Storyline

Aspiring interior designer Layla O'Reilly is dreading the Christmastime wedding of her cousin who's marrying Layla's ex-fiancé. Although Seth Murphy is the one responsible for introducing the bride and groom, she begrudgingly accepts his offer to be her date as she's out of options. Seth gets carried away at the reception and announces they're engaged, forcing a mortified Layla to keep up the pretense. But as the faux couple spends more time together they find themselves feeling something very real. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Fantastic Movie: Excellent Story; Cast;Main Characters
12 December 2016 | by riakaurgSee all my reviews

Hi All, Hallmark has exceeded my expectation with this movie December Bride. Wonderful, truly wonderful leading man and lady. Daniel Lissing and Jessica Lowndes are so in sync with the acting makes me feel like I am watching a real life couple. The smiles, the looks, all sweet, innocent longing and so much love it is amazing. Hallmark needs to feature this wonderful glorious beautiful so matching couple in an upcoming Valentine and more Christmas movies. I am now a forever fan of Hallmark channel if this happens. Also if hallmark can place them in a solid series together would be super. I have watched many shows and movies in all channels but never have I seen a couple so much made for each other, superior match. For the casting director Well Done!. Jessica and Daniel aka Layla and Seth I have seen this movie going on 10 times now so I will give this movie, Jessica and Daniel a complete 10
