Books!

24. Intimate Weddings by Christina Friedrichsen
I have not read many wedding planning books, because they are all about the kind of wedding I am not having. I have leafed through a few though, and this is the only one I thought was any use. The author is really good at stressing how you should think of the kind of wedding you want, the budget you have and then work with that. She doesn't ever talk about needing things like flowers or bridesmaids. So if you are thinking of having a small, slightly non traditional wedding, I recommend this book.

25. The Seven Sisters by Margaret Drabble
I have read quite a few books by Drabble, who is the sister of AS Byatt. I always enjoy the books, but find them very cold in a way. I rarely connect with the characters, but am interested in seeing what happens to them. This book is about a woman who moves to London after her divorce, although that is just a small part of the story. I enjoyed it more than many of Drabble's other books, but it didn't make a huge impression.

Bridesmaids are not essential, but having a garter toss is. Because we all want to see Laurie's legs!
