Publisher Comments:

While family and future in-laws squabble over the menu and the table decorations, brides are supposed to sit, smile, and bask in the prospect of their happiness, even though that prospect is guaranteed to include the post-wedding depression that hits some 90 percent of women during their first year of marriage. This is a must-have book for any woman who has found the partner she wants to be with for the rest of her life and has made up her mind to celebrate that commitment.

Bridal counselor Sheryl Paul interviewed a diverse group of women who share their true feelings about the many concerns that can make an engagement a roller coaster of emotional ups and downs. Along with practical advice and support, you will find welcome acknowledgement of shared doubts and fears that so often run amok as wedding bells take their toll.

Synopsis:

Led by a counselor, brides share their feelings about such issues as being given away, wearing a veil, changing their name, and closing the hotel room door only to find themselves suddenly--married. The author unravels the psychology behind common difficulties and offers practical advice for handling the fears and doubts that so often run amok as wedding bells toll.

Synopsis:

Describes how women view the transitional period when their single life comes to an end, they plan and prepare for their weddings, and they adjust to their new lives as married women, and suggests ways to deal with common situations.

Though I have to admit all the mythology drives me nuts, I really recommend this book to anybody, not just women. It saved my sanity during the leadup/wedding/aftermath. She does a great job explaining why the emotions for the engaged couple (and also for their families and loved ones) are so tempestuous and even scary. I felt I got a better understanding of why it's so difficult to plan a wedding (after all, it's just a party, right?) and it helped me healthily frame the wacko family response to my getting married. Best of all, when I found myself weeping like a madwoman over trifles, I understood why and I could forgive myself and not see it as a reason to call the whole thing off!
