Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride by Lucy Knisley

In 2010, Lucy and her long-term boyfriend John broke up. Three long, lonely years later, John returned to New York, walked into Lucy's apartment, and proposed.

This is not that story. It is the story of what came after: The Wedding.

DIY maven Lucy Knisley was fascinated by American wedding culture . . . but also sort of horrified by it. So she set out to plan and execute the adorable DIY wedding to end all adorable DIY weddings. And she succeeded. This graphic novel, Something New--clocking in at almost 300 pages of humor, despair, and eternal love--is the story of how Lucy built a barn, invented a whole new kind of photo booth, and managed to turn an outdoor wedding on a rainy day into a joyous (though muddy) triumph.

Sweet, funny, and very, very real, SOMETHING NEW is exactly the book I needed to keep me sane during my own wedding planning process. I'm not the biggest graphic novel fan in the world, but I found Lucy Knisley's artistic style accessible and adorable by turns, and I loved the additions of actual photos in among the cartoons. Highly recommended for wedding enthusiasts, romance lovers, and anyone drowning in wedding planning who desperately needs a life raft, or at least a little guidance.
