Charlotte can dress any bride to perfection-except herself. When she discovers a vintage mint-condition wedding gown in a battered old trunk, Charlotte embarks on a passionate journey to discover the women who wore the gown before her. Emily in 1912.

Taken at face value, the tale is superlative, but considering the spiritual message both on the surface and between the lines, this novel is incredible.

    4 stars- This is the story of Charlotte and the "perfect" wedding dress, not only for her but for several other women over several generations. It is also about much more than just a wedding dress. This is a very poignant story with a wonderful message. I actually read this book several years ago. I was not familiar with Rachel Hauck and saw this book at the store and it sounded very intriguing. Plus, I loved the cover. I was not disappointed. It was a captivating, emotional and poignant story that started me on my binge reading of all of Rachel's books (which were all just as amazing btw). This book is referenced in several other of Rachel's books and it is always fun to revisit characters from one book to another.

    If you haven't had a chance to check out this book yet, be sure to do so soon because you will thoroughly enjoy it. Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Another sweet romance! I love Rachel Hauck's writing, and once again, she did not disappoint.

    Despite the fact that Charlotte is known for her expertise dressing brides, she is looking for peace about her upcoming wedding, and 'accidentally' wins an auction for a trunk that has been welded shut. When she discovers a wedding dress inside, she begins digging into the dress' past. It is in perfect condition, which raises numerous questions in Charlotte's mind.

    As Charlotte searches for answers to her many questions surrounding the dress, she discovers more than she ever dreaded or bargained for. Each of the four women that have worn the dress each have their own story to tell, and Charlotte learns about her own past.

    I love the faith that is interwoven into each woman's story, and love that Charlotte is able to overcome her empty past in order to embrace a beautiful future.

    This book goes along with The Wedding Chapel and The Wedding Shop. I read them all out of 'order', but still enjoyed them all immensely.

    Many thanks to Thomas Nelson for a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

    I love the cover of this book! Weddings bring about a lot of pleasant thoughts...who doesn't love a wedding?

    As I began reading about Charlotte I immediately liked her. She loves helping make a bride's dream come true by helping a bride pick just the right dress at her bridal shop.

    One day, on a whim, she decides to go to a local estate sale, not intending to buy anything. But once there she is drawn to an old wooden trunk. The auctioneer seems to draw her into the bidding and, lo and behold, before she knows what has happened Charlotte has bid on the old trunk and won!

    The old trunk holds a treasure of years gone by. When Charlotte discovers the wedding dress in the trunk's depths she sets out on a one woman crusade to find out the history of the wedding dress. This crusade takes her from woman to another, four in all. Emily, Mary Grace, and well...Tim!

    This is read is romance/mystery without all the "yucky" stuff. Just good clean reading with christian references to God.

    A great read!

    The Wedding Dress is an enchanting tale! Rachel Hauck skillfully weaves together the stories of four brides bound by one wedding dress. I delighted in the tender romance and reveled in the history woven within the threads of a vintage gown. Beautifully told, each woman's journey adds exquisite depth and richness to this stirring story of timeless love.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

    This book pushes a lot of my romance-reader buttons. It has conflict, secrets, lead characters with integrity and faith, and a few characters and events that make things a bit more interesting on the way to happily ever after. Now, I'm not a huge fan of dual-timeline stories, and that might have tripped me up if the author hadn't so seamlessly woven THE dress throughout each of four brides stories. And along with the (sisterhood of the traveling) wedding dress that miraculously fits each bride without alteration, a certain odd gentleman in purple who seems to be in the right places at all the right times to give little nudges to those brides.

    While some of the characters (ok, mostly Tim) took me a bit to warm to, I instantly fell for Grace and her beau. There is something about encountering lively older characters in novels that just tickles me pink, and I have a definite fondness for 1930's stories.

    Ultimately, this is an unabashedly romantic novel. Romance that spreads across the decades and links four women in more ways than one. It is also very much a feel-good novel that also touches on prejudice, pride, grief, and faith.

    Having read the entire Royal Wedding series in quick succession last December, I once again enjoyed the author's writing voice in The Wedding Dress. Hauck's writing is consistent, pleasant, and inviting. I love how the faith of the characters is just out there, being lived and discussed, and I always enjoy seeing how she weaves in the supernatural element. Her characters are also consistent, unfortunately, in that they sometimes almost feel like watching the same set of actors trying to take on slightly different roles in a series of movies.

    An enjoyable, quick, and decidedly Southern read. 3/5 stars for sheer romance and enjoyable storylines.

    This review refers to a finished copy received from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan's Fiction Guild. No compensation was received. All opinions expressed are my own.
