If you have whipped yourself up into a wedding frenzy and need lighthearted release, then pick up a copy of Wedding Babylon. Written by the creators of Air Babylon and Hotel Babylon, this book had me laughing to the very end…I just loved it!
Imogen Edwards-Jones lifts the lid on the worst excesses of the wedding industry. The scams which inflate the prices of everything from flowers to cakes to marquee hire. The wedding disaster stories of bad speeches, bad dresses, and bridezilla demands. The potential for things to go horribly, horribly wrong is never higher than at a wedding.
The book grips you from the start and I found myself amused and fascinated to discover what it’s like to step into the shoes of a high end wedding planner with a list of extravagant events to organise. You will be in shock and stitches at the gross demands of the rich and famous who are meticulous with detail one minute yet forget what they have done and asked for the next!
Wedding Babylon highlights the extravagances of the industry. Did you know…
1) The UK wedding industry is worth £7.5 billion
2) Wedding planners can manage clients with budgets up to £30,000 whilst high end planners have been known to organise five-day celebrations in excess of £2million.
3) One celebrity bride spent £85,000 on trips to New York just to get her dress fitted.
A must read for anyone working in the wonderful wedding industry, a bride who is planning her wedding or even if you are all ready married, get ready to be amused.
Wedding Babylon is priced at £14.99 and available at all good book stores.
