Review on The Bridesmaids

Hey guys. I am back with another book review! I'm really loving this book club that Bichbox and Birchbloggers started, I haven't read a book in a good while. This review is going to be on The Bridesmaids True Tales of Love, Envy, Loyalty...And Terrible Dresses by Eimear Lynch.

When I first received this book I thought it was going to be a fiction novel from the view points of the bridesmaids in a wedding. This book is true stories and the author's own personal story of being a bridesmaid in a wedding. She intreviewed different women and men to get their stories and experiences with being in a wedding. I absoultely loved reading this book. I laughed, cried, gasped and all other emotions while reading this book. I would recommend this for anyone that is about to walk down the aisle or about to be in wedding party. My favorites stories from the book were from the men. It was very interesting to hear how a few men were "Bridesmen" and really took part in the whole experience. One guy was the "Man of Honor" for his sister and it was so sweet that he was planning everything, keeping her calm and just being a great brother. He took on a lot of stresses that the maid of honor would in a wedding party but he did an amazing job from what I read. There were so many interesting stories in this book and was just an overall great read.

I haven't had many bridesmaids experiences. I was only in 3 weddings in my life and all were family weddings. The last wedding I was in was 9 years ago. I have only been to 1 bachelorette party and a few dozen weddings and bridal showers. When it is my turn to make that trip down the aisle, I hope not to become a bridezilla at any point lol!

So that is it for my review on The Bridesmaids. Have you ever been a bridesmaid? What were your experiences with being in a wedding? Comment below and let me know!!


  1. This books sounds like it would be good! I have been a bridesmaid in 4 weddings...2 as a teen/adult. I had good experiences with no bridezillas however my own wedding was far more stressful/drama haha!

    1. It was a good read Tanya, I enjoyed it. I can imagine your own wedding being stressful with wanting everything to go right!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
