9780071426121: Going Bridal: How to Get Married Without Losing Your Mind

Witty, one-of-a-kind wedding book keeps the bride from going bonkers!

What causes a seemingly normal, well-adjusted woman to become obsessed and emotionally unstable after her boyfriend pops the question?

She's obviously gone bridal! Going Bridal is an actual syndrome, coined by journalist Li Robbins, who in these pages takes a sharp and witty look at what makes a bride go nuts and explains how to prevent emotional overload from spoiling the Big Day.

Filled with helpful, humorous stories from brides who have, regretfully, experienced Going Bridal firsthand as well as those who have narrowly escaped a memorable meltdown, this fun, chatty guide puts it all in perspective. Before it's too late, brides on the brink learn to identify and treat the four major causes of their condition, which include:

  • Family-induced freak-outs
  • Vendor-induced high-decibel venting
  • Fiancé (oh, yeah, whatshisname)-induced fits
  • Friend-induced frenzy

Forget the place settings and the perfect dress; this unique bridal guide focuses on the key ingredient for a successful wedding day--a sane and centered bride!

From the Back Cover:

Why let the stress of wedding planning make you lose your sense of humor . . . or your mind?

When a typically savvy woman starts to feel like wedding planning is making her cuckoo, she’s obviously . . . Going Bridal! In these pages journalist Li Robbins, who coined the term, takes a wise and witty look at the emotional overload that surrounds wedding planning and suggests healthy ways to get from “Yes!” to “I do!”

Filled with helpful, humorous stories from women who have experienced Going Bridal firsthand, this fun, chatty survival guide puts it all in perspective. Brides will learn how to identify triggers, recognize the symptoms, and successfully treat this prewedding syndrome. Grooms will get a bride’s eye view of the pressures facing their betrothed.

Discover strategies other brides have used to keep their cool even when:

  • Your mother seems to think it’s her wedding
  • Your former friend from kindergarten just can’t understand why she’s not a bridesmaid
  • Aunt Esmeralda bluntly announces, “Never thought you’d marry him.”
  • Coworkers offer unsolicited advice on everything from your venue to your vows
  • Your caterer thinks vegetarian means chicken instead of beef
  • Your fiancé’s concept of wedding planning is repeating, “Whatever-you-want-is-fine-as-long-as-it-doesn’t-cost-over-five-hundred-dollars”

This unique bridal guide focuses on the real secret to a successful wedding day--a sane and centered bride. Learn how to manage your Going Bridal tendencies from brides who’ve galloped down the bridal path . . . and lived to tell the tale.
