First up is A Country Wedding, starring Jesse Metcalf & Autumn Reeser:
A famous country singer set to marry a glamorous Hollywood actress returns to his small town roots. When he crosses paths with his childhood sweetheart – and finally feels inspired to write songs again – he reevaluates his life, his values and his opinion of true love. As his wedding day approaches, he must decide if he has chosen the right woman to be his wife. Hallmark Channel
I really liked this one! A plucky heroine that runs her own farm (ok – she’s about to go bankrupt and lose it but you can’t have everything lol) – can mend her own fence – who is fine with being just friends with the hero. Sign me up!
Bradley and Sarah were childhood friends who were *married* at 13 years old, when his parents died in a tragic accident.
Bonus - the minister that marries them is the same childhood friend that *married* them at 13!
Then there’s the completely implausible ending – one day after he's supposed to marry a different woman that he *loves*, he now has the perfect barn wedding planned with this girl (the childhood friend). It was admittedly adorable – but yeah – I worry about the long term relationship. lol
Drinking Game Rating:
Take one drink for the stereotypical, conniving, deceitful current girlfriend who only wants fame and money.
A Country Wedding is lower on the cheese & wine scale. You aren’t going to get drunk with this movie - it was surprisingly low on tropes (the gf was a whopper & made up for it though) but it was enjoyable and I loved Sarah.
