A lavish look and helpful guide to weddings is presented by the woman who single-handedly revolutionised the bridal industry with her chic, sophisticated, stylish designs. .

In this superbly produced volume by Callaway Editions, Ltd.; the world‘s most successful bridal gown designer shares her thoughts and vision on weddings. Culled from years of experience in the wedding business, Vera Wang offers ideas on every aspect of the wedding day from invitations to flowers, from cakes to attendants.

Of course, 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 a headpiece, and much more.
