    Fun chic book!

    This book was pure entertainment. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to those who like female bridezilla type books.

    Maybe I'm Not So Anti-Commitment

    Pros: Before I even start reviewing this book, I have to admit that I'm about as anti-commitment as anti-commitment can get. I don't want kids. I don't want to get married. I have the worst time staying in relationships. But halfway through this book, I started daydreaming about my OWN wedding and took a 'Dream Wedding' quiz to put on my MySpace page. I felt like I sold out to Proudly Single Sistas everywhere, but hell, when a book is good, it's good and GREAT books make you think about things you usually don't pay attention to. Now on to the book...Melissa Senate uses her dry sense of humor, sarcastic jokes, and great dialogue sense to weave a hilarious story about two people who are being paid to have 'free' weddings, although these weddings are planned beforehand and the exact opposite of what the two brides want. There's everything from feathers on a dress to copper rings to hired family members to replace those 'less fortunate.' 'Acid' was entertaining with her strict stylistic view, but Devlin cracked me up. The 'Modern Bride's' honeymoon location made me cringe, especially since I'm FROM this city and frozen in December! The story went smoothly throughout and I enjoyed the twists and turns of cold feet, pregnancy, marriage, family, and the identity crisis. Cons: What is up with Red Dress Ink books? Are the authors required to only make blonde people with blue eyes as the good-looking ones? Hitler would be proud, but what about everybody else? That is getting old. In mid-conversation, there were sections on someone having blonde hair. For no reason at all, the author said one of the ladies flipped her 'blonde hair' and put it in a ponytail. Why does the color of hair need to be constantly remembered? Maybe it seems so insane to me because I come from a different culture where the color of hair does not make a woman pretty. I also got tired of Emmett's constant fits, but it's not like it wasn't realistic just annoying. Regardless of the few cons I could think of, I really love this author's writing style. I thought Lynn Messina was going to be my favorite author from this publishing company, but she may have a run for her money.

    solid chick lit tale

    WOW Weddings provides the $100,000 funding for each of two marriage ceremonies if the brides agree to being videotaped, keep journals, and accept the type of ceremony offered. Thinking she will receive a free wedding, co-workers Eloise and Philippa agree to the terms. Eloise will have a modern ceremony while Phyl will be more of a traditional bride.--- Rather quickly, the two brides learn that there is no such thing as a free lunch as the cost of freedom is high. Eloise hates her modern wedding that emphasize a yellow wedding dress with bird feathers out of Sesame Street and a hall that looks like Dracula was the interior decorator; Phyl detests her traditional setting that reminds her of her grandmother. Both would like to swap roles, but neither wants to say anything that might jinx their nuptials as both have relationship issues to contend with even as they step closer to the first step down the aisle.--- Though this chick lit tale sounds like an inane reality show and contains some silliness, Melissa Senate injects several deep issues on relationships within the amusing story line. Eloise and Phyl are strong centers to the dual plot while the support cast provides depth either to the wedding scenarios or the brides. Sub-genre fans will want to attend the galas while agreeing with the two women as to WHOSE WEDDING IS IT?--- Harriet Klausner

    Silly and realistic...

    Can you get something for nothing? If you think so, then read this book and be disabused of that fallacy. Elouise thinks she is getting a free wedding, courtesy of WOW weddings, in return all she has to do is be filmed and journal every stage for the magazine. It sounds simple enough to her and the other bride. Elouise will be the modern bride and Phyl the traditional bride. They did not realize the freedom of choice they have about each facet is severely limited. Nor did they realize that although Elouise looks very modern, she does not want a Big Bird Trekkie wedding. Phyl does; traditional trappings remind her of her grandmother. Added to all this chaos, Elouise longs to reconnect with her family, which is not as easy as it might sound. With her job and her future happiness riding on what happens next, what will Elouise do? .................................. **** Often silly and more often realistic, a touching center hides under the laughter. Readers need not be familiar with the prequel to be able to follow along. ****
