FOUR BOOKS WITH A WEDDING THEME



Weddings are my crack. Whether it's shaking my tush on the dance floor as a guest, bonding with a best one as bridesmaid or briding the shiz out of my own big day... I just can't get enough!

Which is odd, because I couldn't have been less bothered about getting married, growing up. I didn't force Barbie and Ken into pink, frothy nuptials and I certainly didn't dream about my perfect white dress. But when friends started getting married I was suddenly all in. And now that the tidal wave of weddings has slowed to more of a trickle, I get most of my fix through books.

Here are my top four reads with a wedding theme...


WHAT FRESH HELL, Lucy Vine
Lilah couldn't give a shit about getting married and yet she's busting her balls and her bank balance attending every hen do slash wedding in sight. Then her mate Lauren gets engaged, turns into a raging 'zilla and Lilah's life starts to get stressful. I LOVED this. Caps for emphasis. I'm going to rename it What Refreshing Heaven because it's so good to read a book in this genre that doesn't have finding the one / living happily ever after as its focus. This is relatable AF and you need it in your life.
(I was kindly sent an advanced copy but What Fresh Hell is coming out in March.)

ALWAYS THE BRIDESMAID, Lindsey Kelk
There are so many opportunities for a good old laugh out loud with this absolute beaut. Maddie's been enlisted as bridesmaid by her best pal and, you guessed it, crazed bridezilla, and soon finds herself stretched to the max as she plans her bestie's big day. I wrote a full review of Always The Bridesmaid here if you fancy a look.

JEEVES AND THE WEDDING BELLS, Sebastian Faulks
P.G. Wodehouse's famous duo Jeeves and Wooster are brought back to life by Sebastian Faulks in this absolute sunbeam of a novel, which I can't recommend enough. You'll be transported back to a time gone by for some high-brow high jinks in this lovely, light-hearted read.

WEDDING NIGHT, Sophie Kinsella
Newly single Lottie has decided to shake off her heartache by marrying her first love and sister Fliss, who's going through a divorce, thinks that is the World's Worst Idea. Cue farcical scenes as Fliss tries to sabotage Lottie's nuptials. You'll storm through this super fun book... it's the perfect holiday read.
