ABOUT BOOK: Katie Fisher and Brady James may be a match made in heaven, but that doesn't seem to guarantee them a happily ever after accompanied by angelic choirs. In fact, the sounds being heard at the bridal shop where she works are on the contentious side lately, as a bride- and groom-to-be try to mediate the growing rivalry between their basketball-obsessed families in the middle of play-off season. On top of that, Katie's parents are nagging her to get out of Dallas and come home to tiny Fairfield where her former boyfriend Carson is waiting for her, ready to rekindle their relationship. Oy vey! What's a girl to do? And will she ever be able to wear that gorgeous wedding dress she won? The breezy fun continues as Janice Thompson throws everyone's favorite small-town girl into big-city bridal chaos--and makes her choose between the love she thought she lost and the love she stumbled upon in the aftermath.

If I could have a do-over on my wedding, it would have just been my husband, myself and the pastor. I have very painful memories from our wedding, so I love to read ones where they are funny, good and romantic. I live vicariously through the characters authors write about .

If I ever had a wedding I would lie it to be simple. Close friends and family in a church by a minister. I don't have fantasy wedding dreams, never have and never will. 

My dream honeymoon would be Alaska.

Cliche but I'd love to go to Niagra Falls for a second honeymoon. Then go to Macinac Island.

If I could have a do over for my wedding, I would have bridesmaids that really cared about me and not those that felt duty bound.  I found no joy in them other than my sister.

I would love to go anywhere warm for a honeymoon. Right now the wind is whistling around my house and is pretty chilly so thinking about warm places is about all I can do! Would love to see Maui or Puerto Rico or Aruba or Cancun or...Yeah, lots of places but not enough funding. :)

1. It would be nice to do a renewal of vows at the beach, perhaps alongside a few other couples doing the same. It would need to be under pleasant weather conditions, maybe at sunset.

2. The only do over for my wedding would be that we stayed at a downtown hotel which happened to be on a prom night. Someone had gotten into our room and left it a mess before we arrived.I wish I could have made other arrangements to correct that.

3. We went to Yellowstone during the first year of our marriage. It was in September after most tourists had left. It snowed at Mammoth Hot Springs, and we were the only ones there. It was romantic with the snow gently falling and the steam from the springs rising. I always thought we would get back there, but we haven't. It would make for a great second honeymoon destination.

My dream destination for a second honeymoon would be Sanibel Island, Florida.  I traveled there once with a group of friends and loved it.  Going back with my husband would be wonderful - the ocean and the stars at night, ahhh....

#3 - I have been married over 49 years. Looking back to the day my wife and I got married, my dream honeymoon destination was wherever she was. We didn't have a lot of money back then because we got married so young, so things like cruises, a trip to Hawaii, etc. were out of the question. We simply wanted to be together.

If I could have a do-over wedding I'd do it exactly the way we did it.  We got married in the judge's chambers.  My parents and his cousin & wife were there.  Thirty-three years later we've never looked back or regretted not doing something bigger.  

My dream honeymoon destination would be Hawaii.

If I could have a do over, I'd have the same meaningful and intimate wedding ceremony but my reception would be very different!  I'd have a pig roast with corn on the cob and bake potatoes.  I'd tell all of my guests to bring a change of clothes and enjoy the fun!

If I could do a do-over of my wedding day I would ask for more help instead of trying to do so much on my own. We had the wedding at my husband's home in the backyard. He and I did the decorating and set up ourselves. I was doing the music when it was time to go down the aisle with my son. Friends had asked and I thought there wouldn't be that much to do but I was wrong. If I had had help I would have enjoyed the day, my guests, and the joy of getting married rather than being frazzled at the end of the day. 

Thank you for this book giveaway opportunity, Janice!
