Two children look through their grandparents’ wedding album with their grandmother, and discover how she met and fell in love with their grandfather, and what their wedding was like. The story is capped off with a universal wish of grandparents—to be present at the wedding of their grandchildren.
Includes an appendix with facts about wedding traditions around the world: throwing the bouquet in the U.S., pinning money to the bride’s gown in Italy, tying the bride and groom together in Mexico, and painting the bride’s hands with henna in India.
