Overview

Witty, one-of-a-kind wedding book keeps the bride from going bonkers!

What causes a seemingly normal, well-adjusted woman to become obsessed and emotionally unstable after her boyfriend pops the question?

She's obviously gone bridal! Going Bridal is an actual syndrome, coined by journalist Li Robbins, who in these pages takes a sharp and witty look at what makes a bride go nuts and explains how to prevent emotional overload from spoiling the Big Day.

Filled with helpful, humorous stories from brides who have, regretfully, experienced Going Bridal firsthand as well as those who have narrowly escaped a memorable meltdown, this fun, chatty guide puts it all in perspective. Before it's too late, brides on the brink learn to identify and treat the four major causes of their condition, which include:

  • Family-induced freak-outs
  • Vendor-induced high-decibel venting
  • Fiancé (oh, yeah, whatshisname)-induced fits
  • Friend-induced frenzy

Forget the place settings and the perfect dress; this unique bridal guide focuses on the key ingredient for a successful wedding day—a sane and centered bride!

Finally, a wedding book that's smart, funny, and isn't about a To Do list. I loved this book because it talks about the emotional stress and general insanity that can go on when you're planning a wedding. There is plenty of practical advice from women who have gotten married, and every page there's something that made me laugh out loud. I'm a few months away from my wedding and this book helped get things in perspective -- actually helped stop me from 'going bridal!' A great alternative wedding book.
