From the moment Amy and Dan are getting engaged on a trip to Venice, we are drawn into the preparations for their dream wedding. Or perhaps more correct, for Amy's dream wedding. The wedding she has been dreaming about since she was eight years old and dressing up her Barbie dolls in wedding outfits.
Eight months before their June wedding Amy and Dan are busy preparing their big day. The venue, the guests, the invitations, the cake, the flowers..... the list is endless. In fact, Amy is obsessed with the preparations, every little detail has to be perfect. Saturday after Saturday, her mother Helen, her sister Ciara and her best friend Tess are being dragged along hunting for dresses for the bride and the bridesmaids, which proves to be no easy task.
Amy's little pink wedding planner is getting fuller and fuller of lists, photos and notes and wanting the best for her eldest daughter, the mother of the bride does her best to assist and help. Until there is a sudden turn of events...
With great insight and wisdom the author writes beautifully about what a wedding is really about. About love and family life, ups and downs, for better and worse.
A wonderful book, difficult to put down.
