The High Street Bride’s Guide

A new e-book by Samantha Birch discovers how to tie the knot in style – without blowing your budget

You can say your vows in a catwalk gown so beautiful it reduces your mum to tears (and not because she paid for it). You can style a reception so stunning your guests won’t believe you didn’t hire an A-list planner. And you can sprinkle the day with personal touches that make everyone feel like you gave them special attention before they even got there - without spending a house deposit on it. Honest.

Samantha Birch has written for Glamour, Brides, You & Your Wedding and Cosmopolitan Bride. She knows a thing or two about planning a wedding on a budget, how much you can expect to pay for everything and where to go to get it for less. And she’s put it all down here, inspired by her own struggle to save for her wedding.

“I’d been engaged for four years. That’s a lot of wedding magazines, blogs and bridal dress websites,” said Samantha. Plus there was the fact that I worked in-house at You & Your Wedding for a year before I went freelance for titles like them and Brides magazine. The book was kind of essential to me: I’d been engaged for so long because my fiancé and I were twentysomethings earning twentysomething wages and living at his parents’ house – trying to rent our own place quickly became a bigger priority than a big, expensive wedding, but we still wanted to celebrate our ‘I do’ day with as much as style as our better-off friends. I needed a place to put all my research, and I thought we couldn’t be the only ones struggling this way.’

The High Street Bride’s Guide is available as an ebook for £2.99 and is available to download from all good ebook retailers, visit www.harperimpulseromance.com/books/the-high-street-brides-guide for more details.
