Emerson Sinclair seems very brand conscious, and thought that she would have had a wonderful time had she moved to New York, the relationship between the engaged couple felt very cozy, and I found I loved that. I wouldn't mind being able to study all the time like Emerson's sister, Milly. I found it pretty awesome that Grandma Pearl still had a life after her husband passes away. Sometimes it seemed like Honor Harper was a little bit too status conscious. The description of the shower was absolu ...more

March has definitely found her voice within the chick lit genre and with every new book you can tell she is growing stronger and stronger as a writer! Up To I Do is about many topics, like love, friendship in various forms, finding yourself and sticking to ones guns and living the life you feel you deserve. There is drama, adventure and some misadventures :). It is a great feel good story with characters that are real, flawed, but ultimately very likable! The relationship between Emerson and her ...more

What a crazy and exciting ride for "Yes I will marry you!" and up to I do!
Emerson couldn't be more in her element in planing her wedding, or so she thought! Was it really this hard to pull a wedding together and marry the man of her dreams? Yes it was!
Taking it back to the beginning, she couldn't be more excited that Milly, her sister was back in town and planned to stay put till her sister's big day takes place. Which is no small fete considering her sister's gypsy-like ways!

Emerson Sinclair was on cloud nine. Her beloved boyfriend Logan Worthington finally proposed to her (and proposed again, and again, and again). The couple never got tired reliving their moment of bliss. Until wedding preparations started. Everything that Emerson wanted to happen in her wedding, she made sure everything would take place.

But fate was playing tricks on her. Patience of wedding coordinators and dress designers were put to test, arguments ensued, differences emerged, family members

First of all, I love the cover! Knowing it’s the famous author herself and her husband on their wedding day made for a wonderful feel of the book!

As some of you might know, I was a beta-reader for “Up To I Do,” and from the beginning, I knew it would easily be one of my top picks for 2015! With all the wedding drama, twists and turns that are part of this book, each time I turned the page, it was anything but predictable (YAY!).

Emerson’s character was very strong, and it was easy to see that whi

It was going to be the wedding off the century for Emerson Sinclair & Logan Worthington...... A blissful proposal and a year to plan the wedding day, so what could possibly go wrong?
Let's put it this way, with wedding planners and family alone the joyful couple hit a lot of pot holes along the way and you will have to read this wonderful book to find out if they actually make it up the aisle or not!!!
As always Samantha March never disappoints with her books and this is

Emerson is an extremely unlikable main character. It definitely hindered my enjoyment and took me forever to finish this book. Although there definitely was character development through the story, all was not redeemed for me.
I still enjoyed this book because I like Samantha March's writing and I understand that Emerson is unlikable on purpose.

An easy read, but I couldn't relate to the characters. They felt very one-dimensional and more focused on brands and status. I liked Emerson, but she seemed to be very influenced by what others think of her instead of following her heart - I was pleased at her stand on the dress. The storyline had good promise but it was only in the last few pages that it really delivered.

First of all I want to state, that I don't usually read chick-lit, but I love Samantha's YT videos and I love books. I read "Defining Her" before I read this book and really enjoyed, so picked this book up because I was in the mood for something easy and fun. But this book turned out to be too shallow for my taste. The characters are not well-developed, the drama is forced and "resolved" within the next few lines. I'll stick to Samantha's newer releases, comparing this book to "Defining Her" I c ...more

After saying ‘yes’ to Logan Worthington’s marriage proposal, Emerson Sinclair spends a year planning the wedding of her dreams. With endless funds at her disposal, she can have the best of everything. But can money buy her happiness?

What begins as a fun and exciting adventure soon turns into a stressful and overwhelming experience for Emerson. She has several ‘bridezilla’ moments; over her dress, about more than one of the

Originally reviewed at Novel Escapes

I had some troubles with Emerson- sometimes I wanted to shake her silly and ask her whether she really thought she wasn’t a bride-zilla? Perhaps the frustration was really in that she had hired a wedding planner who seemed to be absent entirely from the plot of the novel- in theory I think a wedding planner should be taking care of the organisation of the wedding and making sure you’re not feeling overwhelmed but it seemed that this wedding planner was only th

Review originally posted on my blog

One of the main themes in this novel is the idea that you shouldn’t let what others think dictate how you live your life. If you want something, you should go for it, regardless of what others might think. Emerson begins to feel completely overwhelmed at the prospect of creating the perfect wedding, but it takes her a while to realize that everyone has different ideas of what a perfect wedding looks like.

On top of the stress of plannin

This was a well written piece of chick lit. It was enjoyable and a very easy to follow story. It's all about Emerson Sinclair's engagement to Logan Worthington and the planning of the Sinclair-Worthington wedding. They are both families that come from money, so can afford anything their hearts desire, and its the sort of wedding that everyone wants to be invited to.

However I didn't really take to Emerson at all. Yes she was a bit of a bride-zilla but that is to be expected but she just didn't s

Being a friend of Samantha March (an online friend, as we've never met in person!) I couldn't wait to see what she would come up with after A Questionable Friendship which I thought was a great chick-lit novel. It had some crazy twists and turns so if you have a chance check it out!

I wasn't disappointed with Up To I Do. Emerson Sinclair is a wealthy heiress who needs to have a crazy, out of this world wedding. She has the funds, but her family and friends are making it hard to have the wedding

Calling all Chick Lit Lovers!! This is the perfect book for you!! Bridezilla at its finest! Pretty names and prettier people! Fashion, Fun, Fights…this book has it all. A true women’s story!
It is hard not to enjoy this romp through a year of planning the most elaborate wedding that this small New Hampshire town has ever seen. The Van Guilder/Sinclair/Worthington wedding has to be big, and it has to be picture perfect. One good enough to be on television!

The question has been asked. The bride to be has said yes, now what? Emerson is so excited that she is getting married. She wants the wedding to be spectacular and over the top. There is a problem, though . Emerson finds herself on the edge as she tries to plan the perfect wedding. Don't we all know there is no such thing as a perfect wedding? Someone needs to clue Emerson in on that.

Everyone has probably heard the term, "Bridezilla", but someone needs to clue Emerson in . At times her character

A fun chick lit novel about the build up to the event of the decade, I mean the wedding. This novel deals with the relationships between the women in a family that comes from old money, rather than the romance. Emerson is already madly in love with Logan, and he with her. I felt they were well suited and destined for a happily ever after, so long as Emerson could keep her inner bridezilla at bay. This battle seemed even harder due to Emerson's spoilt rich girl attitude. The expectations put on " ...more

I really enjoyed reading 'Up To I Do'. A fun, modern day look at planning a wedding through the eyes of a prominent/wealthy bride-to-be. Emerson Sinclair might have more pressures than the average woman when it comes to planning her nuptials, but along the way she starts to wonder if it's really worth it. Has she lost what's important - marrying the man she loves? It's easy to get caught up in wedding planning details, and Emerson tries her best not to become bridezilla. Emerson was an "every wo ...more

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Thought this was going to be about a love story between Logan and Emerson. But , sadly, it was not. It was about planning a wedding scheduled a year away. The bride-to-be is a spoiled, shallow, selfish, ultra wealthy, snobbish rich girl. Emerson demands to be the center of attention every month before the wedding. Great things occurs in her mother's and sister's life but she freaks out because it interferes with her plans. She freaks when she

Up To I Do was a fun, flirty romance about the perils of a big wedding that involves trying to keep everyone in the family happy. Emerson Sinclair is a wealthy heiress who wants the wedding of her dreams and has the funds to pull it off. From wedding coordinators to dress designers everybody had a job to do, including getting the nuptials on TV. But when her family started falling away from the grand plan of the wedding of the century, Emerson began to come apart at the seams. I loved the relati ...more

Emerson is endearing and you celebrate and empathize with her as we ride the merry-go-round of planning her wedding. Great cast of characters from a loving family to fabulous friends and even undesirable acquaintances. Her predicaments are plausible and her feelings and attitude warranted. A typical bride wanting a flawless and meaningful day. Love those important to her, especially Grams, and mom managing to reel her in reminding her of what the true significance of a wedding means, the depth o ...more

Love this book

Love this story about planning an outrageous wedding in the wealthy world. Many of the things that Emerson goes through is normal for planning an extravagant wedding but her and her husband are high society. They are going to be filmed and have to have things up to high expectations. The planning along with her job is making her crazy. The bridesmaids help her at points but then at points make her go crazy. Logan's brother Jacob is also a challenge at points. Their families are won

A fun and entertaining book. A great read for brides to be. The book is full of fun and cool wedding ideas, which made me nostalgic for my bride-to-be days. It also serves as a cautionary tale about remembering WHY you’re getting married. Oh trust me, the wedding details fade FAST. There were moments when Emerson, the bride-to-be, drove me a bit crazy – but I know, I too had my bridezilla moments (Barbara, are you reading this?). Finally, as a New Englander who grew up in the hotel business, I l ...more

I really enjoyed this book! It was easy to read. I liked the characters and especially the bride Emerson. The conflicts and her journey to the alter was a fun ride to be on. I also liked the family and friend dynamics which were part of the journey. I highly recommend this book!
