Author seeks subjects for new wedding book

February 21, 2008
Williamsport Sun-Gazette
Some brides met their soul-mates at a poetry reading; others while sky diving. Some brides love candles and lace; others prefer coconuts and leis. Some get blank checks from their parents; others have more modest budgets. How can you create a wedding that represents you? Ask women who have already done it.

“My Wedding, My Way” will provide the collective wisdom of more than a dozen women who share creative ideas and practical advice for planning the perfect personalized wedding. Based on a series of interviews, the book will outline tips on every stage of the wedding process, from initial planning to wedding day advice, all in a conversational tone.

After all, sometimes the best advice comes from chatting with a group of friends over coffee.

Author Alyce Wilson is in the research stage of the book, with a projected publishing date of this summer.

Brides will discuss how they put their own twist on the ceremony and reception space, bridal party attire, an officiant, flowers, menu, cake, vows and ceremony, music, photography, decor and more. They will share funny stories and practical advice.

Each chapter will end with a summary and a list of resources to get started. Throughout, the book will be illustrated with photos from real weddings.

Did you plan an interesting wedding, finding creative ways to make it your own? Or do you know somebody who did? Wilson is interested in talking to brides who are willing to go into detail about their wedding experiences. E-mail her at if you’re interested in sharing your thoughts.

Wilson has more than 20 years of experience in writing for publication, including print journalism, freelance writing and editing, and Web publishing. She tied the knot with her husband in September 2007 and learned that some of her best advice came from trusted friends.

Wilson is a 1988 graduate of Milton Area High School.
