Bridesmaid's Survival Guide: A Hilarious Handbook to Womanhood's Most Dubious Distinction by Mary Kay McDermott
Nearly ever woman has had to stuff herself into a hideous mint green dress and take the devastating walk down the aisle, trailing behind her friend--the Bride--only to see her friends and loved ones ride off into the sunset into happily-ever-after. Finally, help is at hand from illustrator and author Mary Kay McDermott--a woman who has herself been a bridesmaid a total of nine times.
Raucous and wickedly clever, The Bridesmaid's Survival Guide is certain to become the must gift for bridesmaids from brides--or even other bridesmaids. Chock-full of home-spun four-color cartoons and incisive girlfriend humor, this handbook is sure to become a classic. Without laughter, how else will a prospective bridesmaid endure the arduous trip down the aisle, attending to her stressed-out friend and being left behind in a dress almost as frightful as the Visa bill it will show up on?
Nine times a bridesmaid, Mary Kay McDermott is a cartoonist and writer. She has been an account executive and writer for Whitehead Associated Public Relations in New York and has also served as a contributing writer for ArtNews, an international trade magazine.
