K. Hamilton

As a soon to be mid-life groom, I appreciate the punchy, honest comments that give me a better understanding of what both my wife-to-be and I have to look forward to until the last veil falls.

K. HamiltonAmazon Review


I loved this book! Reading it felt like I was having a live conversation with a very wise mid-life bride. More importantly, its suggestions were practical, ideas plentiful and it provided wedding details that I had totally forgotten about. The quotations were brilliant, the wit and writing style entertaining, yet to the point. A true gift of wisdom for me, an older second time bride.
