I liked this book but by the end of it I was tired of the sappy stories. It brought back the fond memories I have of shopping for my own wedding dress and the unexpected "magic room" moment I had myself...and I do hope that every bride gets to have that thilling moment.

The author explains early on that he chose brides because they had remarkable stories but it just felt over the top to me by the end.

I wished there were more photos of the dresses too!

I'd say this is a worthwhile read for newly engaged girls and their Moms.… (mer)

This book brought back memories of different groups in high school and why I liked or didn't care for them. However the idea of maintaining close friends is so true and reminded me of how much I value the friends I have and the time spent with them.

Respected the friendship's longevity. Wasn't enamored of the writing.
