I picked this up at the bookstore the other night. Fun read by Emily Elizabeth Anderson. Subtitle of the book is “Simple tips to plan an environmentally friendly, socially resonsible, affordable and stylish celebration.” Whew!! that about covers all the bases!! I like the book because it is not over-the-top crazy like wear a wedding dress made from burlap. Yet, it clearly puts out some great alternatives to buying a brand new “blood diamond” and finding a different way to celebrate with style. I also like her often repeated message regarding have an elegant affair with doing less. Emily also blogs over at
