👰Book Tour Stop💐
For The Love of Friends
Pub Date 8/1/21
Oh man the anxiety of being in a wedding multiplied by 5!! No wonder our main bridesmaid Lily started a blog to vent and possibly make some side money to pay everything.
Q: Have you ever been in a wedding?
If not, it’s expensive to be in the wedding party, between dresses/suits, stag weekends, parties, outfits, being available, hair, makeup, nails, shoes , hotels…. The list goes on.
I mean the guest has some if this but there’s more pressure on the wedding party.
Lily is feeling the pressure from two of the weddings and the others are ok but have a few odd ball moments. In the end everything blows up in her face and they find out she’s been venting but I hate that it’s all Lily’s fault. Like I get it’s their day but they were raging B’s like the whole time. And people can’t guess things or know to keep including you even when they tried. It’s not fair to get so mad at someone who doesn’t know intimidate details you never told them.
This ended super cute, after a lot of anxiety and turmoil of the fallout. But you know weddings are funny things. Some ppl see them as huge parties (me) or social standings or me moments (bridezillas).
👰I was lucky I didn’t have my mom, sister, sister in law or mother in law say or do anything to influence my decisions. I think I may be a more quiet intimidating Lily type idk. I had no idea what I was doing while planning lol. My mom only wanted me to do the reveal of bride groom at the wedding and not before which I wanted to get the pictures out of way but since she didn’t say a word throughout and ending up buying me two wedding dresses cause I bought a $100 dress from China (it was supposed to replicate a Casablanca dress I didn’t want to ask for) that wasn’t what I expected, I did it.

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?
