Overview

Wedding Cake for Breakfast: Essays on the Unforgettable First Year of Marriage by Kim Perel, Wendy Sherman

Every woman plans for the big wedding day. Few plan for the day after. But once the cake has been cut, the dress has been worn and the band has played its last song, a marriage begins.

From the thrill and dread that comes with an unplanned pregnancy to catching up with an ex and having second thoughts, Wedding Cake for Breakfast offers an intimate and often surprising look at that first year of marriage through the eyes and lives of 23 acclaimed women writers. With humor and candor, this collection takes readers behind closed doors for close-ups and personal glimpses into the emotional joys and complications of creating a life together—all the while blending families, furniture, and traditions for the very first time.  

Gathered together in this hilarious and heartwarming anthology some of today’s most renowned female voices, including New York Times bestselling authors Susan Jane Gillman, Joshilyn Jackson, and Jill Kargman, share their most touching and illuminating stories from the first 365 days of matrimony.

I liked the way this book was put together, different stories, different backgrounds and surprisingly most spoke to me even though I couldn't relate directly with each one. On the one hand, I'm glad that they chose women who were already writers to take part in writing their story, but on the other I wish some of the stories had been written by women with no writing background. Also, a few stories from the husband's point of view would have been interesting to read as well.

I really enjoyed this book. I am not married but it was good to read realistic accounts of marriage. Good mix of different types of stories.

This was such a heartfelt book. The reader connects with these women as they tell their stories about the first year of marriage without sensoring their thoughts and feelings. This book is a great reminder that although the first year is the hardest, a couple will learn more about themselves during that time than ever thought possible.
