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.

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!

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.

Another hit from the guilty pleasure that is the Babylon series, in which Imogen Edwards-Jones teams up with a bunch of top players in a given industry, extracts their best tips, tricks, behind-the-scenes secrets and scandalous stories, then packages them all up in a neat week-in-the-life semi-fictional demi-novel for our entertainment. Oh, how I love 'em...

This installment, as the name suggests, is all about the wedding industry, as seen from the perspective of a top London wedding planner. Babylon enthusiasts can probably already guess the rest - the helter-skelter pitch through dress fittings and flowers, bridezillas and warring relatives, celebrity nuptials and wedding day mishaps. Alongside the day-to-day running of the business and the memorable weddings the planner has survived (or heard about through the grapevine), there are also plenty of interesting details that go beyond the obvious: How finely tuned do even the most dull and practical of details have to be? How does a planner network with all the other companies that make up the wedding industry? Which readings are guaranteed to bore your vicar to tears? And what the hell is a bridal potty? As always, this book gave me a renewed respect for the hard work going on behind the scenes in the service industry, showing the reader all of the lovely highs but also the stressful lows, the egos and the tantrums, deftly demonstrating just how far these professionals have to go to serve the ridiculous demands and passing whims of their high-maintenance clients.

For me, it seems like Edwards-Jones is becoming better and better at this formula, streamlining her books with each new release.

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.
