Excerpt from the Introduction:
" Wedding Dress Woes"
from previous page.
Ask any woman if she is happy with her body and she will
undoubtedly say "No," then proceed to list the usual figure
flaws. But for a bride-to-be, figure flaws seem to become
a matter of life or death. No one wants to walk down the

By now you've probably figured out that the perfect wedding
takes lots of time and heaps of planning. If so, you're
making daily "to-do" lists and checking them twice. Fitting
into the perfect gown takes the same strategy.

local newspaper--when you celebrate wedding milestones...such
as your 50th anniversary!).
