I bought this book after reading some good reviews for it, I was mostly intrigued by the comments about it actually being written in the form of a diary - I just had to see this for myself so I decided to buy it.

The first entry in Kiki's diary was all about the proposal and I found myself laughing after just a few pages (always a good sign). The diary style did take a little while to get used to but it was really fun to read - I felt like I was snooping in someone's diary, something I'd never do... honest .

I loved reading about Kiki's job as an editorial assistant at Polka Dot Books, working with books would be a dream job for me so this was a fascinating part of the story in my eyes. When she was put in charge of a celebrity wedding book I was excited to see how it would affect the plans for her own wedding.

There were lots of funny moments throughout but a few really stood out - an eventful sales conference, drunken diary entries and a less than successful hen weekend were just some of the laugh out loud moments.

As the book progressed Kiki just got more and more swept away by the whole wedding planning thing and that is when I noticed cracks appearing. I actually felt torn at this point because I kind of agreed with both parties and couldn't choose a side, I could only hope that they would come to a mutual agreement that made them both happy.

After many bumps in the road a wedding did happen and I personally enjoyed the end result. I think that this is a must-read for anyone planning a wedding, especially with the handy wedding guide at the back of the book.

This was an enjoyable read, different from other books I've read and funny too!

I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to everyone who is engaged, married or has ever been to a wedding. Actually, I'd recommend it to anyone, it is a really good read that keeps you wanting more and is both funny and heartwarming.

Although it is a diary, I think the characters have been well developed and I would quite like to be friends with them in real life. It was easy to identify with Kiki, the main character, as she gets caught up in the all-consuming wedding-planning madness that seems to be the norm. Underneath the crazed bridezilla-ness, though, she comes across as a really nice, normal, funny person and you can see how see's managed to land herself such a loving and caring husband as Thom.

I particularly liked Kiki's relationship with her sister and the mother-daughter dynamic also struck a cord. It's funny how we all revert to being teenagers when we go home.

The thing I liked most about the story was the subtle way it shows you that you don't need the doves, the toastmaster or the horse-drawn carriage to make your wedding day special. What's more, there is a very informative section at the back with excellent tips for planning a wedding (or any event, in fact).

Thanks to the taster chapter at the back of the book, I can't wait to find out what happens in the The Baby Diaries when Kiki finds out she is pregnant. I'm sure there will be as many funny and moving moments as in The Wedding Diaries.

The Wedding Diaries is the first in a new series from debut author Sam Binnie.

I love anything to do with weddings, so I was really looking forward to reading this book. The Wedding Diaries follows Kiki Carlow as she sets about planning her wedding to fiancé Thom. From finding the perfect dress to planning the honeymoon - how hard can it be?

It is written in the format of Kiki's personal diary, which I loved as it made me feel that I knew Kiki well. Binnie's style of writing had me hooked straight away and I particularly loved the inclusion of lots of wedding `to do' lists.

The wedding Diaries is a fun and addictive read. There are some hilarious moments that had me laughing out loud and quite a few times where I felt really sorry for Kiki. One of my favourite things was the inclusion of a famous wedding from literature at the beginning of each month - it is a lovely, fitting touch.

If you are looking for an exciting book chronicling the highs (and lows) of planning a wedding then look no further than this brilliant debut. Sam Binnie's next book is The Baby Diaries, which is due out next spring. I can't wait to read it!

I admit I'm not the sort of person who will devour a book in 3 days. I'm more likely to get half way through and become distracted by something on the telly or on the table.

The Wedding Diaries went some way to changing this: I devoured it in a weekend. I was genuinely interested in what happened to so many of the characters, not just the central pair, and I really was rooting for them all. The reason I remained engaged and found this book such a page-turner was the author's tone. The prose is laced with intelligent wit and just the right amount of sarcasm to keep us empathising with the characters and brilliantly entertained throughout.

The author's own character and sense of humour is shown in a section at the end containing her own wedding tips and advice. Make sure you read this too - it's not only spot on, it's hilarious!

Very much looking forward to the next in the series.
