Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

No one doesn�t like flowers (unless allergies intrude). Yet when planning a wedding, it�s easy to get sidetracked, confused, even bewildered by the plethora of blossom options. In her second book (after Victorian Flower Style, 2008), Manhattan floral designer Wagner emerges not so much with easy remedies as with 12 ideas and thoughts, most tied to elegant photographs, to consider. She starts with enumerating seasonal flowers and branches and quickly segues into colors, unusual accents, and tips to follow, noting that seasonality no longer matters. Her items represent more a stream of consciousness than structured advice and exposition, though the chapters allow for groupings�for the wedding party, for the ceremony, for the reception, and for making floral designs at home. In addition to the pictures, which by themselves spark inspiration, Wagner features recommendations for keepsakes, for guest favors, and wiring techniques for such smaller floral touches as a pearl-studded ribbon wrap and fern candles�all easy to do. A coffee-table guide for brides and grooms. --Barbara Jacobs

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is beautifully presented with lovely photographs. It would be helpful to brides with a lot of money to spend at the florist and for brides who like flowers but are not familiar with what is in season year-round. If you want beautiful pictures to show the florist, this book is for you. If you are a skilled flower arranger who has a business or who does a lot of arranging for friends, this book would give you some ideas that could be used for occasions other than weddings.

There is a brief chapter at the end giving some instructions for making a few bouquets and a few general remarks. This book is useless for the person who has some experience arranging flowers but who needs detailed instructions for special effects.

This book failed to give me even ONE single good idea. A waste of my money. If you can't tell a weed from a flower then maybe the book may be useful but I still doubt it.
