It doesn’t matter if you’re engaged, already married or chronically single ~ I guarantee you that Rachel Eddey’s snarky and charming Running of the Bride will be tough to put down!
In Running of the Bride: My Frenzied Quest to Tie the Knot, Tear Up the Dance Floor, and Figure Out Why My 15 Minutes of Fame Included Commercial Breaks, Rachel gives readers a firsthand account of her star-studded proposal on the set of the Sex and the City film, to her battle for the perfect wedding dress at Filene’s Basement’s brutal Running of the Brides® and finally her experiences with not one but TWO wedding reality shows on TLC!
Here’s a summary from the publisher, Globe Pequot Press:
When Rachel’s handsome studio exec boyfriend proposes to her on the Sex and the City movie set, she can’t fathom the dizzying adventure about to begin. Accepting a once-in-a-lifetime venue deal helps their budget, but it puts them on a crash course to get married in just four months – and time isn’t their only challenge. They battle a wacky assortment of vendors, including a hair stylist who fakes a car accident and a makeup artist channeling Marilyn Manson, all while testing their love amid tastings and tulle. Using her nervous energy productively, Rachel enters every contest she can find, winning diamond earrings, a honeymoon, a photographer, and two wedding gowns, and her pop culture obsession lands the entire wedding party on two hit reality TV shows. There’s just one problem as the clock ticks down: Her staunch perfectionism and fear of dancing threaten to derail everything. She has to redefine perfect and embrace the mistakes – or risk losing it all. Please take your seats. The wedding is about to begin.
In short, this book is laugh-out-loud funny; Rachel’s wit, snarky humor and never-ending pop culture references make for a fabulous read. Whether she’s stalking celebrities, entering myriad wedding giveaways and contests or getting in a little over her head with reality television shows, Rachel’s story will charm a smile out of even the most serious of wedding planners.
