Running of the Bride: A Great Gift for Brides!
The actual complete title of this memoir is Running of the Bride: My Frenzied Quest to Tie the Knot, Tear Up the Dance Floor, and Figure Out Why My 15 Minutes of Fame Included Commercial Breaks.
Running of the Bride by Rachel Eddey is a hilarious, heartwarming tale of a young woman’s quest for the altar inNew York City.
When Rachel’s handsome studio exec boyfriend proposes to her on the Sex 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 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, and her pop culture obsession lands the entire 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 mistakes—or risk losing it all. Please take your seats. The wedding is about to begin.
Overall, this book is both funny and familiar to anyone who has ever felt stressed out while trying to plan a dream wedding! While many of the situations in the book may not happen to the average bride, the feelings of needing to create the perfect wedding are very relatable! This would be a perfect gift for a friend who just got engaged!
