*Vintage Weddings*

If you are planning a vintage style wedding this book may be perfect for you for inspiration & help with planning your special day.
A visual journey through 100 years of wedding styles and dresses, "Vintage Weddings" takes a close look at the key periods, diverse styles, iconoclastic designers, significant ceremonies and cultural influences in wedding fashions. Organized chronologically, this book shows the reader how to recognize the silhouette that will best suit their body shape, identify luxurious fabrics, contrast various styles, and to source appropriate accessories, from gloves and shoes to flowers, veils, jewellery and table decorations. Throughout the book, individual pieces that epitomize the defining characteristic of each designer or decade are analyzed in detail. This book is for those interested in collecting and acquiring all aspects of authentic vintage pieces relating to the wedding ceremony, and also for prospective brides who are buying new, but are looking for sources of inspiration.
The book received a wonderful review from a customer at Amazon ...

This is just what I was looking for when my best friend decided to make me her bridesmaid and wanted help with organising her vintage themed wedding. It has some brilliant ideas about how to theme your wedding according to the period - so if you want to know how to have a Great Gatsby style wedding you'll know exactly what sort of canapes, drinks and table decorations to have, not to mention the beautiful range of dresses to drool over! I'd recommend this book to anyone who is planning a wedding for the practical aspects, but I would also recommend it to people who just love looking at gorgeous wedding dresses! All of you who were fascinated by Catherine Middleton's dress should find this book equally fascinating. Oh, and it also talks about the meaning behind lots of wedding rituals and traditions - great for entertaining your dinner companion with at the wedding breakfast!!
The book is available from Amazon & is currently priced at £16.25 ~ find it *here*
