She just got married for the second time and there are all kinds of essays in the book that relate to the new bride, the older bride and even the second time around. I think my favorite section was the Marital Mishaps. We had a few mishaps at our wedding, including the wind blowing all the favors off the tables!101 Stories of Love, Laughter and FamilyThe wedding day, and each day leading up to it, is a special and exciting time.
