When Rachel's handsome studio exec boyfriend proposes on the Sex and the City movie set, she can't fathom the dizzying adventure ahead. Accepting a once-in-a-lifetime venue deal helps their budget but puts them on a crash course to get married in just four monthsand time isn't their only challenge. They battle a wacky host of vendors, including a hair stylist who fakes a car accident and a makeup artist channeling Marilyn Manson, all while testing their love amid tastings and tulle. Using her nervous energy productively, Rachel enters every contest she can find, winning diamond earrings, a honeymoon, a photographer, and two wedding gowns. Her pop culture obsession lands the wedding party on two hit reality TV shows. There's just one problem as the clock ticks down: Her staunch perfectionism and fear of dancing threaten to derail everything. She has to redefine perfect and embrace the mistakesor risk losing it all. Please take your seats. The wedding is about to begin.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings If you are planning a wedding or just got married, run to the closest bookstore or hop online and order this book - cute, funny and the perfect read! I read this book, the weekend before I got married in two sittings and wanted to read half of it aloud to my sweet, sweet groom who's to do list, is quite longer than mine at this point!!
This book reads like a season of 24 about planning a wedding! Rachel's brother, my namesake, turned me on to this. It's a great summer read, but good for any season, obviously. The pages fly by. You're gonna really like this.
Hilarious quick read.
