A funny thing happened...

Unlike most men of his acquaintance, Gregory Bridgerton believes in true love. And he is convinced that when he finds the woman of his dreams, he will know in an instant that she is the "one." And that is exactly what happened. Except...

She wasn't the one. In fact, the ravishing Miss Hermione Watson is in love with another. But her best friend, the

Reading this book was so bittersweet because I knew it was the end to the Bridgerton series, yet at the same time, I simply had to read it! I’ve been putting off the last two books, not wanting the series to come to an end, but I just had to see how things ended up for Gregory, too.

After finishing It’s In His Kiss which I adored, I had such high expectations for this book, maybe too high, because unfortunately, On the Way to the Wedding just didn’t quite live up to them.

I must be weird because I liked it more at the beginning, while Gregory was in love with Lucy's friend. I liked their easy relationship, their friendship, their openness. But I didn't feel any chemistry between them to make me long for them to become a couple. Gregory was just not hero material for me and though Lucy was grounded and straight-forward, I didn't care for her much. And I felt that it dragged a lot towards the ending. The whole 'oh, we can't be together', 'no, I'll find a way, love ...more

Ok, I am only slow at updating this because I needed to find a way to be nice about this book. But really, I shouldn't have waited because I almost forgot what this book was even about. Goes to tell you, this ain't that great.

Gregory, the last of the Bridgertons, believes in love - true love, all-consuming love, love so strong that you wouldn't even be able to breath without their reciprocation. Which makes it really crazy when he falls for Hermione, a woman who has already lost her heart to her

On the way to the wedding is about the last lone unmarried Bridgerton Gregory. I was lucky enough to literally stumble across this series when a GR friend did a review on book 6 in the series.

Gregory, the true romantic. And why shouldn’t he be. After seeing his 7 brothers and sisters all famously wed with disgustingly happy love matches – it is only to be expected that he to would expect no less. And when that happens he in convinced that is going to be a

I really liked it. It was a sweet story. Maybe I didn't buy that the hero and heroine had some grand, larger-than-life love, as the story tried to convince us of near the end, but it was heartwarming and a lovely read.

Now that I've finished the entire series, I'm going to rate the Bridgerton novels in order of how much I enjoyed them. I was going to recommend all but the final two books on my list, but I suppose The Duke and I, which I don't like, is a must-read as it's the very first Bridgert

Este livro deixou algo a desejar na maioria do tempo, apesar de ser bom voltar a ver personagens que se tornaram tão queridas para mim ao longo do tempo. Aqui, Gregory, o homem mais novo dos irmãos Bridgertons (Hyacinth é a mais nova de todos os irmãos), anda à procura do amor que todos os seus familiares conseguiram encontrar. E pensa que quando isso acontecer, vai ser como

What the hell did I just read? Besides 300+ pages of utter nonsense. Why Julia Quinn, WHY?

I wish I could say I enjoyed SOMETHING about this book, but I can’t. Even the Bridgerton family cameos offered little relief from the madness of the plot and the blehness of the main couple. Although, okay, I will admit to laughing my ass off when Gregory tied Lucy up and hid her in a water closet. Yes. That is a thing that actually happens. Don’t even get me started on how everyone fell in love with the ba

On the Way to the Wedding is the final book in Julia Quinn's Bridgertons series. Unfortunately this book did not have the same magic for me as the others in the series had. Usually the Bridgertons has some kind of quirky opening that hooks you from the first few pages. Here it had an interesting prologue but after that it's all about Gregory and his obsession with a young woman after viewing the back of her neck. Granted it sounds kind of sweet but really the further you get into the book, the m ...more
4.5 stars

I went into this book wary. Wary because Gregory is the Bridgerton brother that I knew the least about as he was hardly ever in the other books, and I had a bad experience with Francesca for the same reason (and because I just didn't like her). But, I ended up really enjoying the book. It was not without its flaws, of course, but I still liked it.

Gregory is the youngest Bridgerton male and the seventh of eight children. As I said, I did not know him very well at the start, and it didn't

Bueno, ya he finalizado esta serie (a falta de algún que otro epílogo y creo que un libro nuevo de esta saga que pronto se publicará) y me ha encantado. Este último libro ha sido el colofón final y puedo decir que uno de los mejores, le daría el primer puesto junto a la novela de Colin y el segundo puesto sería para la novela que tiene como protagonista a Eloise.

Gregory Bridgerton, um romântico incurável, sempre soube que encontrar o amor era apenas uma questão de tempo... nunca lhe passou pela cabeça foi que, quando encontrasse a mulher da sua vida, ela poderia não corresponder... Já Lucinda Abernathy, bem mais pragmática que o nosso herói, não está interessada nos disparates do amor até porque, como tantas (!) vezes nos faz saber, já está praticamentenoiva... Mas quando Hermione, amiga de Lucy, deixa Gregory com o coração destroçado ela decide dar-lhe ...more

I'm sad that I just finished the last Bridgerton book:( I tried to wait as long as I could because I just didn't want this series to end. And now it's done.......commence the tantrum.

Well, it's no secret by now that I LOVE the Bridgertons. So it comes as no surprise that I loved this one starring Gregory & Lucy. Gregory was just a child during the other books so I didn't know what kind of man he grew up to be. Not that I expected anything less than lovely, sarcastic, fun, handsome, etc., he

Opsss... I skipped Hyacinth's book... Shame on me!

For me this was the worst one... I couldn't for the love of me like neither the hero nor the heroine, even if I liked her better... but still... I dodn't enjoyed this book as much the first few of the series.

Both Gregory and Lucy were too juvenile, sometimes too stupid.

Greagory couldn't decide what he wanted, or, better, who he wanted! I hated this! First he was creazy in love with Hermione (by the way, I couldn't stop immaging her like Hermione

OH no. no more Bridgertons for me, what will I do know? I really loved this series. Each of them were unique and special for me.

This book had a slow beginning, even a bit annoying. It took me a lot to get to the good part of the book, maybe half the book. But the second part was really intense. That's why I can't give 5 stars to this book, but if it wasn't for the beginning I would definitely have because it was a terrific story.

Gregory was an ass at the beginning but then he was so sweet and ca

Ve Bridgerton'ların son kitabı... Bu seri bitti diye cidden çok üzüldüm çünkü gerçekten çok eğlenceli ve keyifli bir aileydi ve dolayısıyla çok da güzel bir seri olmuştu.

Bu kitapta tek evlenmeyen kalan kardeş Gregory'i okuyoruz. Kişiliği kitabı eğlenceli hale getirmişti hele ki Hermione, Lucy ve Gregory üçlüsünün bulunduğu sayfalar muhteşemdi. Ancak... son bölümde kahkahalar attım. Yazar dört yüz küsürlük sayfanın sanki bütün olaylarını

Gregory is hit by love and he totally embraces it. He may not have been expecting it right at that moment, but it's what he wants in his life. I loved the interaction between Gregory and Lucy as he tries to win Hermione's affections. But at the same time I wanted to shout at him-- Helloooo look beneath the surface. I feel that Ms. Quinn's focus is the love story and the relationship between the 2 main characters. Because of that I felt the circumstances behind Lucy's marriage to Lord Haselby wer ...more
I had this book on my kindle since January because I purchased the whole series around the same time. I couldn't bring myself to read it due to three reasons.

1. The quality of books in this series devolved in descending by that logic this would be the worst of the series.

2. The reviews mentioned that the romance does not begin until about 50% of the book.

3. This was the last of the Bridgerton series and I love this family because it is a mirror image of mine and I didn't want part wi

What happened? I love the Bridgerton family! They are witty, funny, sharp.... However, it seems that Quinn wanted to just hurry up and be done with the series and move on. Unlike the rest of the siblings, I found Gregory to be an undeveloped character. I didn't feel like I got to know him at all. And Lucy fell a bit flat too. When the H/h fall in love, it's not very convincing and a little hard to trust. I also found myself skimming a bit through the self-narration. I NEVER do that with Julia Qu ...more

Well shoot. This was not my favorite. I felt like I wasn't really invested in the story. I didn't have the usually, for lack of a better word, tingles with this one. Ugh...I hate myself for writing tingle. Sounds too close to the word tinkle. #bathroombreak
I'm back. I do love the Bridgertons as a whole though, so I felt like the last one of the series deserved at least three stars! It gets a nostalgia star! Like, "Dear J.Quinn-this wasn't my fav, but let's just remember all the good times we've

A pontuação justa seria 3,5 *.
Adoro a escrita de Julia Quinn, esta série é fabulosa, este foi, quanto a mim, o mais fraco de todos. No entanto gostei bastante dos personagens, Lucy é simplesmente adorável, mas uma criatura com pouca maldade.

The last little bit of this book saved it from being totally boring for me. Up till then, this story just did not capture me. It was rather dull, at least in my opinion.

Series Note:
You could possibly read this book as a standalone, but I'd recommend reading the whole series.

A man who believes in love? A man who believes in romance? A man who awaits the "one"....the one who will knock him off his feet the moment he lays eyes upon her? I didn't know such a man existed....until I met Gregory Bridgerton in Julia Quinn's final installment of the Bridgerton series.

Gregory is the youngest male in the Bridgerton clan and he is the most genuine when it comes to his feelings...a true romantic at heart. While attending a party at his eldest brother's house, Gregory is struck
Having read very very quickly through this entire eight book series I went into On the Way to the Wedding not really expecting much! A) I feel that the Bridgerton series has a fairly spotty record when it comes to Bridgerton brothers as romantic leads, and B) the immediately preceding novel starred Hyacinth, the youngest and one of the most delightful Bridgertons, and how do you follow her?!

Kitabın yaklaşık yarısına kadar Gregory ile Lucy arasındaki diyalogları okurken büyük keyif aldım.
Ama bir şeyler beni devamlı rahatsız etmeye devam etti gerçi. O da Gregory'nin Hermiona ile ilgili o 'büyük' lafları ve Lucy'i aracı olarak kullanmakta sıkıntı görmemesi.
O nedenle Hermiona için aşık oldum dedikten sonra aynı şeyi üzerinden çok geçmeden Lucy'e de söylemesi.. Bilmiyorum benim açımdan inandırıcılığı olan bir şey değildi.

“Gregory,” she said, “you cannot leave me here. What if someone finds you and removes you from the house? Who will know I am here? And what if…and what if…and then what if…”
He smiled, enjoying her officiousness too much to actually listen to her words. She was definitely herself again.
“When this is all over,” he said, “I shall bring you a sandwich.”
That stopped her short. “A sandwich? A sandwich?”
“He stepped toward her, and her heart just ached from it. His face was so handsome, and so dear, and so perfectly wonderfully familiar. She knew the slope of his cheeks, and the exact shade of his eys, brownish near the iris, melting into green at the edge.
And his mouth-she knew that mouth, the look of it, the feel of it. She knew his smile, and she knew his frown, and she knew-
she knew far to much.”
