A wedding book flowchart. <3

“Contemporary heroines are not necessarily brides; they are also the friends, colleagues, classmates of brides, and their stories do not want for depth just ­because they’re not the ones wearing white.”

Graduates in Wonderland, Jessica Pan and Rachel Kapelke-Dale (by Penguin Books USA)

We’re hosting Jessica and Rachel with Jen Doll (Save the Date) for Twentysomething Tales on May 21!

“Upon reading the stories of other brides and grooms and friendships and relationships, I thought, this is something that applies to all of us; we have all been here in our own ways. We have all gone to weddings. We have all had feelings. We have not always talked about it.”
