    more from this reviewer

    So refreshing!

    It's nice to hear about how others navigate waters some of us have never ventured into, or who made the voyage in a completely different time and way than we plan to now. What a lovely book with honest stories about real women and how they managed to marry despite all of those hideous books that tell us, and frankly every other woman who may be involved in helping us, exactly how it "should" all be done.
    Enough of the shoulds, oughts, and downright gotta craziness. A model for how to do things is exactly that: a model. Some basic platform from which to craft one's own masterpiece. The most basic model is that two people commit to a life together, do it in a way that is meaningful to them and their culture (defined however it may be) and likely includes family and friends (again, with definitions that run the gamut).
    This book affirms every decision we could possibly consider with the notion that it's ok to go ahead and do what has meaning to you and your beloved. What a freshing departure from all of the "how to" nonsense out there, including those that make a slight nod to tailoring choices to your own tastes.

    Great book for the not-so traditional bride

    I really loved this book. It's great for those of you who have a wedding in your future, but are not the 'poofy white dress, fairy-tale wedding' types. I identified with a lot of the writers. The only thing I didn't identify with was their ages. I'm in my early 20's and the majority of these essays were written by women who were in their 30's and 40's when they got married. So I kind of wish there was more of a younger bride's perspective. But all in all, it is compiled beautifully and very witty.
