OK, first of all, this book is NOT about Grace Kelly and her bridesmaids. Considering the title, I thought it would be and, seeing how I like a biography every now and then, I decided to read it. It is actually the autobiography of Judy Balaban. And my guess is Judy sat with her Thesaurus as she was writing. Now I'm fairly articulate and I have a decent vocabulary, but I had my dictionary (seriously) at hand as I read this. I'm sure Judy intended to sound intellectual, but to me she sounded pret...more
On the pure surface, I don't have any complaints about this book. It doesn't pretend to be anything other than what the title and subtitle advertise. In that way, there are no surprises.

Written by one of Grace's close friends who served as a bridesmaid if offers an inside perspective that isn't usually seen, but it does seem a a bit jaded to one side at times too. Thought the book concentrates primarly on the wedding other parts of the bridesmaids and brides life is given as backgroud. This is one of the first books I read about Grace and personal I enjoyed it and would reccommend it to people intrested in reading about Grace.
Once you read this book, you may never look at Grace in the movies in the same way. I think I look upon her with some pity now, for her life was not quite what she had longed for and anticipated.

Such a lovingly told book -- an insider view. The inimitable Ms. Kelly, Her Serene Highness, an amazing woman and an amazing life.
