Like a beautiful butterfly emerging from a homely cocoon, the moment a person gets engaged they blossom from a run-of-the-mill human into a bride-to-be. A bride is a true dictator, her wedding her totalitarian state. And that is exactly as it should be. 

In this bridal gag gift, Laura Willcox writes in the voice of an overbearing, outrageous wedding planner covering all aspects of a weddingfrom maximizing jealousy when you announce your engagement on social media, to establishing yourself as the alpha over your bridesmaids, to preventing your groom from ruining your wedding by having any opinions at all, and so much more. 

Accompanied by Jason O’Malley’s hilarious illustrations, Willcox offers tongue-in-cheek advice for every wedding-planning moment, whether it’s dreaming up the perfect wedding-weekend hashtag, dealing with a focus-stealing flower girl, or figuring out how to distance yourself from the poor, unfortunate souls who didn’t make the cut for your guest list.
