Americans still marry in great numbers, with over two million nuptials occurring every year. With the average U.S. wedding costing between $20,000 and $30,000, these celebrations represent a great financial and emotional investment not only for the engaged couple but for their loved ones as well. Besides the financial obstacles, weddings present social challenges. Couples bringing together diverse family factions or hoping to reintroduce ethnic traditions will need wedding and etiquette advice. This article focuses on a selection of new and recent wedding titles, with a particular eye toward budget-conscious couples and do-it-yourselfers creating their own magic and surprises in this tough economy.
