The Best ManBeth Chase is too busy planning perfect weddings to worry about the lack of action in her own love life. But if she was looking for a man, she wouldn’t be looking at Colin Pratt. Her boss swears that Best Man Colin is a quiet scholar and science fiction writer who couldn’t possibly cause a fuss at his own brother’s wedding. He’s clearly never met the man in question. Snarky, sexy and more than a little inebriated, Colin is the final obstacle between Beth and the last perfect wedding she needs to make partner. Of course, when she helps him into a taxi at the end of the night she has no idea that he’s only just begun to poke holes in her professional exterior. Colin might have the skills to seduce a romance professional, but can he convince her that he’s the best man to share her happy ever after?

There’s a lot to love about weddings. I mean basically we’re talking about giant parties filled with friends and family celebrating love. Sure, sometimes the food is cold, the groomsmen are too rowdy, someone decided against an open bar or you’re stuck at a table with strangers, but when it comes right down to it—weddings rock.

 

WFlowersMen in Tuxes. (Or suits or that super adorable thing where they wear jeans and vests.)I just love seeing guys all dressed up. I’m not a particularly fancy woman. For every day, give me a man in jeans, but once in a while it’s nice to them all cleaned up.

Flowers. There’s just something about flowers. For me, they mean life, love and new beginnings—everything a wedding should be.

Dancing. I love dancing. My husband…does not. But we have a deal. He has to dance with me under a few select circumstances and weddings are one of them.  I also love to watch the bride and groom have their first dance, the bride dance with her father and the groom dance with his mother. And I’m a total sucker for the silly and elaborately choreographed wedding party routines.

Wedding dresses.  I wish I could have a dozen weddings-there are so many beautiful dresses. I adore the simple ones and stare in wonder at the bejeweled bodices and cathedral length trains of the more complex designs.

The Kiss. That first kiss after two people have promised to stand by each other, to fall in love with only each other each and every day for the rest of their lives. That kiss always makes me cry.

Honorable mentions: Flower girls dancing with ring bearers. Almost too-pretty-to-eat cakes. Grooms reacting to seeing their brides (or grooms) for the first time.

As a wedding planner, Beth has seen the best and worst that can happen while two people are trying to tie the knot, but there’s nothing she would rather spend her life doing.

So what do you love about weddings? Tell me in the comment section.
