Brides Unveiled: Designer. Dresses. Drama.

From Yvette Klobuchar, her debut novel, Brides Unveiled! “A must read for brides-to-be, not to mention the entire bridal party! The hilarity and heartbreak of working with brides will have you in stitches until the final “I do”.” —Amy Allen, Group Publisher of Modern Luxury-Brides Is Juliana Belle, bridal dress designer extraordinaire, destined to have her fairy tale ending or a sad love story? Juliana Belle has a knack for designing gorgeous wedding gowns, a talent inherited from her iconic mother along with the keys to the family business. So when eager brides race to Belle's Bridal Shop, a posh bridal salon in Chicago, in search of their dream dress, Juliana must keep their emotions in check while managing a team of temperamental seamstresses. These daily challenges are merely one of the many pins in the pincushion for Juliana, a single, working mother trying to fill a huge void left by her former spouse. Still nursing her wounds from her failed marriage, Juliana avoids sharing her marital status for fear of spooking her wide-eyed brides with the sad reality that storybook weddings can end up in the discounted fiction aisle. Even so, Juliana stubbornly clings to her fantasy with her new love interest. Absorbed by the notion that she has finally found a down-to-earth man to build a life with, Juliana ignores the warning signs. Can she find a way to love again and have a family, or is she a hopeless romantic meant to live her life married to her business?

I could not put down the book, “Brides Unveiled,” until I finished it. ‘Juliana Belle’ is a character to root for. Her world of couture is enviable and entertaining, with a whole lot of crazy. Add dating to the mix and you’ve got a page-turner. Yvette Klobuchar’s creative writing style is humorous and heartwarming. I definitely recommend both the author and her book, “Brides Unveiled!”

A wonderful array of characters in a humorous, yet touching story. Very nicely evokes the atmosphere of a bridal store/workshop. The reader will have a better understanding of the world of the bridal gown designer and the crazy world of brides. Patience, persistence, humility and a sense of humor are hallmark characteristics of the successful designer and Juliana Belle, the main character is at the top of her game!

An easy and delightful read. In fact, I could not put it down. Yvette Klobuchar has a very distinctive voice, a sharp eye for describing people we can instantly imagine, a self-deprecating but clever manner of fixing herself in society's ranks that makes her a true participant in a believable cast of characters that ring with comic authenticity. The story holds together from beginning to end and in-between is filled with smiles and giggles and visions of bridal dresses peppered with very sage tidbits of knowledge gained through her personal experience of the dos and don'ts of a successful wedding. Entertaining for all, it is a must-read for Chicagoans who will love to read about their fave places.

My wife told me that I had to read this book. At first, I was skeptical, but after reading the first few pages, I was hooked. Having a daughter get married can be a little daunting. Reading Brides Unveiled, I felt like I was reliving my daughter's wedding all over again (especially the emotional roller coaster ride!) Chapter 18 brought tears to my eyes--and I am not one who cries easily. I highly recommend that all father's-of-the-bride buy this book for their little girl--and order a second copy for yourself. You won't regret It!

It is easy reading,enjoyable ,interesting ,fun book.A little of everything: competition in bridal industry;straggle of small individual bridal business;some psychology of young women who are looking for a unique ,beautiful ,exquisite design wedding outfit.Some personal drama, happy ending, finding the love of her life.
