Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books for Readers Who Like Weddings!

'Top Ten Tuesday' is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. I love making lists, so this feature fits me perfectly! If you also take part in this feature or have any additions to my lists, please get in touch; I'd love to hear from you!
 
 
10 Books for Readers Who Like Weddings

Time for a new Top Ten Tuesday list! This week's assignment wasn't a very specific one: 10 books for readers who like... I spent a bit of time coming up with various topics because there are so many different top tens I could come up with, focusing on different subjects. However, today I decided to go with one of my own favourite kind of novels: books about weddings! I love films, TV shows and novels about weddings and wedding planners, and I can't ever get enough of them. So, if you're a sucker for a lovely wedding, just like me, be sure to check out the books below! :)  



1. 'Don't Tell the Groom' - Anna Bell


I recently read all three parts of Anna Bell's 'Don't Tell...' series and if you're a fan of weddings, you really need to pick up these novels. Main protagonist Penny is busy planning her first wedding in the first book, 'Don't Tell the Groom', and even more weddings are focused on in the other parts... Such lovely books!




2. 'A Groom with a View' - Sophie Ranald



Another great chick lit read which focuses on a bride who decides to plan her own wedding. Sophie Ranald writes really entertaining and fun stories, and this is definitely a great read!




3. 'The Marrying Type' - Laura Chapman



I'm actually reading this book at the moment and I'm really enjoying it. The cover is simply stunning, and the book is great fun. Another read perfect for wedding fans!



4. Julia Williams - 'The Bridesmaid Pact'



Of course there are also some fabulous bridesmaid reads out there, like Julia Williams' 'The Bridesmaid Pact.' 



5. Kat French - 'Undertaking Love'



I got the chance to read and review 'Undertaking Love' last year and I loved it! Marla has her own wedding chapel and she's facing a few challenges when handsome Gabriel opens a funeral parlour next door... A really original and thoroughly enjoyable read!



6. Fiona Valpy - 'The French for Always'



This book tells the story of Sara who decides to leave England together with her fiance Gavin to transform a French chateau into a boutique wedding venue. When Gavin unexpectedly leaves her, Sara has to get through the summer alone, organising five big weddings. I love Fiona Valpy's writing style and this is a great read with a lot of lovely weddings in it!





7. 'The Wedding Planner' - Melanie La'Brooy



It's been quite some time since I read this novel, but it's a story that has stayed with me. Mimi is asked to be the bridesmaid and unofficial wedding planner for her big sister Sabrina; a delightful novel! 




8. 'The Wedding Party' - Sophie King



Sophie King is another women's fiction author whose novels never disappoint me. 'The Wedding Party' is no different; a lovely novel about... you guessed it, a wedding!




9. 'The Wedding Girl' - Madeleine Wickham



Madeleine Wickham is actually Sophie Kinsella, whom we all know from the highly successful 'Shopaholic' series. Her novels are always great reads and this wedding-themed one is as well!




10. 'Always the Bridesmaid - Whitney Lyles

 
This book is a bit like the romantic comedy '27 Dresses' starring Katherine Heigl, a film which I loved. I also really enjoyed this book which tells the story of a girl who continues to be the bridesmaid instead of the bride.
 
If you know any more wedding-themed novels, be sure to share them! :)
