Overview

Planning a two-bride wedding can mean twice the beauty and twice the stress, and with a shortage of inspiration and guidance for the modern lesbian bride, this is the book for the next generation of women planning a same-sex wedding. 2Brides 2Be is a wedding guide for the bride who exudes youth and style no matter what her age, who is inspired by innovation, and who wants to marry the woman of her dreams and do it her way. She is a visionary who is up to the task of blending tradition and rebellion, but she is looking for some practical wedding planning advice. She will find it here.

She has advice on everything from the logistics of walking down the aisle to wording the invites, and she’s not afraid to throw all the rules out the window. With input from wedding industry professionals, 2Brides 2Be will enlighten brides on booking vendors, wrangling family and pulling off the wedding of her dreams.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"2Brides 2Be: A Same-Sex Guide for the Modern Bride is a one-of-a-kind guide for lesbian couples, and not just on planning the actual event. Advice on the entire wedding experience is covered, answering questions and sparking excitement."
Foreword

"A lesbian wedding how-to guide that is as fresh as it is funny and insightful.

Not only is this the only book on the market of it’s kind, it's a must-read for any lesbian (or forward thinking bride-to-be) planning her wedding. Filled with first-hand tips and authentic experiences, Laura Leigh Abbey takes the reader step by step through the frought-filled process of planning a wedding with a gentle hand, while resetting gender stereotypes at the same time. A must-read for any bride, in my opinion, lesbian or otherwise."

In response to the dearth of guides on same-sex weddings, Abby (2Brides2Be.com) draws from her own experience and that of wedding planners to create a handbook to help women achieve the wedding of their dreams. She covers basics such as putting together a guest list, inviting exes, registering, and establishing a budget, but also takes on issues specific to same-sex couples, including coming out to announce the relationship and deciding who walks first down the aisle. Advice on changing one's name and wording the ceremony pronouncement are other useful additions. Verdict An accomplished book about the meaning of marriage for same-sex couples and how to represent that in the wedding.
