Goodreads: When Rachel’s handsome studio exec boyfriend proposes to her on theSex and the City movie set, she can’t fathom the dizzying adventure about to begin. Accepting a once-in-a-lifetime venue deal helps their budget, but it puts them on a crash course to get married in just four months – and time isn’t their only challenge. They battle a wacky assortment of vendors, including a hair stylist who fakes a car accident and a makeup artist overly inspired by Marilyn Manson. This while testing their love and discovering much-needed truths about each other amid tastings and tulle. Determined to use her nervous energy productively, Rachel enters every contest she can find, winning diamond earrings, a honeymoon, a photographer, and not one but two wedding gowns. Her obsession with pop culture lands the entire wedding party on not one but two hit reality television shows. As the clock ticks down, there’s just one problem: her staunch perfectionism and fear of dancing threaten to derail everything. She has to learn to redefine perfection and embrace the mistake – or risk losing it all.
Ope’s Opinion: I need to tell you upfront that I am not much of a memoir reader. So this book is out of my usual genre. My daughter ( who just got married ) loved this book and suggested I read it after her wedding. I took it on vacation after the wedding.
I think if you are planning a wedding or just had one, you might enjoy the perspective of this bride. She had several interesting things happen to her along her way to the alter.
If you like memoirs in general you certainly like this one.
Rating: Two Chairs – I may have one friend who might like this book.
