Publisher Comments:

Once I was a sane, levelheaded professional woman. Then I said “yes.” Now I am the lunatic bride I always made fun of!

What is it about getting married that turns normal people into total freaks?

A savvy, riotously funny novel, Diary of a Mad Bride is for anyone who has ever been a bride, is about to become a bride, yearned to be a bride, or suffered the sheer indignity of appearing in public in the worlds ugliest bridesmaid dress....

My wedding was starting in less than twenty minutes, and I was stuck in a 7-Eleven parking lot with popcorn kernels wedged in my gums and vanilla ice cream melting on my dress. It was a disaster too large to comprehend. After an agonizing year spent planning my wedding, could it really end like this? The voices chronicling a year of wedding hysteria swirled in my head....

— My grandmother upon viewing my engagement ring:

“What do you mean he gave you an emerald! Diamonds are eternal, emeralds say, maybe five years.”

— My future father-in-law on the night of my engagement party:

“To a happy marriage and, if necessary, a painless divorce!”

— My best friend, Anita:

“Oh, screw congratulations. Of course Im happy for you. Stephens a major piece of ass and hes got a sense of humor. Just as long as youre certain this is what you want.”

Would I survive this day after all....?


This debut novel brings together in holy matrimony the perfect partnership of "Sex and the City" and "Animal Husbandry." An utterly hilarious read, the novel chronicles one bride's daily descent into wedding madness.

A fun look at the highs and lows of planning a modern wedding. Written in the style of a diary, this book is a quick read.
I did tend to skip through the pages of to-do lists, but otherwise, it is a fun, humorous read.
