Everyone loves a Christmas wedding, right? Maybe not Layla O'Reilly, whose cousin is marrying Layla's ex-fiancé. Dreading attending the wedding alone, Layla accepts an invitation to be Seth Murphy's date, her ex's best friend and the person responsible for introducing the bride and groom. Seth gets carried away at the wedding and announces he and Layla are engaged, but it's not all bad because news of their impending (fake) nuptials convinces a big client to take a look at Layla's fledgling home-staging business. While Seth helps her professionally, can he also convince her to give him a real chance romantically? This movie is based on the 2013 book A December Bride by Denise Hunter.
