Turn Wedding Stress Into Bridal Bliss
Review by Judith Orloff, M.D.
In Wedding Goddess: A Divine Guide to Transforming Wedding Stress into Wedding Bliss (Perigee Books, May 2005), author Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway shows brides how to avoid taking the stress express to the altar and explores the wedding experience with a unique eye toward restoring the sacred.
She offers wise and easy to follow advice on how to deal with family, friends, vendors and the man you will marry; and she coaches brides on how to get through each part of the experience with preparation, poise and a good sense of humor.
The book is also rich with mediations, exercises, rituals, vows, prayers and special blessings.
Having married hundreds of couples in unique interfaith and creative non-denominational wedding ceremonies she generously shares her experiences and ideas, as well as comments from many of the brides she has married and counseled. These little snippets offer great inspiration and tips on how to have a powerful and graceful wedding experience.
Many books tell how to plan a wedding. This one tells how to live your wedding experience and guides you on how to include the sacred, along with the practical, every step of the journey to the altar.
This magnificent book is a blessing to any bride. I highly recommend Wedding Goddess to every woman who wants to cross the threshold in the most inspired way.
