"I hate weddings. If you had an older sister like Sky, you would too. Sky was perfect. Her wedding was perfect. It almost killed her.
"I'm Daria, the rebellious indie film critic, the fat sister. Nobody expected me to get married. Eight years after Sky's wedding, the rose petal perfection of it all still hung cover me like a mocking pink cloud. Not that I didn't have a love life -- or at least a sex life -- but I'll talk about the Worst Boyfriend Awards later."
San Francisco indie indie film critic Daria MacClellan is most comfortable in a monster movie poster T-shirt and blue jeans. Yet when she falls in love and plans to marry, family drama hijacks her engagement and she's trapped into a formal wedding with her perfectionist, anorexic sister, Sky, planning the whole thing.
Daria adores her fiance, but her wedding seems to be spiraling into a horror film. Will the spectre of a picture perfect wedding turn her into the Bride of the Living Dead?
