Publisher's Summary

A sharp and hilariously relatable novel about the business of weddings, the toll they can take, and the lengths one exasperated bridesmaid will go to for the love of friends.

Lily Weiss is her mother’s worst nightmare: thirty-two and single - the horror! She’s also a talented writer but hides behind a boring job at a science foundation. To her friends, she’s reliable and selfless, which is how she winds up a bridesmaid in five weddings in six weeks. Anything for her three best friends and two (younger) siblings, right? Even if her own love life is...well, she’d rather not talk about it. To keep her sanity, Lily needs a safe place to vent.

And so her anonymous blog, Bridesmania, is born. The posts start pouring out of her: all the feels about mom-zillas, her vanishing bank balance, the wicked bridesmaids of the west, high-strung brides-to-be, body-shaming dress clerks, bachelorette parties, and Spanx for days, not to mention being deemed guardian of eighty-eight-year-old Granny (who enjoys morning mimosas in the nude) for her brother’s destination wedding.

So far the blog has stayed anonymous. But as everyone knows, few things online remain secret forever...

When all is said and done, can Lily help all five couples make it to happily ever after? And will her own happy ending be close behind?

Cute

This was a fast paced cute book. The character creation was great and the narrator did a really good job with the voices. I never read any of this author's books before but this will not be my last.

I'm glad I listened thrift the end

I have mixed feelings about this story. the premise was good, the narrator did a good job but I nearly spotted listening halfway thrift because the characters were so unlikable and immature. that being said, once the obvious drama hits and Lilly has to work her way out of it, it gets better. I'm bldg I finished it but it wouldn't be worth spending a credit.

Worth a credit!

I enjoyed this modern day story about a 32 year old female writer who is just finding her place in the world. She is a bridesmaid in five weddings all happening close to the same time. She starts a blog about her experiences as a bridesmaid, some good and some are truly ugly. The characters are well-developed where you either love or hate them. The story held my attention throughout the book. There are many laugh out loud moments and other moments where I wanted cry. The narration was outstanding. This is a good book you should try it.

Heartwarming story!

I genuinely loved this story. I enjoyed that it focused mostly on friendships between women and finding self awareness! As a romance fan, the romance in this was a nice complement to the main story and did not overshadow the main character's personal journey. The narration was good for the most part! Overall, I'm so glad I listened to this book. A lot of OMG moments while driving. So much fun!

Lovee

Saying that I love this story felt like an understatement because I superrrrrrr love it! Oh, my Lily! I adore everything about her; she's that one person who will do anything and everything for her loved ones and a super real big sister. I felt so connected to her in so many ways. I love her friends too, especially Megan and Becca; they are both fantastic and sweet. And oh my Alex! He's charming, direct to the point, and knows how to dispose of a body 🤣 also, I seriously need to get my husband to leave me notes at Starbucks too because of him. This story is very charming, funny, and so relatable, Lily’s life, her relationships with her friends and family, and the love story are so realistic, and I'm so drawn to it. Did I say I super love this story? Get yourself a copy and enjoy this book with a vanilla latte! You will love this too, I promise!
