Every Bride Has Her Day by Janice Thompson


Katie Fisher is ecstatic. Pro basketball star Brady James has proposed, and she can't wait to start planning their life together. But it's hard to focus on her own happily ever after when her calendar is filling up with celebrations for friends and family. Beyond that, it seems everyone around her has an opinion - and a strong one at that - on what Katie's special day should look like. Will she ever manage to settle all of the details for her storybook wedding? Or will her overzealous friends and relations make a mess of everything?

Review: I believe this is probably the last book in the series, Brides With Style, which I am sad to say. This trilogy has brought me many laughs. I love Katie's extremely quirky family (especially her crazy grandma and eccentric aunt!), the ridiculously cute town of Fairfield and all the colourful characters and churches there, Katie's half dozen brothers and their crazy love lives, and the wacky brides that visit the bridal shop where she works. 

I also really appreciated how this book touches on the rather sensitive topic of weddings. Having personally experienced trying to plan a wedding with some rather mind-boggling and overwhelming opinions from the inlaws, I really related to Katie's dilemma. Weddings are supposed to be the bride's day, but it seems that so many girls get completely trampled over by their own families or their husband-to-be's families and they end up being stressed out, miserable, and paying for a wedding that isn't even what they wanted in the first place. I know so many girls this has happened to. I think every parent who is having a son or daughter get married should read this book because in a cute, silly way to highlight the very real anxiety and trouble families place on brides. 

This was a great book. Really enjoyed it and I am rather hoping there is one more book in the series so that I can read more of the crazy adventures of the Fairfield Folk ... gotta love the crazy grandma!

Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and to Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, for a free copy of Every Bride Has Her Day in exchange for my honest opinion.
