7 Kids' Books About Weddings

by Beverly Cleary
Barbara watches as her older sister's impending marriage turns her into a responsible adult. Read my review of this book here..

The Wedding Planner's Daughter
by Coleen Murtagh Paratore
Willa Havisham tries to convince her wedding planner mother to seek a little romance herself.

by Suzy Kline
For Valentine's Day, Harry stages a wedding to classmate Song Lee. 

by Ann M. Martin
Kristy's mother marries Watson Brewer, and the Baby-sitters Club must take care of the many cousins attending the wedding. (This was my favorite book when I was in 4th and 5th grade.)

by Melissa Lagonegro
Each of the Disney princesses gets ready for her own magical wedding in this easy reader, which I reviewed here.

by Judy Finchler, illustrated by Kevin O'Malley 
Miss Malarkey has been acting strangely. Why is she so unusually happy? She's getting married! Read my review here.

by Barbara Park
I read this book as a kid, and it's being re-released later this year.  It's the story of how a boy comes to accept his new stepfamily following his mother's remarriage.


  1. Congratulations--very excited for you and M.! I loved Babysitters' Club growing up, and I enjoyed rereading Kristy's Big Day several times. Have fun with your engagement period!

  2. +JMJ+

    I finally found an old copy of Kristy's Big Day!!! =D I might review it next week or the week after.

    Isn't there another Cleary book with a wedding? I recall Beezus and Ramona's aunt marrying Howie's uncle or something like that.

    This is a great theme, by the way! You've got me thinking about weddings in books I've read. So far, the only ones that come to mind are those with weddings at the beginning (e.g., The Moon by Night by Madeleine L'Engle) and weddings at the end (80% of all Romance novels I've read, LOL!); but it's rare to find a book wrapped up in a wedding.
