"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
