With one of this week’s guest author (Christi Barth) and her novel Planning For Love I realized we never discussed wedding romances, and summer being the season for weddings, now is the perfect time!
What are wedding romances you ask? Well romance stories which are focused around weddings! Either the heroine or the hero (or both of them) has a wedding related job, like wedding planner, photographer, florist, baker, etc.
Long before I realized these kinds of books existed I was already a fan of this type of movies: My Best Friend’s Wedding, The Wedding Planner, etc. Even if the movie wasn’t of great quality I very much enjoyed getting a glimpse of the behind the scenes of how a wonderful lavish wedding is put together. And when this is combined with a group of close friends, so that besides the wedding preparations we get the laughs and cries of friendships and loves, in my opinion that makes the perfect blend of sweet romance! (just look at these covers, aren’t they wonderfully suggestive, you can almost taste the bubbles in that apricot champagne! )
So if you are like me and love to get your small dose of tulle, pastel frosting and bouquet talk (even if you wouldn’t want the whole sequin-crazy shebang for your own wedding) you don’t have to wait for the next rom com, you can get your fixing of wedding talk by reading a wedding romance. So far I have found and read the first 3 novels in Nora Roberts’ Bride Quartet series and Planning For Love in Christi Barth’s Aisle Bound trilogy, but I also found this list of recommendation.
So please tell me,
Do you like wedding themed movies/novels?
What are your favourite wedding movies?
Any good wedding romance novels you could recommend?
