The book shows brides from all around the world and the different traditions for each culture. The book discusses differences in things like the clothes worn, location, food served, gifts presented, and other unknown customs. The book is also filled with fun facts. The bad part about this book is that it is a little out dated. ( )

Here Come the Brides is a really cute book but it is pretty dated. Teachers could probably use it to show how traditions change over time or for students particularly interested in cultural practices. Although it is filled with many facts about different brides from around the world the book does not go into why these traditions exist. ( )
