You don't have to be raised in the South to find this book laugh-out-loud funny, but if you've ever had to plan or participate in a wedding, you'll laugh until you cry!

Only family has the power to drive you this crazy. Only love has the power to get you through the insanity.

Cute, funny, fluffy. Loved the cast of over-the-top characters described in such brilliant detail here!

Ellen is getting married and chaos reins in the lead up to her wedding . Her sisters Kate and Scarlett have their own issues . One has just been dumped and left with a snobbery dog , the other has her hands full with two kids and a so so marriage . Add in their chain smoking religious mother and their adorable grandmother and this makes for an enjoyable tale of weddings and madness ! Easy read and pretty enjoyable .

This is the sort of book I enjoy when my brain decides to take a day off. Loved, Loved, Loved this book.The characters are recognizably Southern in every way and in all the various quirks. It was laugh out loud funny in parts and sweet and touching in others. It caught the essence of the crazy roller coaster in the week preceding a Southern wedding and dealing with all the crazy, neurotic, infuriating relatives (especially mothers and sisters) that you love.

This was an entertaining book with characters that were based on reality. I enjoyed "getting to know" all of the family members as they prepared for the wedding. This author certainly knows her Southern women! The were instances that had me laughing. It was a fun read and I couldn't put it down.

I was born in the little town of Thomasville, GA, where the pool hall is still the best place to get a chili dog. I was raised in Savannah, GA - one of the most beautiful cities in the country and I consider Savannah my hometown. (Contrary to all the books written about Savannah, the air is redolent of neither moonlight nor magnolias, but more often dead fish and the paper mill upriver; still, I ...more
