Product Overview

It starts with the IGBN (I've Got Big News) phone calls and a mailbox full of Save the Dates. Next comes the meltdown: I always thought I'd be married by now. Why does she have a ring on her finger and I don't? Soon you're buying outrageously expensive china, dancing the electric slide with the groom's dull but available cousin, and envisioning a long and single life for you and a dozen or so cats. But fear not!
Now Erin Torneo and Valerie Cabrera Krause show you how to surf The Bridal Wave on your own terms. This hilarious and practical guide to surviving the wedding blitz reveals the sanity-saving secrets to dealing with all manner of matri-mania, including how to
- manage finances during the costly wedding season
- turn brutal self-examination ("What's wrong with me?") into empowering self-reflection ("Nothing!")
- cope with envy and feelings of competition
- deal with lobridemized friends
- avoid settling for Mr. Wrong just to fit the timeline in your head
- actually enjoy being a bridesmaid, despite the dress
Like the best of friends, Erin and Valerie will help you separate fact from fairy tale-and stay sane, whether you're coupled-up, single and looking, or single and just fine, thank you very much!
