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