I received a copy of this book on NetGalley in exchange for my review.

I honestly loved this book!
I especially loved the anecdotes at the beginning of each chapter. I really liked the chemistry between all the characters and I appreciate the kind of relationships they had with each other. It was very real. I found the book to be a little slow, but I loved everything else. I can't believe I hadn't come across this book before. This book is perfect for a bit of lighthearted fun in the evening.

This is the perfect pick-me-up, I spent so much of the first bit of the book laughing at various aspects of wedding planning, and then as the story progressed I found myself really involved with all four bridesmaids lives, as the big wedding approaches.

For this book is far more about Bea, Cleo, Daisy and Sarah and their lives, than about Nora, the bride, so we really get to see things from many perspectives, and there are multiples romances to hope for, or to deal with difficulties with.

Taking place over the year from engagement party to wedding day, this is ostensibly Nora and Harry’s story, but becomes so much more as friends (the bridesmaids and groomsmen) and festivities never end. Additionally, in a supremely clever twist, Lawless inserts anecdotes from actual couples in introductions to several chapters: providing a ‘this happened” moment that adds to the story.

Truly, almost from the first, the story becomes more about Nora and her relationships with her bridesmaids (Bea

The thing that attracted me to this book was of course that stunning cover that I absolutely adored. The colours and everything is just perfect for the story itself and also very eyecatching.

After waiting for this story to be released as a full book I was delighted as it was definately worth the wait having all the parts together as I could not put this down.

The One with All the Bridesmaids is full of humour with lots of parts that just leave you laughing out loud and I found I read this with a

Oh my god, I’ve just realised that I have never read an Erin Lawless book before! I know I have purchased a few of her previous novels, but unfortunately they’ve been sitting on my TBR for far too long, shamefully! After reading Erin Lawless’ new release, I now have the urge to buy every single book of hers and binge read them.

I don’t usually read the tag lines on blurbs before I read a novel because I sometimes think t
I received a free digital copy of this book from the publishers/author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

When Nora gets engaged to her childhood friend turned love of her life, it’s only natural that she gets some of her best friends together to be her bridesmaid. The only problem is, while all the girls love Nora, they don’t always get on with each other. This book follows the bridal group from engagement to wedding day and involves a lot of wedding dress shopping strops, secrets r

This is a wrap up of 4 short stories on these characters. I'm at that age where weddings are the thing. I have 3 this year and 2 hen dos, so this book is perfect for my life right now.

What's not to love about a book detailing friendships, wedding planning and fraught hen party activities. It's great to lose yourself in the whirl of organisation and the wedding itself with love in the air. The bridesmaids all have their share of life's dramas going on you really feel a part of it- down to planning the outfit you want to wear!!!!!!!
Erin has such a lovely writing style that you find yourself totally immersed and turning the pages enjoying being a part of the celebrations.

A fun lighthearted novel about bridesmaids preparing for their friend's wedding. Some drama but the craziness is presented in a fun way that shows what it takes to plan a wedding from proposal to wedding and all the fun and craziness in-between.

Erin Lawless has  the knack of capturing life events in a humorous and sensitive way that makes everything you read believable and so easy to visualise and empathise with.

The One With All The Bridesmaids is the complete story of Nora and Harry's wedding year, from Engagement party to Wedding day.  However it's the Bridesmaids, Cleo, Bea, Daisy and Sarah and their lives  who are the stars of this story. Their friendship with Nora and each other makes this an absorbing fun read and its easy to ide

I really do not know where to start with this book apart from the fact that I loved it!

Last week I was getting ready to go on my best friend's hen party and couldn't decide which book to start reading in our downtime, until I saw this little gem. I have recommended this to the whole hen party. It is such a fun, feel good, entertaining read especially as real life and the book at times crossed over!

Thank you to Netgalley, the author and the Publishers, Harper Impulse for this review copy given in exchange for an honest review.

This book has also been released into the four separate parts – The One with the Engagement Party, Wedding Dress, Hen Weekend and The White Wedding. This book is all four parts in one book. I have previously read the first two parts, but then was given the opportunity to read the book as a whole, so started back at the beginning!

This is absolutely perfect for the summer wedding season .. Erin Lawless captures the whole shebang, who knew there was so much to arranging a wedding! The One With All The Bridesmaids follows the journey of the marriage between Nora and Harry.

It’s almost like a girls v boys story .. the hens are all super duper involved and take it SO seriously and the boy partners tend to tag along and do as they are told lol.

There is a small group who have been friends since school days so the feelings run de

Thank you to NetGalley, HarperColliins UK and the author Erin for allowing me too read this book in exchange for an honest review!

First things first, I love this book. To give this a bit of context; I have been a bridesmaid four times and a bride once so I think I am fairly qualified to say that this book really does hit the nail on the head when it comes to all things wedding!

This book evoked lovely memories for me of buying my wedding dress, going on my hen weekend, my actual wedding day but

Erin Lawless has a fresh and unique writing style that makes me so quickly absorbed in the storyline of her books. The One with.. is such a fun, witty and appealing story that has a touch of phenomenal Friends series vibe.
I loved following the group of girls ( Nora, Bee, Daisy, Cleo and Sarah) as well as boys on their journey leading up to Nora's wedding. It definitely wasn't a smooth ride! There are secrets, drunken faux pas, wild nights, jealousy but also wonderful friendships and most of all

I’ve seen positive things said about Erin Lawless’ books so often that I just had to try one for myself! ‘The One With All the Bridesmaids’ is a warm, witty, enthralling story that grabbed me in the first couple of pages, and I was really sad when I reached the end. During the preparations for Nora’s wedding, the focus is on her four bridesmaids - Cleo, Daisy, Sarah, and Bea - as they all have secrets which gradually come out one by one.

This was a lovely read and perfectly captured the fun and headaches that can be all part of planning a wedding. Having been a bridesmaid and a bride it was lots of fun to read this book and I definitely found it amusing how the girls were all taking it more seriously than the boys were. A stereotype maybe but a pretty spot on one.

This is a great summer read and I enjoyed it a lot.

A funny and light-hearted novel about a group of bridesmaids preparing for a friend's wedding. I enjoyed some of the romantic arcs and especially the real life funny anecdotes about weddings. I'd recommend this book if you feel like a light wedding-based read, perfect for a summer holiday.

A wonderful story of friendship, bridesmaidzillas, finding love, getting married.

The story, as the title says, is about the bridesmaids. About their relationship to each other and also about their relationships.

Too confusing, too many characters, terrible. Tried but I stopped reading with no regrets. No wedding is worth putting up with this group.

I really enjoy this author's writing, it's highly readable, but unfortunately this time the story and characters weren't my cup of tea. I look forward to something different in the future.

Erin Lawless would probably love to be your Goodreads friend.

Although she's predominantly on here with her reader hat on, she's published a book of short stories and flash fiction - The Last Train Home & Other Stories - and two bestselling British contemporary romances for HarperCollins' award-winning romance imprint Harper Impulse, The Best Thing I Never Had and Somewhere Only We Know .
