Running of the Bride
My Frenzied Quest to Tie the Knot, Tear up the Dance Floor, and Figure Out Why My 15 Minutes of Fame Included Commercial BreaksBook - 2012
When Rachel's handsome studio exec boyfriend proposes to her on the Sex and the City movie set, she can't fathom the dizzying adventure about to begin. Accepting a once-in-a-lifetime venue deal helps their budget, but it puts them on a crash course to get married in just four months--and time isn't their only challenge. They battle a wacky assortment of vendors, including a hair stylist who fakes a car accident and a makeup artist overly inspired by Marilyn Manson. This while testing their love and discovering much-needed truths about each other amid tastings and tulle. Determined to use her nervous energy productively, Rachel enters every contest she can find, winning diamond earrings, a honeymoon, a photographer, and not one but two wedding gowns. Her obsession with pop culture lands the entire wedding party on not one but two hit reality television shows. As the clock ticks down, there's just one problem: her staunch perfectionism and fear of dancing threaten to derail everything. She has to learn to redefine perfection and embrace the mistakes--or risk losing it all. In RUNNING OF THE BRIDE, Rachel fearlessly shares the hard-earned lessons she learns along the way and reveals her secrets to winning contests and attracting television producers. But for now, please take your seats. The wedding is about to begin.
