Dear Librarians,

Nowadays, weddings are big business, and for more than ten years I played a role as executive editor at Conde Nast's Modern Bride and Elegant Bride, tastemakers and trendsetters for the industry. I soaked up bridal fashion, stationery, receptions, food, flowers, favors and more! The fascinating thing is the way in which all the exquisite elements—the tulle, the organza, the calla lilies, the cake—contrast with the nitty-gritty reality of the women who work in the offices. THE WEDDING WRITER focuses on the personal and professional lives of four talented, striving women and one glossy wedding magazine where bridal dreams are spun. The novel gives an insider's peek into a competitive, feminine world where glamour meets grind—and the head that wears the editor's tiara never dares rest easily!

On my website,, I will blog about ongoing events in the bridal industry: fashion, wedding cakes, stationery and the latest trends. I also want to encourage brides to bring me all wedding-related questions, from etiquette and budget to the latest and greatest in guest books and signature drinks (and everything in between!)

"In this Devil Wears Prada-like send-up of the bridal magazine industry, a former executive editor of Modern Bride and Elegant Bride takes readers behind the scenes of the fictional Your Wedding. The workplace drama is enhanced with fantastic fashion, tawdry affairs, secrets, and revelations. Schneider certainly writes from experience, and readers will be interested in what's behind all those frothy covers on the newsstand."—Booklist
