Review of The One With The Wedding Dress (Bridesmaids 2) by Erin Lawless

The bit on the back...

Nora Dervan is ready for her Happy Ever After. With her darling Harry waiting at the altar, and all her family and friends around her. She is certain that her special day will not be forgotten/will be one to remember…

But with her four bridesmaids hiding more secrets, than bottles of champagne. Will her big day be remembered for all the right reasons?

Bea has barely gotten past the fact that her two best friends are dating, and now they’re engaged, whilst cupid’s arrow points in a forbidden direction for Cleo. She is so distracted by her off limits, hot new colleague that she has forgotten Daisy, who has been left dreading the singles table. There’s more romance in the cheesy pick- up lines than Sarah’s own marriage, which hasn’t turned out as she hoped it would be.

Firstly thank you to Harper Impulse for the review copy of this title via NetGalley. This is the second part in Erin's Bridesmaids series and is all about Nora's search for the perfect wedding dress.

We join the girls as they head off to the countryside in search of the wedding dress of Nora's dreams. Tensions are running high as disagreements and disapproval flow between Nora and her mum. Throw highly strung designers and a group of bridesmaids who all have their own discontent into the mix and the weekend away is shaping up to be explosive.

While the finding the dress is the main event in this part of the series there is a lot of focus on Bea, her relationship with Nora and her feelings towards the marriage and fellow bridesmaid Cleo. Bea has a big old chip on her shoulder as she's still not completely on board with her best friends being together. She's insecure about her friendship with Nora which stems back to Nora going off to university. Although Nora deals with some of those insecurities reassuringly the one thing that Bea can't help but feel is like she's being left behind.

There is a flashback scene at the end of this part which left me with a cliffhanger I didn't see coming at all! I cannot wait to read on to find out what's going to happen next!
