nice long enough to plan their children’s dream wedding. From the beginning, they clash. Melanie imagines a classy, elegant event, in keeping with tradition. Teeny’s vision is a bit more extravagant, and thanks to her habit of marrying well, she’s got the cash to plan the flashiest wedding of the season.
Complicating matters are the men in their lives: Tennyson is falling for the wrong guy, and Melanie is trying to hold on to a flailing marriage. Amid the flurry of cake tastings, dress fittings, seating charts, and bridal showers, Mel and Teeny confront their past mistakes—with twenty years of pent-up drama.
When the day of the wedding finally arrives, their friendship might just be something old and something new.

My Rating: 5 stars
Genre Women’s Fiction
Review Snapshot : The Wedding War was an unexpected surprise for me! I wasn’t sure if I would love a book about two (nearly) middle aged women who despise each other help their children plan a wedding (while also fighting each other at every chance they got) but this book was so much more than that! I ended up LOVING it!
The Wedding War is NOT a romance novel. I think readers should be warned of this before going in because if your expecting romance you certainly won’t get that. Thankfully, I love a good women’s fiction novel. Haven’t read one in a long time but after reading this one I remember why I loved the genre in the first place. Anyway, this book is purely women’s fiction. It’s about best friends turned enemies and how their relationship and fallout played a role in what they became in their future. Talley subtly makes this clear throughout the novel and readers are able to see just why their lives turned out the way they did (and really what got them there). I enjoyed this one immensely. I went outside today to read a few chapters and just got lost; I actually finished most of the book in one sitting! It’s a little tough to read at some points (these women can be vicious) but it makes sense considering their past. I would have to say because of this the book felt very realistic. Sure, there were a few clichés that can get on one’s nerves but then again, a work of fiction such as this is bound to have them, so I looked past them. I’m so glad I read it!
If you’re looking for a raw and realistic read that truly touches the aspect of friendship, then this is the book for you. I loved watching Teeny and Melly slowly overcome their past issues and seeing that friendship CAN survive even the toughest things.
