From the romance of its evolution to the splendor of its design, the wedding dress is unlike any other garment, a talisman from a fantasy world, the manifestation of dreams coming true. This book draws on wedding garments in the V&A's renowned collection along with photographs, letters, memoirs, and newspaper accounts to explore the history of the white wedding dress and the traditions that have developed around it from 1700 to today, when designers from Vera Wang to Vivienne Westwood continue to challenge the aesthetic. Paintings, drawings, and wedding photos depict queens, princesses, celebrities, and everyday women--including Kate Middleton--in their gowns. The text considers the dress in the context of the commercialization of weddings that began in the Victorian era. The Wedding Dress is not only about costume, but also about the cultivation of the image of the bride.

  3. Figure out how to deal with the people criticizing the decisions you made in Steps One and Two. Mom. Aunt Diane. The caterer. The etiquette experts. The pushy saleslady at the bridal shop. They all claim to have your interests at heart. And they're all driving you crazy...

Finally The book that understands what today's bride-to-be really needs: realistic strategies and creative options from women who've been there, strong support, diplomatic skills, and a great sense of humor.

A fresh, modern take on wedding design perfect for today's bride. Paige Appel and Kelly Harris started designing weddings in 2009, and their work immediately resonated with young brides and grooms: weddings in fields, art galleries, refurbished warehouses, vineyards, hip hotels, or farmhouses. Weddings that featured Mimolette and Mexican beer; fireside chats; succulents and wildflowers; funny jokes; farm-to-table dinners; recycling; offbeat photography; desert heat or mountain snow; salty cookies; pots of paint and confetti cannons. People, Real Simple, Daily Candy, and Design Sponge are just a few of the publications that responded to their addictive mix of old and new, vintage and modern. In this, their first book, Appel and Harris share ideas from the weddings they have designed, such as celebrations at a Palos Verdes farm (Red Hot Juleps, wildflowers galore, a mouthwatering "Sweets Stable") and The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs (a bourbon-soaked retro cocktail hour, colossal balloons, and a marching band), all photographed here in detail. With their trademark wit, they walk the reader through planning their event, from vision statement and storyboard to color palette, stationery, signs and logos, centerpieces and bouquets, furnishings, linens, china and silver, aisle decor, menus, and more, providing hundreds of inspirational ideas in the process.
