Happy Is the Bride the Sun Shines On

The traditional folkish saying that our business name is based on is also the title of a book written by Leslie Jones and published by McGraw-Hill. You can see more information about this book at their web site, Happy Is the Bride the Sun Shines On.

The book is a great coffee table addition chock full of folklore surrounding weddings and bridal traditions. Here is a snippet of the description from their site.

Far beyond the well tread "something borrowed, something blue" and typical bridal bouquet toss, there are hundreds of lesser known but fascinating customs and beliefs that play a special role in weddings worldwide. Happy Is the Bride the Sun Shines On is a charming collection of unique nuptial traditions and superstitions.

From the excerpt available on, it seems to be equal parts history, folklore and anecdotes. I very much want to carry this book in our store, not only because the name matches our domain, but because it's exactly the right fit for what we want to sell.

I'm putting it on my to do list. But until I find a supplier, be sure to get the best price from one of the links above. You can also find the book on GoogleGoogle Book Search.
