Oh, no, sorry, I’m not on about the stresses for the bride!! The bride will be with her husband! I was on about who would have the privilege of accompanying a singleton to a wedding, a plus one, a wedding date. STRESS!! Now if that wasn’t enough to send your mind into overdrive, you then find out from the bride herself that your ex partner will be at the wedding. Not just a quick fumble type ex, an ex that truly broke your heart and has moved on faster than a conveyor belt at the supermarket.
Single, going to a wedding, ex partner to be there with NEW partner, did I say single? Surely it won’t be that much of a disaster….will it?
My, my, myyyyyy Delilah. Yes, I did it. Sorry Delilah! Delilah has six months to find herself a date for an old friends wedding. Usually it would be a simple task as she could have taken her best friend, however, her ex Ben is going to be there. Cue major girl drama and her two best friends (and sister) trying to set her up with every Tom, Dick, and Harry. Well, Delilah’s sister’s choice of men is quite questionable. A man and a computer, what could possibly go wrong….
I want Delilah’s job, she works in a biscuit factory. Unfortunately, she doesn’t work where the biscuits are made, that is the only downfall. Although, she does work next to something else that is ‘sweet’.Read more ›
The Wedding Date is a fab romantic comedy – quick-witted, refreshing and a purely fun read. Delilah (cue bursting into Plain White T’s song) is not over her ex, Ben, no matter how much she tries to convince everyone otherwise. But when she’s invited to an old friend’s wedding and discovers Ben will be attending, very much loved up with someone else, she’s desperate to prove just how much she’s moved on. The only trouble is, she doesn’t have a plus one, but having lied (one of many) to her friend and suggested otherwise, she needs to find a date for the fast approaching big day. But who?
This contemporary romance novel sees Delilah become a character extremely relatable to a lot of other twenty-plus year old women. She’s an easy character to get along with – not always making the best of choices but at least she admits it. Written in first-person POV, the way she tells the story is very engaging and it feels like a friend is filling you in on the latest gossip rather than simply reading a book about a stranger and some mad decisions. Parts of her character are easy to identify with and maybe you haven’t made all of her chaotic choices but I’m sure you’ve considered at least one of them!
Through online dating, random setups from friends and family and other encounters, Delilah goes on a series of dates and each one made me laugh out loud at some point. There were some truly horrific dates in there. If you’re not currently dating then I think this book will make you feel mightily relieved! And if you are… well, I hope you have a bit more luck than Delilah.
It took me to about 15% before I fully connected with this book but by that stage, I was so engrossed and eager to see whether Delilah would get her wedding date and if so, who would it be?Read more ›
I loved the friendship she has with best friends Lauren and Ryan and the ways they try to help her out with her wedding problem of needing a date. Though the storyline itself has been done before this still had its unique style and twists to keep it fresh.
Starting each chapter with a text conversation between characters was different and many made me giggle at the sheer honesty of how you would expect the characters to converse.
I think Ryan could have been a bit stronger willed towards his mum and Delilahs younger brother Justin could have been given more storyline but overall was a nice easy relaxing read that made me smile
I thought the plot moved at a good pace there weren't really any slow parts to the story at all. There were some comical moments that were great but also slightly embarrassing for Delilah. The story isn't a complicated one so it is easy to follow with no confusing moments.
Overall I thought this book was full of charm and enjoyable, I was pulled into Delilah's world and was definitely entertained! The characters in this book were really fun and even though Delilah had her faults she really made this book an engaging read. There were just enough characters to make it interesting but not too many that you forgot who was who. I would recommend reading The Wedding Date if you are in need of a pick me up. It is a charming read that is fun, humorous and perfect for brightening up a dull day!
Four stars from me.
Thank you to Carina UK and Netgalley for my copy to read and review.
