I love the quotes above the chapters of The Girls Guide to getting Hitched, my favorite is, ‘Marriage is not a word but a sentence,’ and the quote by Cher is hilarious.
Sophie Hart has got the stresses and strains of weddings down to a fine art. Anyone who has had a wedding day will have gone through some of things she has written about. My own personal story has something in common with Aimee’s mother-in-law to be Valerie. I shuddered continuously whilst reading.
This is a funny, ad uplifting tale in parts, but it will also have you teary. Well what’s a wedding without tears.
The relationships between all the women is one of solidarity and they are all hopeful that their futures will be fabulous.
I loved this book, it is a perfect holiday read and if you are getting married.. read it afterwards.
