I am a sucker for a good wedding story! This summer we have attended several weddings and they have made me smile and reminisce about my own wedding that was six years ago. I am quite the romantic and get a thrill out of hearing about other people's love stories.
This Chicken Soup for the Soul book was an easy read for me. Each short story was fun, romantic, or even humorous as I had a glimpse into the most special time in someone's life. I have to admit that some of the stories I liked the best were where things didn't go quite as planned. No wedding is perfect... mine wasn't as the DJ played the wrong father-daughter dance song. Something so trivial seemed like such a huge deal that day! I still danced with my dad, but it wasn't to the words I had imagined... so the day might as well have been completely ruined! Ahh, the emotions of a bride.
This is a great book for a new bride-to-be... or even an old softy like me!
