Product Description

From the Back Cover

Why let the stress of wedding planning make you lose your sense of humor . . . or your mind?

When a typically savvy woman starts to feel like wedding planning is making her cuckoo, she’s obviously . . . Going Bridal! In these pages journalist Li Robbins, who coined the term, takes a wise and witty look at the emotional overload that surrounds wedding planning and suggests healthy ways to get from “Yes!” to “I do!”

Filled with helpful, humorous stories from women who have experienced Going Bridal firsthand, this fun, chatty survival guide puts it all in perspective. Brides will learn how to identify triggers, recognize the symptoms, and successfully treat this prewedding syndrome. Grooms will get a bride’s eye view of the pressures facing their betrothed.

Discover strategies other brides have used to keep their cool even when:

  • Your mother seems to think it’s her wedding
  • Your former friend from kindergarten just can’t understand why she’s not a bridesmaid
  • Aunt Esmeralda bluntly announces, “Never thought you’d marry him.”
  • Coworkers offer unsolicited advice on everything from your venue to your vows
  • Your caterer thinks vegetarian means chicken instead of beef
  • Your fiancé’s concept of wedding planning is repeating, “Whatever-you-want-is-fine-as-long-as-it-doesn’t-cost-over-five-hundred-dollars”

This unique bridal guide focuses on the real secret to a successful wedding day--a sane and centered bride. Learn how to manage your Going Bridal tendencies from brides who’ve galloped down the bridal path . . . and lived to tell the tale.

Format: Paperback
OK, I'll be honest here - I'm a man and so perhaps completely unqualified to comment on this book. But my fiancée agrees with me that The Rules are a load of rubbish, so I feel emboldened.... I'm afraid that I can't take any book seriously that is written entirely in Cosmo-style gush (e.g. p1: 'I have three, count 'em, three friends getting married this year'). Sure, write a little magazine article like this, but a whole book? My skin started crawling after a few paragraphs. I'd have given it one star but I feel I should be open-minded enough to allow that Cosmo might have SOME value hidden to my masculine brain.

This book is a terrific wedding book for brides and their friends who've encountered the "tentacles of the wedding industry" and are resisting its grip. Also brides who have any "tensions" with friends or family. I found it very funny, and very helpful. I'm in the midst of planning my wedding and some of the scenarios were so familiar -- it was reassuring in that "you're not alone way." (Plus stories about things I'm happy not to be going through!) Going Bridal has practical tips about very emotional situations, and is a truly fabulous, fun read.

Loved this book -- it's hilarious, and helpful. Much more "real" than most wedding books. And great to read something that focuses on the emotional side of wedding planning. Each chapter opens with a short, funny fictional story of one bride who doesn't want to get caught up in wedding madness, and then moves on to real life examples of some of the potential landmines -- family, friends, the vendors, even old "whatsisname." Very entertaining, great way to take your mind off wedding stress. I'd give it to any friend planning to get married.

Finally a bridal book that isn't full of "to-do" lists and etiquette rules! This is a bible for the indie hipster, full of humorous stories and personal experiences that guide, not instruct, the bride-to-be in planning her perfect day. Now all may read first hand how to avoid the pitfalls of family pressures and friends' expectations gracefully and with ease. Buy this book for all your girlfriends on their way to being hitched, you won't regret it, and they won't go bridal!

Stumbled on this book and found it so different from the other wedding books I've read -- in a good way. Read the other reviews and think Mr. Grumpy is just that. My fiance read parts of it and laughed out loud, and believe me, he's not usually into chick lit type stuff. It's pretty true to life and very entertaining. Only criticism is it isn't obvious right away that the beginning of chapters are fictional, but ended up liking those parts as much as the real life stories.
