A fun chicklit read for anyone who is getting married or just loves everything weddings Absolutely fabulous There were tears Some nice, light, vacation reading. It s been a while since I ve read a Chrissie Manby book In fact, the last time I picked up a Chrissie Manby book was when she was known as Chris Manby I don t understand why I haven t because she was the first adult book I read Lizzie Jordan s Secret Life I still remember the story vividly and racing through it when I should have been doing my Macbeth G.C.S.E essay Then I got swept up in the royal wedding fever and snapped up Kate s Wedding when it came out, and I m glad I did The book i It s been a while since I ve read a Chrissie Manby book In fact, the last time I picked up a Chrissie Manby book was when she was known as Chris Manby I don t understand why I haven t because she was the first adult book I read Lizzie Jordan s Secret Life I still remember the story vividly and racing through it when I should have been doing my Macbeth G.C.S.E essay Then I got swept up in the royal wedding fever and snapped up Kate s Wedding when it came out, and I m glad I did The book is largely told from Kate s point of view, with some from Diana, and the odd chapter told from Melanie s, the wedding dress shop owner, view The story starts from when Kate and Diana get engaged, with them crossing paths from time to time Kate wants a small, simple affair and Diana wants her version of the royal wedding, and by God will she get it Kate was lovely She just wants to be married without all the trappings of a wedding I completely related to her in that sense Even when she was ready for bouncing Ian, her fianc , down the aisle for some of his questionable behaviour, I related to that too But what got on my nerves in those situations, and it has done in other novels too, is when couples don t talk They just assume the other should know what they want It really rubs me up the wrong way and I will never relate or understand it That was a pet hate for me in this story Then you had Diana, a complete and utter Bridezilla I ve never really met someone who was a Bridezilla, but I could completely imagine them to be like Diana With no original thought of her own and constantly looking to Kate Middleton and the royal wedding, she wanted everything her way I loved to hate Diana and the wrath she inflicted on her fianc , Ben I didn t have any sympathy for him though He had no backbone and brought it on himself They were both written so well, that I wished there had beenof Diana and her spoilt tantrums, with Ben wondering how muchhe could take There were some very funny moments and sweet moments, and this has made me want to pick up someChrissie Manby novels as I ve quite clearly been missing out since my last venture into her books I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves chicklit Kate Williamson never thought the day would come when she would get married, so when her boyfriend Ian proposes at the top of the Eiffel Tower, she s thrilled As she sets about planning her wedding, family troubles mean that Kate s up to her eyeballs with everything and as her

Ashford, born on the day Princess Di wed Charles, is desperate for her very own fairytale wedding Now that she s found her prince Ben, she s in full Bridezilla mode, made worse by the fact that her parents indulge her every whim Set against the backdrop of the other couple getting married, will Kate and Diana make it up the aisle or will it all descend into a right Royal farce I m a big, big fan of Chrissie Manby, and she s an author whose books I look forward to year after year What I Did On My Holidays was meant to be her 2011 novel but after the announcement that Prince William was marrying Kate Middleton, Chrissie was struck by inspiration and wrote Kate s Wedding in a month I was looking forward to reading it, knowing there d be an influx of Royal wedding related novels knowing if anyone could put her own spin on it, it would be Chrissie But I was also apprehensive, how good can a book be when it s put together in a matter of months when the whole process usually takes a year I dived into the book nevertheless and I wasn t disappointed at all.You would think that a book called Kate s Wedding, that focuses on two weddings taking place in April 2011 might be a bit of a let down or a rip off, and some people might expect the book to just be a homage to William and Kate, but thankfully that s not the case at all Yes, the two female main characters are called Kate and Diana and yes Kate and Wills wedding does feature prominently, but that s not the be all and end all of the book It just provides an enjoyable backdrop to the book, and I liked how Diana was determined to out do Wills and Kate, from the engagement ring to the engagement photos I found it hugely amusing, in fact Kate the fictional one isn t as hopped up on weddings as Diana is, as her focus is mainly focused on her ill mum, rather than having the wedding of the year.Both girls are also experiencing troubles with their grooms to be Ben, Diana s fiance, isn t as excited about the wedding as she is, and the same can be said for Ian, Kate s fiance See Chrissie resisted the urge to have Kate marry a Will and Diana marry a Charles despite how fantastic I would have found it The third person the book focuses on is Melanie, who owns the wedding dress shop Bride on Time where both Diana and Kate get their dresses from She got married on the day Di and Charles got married, and has always felt a kinship with Princess Di I thought Melanie s story was very interesting, and it certainly helped to break up Kate s worry about her mum and Diana s full on Bridezilla mode I thought the entire book was fascinating and I was rushing through the pages as quickly as I could, which surprised me.Of our three main characters, it was Kate whom I immediately warmed to She was such a lovely character, and very much helped to offset the crazy that was Diana To have two such contrasting personalities was fascinating and I definitely preferred Kate Mainly because, with the greatest of respect, Diana was a total cow She acted as if the World should revolve around her and her alone, she treated everybody around her as if they were her minions and the way she wanted to replicate Wills and Kate in every way drove me up the wall I truly wanted to smack her, I m not kidding I seriously disliked her Yet, for some reason, I did actually love her chapters because the drama and full on Bridezilla amused me no end and I was dying to know what she d think of next to subject Ben to Much like Kate, Melanie was a lovely character and I loved how dedicated she was to her job The men in the book didn t necessarily capture me I thought Ian was a bit lazy, but I did like Ben, despite what he did to be perfectly honest, I could understand having to live with bloomin Diana.Kate s Wedding is very much a tongue in cheek novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it I finished it in 4 hours and I got fully immersed in the story Despite how nuts I thought Diana was, she was also hugely entertaining, and Kate s family troubles added some much needed normalcy to the novel It s a book that doesn t necessarily take itself seriously and it s one Manby fans will devour The book switches perspective regularly and is written in third person allowing us to get everyone s point of views on their respective nuptials It was the perfect way to spend my morning afternoon and I devoured each and every page Some readers may not be pleased with the fact it s a novel that s basically riding the coat tails of the Royal Wedding but I liked the backdrop it provided, and I lapped up all the Royal stories and connections Manby is on tip top form here, the ending in particular was quite hilarious and is definitely a book Manby fans and Royal Wedding fans will absolutely lap up I did Probably not my favourite book by Chrissie Manby, but it was a really easy, fun and cute read Even if some of the characters where portrayed as completely over the top stereotypes.
