Another Great Endorsement of Sandy’s DIY Wedding Planning Book by an Industry Pro

I’ve always been an admirer of Lisa, famous for her “A Bride on a Budget” blogs. Probably because they go so nicely with my philosophy that it’s possible to have a gorgeous wedding without spending a zillion dollars. And because I was the original DIY bride for my own destination wedding, long before I became a professional wedding planner. So, as you can imagine, I’m mad-flattered that she referenced my new book – How to Plan Your Own Destination Wedding: Do-It-Yourself Tips from an Experienced Professional – in her recent blog about destination weddings. In fact, I see a lot of my recommendations in her 10 Tips for Planning Your Destination Wedding that she wrote after reading my new book!
