The editor of this book, Colleen Curan, was engaged for three years before she was married. She was a little overcome by everything involved in planning a wedding. She was interested in finding out how women view weddings today. This book is a result of her findings.
This book includes 27 essays written by writers on all aspects involved in planning a wedding. The sections covered by the essays are, taking the vow, the dress, plans and preparations, etiquette and registry, weddings and the single girl, family and budget, getting hitched and for better or for worse.
This book is an entertaining read for anyone whether they are married or still single. It shows the reader all the stress and emotions that a bride-to-be goes through as she is planning her wedding. The reader will find the essays very funny at times and I'm sure they will bring back a few memories for some of the women who are now married and have gone through all the wedding planning stress. There are also a few more serious type essays such as the one written by Jennifer Armstrong that tells how she called off her wedding. This is a good read and one that I highly recommend.
