Somebody Is Going to Die if Lilly Beth Doesn’t Catch That Bouquet: The Official Southern Ladies’ Guide to Hosting the Perfect Wedding by Gayden Metcalfe
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a decent little book. There were a few spots that had me laughing out loud (like the woman who didn’t want to sit near a little boy in a tuxedo because she didn’t want a homunculus sitting in her lap) and many, many more that had me smiling.
While this book highlighted the fact that North Carolina (the only place I’ve lived in The South) is much, much different from the Delta, it did explain a couple of things I considered odd at a couple of the weddings I’d attended there. And I’m notorious for leaving early when I’m a wedding guest, which, according to this book, makes me quite rude. I did, however, send out my thank-you cards within just a few months of my own wedding, so at least I got the most important wedding-related thing right.
I do regret having to return the book to the library before I had a chance to try some of the recipes on my family.
