Although summer is winding down, wedding season will be in full swing through the fall. If you’re looking for a fun little gift for an engaged friend, or you just love to read about weddings, check out these two new releases.
“The Wedding Writer” by Susan Schneider
If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a bridal magazine, you’ll love this story about a seasoned editor-in-chief who gets fired in favor of a young wedding writer. As you can guess, it’s not all Vera Wang and brooch bouquets for the ladies at the fictional Your Wedding magazine. Schneider, a former Modern Bride and Elegant Bride editor, is the perfect person to tell the tale of this group of New Yorkers trying to get ahead in the office and in love.
“Girls in White Dresses” by Jennifer Close
Named as one of Amazon’s August books of the month, this relatable debut novel follows a group of friends from their college graduation into their early 30s. Through being a bridesmaid a million times, going on bad dates and navigating their new careers, they try to make their way in the scary and often confusing post-college world, often with laugh-out-loud results.
