This was a decent little book. There were a few spots that had me laughing out loud (like the woman who didn't want to sit near a little boy in a tuxedo because she didn't want a homunculus sitting in her lap) and many, many more that had me smiling.

While this book highlighted the fact that North Carolina (the only place I've lived in The South) is much, much different from the Delta, it did explain a couple of things I considered odd at a couple of the weddings I'd attended there. And I'm notorious for leaving early when I'm a wedding guest, which, according to this book, makes me quite rude. I did, however, send out my thank-you cards within just a few months of my own wedding, so at least I got the most important wedding-related thing right.

I do regret having to return the book to the library before I had a chance to try some of the recipes on my family. ( )

This is an entertaining read even if, like myself, you aren't getting married or attending a wedding in the near future. The recipes sound delicious, and I can't wait to try some of them. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Even if you've never attended a wedding in the South, you'll find laughter in the pages of this slice of Southern life and love, complete with recipes, advice, and a huge dose of that famous charm. "In the Mississippi Delta, funerals bring out the best in people, while weddings, which are supposed to be happy occasions, bring out the worst," say authors Metcalfe and Hays. For anyone planning, participating in, or attending a wedding (Southern or not), this book will amuse, entertain, and provide advice.--From publisher description.… (more)
