Disappointing. How can you write a book about modern weddings and Bridezillas, and end up with something so dry? She did a very entertaining stint on Talk of the Nation, but the book read like an economic forecast.
I learned to steer clear of wedding magazines. And I am glad I am part of a faith community. I already was glad of course, but it is great to be rooted in one and know why I am marrying. The author is a New Yorker writer and I bet this is the article she wrote http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2003/04/21/youre-getting-married. that she then expanded for the book. Years ago there was an article in Yale student publication by a woman who had interned one summer at a bridal magazine. I used to send it to friends who were newly engaged, but as I passed out of the wedding years I have lost track of it.
