    I was given the opportunity to review this luscious book but, quite honestly, when I first saw it I wondered if it was really a book for me. That question was answered as soon as I opened the book. ooh!la!la!
    If you met me you would wonder at my passion for fashion – I dress simply and for comfort, but I have had a life long fascination with the history of clothes and fashion and I avidly read Vogue – noting the make-up, hair styles and clothes that fascinate fashionistas.

    This book is a luscious look at wedding fashions from the turn of the 20th century to the present – and a wonderful, photograph filled romp it is. If I had had a ‘proper’ wedding I found the dress of my dreams on page 192! This is a book about fashions but it also a wonderful compendium of the history of weddings and wedding fashion accessories as well as the changing styles of the all important wedding gown. You’ll learn what the customs were for weddings throughout the time frames highlighted in the book. What times were matrimonial services generally held? What did pearls symbolize? Hollywood weddings? Royal weddings? How many pageboys, bridesmaids or ring bearers are ‘de riguer’ for a fashionable celebration? From off-the-wall weddings of royal (or Hollywood) pagentry to the short skirt-ed simplicity of the ‘barefooted’70′s bride this is book filled with dreams, lace, ruffles, elegance and fripperies. This book will bring smiles and pleasure to would be brides, long past brides,soon-to-be brides and those with memories of being a bride. It will appeal to brides, of course, but also to those, like me, who are enamored with the history of fashions and enjoy seeing how customs, styles,shapes, materials and accessories have changed over the decades.

    This book has been a very happy surprise and will remain happily ensconced on my shelf – ready for day dreams and research. It’s a beauty of a book and I can’t help but recommend it ! Filled with photographs, fashion, facts and wedding trivia this is just an all around ‘happy’ book.

    We all have known for years that Vogue was a special magazine, but who knew Vogue would become THE fashion icon for the ages! A glorious and brilliant voyage through Vogue’s wedding fashions. A beautiful, glamorous, breathtaking photographic journal. I treasured every page, every word, and every design. How lucky Vogue was to have such great, great photographers preserving fashion for everyone to enjoy, as well as the artistic and creative designers who gave these fashions life. Thank you, Vogue, for bringing your wedding fashions to all of us to enjoy and wonder over as well as those very lucky “yet-to-read” people of the future who will have your special historical fashion publication to pour through and revere as I did.

    I got this book for my birthday and loved the pics. I have it on display in my ‘pretty room’. Great addition to my coffee table collection!
