Overview
An engaging and disarmingly honest ("People)" examination of the search for love and the meaning of marriage in a time of anxiety, independence, and indecision.
Weddings. They re fun, festive, and joyful, and at a time when people marry later in life and sometimes not at all they offer endless opportunities to reexamine love and what we want for ourselves, regardless of whether or not our aim is a walk down the aisle. In"Save the Date," Jen Doll charts the course of her own perennial wedding guesthood, from the ceremony of distant family members when she was eight to the recent nuptials of a new boyfriend s friends.
There s the first trip home for a childhood pal s big day, in which she learns that her first love has eloped to Hawaii.There s the destination wedding attended with little baggage beyond a suitcase of strappy sandals and summery party dresses.Regrettably, there is a series of celebrations that mean the end to a valued friendship. There s also the wedding that offers all the promise of new love.
Wedding experiences come in as varied an assortment as the gowns at any bridal shop, and Doll turns a keen eye to each, delivering a heartfelt exploration of contemporary relationships. Funny, honest, and affecting, "Save the Date"is a fresh and spirited look at the many ways in which we connect to one another."
