Worm has proposed to Worm and Worm said, "Yes." Now they are going to get married. Everyone is so happy and excited. But they want it to be done just right. Cricket volunteers to marry them. The bees are going to be the bride's bees. Beetle will be the best beetle.
Surrounded by cute, loyal friends, the Worm and Worm are almost there. One by one all the little wedding details get solved. Who will eat the cake? Where will they put the wedding rings? Worms clearly have things to sort out to make this a wedding to remember. Then, the question comes up, "Who will be the bride?" "Who will be the groom?"
This is a charming story about very lovable characters who are going to get married. It's also a very charming story about how getting married doesn't have to be done the same traditional way. It doesn't have to be done the way it's always been done and that means it's really just all about loving each other whether you're worms or human beings.
