Blurbs from early readers:
"As someone who tried on a hundred wedding dresses, this gorgeously illustrated story really resonated with me. I loved the little slice of life story-telling, and would definitely recommend it to anyone who’s bridging any life milestone!" - I.Y.
"As someone who also never dreamed of wearing a wedding dress, I found this zine—with its whimsical fashion illustrations—to be deeply relatable, poignant, and funny. So many wedding-related stories leave out the more practical aspects of the planning process, but Carolyn is refreshingly honest about her own budget, experience, and existential musings. If you're someone who's skeptical of the wedding industrial complex, this one's for you!" - N.Z.
"Carolyn distills the complex emotions—hope, excitement, uncertainty—in finding a wedding dress, in what it symbolizes, with heartfelt storytelling and illustrations. A moving, tender zine that will capture your heart!" - K.M.
