Lately I've been reading a lot of heavily-themed stories so to lighten up the mood, I immediately pick up the next chicklit on my To-be-reads. And I found the perfect medicine to my dramatic woes. The Wedding Haters. And believe me, soon-to-be married girls, you might just be spending the next hours second-thinking about your entourage after reading this book. Beware of the wedding haters!

Madison (Madie) is happily engaged to Cole, a professional comedian and the light of her life. She's got gre

Did I enjoy this book: I really did. It was a fun read that anyone who has planned a wedding will find humorous! If you are currently planning your wedding, I would save it for your honeymoon! ;-)

We join Madison and Cole as they plan their wedding with the help of Sienna. We pick up shortly after An Event to Remember . . . Or Forget leaves off. (You can see my review here.) Madison has an idea for her perfect day in mind, but as with most weddings, things don’t go exactly as she hoped. Her grand

I was given a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion, and it was an enjoyable read. Although this is the second novel in the Event to Remember series, and I've never read the first book, it didn't affect my rate for Wedding Haters. Melissa Baldwin does an amazing job painting the picture of what life is like for Madison Wales. She's a hairdresser, her fiancé is a comedian, and her best friend is an amazing wedding planner. So what could go wrong with planning her wedding, right? Wr ...more

Wedding Haters is an entertaining chick lit / romantic comedy wedding themed story that will keep you in stitches!

In Wedding Haters, the second book of the Event To Remember series, author Melissa Baldwin weaves a sassy tale that follows the wedding planning trials and tribulations of bride Madison Wales. Told in the first person narrative, the reader follows Madison and her best friend and wedding planner Sienna Harris as Madison's perfect bridal plans are sabotaged by her meddling Grandmother

I read "Wedding Haters" without having read the first book in the 'Event to Remember' series. It's definitely easy to catch-up with this second novel.
"Wedding Haters" features Madison "Madie" Wales as she's nearing the end of her wedding planning for her marriage to Cole. But soon, meddling relatives come a running and Madie is forced to include her estranged cousins, Ellie and Stephy, in the wedding party. Madie can't help but feel pressured and as wedding plans go awry, she has to wonder if h

Wedding Haters by Melissa Baldwin was a fun book to read. It was a nice break from the past couple of books that I have read because they were more heavy so this was a great book to squeeze in. I had a whole range of emotions while I was reading this book and I would lie if I said I didn’t enjoy it. There is something to be said for books that keep things light and easy to read. This is the first book I have read by this author and I have truly enjoyed her writing and this book. There were parts ...more

OMG its such a jolly story. I breezed through it in a couple of hours. Exactly like a fun filled easy on the eyes romcom with you favourite actors. The drama especially one with wedding as its central theme is always fun. The situations had the right amount of drama, witches and humour. I absolutely enjoyed this wedding - its lovers and haters were great and made for a smiley giggly read. Pick it up and gain a tip or two if you getting married in the near future.

Oh my gosh - another stupid freebie. I skimmed so much. There was just so much I didn't give a rat's rear about. I love an easy read from time to time, but this was just agonizing with the stupid details.

The main character is more concerned with the,drama of her cousins than her own wedding. I grew very tired of the constant created drama.

Wedding Haters is the second book in the Event to Remember series. It picks up just a little while after book one ends. This story is told from Sienna's best friend Madison's point of view. It's about Madie's wedding and the events leading up to it, which is planned by Sienna and her company Sheer Happiness Events. Again, there is a rollercoaster of emotion and circumstance as Sienna, Madison, and Abby navigate their families, wedding planning, and big life changes. Nothing seems to go exactly a ...more

Having just finished a mystery with plenty of twists & turns, I was ready for something light. This was the book I picked. Madie is getting married to Cole and their wedding is anything but simple. Plenty of drama and comedic moments from every corner. It's a wonder that these two walk down the aisle instead of running off to elope because everything that could possibly go wrong, does. I'm happy to see Madie putting her foot down and clearing the air but wonder why it took so long for her to ...more

Madison just wants the perfect wedding and her fiance is fine with eloping since planning the wedding is stressing her out. Once her two cousins get involved with her wedding everything starts falling apart. Her friends try salvaging some part of the wedding she wanted. Crazy hijinks happen and the fun begins. I voluntarily reviewed this book.

This was a free download from BookBub. It was rough (grammar errors!), but free is free. It was a sweet story, but extremely predictable. A quick read, and who can turn down a free book? Not this girl!

Another entertaining read from this author. Clean, funny, it still took me a while to figure out who dunnit. That’s a good thing in my book.

Entertaining read

Entertaining story but not well written. Repetitive language makes it difficult to read at times. As the author matures it will be interesting to read her books.

This book was good, but I was getting tired of all the drama for just one wedding. The reveal of the person causing all the trouble was a surprise.

*I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.*

Madison is engaged to the perfect guy, and is in the midst of planning her wedding. Everything is going great until the day her cousins insist on being included. The girls were all pretty much raised together and it was often the two cousins against Madie (also, I never knew quite how to pronounce her name. Usually Madison is shortened to Maddie, so that was a minor annoyance to me), so she is somewhat apprehensive about letti

This is the second book in the Event To Remember series. I really enjoyed the first book so couldnt wait to get started on the second one.

Things seem to be going great until Madison's evil cousins, Ellie and Stephy insist on being bridesmaids. With a meddling Grandmother insisting the cousin's should be included as they were al

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and I couldn't wait to start this one.

I love that this book is told by Madison, Sienna's best friend. You get a new perspective on Sienna and the other characters you met in book one.

Madison is busy planning her wedding, preparing for life as a newlywed, and juggling some family craziness. There are some twists in this story that are entertaining.

Another charming and light chick lit read.

Dec 29, 2016 rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
A good easy read, full of laughs and wedding planning chaos. If you are soon to be wed or soon to be in a wedding this book will be a great read for you and an excellent way to pass some time. Madison and Cole are planning their wedding when as with any wedding a family member butts in and next thing you know chaos ensues. Two evil cousins out to ruin the wedding and one good friend trying to save it, who will win out? Honestly grab a copy of this book, it is worth your while.

Fun, light read! I very much enjoyed this book, it's good to take a break from heavier reading and enjoy a little romantic fun. I liked this book as it didn't follow the typical romantic formula, but rather added a light mystery to the plot.

I received this book free in return for my honest review.

It was fine for a free Kindle book. A fast brainless read. I would read more of her books if they were offered free. A few typos, not all believable, but a light clean read for someone looking for something for the airplane or the beach.
