Picture your dream wedding. You've got your Vera Wang dress, the church is elegant, the organ music is tasteful. Or maybe you're on some beach in the Caribbean, barefoot, with wildflowers in your hair. Or else you're in a distinguished synagogue, the rich comforts of tradition resounding in the brilliant crunch of glass beneath your feet.

Now wake up. None of that has anything to do your wedding. My First Wedding shows you in hilarious detail what planning a wedding is actually about, including:

  • Fighting with your parents over the budget

  • Fighting with your parents over the guest list

  • Finding the perfect pre-wedding crash diet

  • Picking out hideously ugly bridesmaids' dresses

  • Establishing a theme; fighting over the theme; changing the theme

  • Fighting with your fiance over the honeymoon destination

    From the brilliant minds who brought you "Baby's First Tattoo," which "USA Today" describes as "viciously funny," this book isn't just good fun, it is also a good investment. Armed with it you won't make the same mistakes on your second wedding that you made on "My First Wedding."
