Red Dress, Dec 2004, 12.95, 256 pp.
WOW Weddings provides the 100,000 funding for each of two marriage ceremonies if the brides agree to being videotaped, keep journals, and accept the type of ceremony offered. Thinking she will receive a free wedding, co-workers Eloise and Philippa agree to the terms. Eloise will have a modern ceremony while Phyl will be more of a traditional bride.
Rather quickly, the two brides learn that there is no such thing as a free lunch as the cost of freedom is high. Eloise hates her modern wedding which emphasize a yellow wedding dress with bird feathers out of Sesame Street and a weird wedding hall; Phyl detests her traditional setting that reminds her of her grandmother. Both would like to swap roles.
