Editorial Reviews

Review

"...has become surprisingly successful in the States because, perhaps because it is the first to tackle the topic..." (The Glasgow Herald, 22 December 2003)

Review

"Tying the knot is great--when it's right. For to-be-weds everywhere who may not be sure their One is THE One or for those on the receiving end of a broken engagement, the personal stories in this book are a balm for understanding how and why these things happen and for coping with the aftermath and moving on." - Carley Roney, Editor-in-Chief and Co-Founder, TheKnot.com

"Safier's timely and important book shows why it's better to break off an engagement than go through with a marriage that isn't meant to be. The wise words of these 'almost brides' will be helpful to others on the verge of breaking it off, or troubled by the aftermath of a broken engagement." - Pamela Paul, author of The Starter Marriage and the Future of Matrimony.

"It's about time someone tackled this often-secret subject. 'There Goes the Bride' is long overdue."- Lori Leibovich, Editor and Founder, Indiebride.com

"Amid all the happy talk about encouraging marriage, we need to remember that what we really want is better, more stable, grown-up marriages, and that people need to think critically about whether they are right for each other, and indeed whether they are ready for marriage to anybody."- John Crouch, Executive Director, Americans for Divorce Reform

This book is so comforting for brides who have either called off their wedding or thinking about it. I am a bride who has called off her wedding and this book has helped me through a lot of hard times, just reading that others have gone through the same thing that you are going through just makes you feel a lot better.

I cancelled my wedding 2 months ago and received this book the day before my planned wedding date. I read many of the other books that were out there (trying to find answers) and none reinforced so many of my feelings. My fiance and I were not right for each other and we were rushing in marriage. I am so happy to be free from that relationship and this book is a gem for women strugling to understand their 'cold feet' and their recurring doubts about marrying their fiances. I highly recommend it and hope all women who have doubts read this and find strength in the accounts of other women who have been there.

Format: Paperback
This book is a long-needed resource for would-be and not-sure brides! Ms. Safier reinforces what many women know deep down: That if you have doubts, it's time to walk out before you walk down the aisle. An engagement is easier to get out of than a divorce, and sometimes those uneasy feelings are the nagging of common sense and responsiblity, not "cold feet." She also tells you how to heal afterwards, and how to deal with the well-intentioned but thoughless/spiteful/nosy questions and remarks that you'll inevitably get from acquaintances.

Ladies, read this book before you say "I do" and hold your heads high and know that you ARE doing the mature thing if you decide it's time to say, "I don't."

For any would-be-bride, this book is a must. Humurous at times, tearful at others, this book helps remind us that calling off the wedding is not the end of the world. A wonderful combination of advice with antecdotal stories from other would-be brides. After cancelling my own wedding 12 days before the event, I was searching high and low for something to help me through the grieving process. The book was IT! A wonderful find.

I can't say enough good things about this book. I found it about 2 weeks after my wedding was called off and a year later, I still get something out of it. If you just called off your wedding, or are thinking about it, this book will let you know that you are not alone in the myriad of emotions. I have recommended this to so many people, even those who went through the end of a serious relationship, not necessarily an engagement. It will sit next to your bed and you will pick it up at 4 in the morning for comfort.

Format: Paperback
When my engagement was suddenly called off, I felt like my world had ended. I felt like there was no one in the world who could possibly understand what I was going through - all the emotions and the heartache and the loss of my future with the man that I loved more than anything. I found Rachel's book while browsing in a bookstore and it has been a godsend. You start to realize that you are not alone and it allows you to understand what has happened to you. I could relate to many of the women in the book. It also led me to the "There Goes the Bride" website, where I've met and made friends with women who are going through the same difficult period. I can't say enough how much this book and the website have helped me.

There Goes the Bride is a great book for anyone having relationship issues. Whether or not you have cold feet or something more serious, this book is for you. The stories from the Almost Brides are great and really give the feeling that broken engagements and relationship troubles aren't a rare phenomenon.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. It's an easy read that's full of information, humor, and resources.
