Bridal Fever


It’s a literal race to the altar when a steamy romance novelist with a long line of torrid romances—and ex husbands—sets out to help a bachelorette ditch her bridesmaid gowns once and for all.

Gwen Green (played by Andrea Roth), an aspiring editor at Hearts Desire Publishing, is growing tired of being one of the only women left from her group of college friends not to be married. She and her friend Sandra (Melinda Deines) have tried every dating option in the book to no avail, until Gwen is assigned to work with Dahlia Marchand (Delta Burke), a famous romance novelist who has begun writing her steamy memoirs, detailing—among other things—the parade of famous men who have fallen in love with her.

Soon, Dahlia takes Gwen under her wing and promises to find her a husband in just six months, quickly introducing her to Mark (Vincent Walsh), a handsome and successful bachelor. With everything moving so fast, Gwen has to decide if Mark is the right man for her or if her perfect match may come from a more unlikely source. Making matters more difficult is the fact that Dahlia’s memoirs read more like one of her novels and less like the honest tale of the ‘woman behind the myth’ that her fans are dying for. With time running out on her personal and professional deadlines, Gwen’s head begins to spin and it seems like everyone is catching “Bridal Fever!”

Dove Review

Dating can be so hard! In this witty tale about the search for the right guy, Gwen—one of the last single girls in her bunch of friends—starts the dating game in search of her soul mate. With the help of a famed romance author, she discovers that finding the right one can be strenuous.

The film has a cute premise, a lot of funny moments and is perfect for a girls-only movie night. Themes, however, are a tad mature because they have to do a lot with dating and divorce. Therefore, we recommend the film for ages twelve and above and are happy to award it our Dove Family-Approved Seal.
