The Vintage Summer Wedding is the second novel by Jenny Oliver. The synopsis says: "A Vera Wang dress, a sophisticated London reception, and a guest list that reads like a society gossip column were all ingredients of Anna Whitehall's perfect wedding-that-never-was... Spending the summer uncovering hidden treasures in a vintage shop, Anna can still vividly remember both her childhood dreams; the first was that she'd become a prima ballerina, and dance on stage resplendent in a jewel-encrusted tutu. The second was that at her wedding she would walk down the aisle wearing a dress guaranteed to draw a collective gasp from the congregation! Years ago Anna pirouetted out of her cosy hometown village in a whirl of ambition...but when both of those fairy-tale dreams came crashing down around her satin ballet shoes, she and fiance Seb find themselves back, their wedding and careers postponed indefinitely... Don't they say that you can never go home again? Sometimes they don't get it right... This one summer is showing Anna that your dreams have to grow up with you. And sometimes what you think you wanted is just the opposite of what makes you happy...."
