4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same from the Babylon Series 26 July 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I do like the Babylon books, however Hotel Babylon, Air Babylon and Fashion Babylon are the only convincing ones so far. Beach Babylon, Pop Babylon and this one, Wedding Babylon are not exposes in any way. We all know what happens at a wedding. The book follows the usual format. A man goes through a day or in this case, a week of being a wedding planner. All the anecdotes she has gathered happen to this one man in this week making it sound much more interesting than it probably is. We have the stalker bride who used the planner and now gets him to organise every social event she holds. There are lots of references to staff stealing drinks, wedding planners sleeping with the bridesmaid to avoid going to a horrible B&B and lots of little stories about people spending lots of money shoehorned together in one book. I didn't feel any love in this book, I felt it was done like this: Send someone to ask loads of wedding planners what's the most lavish/horrible/exciting things that's ever happened in your career. Type them all up as if they happened to one person or if it won't fit in with your timeline, say that it happened to a friend he knew. This book is useless to anyone who got married in the "normal" way as it only really deals with the super-rich clients so I couldn't identify with it as being in any way like my wedding.

If you haven't read Air, Hotel or Fashion Babylon and were considering this one instead, I'd say try one of those first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Entertaining! Funny! 17 Jun. 2009
Format:Hardcover
Loved the behind the scenes look into the wedding industry from the view of a wedding planner...like the bride who keeps coming back for all her parties! It shows the bride from the outside world and how easy it is to become a bridezilla! Its an easy read and highly recommended...perfect as a gift for a bride to be as well as enjoyable reading. Prepare to laugh!

Format:Paperback
I am getting married in a month's time. When I bought this book, I just wanted to have a laugh. I did. But at the same time, I've seen the other side of the should-be-happy-and-perfect weddings. It's not just the money that has been thrown out like water, it's the emotion and other unrelated stuff. A wedding should be simple and for those who are really happy for you. It's not a show - unlike shows, which are inevitably fake, love should be true and genuine, which is capable of lasting for a lifetime.

The book describes numerous luxurious scenes of weddings, but it actually makes me want to have a simple one even more. All girls, whatever her relationship status is, can benefit from the reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars The world of weddings revealed! 3 Feb. 2010
By C. Rucroft VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
When I first started, I wasn't sure. It's told from a man's perspective (which I wasn't expecting) and almost like a diary in style. Anyway, I carried on and I'm glad I did! The book is funny and I was shocked at some of the things you find out (Did you know a wedding cake costs £200 to make, but people charge £6000?).

It's not a literary masterpiece, but if you're looking for a light read, which is a bit of fun, this is your book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wedding Babylon 2 Aug. 2009
Format:Hardcover
I have always loved the way that the author puts the reader into a narrative situation. Having been a little disappointed by Beach and Pop Babylon, Imogen is back on top form with this book. From toilet provision to the drugs, you are taken through the week of a wedding planner along with the little stories that come along with it. I couldn't put this one down at all. This is a book that I will remember.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made me laugh out loud 28 Jun. 2012
Format:Hardcover
Loved Hotel Babylon, liked Air Babylon, but so far Wedding Babylon has been the only one to crease me up laughing. The chief wedding planner gnawing through his knuckles/chain-smoking in the graveyard moments; and the brilliant but desperately bored vicar in the Alice/Richard wedding. Less of an expose than the other books, but I thought it was more fun. And also somehow more touching, esp with the Esther and Nick wedding. Would definitely recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read but not the usual standard 4 Jan. 2010
By RHA28
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I totally agree with Mrs Carrie Smith's review so I won't write too much as she has summed it up in a nutshell. Hotel and Air Babylon were much better books. There was nothing in this book that took me by surprise or shed any new light on the wedding industry but it is well written and a good read. I am currently reading Beach Babylon and am enjoying that more.
