A December Bride – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
At a party, Seth introduced Jack (Layla’s fiance) to Jessica (Layla’s cousin). Now, 10 months later, Layla is being asked to attend Jack and Jessica’s wedding. She, with the meddling of her Aunt Lorraine, decides to go with her date Cooper (also her neighbor and friend). But just a day before the wedding, Cooper gets sick. Seth convinces her to go with him since he is already going. Layla is still angry at Seth but has no other options. At the wedding, Layla, a aspiring interior designer, sees a potential client who doesn’t want to work with anyone new … until Seth says Layla is his “fiance”. The news spreads around the wedding and everyone is happy for them. Layla, on the other hand, is freaked out. She knows the lie will crumble around them. Seth tells her he will keep up the lie, but only if she decorates his home to impress his boss. Well lies only lead to more lies and everything goes out of control. But who is Seth and Layla really fooling?
Get ready to say awwwww. This is a tale of the true Christmas spirit … not business but family. Now, just use Layla’s strength as she is guilted into attending a wedding, decorating, and conversing with those who wronged her. It is hard to watch, but this is Hallmark … not Lifetime. You will fall in love with the two lead characters and their connection. The story establishes that Seth has been in love with Layla longer than she knew, but he just couldn’t speak up. This honesty and the traditional decorations will warm your heart. Hallmark gave its fans a great love story with Christmas traditions, without going cheesy … although a slightly predictable ending.
