Even wedding planners struggle to get it right…
Jason is the best wedding planner around, known as the Fairy Godfather to the couples whose special days he plans. But coming up against workplace prejudice is taking a toll on his love for his job.
His mother-in-law, Mel, has just discovered her husband has been cheating on her with a younger woman. Nearing fifty, jobless and struggling, she needs to work out who she is aside from a mum and a wife, and get her life back on track.
Meanwhile, up-tight wedding planner Harriet is struggling to find her own true love – if such a thing exists. Between liars, married men, and disaster dates, she thinks she may never find the one. And her outdated attitude toward LGBT marriages make her even more bitter.
When Jason starts Extra Weddings – helping people marry whoever they like, in whatever way they want – he, Mel and Harriet find themselves coming together to help couples make memories to last a lifetime. But can they bridge their gaps, and be a unit when others need them most?
Fans of Casey McQuiston, Lindsey Kelk and Justin Myers are invited to the most heart-warming and extravagant wedding event of 2022.
The Grooms Wore White by Charlie Lyndhurst is a heartwarming story that I really enjoyed reading. We read the points of view of three different protagonists– Jason, a wedding planner. Mel, Jason’s mother. Harriet, Jason’s colleague. This story touches on themes of staying true to yourself and having support of loved ones.
These characters were excellent. This author does a fantastic job of separating them as individuals and the story needed them to tell it. Three POVs can be difficult, but this story needed them all and it flowed very well. I enjoyed learning about each character and watching the story unfold through their eyes.
Charming, heartfelt, with excellent characters and a compelling story. I enjoyed The Grooms Wore White and look forward to reading more from this author.
