But then our pastor starts asking lots of questions.
His parents say I haven't dealt with my past.
I have horrible wedding disaster dreams.
I can't find the perfect dress.
I have to manipulate him to get my way.
An old boyfriend asks me to run away with him.
Mybest friend says I'm going to ruin everything.
And forever starts to sound like a really long time.
Which totally freaks me out and makes me question everything I know.
Should best friends get married?
Will my past affect our relationship?
Are my horrible dreams a warning?
Will I ever find a dress?
Could his sexiness be clouding my judgment?
Am I going to ruin everything?
Or is it just a case of cold feet?
And then I have to decide. Am I willing to giveup on true love forever, or am I going to listen to my heart and marry him?

I loved, loved, loved this book. Not enough ranting in the world would cover how great I thought That Wedding was. Jillian Dodd did an amazing job with this sequel to That Boy.
Jayden "JJ" Reynolds is such a fun character. I love her personality and relate-ability. She is just an eccentric girl next door way in over her head. She suddenly finds herself engaged to her best friend, already with a life of memories together.
That Wedding takes Phillip and Jayden from friends to lovers, with all the baggage only two best friends can carry.
The book was romantic and I enjoyed the fact that it started with a happy beginning and ended in a similar fashion. This story just takes you on a journey of an overwhelmed bride just trying to stay afloat in a sea of wedding obsession and the onslaught of life.
I really don't have much more to say except to run, don't walk, out to get this series by Jillian Dodd. That Boy is book one and That Wedding is book two in this great contemporary romance series.

Okay, this may not be a 4 or 5 star read for everyone, but it was for me. How lucky to marry your best friend. I'm not talking about someone you've dated for a while and now consider your best friend and you get married. I'm talking about someone you've grown up with, shared all the teen angst with, gone to college and shared all the college craziness with, someone you trust more than you trust yourself. How lucky is that? This book is all about this kind of love.
I just finished this book and I have such a tight happy feeling in my throat. You know the kind. This author captured a bit of the guy friendship most women envy. I strongly related to this book so maybe this is why it was such a huge hit for me.
Jadyn loved Phillip and wanted to marry him, but worried about the "what if it doesn't work? will I lose my best friend? then what?". She struggled with learning to trust herself and this relationship and the truth she knew in her heart - Phillip would never let her down. She won't let him. Nothing changed for them other than their love growing so much stronger.
Quite a bit of wedding fluff in this book. I enjoyed it, but may not be for everyone. This is a book you have to look beneath the humor and the surface to glean the real story. Point of it all: You must believe in love and you must believe you deserve to be just that happy!
This is one of those books I will read when I want to feel good about life and love. A real "go to" book when things get tough and you feel let down. I anxiously wait for more by this author.
Word to the wise :: this is not a YA book. Whole lot of sex, drinking and sex [implied, not graphic]. Oh, now I've done it, the YA's will run to this book 8>)
A truly enjoyable fun read.
Another note: while I was writing the review, I bumped to 5 stars. Just that good!

I loved this book almost as much as the first one. Again, there was the connection to the characters. A book that makes me feel what the characters do is a big hit for me. I'm looking forward to more from this author.

I loved the first book 'that boy' , i've only started reading that wedding but love it so far with one exception the author uses the word like way to much! It makes jj sound like a air head when ever other word is like but if u can get past that its a great book.
