*31 Days of Christmas* Christmas Wedding Planner

Thanksgiving is over and the countdown to Christmas has officially begun (at least in my house). I don't limit myself to just reading cheesy Christmas romances during this time of year. Oh no. I also find myself binge watching Christmas movies on Netflix and the Hallmark Channel. And I thought, why not incorporate that into my blog as well. So I give you the 31 Days of Christmas (which will be much easier to accomplish with movies than books like I've tried to do in past years).

Next up is Christmas Wedding Planner.

Watched on: Netflix
Duration: 1 hour, 26 minutes
Originally aired on: December 2017
Directed by: Justin G. Dyck
Starring: Jocelyn Hudon, Stephan Huszar, and Kelly Rutherford
Please seem IMDb for full cast and crew info.


Wedding Planner, Kelsey Wilson, is about to have her big break: planning her beloved cousin's lavish and exclusive wedding. Everything is going smoothly until Connor McClane, a devilishly handsome private investigator, shows up and turns Kelsey's world upside-down. Hired by a secret source, Connor quickly disrupts the upcoming nuptials but wins Kelsey's heart in the process.


In true Christmas romance fashion, Kelsey and Connor get off on something of the wrong foot. After a slight mishap at a coffee shop, he buys the last blueberry scone, which she needs to suck up to her aunt. Fortunately her aunt gets that blueberry scone, because of course Connor is at the engagement party that Kelsey is on her way to when she stops at the coffee shop in the first place. 

Kelsey keeps sending text messages or posting to a blog about her experience planning her cousin's wedding. I couldn't help but hope that they were just personal notes for herself, but her sign-off definitely made them seem like they were intended for someone else. Some of the things she shares seem inappropriate for a blog or for sharing with someone else when she's single and she's definitely not sending them to her best friend/cousin whose wedding she is planning. 

Because this movie focuses on wedding planning and is only tangentially related to Christmas, it doesn't actually fit the mold for the typical Christmas romance. There are a few Christmas festivities peppered in, but the storyline doesn't revolve around them. 

This movie includes gingerbread cookie baking, a frigid stakeout, and a wise bartender. 

I'd almost certainly watch this movie again, but not for cheesy Christmas romance because it just doesn't fit that mold for me.
