|Where does Becky's colleague Erin say she's going for an engagement ring?|
Harry Winstons. Becky told her the ring was vintage so she would still be impressed. Becky had decided to go into work and only tell her colleagues about her engagement if they asked about her trip. However, she ran in yelling about it and shoving it under people's noses.
|When Luke's stepmother Annabel came to visit them in New York, where did she walk with Becky?|

|Who is the President of Elinor's building?|

|When Becky is at the cake studio, what dress size did the other bride tearfully say she wanted to be on her wedding day?|
2. Her exact words were, "I'm going to be a size 2 on my wedding day if it kills me". She was wearing jeans and strappy high heels. Her mother was scolding her because she wouldn't taste the cake for fear of eating too many calories.

27. She realises she hasn't made a will and panics. Throughout the rest of the book, we see the changes she frequently makes to this will.
|Which type of dress does Erin want Becky to wear on her wedding day?|
Vera Wang. Danny (obviously) wants Becky to wear one of his creations, Christina thought she was wearing Richard Tyler, Erin thought she was wearing Vera Wang and Lisa wanted her to wear her mother's. This came after the fiasco where Danny stocked his own clothes at Barneys and a sleeve fell off one of the T-shirts when Christina picks it up.
|Which apartment does Becky live in?|
B. Her address is Apartment B, 251 W 11th Street, New York, NY 10014. We see this frequently on the letters sent to Becky.
|Which of these were NOT on Becky's collectors items list at the Antique shop?|
African statuettes. Also on her list were 19th Century Watch Fobs, shaker moulds and her new addition, 1930s barware after purchasing a cocktail cabinet. She wasn't able to fit it in a taxi, so she had to splash out on $75 to make a delivery van take it round the corner to her apartment.
|When Janice asks her, did Becky say she preferred Evian or Vittel water?|
Vittel. For sparkling water, Janice suggested Perrier. This conversation took place when Becky phoned home to tell her mother about the New York wedding. Unfortunately, Janice was there alone because her parents were on holiday in the Lake District.
|Where did Becky end up getting married? (Legally!)|
Oxshott. She went through a ceremony in New York, but they didn't sign any papers or exchange rings. They then got married for real in Oxshott. Robyn, Elinor and the other unknown New York guests didn't suspect a thing and Becky and Luke left early to catch one of Becky's clients private planes back to England. Becky was very happy at her Oxshott wedding and she was glad she avoided the $100,000 fee Robyn would have imposed if she knew they were getting married elsewhere! I hope you enjoyed this quiz!
