"The number one issue at the top of every couple's mind is the cost of the wedding. The number one issue on a celebrants mind is officiating that wedding in the most professional way possible," said Celeste. "With so many bridal magazines and other publications in the market depicting gorgeous photos and stunning locations, my clients were crying out for a simple, back-to-basics guide which they could use to begin their planning -- with a realistic budget in place. "In 2004 the average wedding cost $34,000. By 2020, this figure will be about $90,000 plus, so it really is essential that we don't lose sight of why a couple is getting married in the first place. Celeste has help couples save money and work out exactly where their wedding budget dollars are best spent, as well as providing a wonderful resource guide for the many new celebrants now working in this field. As one new Celebrant wrote to Celeste... "I received your book today and have read it from cover to cover. This book is a God-send. I feel I am riding on your wealth of experience but more so there are 'little things' in your book which I would never have even thought about as a newly qualified celebrant. It should be compulsory reading for all us 'newbies'. Thanks again." Di Imarisio - Townsville "I am always happy to help any new celebrant provide the best service to thier client. This is important. But more important is helping a couple plan their wedding day -- from the moment the groom pops the question -- and, yes, when following the tips in this book, I guarantee a bridezilla-free wedding day!"
