What Is the Most Memorable Wedding in Romance Novels?

June is a popular month for weddings, and as any good romance reader knows, many romance novels end with a wedding featuring the happy hero and heroine.

But not all weddings go off smoothly, and those are the ones we remember the best. A runaway bride, a missing groom, maybe an irresistible best man?

What is the wedding you remember the best in romance novels?

Call Me Irresistible by SEP -- When I first read the book, the wedding scene at the end gave me a little twinge of unease, but re-reading it again, that twinge became a boulder. Why would a bride, who knows her future husband's history, even think of pulling that stunt?

That whole scene plenty much said, hey folks this is a fiction book-- a fairytale, not based in any type of reality.

I was always a big fan of the wedding in Lynsay Sands's The Perfect Wife in which our plus-sized heroine makes her maid sew her a smaller wedding dress for the big day. Unfortunately, she doesn't manage to lose the weight she thought she would and has to be wrapped up--beyond breathing or movement (think Keira Knightley in the first Pirates of the Caribbean). The heroine tries to suck in her cheeks to appear slimmer and so can't say her vows, and she can't really breathe to say them anyway! She has to ride a horse down to the chapel because she can't breathe enough to get down there herself. I believe the event ends with her dress ripping in front of everyone at the wedding feast and her passing out... it's a comedy of errors and unfortunate events after that...

Okay, I'll pull the 'ancient' card and say many of Julie Garwood's historical weddings. I think it was The Wedding where the heroine had to examine every word of the vows and then made changes as she went. I'm horrible with titles but I think it was in The Secret where the wedding took place in front of a council and the bride at the end wasn't sure if she hadn't married one of the elders instead of her intended. I definitely love quirky weddings - so now i need to read Sands's Perfect Wife.

The Perfect Wife is a great book and that wedding is definitely vivid even though I read it years ago!
And Julie Garwood's historicals are among my favorite and most-read boks: the weddings in them are always a hoot! The Wedding and Saving Grace are among my favorite of her weddings.
