For obvious reasons, I have weddings on the brain right now. But they do provide good literary fodder, too, particularly for madcap comedy (it helps if you view it all as comedy, no?).
So, if you like fiction about weddings, you’ll probably like….
— Donna Andrews, Murder with Peacocks. My absolute favorite, wedding-themed novel. Sheer, absurd, over the top, madcap comedy done brilliantly.
— Jennifer Crusie, Agnes and the Hitman. Another wedding you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. But quite fun to read.
— Elizabeth Young, Asking for Trouble. The origin of the movie The Wedding Date, but please don’t blame that on the book, which is excellent British chick lit and has very little in common with the book (other than a wedding and a date).
— Kristan Higgins, Too Good To Be True. Oh, those sibling wedding woes… especially when the sibling is marrying the heroine’s ex-fiance.
— Connie Brockway, The Bridal Season. Moving from the modern to the Edwardian, hilarity– and love!– ensue when a music hall actress finds herself impersonating a high society wedding planner.
