedding, not dampened under layers of predicable tulle and lace. That we’re broke-ass brides and proud of it, damnit! How amazing would that be, yo?!?

And I need you guys to help make it happen. But first, here’s a little taste of the delicious cake I’m serving up, to whet your palates for more! Scroll on through the excerpt to see a sneak peek of the book!

Not too shabby, eh? Packed with wedding planning tips and tricks, advice from real broke-ass brides (like you!), DIY craft tutorials, recipes and sample budgets from real brides… I think this book delivers quite a powerful punch! Like, spiked punch, yo. DRANK.

The Big BAB Book Buy will take place on Monday November 18th. Perfect holiday timing to buy for yourself, as a gift for your newly-engaged friends or family, or for anyone helping you plan your wedding, or their own! It will be delivered on December 17th – the day the book appears in stores!  You can order the book through:

(But don’t order it yet! Wait until the 18th!!!)

If we can get The Broke-Ass Bride’s Wedding Guide to be a best-seller, even if only for a day, it will bring much-needed attention to our little corner of the internet, give strength to a value system that doesn’t get enough credit in the wedding industry, and help grow our community exponentially!

Please spread the word, and gear up for the big day!
