Budget-Busting Tips for Creating a Dream Wedding without Breaking the Bank

One in three couples will pay the cost of their wedding entirely out of their own pocket – and most will go over budget in doing so. At a time when we're all looking for ways to cut back on the cost of everything from gas to groceries, the average expense of $28,000 to get hitched is probably tough to justify. But before you let the economic crisis ruin your plans, author and professional wedding musician Anne Roos has some budget-busting tips for creating a dream wedding without breaking the bank.

This is an excerpt from a radio interview that was conducted by an Ohio radio station, WFIN am 1330, on October 29th, 2008.

A 5+ Star Rating for Anne Roos' Surround Sound Album

I can't help myself, I just need to share this great review with you.

“Celtic Radio gives Anne Roos’ A Light in the Forest a 5+ star
rating for truly a masterpiece production of sound and music.”
Read the entire review, as it appears on the

“Anne Roos' CD – A Light in the Forest - is a masterpiece of
music and sounds that will gently take you away to a world of
ancient melodies, majestic forests, fairies, castles and witches.
This musical creation includes Anne on the Celtic Harp along with
musicians playing flutes, recorders, whistles, percussions,
viola, guitars and fiddles. Beautifully organized and arranged,
A Light in the Forest is a splendid way to spend an autumn
evening listening to the sounds of the season.

The CD comes in a gorgeous hardcover mini-book with 32 pages of
full color pictures and commentary as well as historical
background on each song. This production is very unique and top
quality with the CD produced in super audio. It will definitely
have a special place in your Celtic music collection. And if you
love A Light in the Forest, we are certain you will love Anne's
other 2 similar productions; Haste to the Wedding and Mermaids &
Mariners - also in the same format with hardcover mini-book

Celtic Radio gives Anne Roos' A Light in the Forest a 5+ star
rating for truly a masterpiece production of sound and music.
The included CD mini-book is certainly the best and most unique
production that we have seen in our 7 years of operation and
makes this a very compelling package to add to your Celtic music
CD collection or as a gift to that someone special!”

I find your playing absolutely excellent and I am looking forward to buying your cds in the near future. I also appreciate very much the Celtic Club membership and the opportunity to download new tunes every once in a while. Very fine, too, that you are supplying interesting background information as well.
