Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you want to smile, cry, laugh, grieve, or just plain nod knowingly in the face of newlywedded supposed-to-be’s, this book is your friend.”  
(Laura Munson, author of This Is Not the Story You Think It Is)

“These insightful essays offer so much more than one might expect from a collection about the first year of marriage. When you treat yourself to Wedding Cake for Breakfast, you will come away entertained, encouraged, and enlightened, as if you’d just spent a weekend in the company of dear friends.”  
(Therese Fowler, author of Souvenir and Exposure)

Wedding Cake for Breakfast is a pure delight! What a wonderful reminder that in the end we are all neurotic, scared, and somewhat delirious as we navigate that often wacky but usually happy first year of marriage.”  
(Jessica Anya Blau, author of Drinking Closer to Home)

“I loved Wedding Cake so much, I just couldn’t put it down! I highly recommend this delightful and delightfully frank look at marriage in its blush of infancy (aka before the dysfunction kicks in). Men: if you want to understand your bride, read this book. It pulls the curtain back to reveal the fertile imagination lurking in the female mind.”  
(Jenny Gardiner, author of Slim to None)

Wedding Cake for Breakfast is a perfectly rendered collection of wise and funny memories about the exquisitely complex first year of marriage. Simmering with love and powered by talented writers who paint hope and heart into every story, this book should be required reading for anyone who has or is about to tie the knot.”  
(Ann Wertz Garvin, author of On Maggie���s Watch)

I usually put a book in my cart to think about it, and then forget about it.

This book was recommended to me by a co-worker who had also read it right after being married.

The essays range from laugh-out-loud funny to poignant and thought-provoking.

I'm not even married (even though I'd like to be) but I still loved this book! Reading about each couple's journey as they experience their first year as husband and wife gave me faith and excitement for what lies ahead. This book had me laughing, crying and smiling. A must read for any woman of any age to show us that fairytales do come true!

For anyone who has navigated that tricky first twelve months of marriage, this is a MUST read. The contributing authors are diverse, their stories varied, and their individual takes on marriage are easy to relate to. The essays range from laugh-out-loud funny to poignant and thought-provoking. Sophie Littlefield's wistful remembrances are every bit as engaging as Jenna McCarthy's humorous rant. There is truly something for everyone, and each story captivates. I could not put this book down until I reached the last page. And for those women who are considering marriage or on the brink of making a lifelong commitment--put down your bridal magazines and read Wedding Cake for Breakfast. There is no better preparation for saying "I do."

I read a review online, checked Amazon for further info about the book to see if I might like to read it - someday. I usually put a book in my cart to think about it, and then forget about it. I ordered the Kindle version, started reading it after dinner, by 11:30 PM I ordered Kindle copies for our daughter and a one year wed granddaughter. I'm fifty plus years past that first year, and ten years widowed, and I laughed at some of the stories but soon found what could have been my stories in these essays. I said the same things, I did that too, but we survived, It would be a great gift for any woman who wants to be or is or has been married.

This book was recommended to me by a co-worker who had also read it right after being married. You find yourself really connecting with those who wrote the essays. You find yourself comparing your relationship to those couples in the essays and I have noted several tips or words of advice to use as I navigate not only through my first year of marriage but really for the remainder of our lives together.

Great read!

I heard about this book on NPR and had to get a copy. I wish I knew about it when I first got married, but it's only been a couple of years so we're still figuring things out. Glad I'm not alone trying to understand this thing called marriage.
