What bride doesn't dream of walking down the aisle in a gown by Vera Wang, the world's most sought after bridal designer? Vera Wang, who single-handedly revolutionised the bridal industry with her chic, sophisticated, stylish designs, shares her vision and ideas on every aspect of this special day in a lavish volume produced with Callaway Editions, Ltd. The world's most successful bridal gown designer shares her vision for this most important event--the wedding. Rather than a soup-to-nuts approach with endless lists of what to do, Vera Wang details each aspect of the wedding with her thoughts and ideas, culled from years of experience in the wedding business. From budgets and bouquets to cake and communication, Vera imparts her wisdom and advice. All the traditional parts of planning a wedding - invitations, registries, and music--are included, but what sets this book apart from all the others are the little things she pays attention to. The First Dance, The Bride Who Wears Glasses, Fittings (and weight fluctuations!), The Garter ("Do I Have to Do That?") A wedding book by Vera Wang wouldn't be complete without detail on the bride's gown. She explains how to select the right neckline, construction, length, bodice, and waistline for each bride's figure. What fabrics are appropriate for certain times of day. How to choose among a veil, headband, flower blossoms or bows for a headpiece. All of this is accompanied by hundreds of photographs that illustrate Vera's vision. Vera offers advice on every aspect of this important day. There are 75 essays on gowns, on veils, on waistlines, on choosing a short or long dress, on dressing the bridal party, on rings, on bouquets, on love, and more, with hundreds of glorious photographs.
