Top critical review
on 8 July 2010
This is a very open, honest, and amusing story of one woman's quest down the aisle, from the incredibly unlikely Prince Charming to her mother and sister's hyper-organisation complete with crises, mishaps and eventual wedded bliss (sort of).
What kept me laughing was that despite the ridiculous running around and occasionally farcical nature of the whole thing, anybody who's ever planned or helped to plan a wedding can recognise the truth in it. Though Lucy is a particularly haphazard bride, everyone is going to see least one anecdote in here and say "ooohh, something similar happened to..."
It's not the deepest thing you'll ever read, and I have to confess wondering if Lucy's dialogue with everyone in her life really is as witty and zingy as she would have it appear... but to pass the time (or perhaps bring some comfort to other brides who are wondering why this dream wedding is turning out to be such a royal pain in the backside) it's a fun little treat.
