Synopsis of Loca por las compras prepara su boda For once in her life, things are going well for Becky Bloomwood. Famous around the world for her love of shopping without limits, Olympically ignoring the state of her impoverished bank account, she has finally gotten her dream job as a shopping consultant in a New York store ("I spend other people's money... and get paid on top of it"). She also lives in a fabulous apartment in Manhattan with her boyfriend Luke and has even opened a joint account with him.
But, suddenly, everything speeds up. Luke asks her, who would have thought it, to marry him, and then, as if moved by an ancestral automatism, the mothers-in-law come into action. Becky's mother wants the wedding to take place in the garden of her home in Surrey, of course, and for her daughter to wear the same frilly dress she has been wearing, which she has been saving for the occasion. On the other hand, Luke's, in the purest American style, is determined to organize a lavish ceremony at the Plaza Hotel in New York in which a forest will be recreated, or perhaps a Venetian dance, in short, the more extravagant the better. Becky is aware that she has to choose between the two, but how can she make such a decision? On the other hand, tasting cakes, choosing the dress and making the wedding list is so exciting... And so the weeks go by until, one fine day, he realizes that he has organized two weddings, one on each side of the Atlantic.
