Hold onto your hats, this…is Don’t Tell The Bride: The Untied Kingdom edition! This is the show where the groom gets the whole wedding budget, and the bride gets no say in how it’s spent.
Tonight, the pressure’s on for ex army major Will Harker, as he attempts to organise the perfect day for his bride [...]
Grab your fascinators - it’s Four Weddings time! To celebrate the release of The Wedding Diary by Margaret James, we’ve asked four lovely Choc Lit authors to imagine their characters’ weddings.
Which wedding would you most like to be a guest at? Don’t forget to leave your vote at the end of the post!
What do weddings mean to most of us?
That’s in addition to the ceremony, the public affirmation of love and devotion, the joining of two people and hopefully two families forever?

So, it’s your 17th birthday - many happy returns of the day. But remember, it’s okay to eat cake but not too much - a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips and all that.
