The COVID Bride

Sara La Chapelle

How does a Southern Belle plan the perfect wedding in the midst of COVID? By conquering one catastrophe after the next. The COVID Bride is the hilarious, straight-talking wedding guide that could put a ’90s rom-com to shame.

Determined not to cancel her special day, Sara La Chapelle threw her fancy wedding checklists out the window and hit the ground running. Laugh along with her as you learn how to plan the wedding of your dreams—no matter what it takes—all while maintaining the poise and grace of a true Southerner.

Loaded with first-hand advice you won’t get anywhere else, The COVID Bride is the ideal resource for brides in the post-pandemic wedding boom. So pour a glass of wine and hang on tight as Sara grits her teeth and smiles her way through the wild bridal ride you won’t want to miss.

Sara La Chapelle makes her debut with The COVID Bride, a novel she felt compelled to write after her traumatizing experience of planning a wedding during a global pandemic.

Sara earned her MBA from American University and her bachelor’s in journalism and fine arts from the University of Georgia. Marketing consultant by day and writer by night, Sara makes her home in the suburbs of Atlanta with her husband and sweet dog. She enjoys going for long walks, spending time with family, hosting events, and making each day a story to tell.
