A collection of twenty-six true stories from well-known writers and fresh new literary voices, My Wedding Dress explores the wedding outfit as a touchstone garment in women’s lives. These are intimate stories about relationships; not just those between men and women, but between women and their mothers, friends and children.

Some of the tales are humorous - such as the bride whose skin is dyed fuchsia on her wedding night; the woman whose shopping-savvy aunt takes her to New York’s garment district; some are romantic - such as the woman who puts on her dress eight years after her wedding only to be caught by her husband when he comes home early from work; and the quickie immigration wedding that turned into the real thing. Some are devastating - such as the bride who loses her mother to illness only days before her wedding; and the woman whose mother recounts the story of being kidnapped by her future husband. And some are revealing - such as the woman who first wears a wedding dress for her initiation ceremony into a convent, and her second to marry her beloved; the dress that waited patiently in a shop window and then hidden in a box on a closet shelf; the same-sex wedding at age eighty; and the Goodwill wedding dress that gets used for everything but a wedding. All are honest, personal and profoundly moving.

The emotions invested in the dresses and wedding days - confidence, optimism, hesitation, fear, fury, and hope - will resonate with readers. Peppered with charming photos, My Wedding Dress is sure to appeal to women of all ages and become a beloved new classic.

In the tradition of DroppedThreads, My Wedding Dress tells of life lessons and cherished memories - using the wedding dress as a departure point.
