The months leading up to a wedding are not only exhilarating, they're often anxiety-inducing. It's a shame when the logistics take precedence over all else, so that the bride is often the least likely to enjoy the occasion. This book aims to counter that trend by offering numerous suggestions for achieving balance before, during, and after the big day. While the first part of the book covers health issues and birth control options, the rest of the book tackles issues rarely touched on in wedding planning tomes: changing identity, extended family feuds, how to integrate your work and your friends into your new married life, stepparenting, balancing two religions under one roof, and making your marriage stronger. Interspersed throughout are "Wedding Wisdom" quotes from brides. Could there be a better bridal shower gift?
