After one gets engaged, it’s time to plan the wedding from the venue to the all-important dress. A bride will search magazine after magazine for not only the dress but her theme of the day; a day that will hopefully live up to her 8 year old dreams from yesterday. One great source for any bride is the book, Vogue Weddings: Brides, Dresses, and Designers. This book is a great coffee table, drinking tea, wasting a rainy day away type of book. The book starts out with a lovely forward from an institution in weddings and wedding dresses, Vera Wang. It is split into sections by locations, ranging from royal weddings to the vogue wedding with the last section dealing with the wedding designers guide. The sections can hopefully help pin a bride’s vision down of what she wants for her day. It not only shows the dresses, but pictures of family, wedding members, and the beautiful locations. I enjoyed not only the lovely brides and their beaus, but the stories that accompanied them. Anyone who picks this book up, whether for a quick read at Powell’s or for keeps, will be easily lose track of time and will be wanting to have an excuse to plan that next wedding.
