As the weather gets warm, that means working up a sweat, because we’re entering wedding season! Whether you’re hoofing it all over the place to destination weddings, or panicking because you’ve been appointed the “honor” of being a bridesmaid, or getting hitched yourself while watching everything go wrong, this happy time can get overshadowed by frustration and stress. Instead of obsessing over who catches the bouquet, pick up these books: You can live vicariously through other characters’ nuptial hijinks, laugh at real-life anecdotes, pick up some tips, and even contemplate the meaning of love and marriage itself. Like today’s brides, these books are not all traditional: Some are offbeat, some are choose-your-own-adventure, and in some, the bride doesn’t even know who her groom is!
