It’s Wedding Week! My sister is getting married on Saturday the 26th, so I’m heading out of town for the festivities and preparations. I was thinking this morning about the best wedding scenes in a book and couldn’t come up with one, can you? So then I moved onto romantic scenes. Of course, the number one favorite of many is when Mr. Darcy finally, FINALLY, kisses Elizabeth at the end of Pride and Prejudice. Although some will cringe, I think the love scenes between Bella and Edward are teenage swoon worthy. That is exactly why us grown up women love the book, it brings us back to the first time a boy we liked struggled to put his arm around us. On the fly, the third scene I came up with is when Claire returns to Scotland and finds Jamie in Dragonfly in Amber. While I liked the first book, Outlander, better and I’m so tired of the series I haven’t even purchased the most recent installment, I love that scene in Dragonfly.
I have to admit, it feels like a pretty weak list, but I’m rushing to pack and arrange for carpool all at the same time. Help me out! What are some of your favorite wedding scenes or romantic scenes in a book?
