Overview

Here at last is a wedding book that reflects the realities of getting married: the excitement and anticipation, yes, but also the absurd, the terrifying, and the hilarious aspects of the modern wedding. These writers cut through convention to find meaning in the rituals, to affirm the basic power of this ancient ceremony: the intention to cross a threshold into a new life. It is at that threshold, caught between the profoundly private nature of a vow and the intensely public celebration that surrounds it, that the contributors to this anthology explore the meaning and importance of marriage.

For every bride-- or groom-to-be, for newlyweds, for lovers at any stage of life, and for lovers of good literature, these poems and stories provide a moving, funny, joyous look at how and why we marry, traveling toward a more perfect union.
