I don't normally read books of this type, but a friend suggested it to me, and, fortunately, I was smart enough to take the suggestion. Rachel Eddey has written a funny, sassy, and very entertaining book cataloging the ups and downs of preparing for The Perfect Wedding. It reads like Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, where expectations often fall short of their intended goals and whatever can go wrong almost always does. If they ever do make it into a movie, it will be a great romantic comedy. Rachel and John, the two wannabe-marrieds, are engaging, likable, and funny, and the huge supporting cast of siblings, friends, parents, co-workers, and wedding-industry practitioners carry the story along nicely. Eddey's take on all the outrageousness is also highly entertaining and perceptive. Although it's hardly a how-to book for achieving the state of matrimony flawlessly, there is enough wisdom here, and youthful optimism, to calm the fears of even the most ceremonially-challenged of wannabe wives and husbands. Whether you're getting married or not, this is a book you will enjoy.

Rachel Eddey, can we be best friends please?? You are hilarious. The story of the book was good, reminded me of a lot of problems I had when I was planning my wedding, though my husband is no movie studio executive. And the Sex and the City ladies didn't congratulate me. Actually, this story was MUCH better than my story, now I see why the book was published. Overall it was a fun read - if you like Jen Lancaster, Chelsea Handler, Tina Fey, and or Mindy Kaling you'll love this book, too.

Running of the Bride is a fun and light-hearted easy read. I read it over a weekend. It's perfect for summer reading on a beach, in the park, or on vacation. In fact, I gave the book to my mother and she read it on a lounge chair on her recent cruise. The writing is both funny and personal, allowing you to enjoy the experience along with the author.

A deft and funny book that will stand, long after the "Sex and the City" references require footnotes, as a hilarious report on the way a very particular person in a very particular city dealt with the mores prevailing around marriage in the early years of the 21st century

I found this book fascinating. I feel I really got to know Rachel and her friends and family.The book was a real page turner.
Even though I am not a new bride looking for tips to plan a wedding, I got to enjoy this book reading it as a mother with three daughters who have been through the wedding adventures.
I can see this book as a great engagement or wedding shower gift or favor for a perspective bride. Every bride should have her 15 minutes of fame.
The only criticism of this book is that the bride ran too fast. I would have liked to read more about the bride and her characters, and I hope I will get to if Rachel Eddey writes a sequel.

The author's writing style is so witty and clever and I loved reading all of her snarky little comments. It's definitely a fast read that kept me laughing the whole way through. Sometimes she was a little mean and I probably wouldn't have said the things she said, but come on we know we are secretly all thinking what she's thinking! A little sassy goes a long way for this author. I'd recommend her and I'm looking forward to future books.

Got this for a friend after I found out she got engaged and she raved to me about it! It's officially my go-to engagement gift.

With all these summer weddings coming up, this is the perfect gift to relax the tension a little bit from all of the stressful wedding planning!! After I read this book, I had to give it to my bridezilla-of-a-best-friend so she could realize what matters most if what happens and who you are AFTER the wedding, and it helped her get over the craziness of the wedding a little bit. I will definitely be giving this as engagement / bridal shower gifts because it's a funny read that hopefully will make it a helluva lot easier for me to deal with my friends as they go crazy for their weddings.
