Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price!

This book was not very helpful to me. It had some good ideas for decorating, but what I was wanting was a book to give me ideas for different brides maids and bridal bouquets. It did not give any ideas as far as different flowers for different arrangements. It is a good book if all you are looking for is a book to give you decorating ideas. Not different flower ideas.

Format: Hardcover
As with her other books, Maria McBride-Mellinger has put together a series of charming and beautiful photos to draw ideas from. There is a lot of inspiration in this book, but little practical help. She often mentions techniques and flowers (especially flowers) that are unusual and are not showcased in her pictures. And not only are there no pictures, but the reader doesn't even get a clue as to what shape, color or size the flower is. The most noticible feature of this book, is the awful typesetting job that was done. Sentences get split between pages, and sections start at the end of a page. This isn't a problem in most books - however, in this book, there are 1-3 pages of pictures between almost every page. So you start to read a new section, have to flip through 2 pages of photos to finish the sentence, and then flip back to admire the flowers. With just a little foresight, this book could have been more neatly split up (none of the sections are that long), and it would have made for a much more enjoyable reading experience.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Weddings From The Heart ~ Jean A. Neuhart on September 4, 2003
Format: Hardcover
As a professional bridal consultant, I keep an extensive library of wedding related books on hand to help my brides design their own weddings. Ms. McBride's Bridal Flowers is one of my favorites. It is full of wonderful ideas - not just the traditional "must have" wedding flowers such as bouquets & boutonnieres, but the out-of-the-ordinary (but inspiring) boas, decorated lampposts & gilded calla lilies. Ms. McBride shows that flowers are for more than just being carried or worn. The large color photos are fantastic. So many other books have little or no photos, or hand drawn diagrams that leaves the reader wondering. Ms. McBride's book lets you see exactly what she is talking about. It doesn't claim to be a how-to book, but perfect to take along when visiting your floral designer.

I just bought this book, I love the arrangements. It contains pages of sophisticated and classic arrangements. There are some very elegant ideas for wedding decorations too. I'm using at least three ideas from here for my niece's bridal shower, and plan to use it as reference for the wedding. NO HOW-TO's though... would have been nice. This is definately a book you buy for the pictures, but not to learn floral arranging.

I bought Ms. Mellinger's book on The Perfect Wedding also, and totally adored it. While the pictures in this book are as beautiful as those in her other book, it seemed to me that they were not as "90's". I bought this book specifically for flower arrangement ideas, but I ended up marking off most of my idea pictures from her other book. Still, it is comprehensive, and covers flowers for the ceremony, reception, and for the wedding party. A good deal for the price

You'll get beautiful ideas for your bouquets, for the mothers' flowers, for decor and spotlight pieces. Maria McBride Mellinger has created a timeless collection of gorgeous images and explanations that will help you create your own perfectly personalized floral pieces.

This book would be a terrific engagement gift, as well.

This book offers the bride history behind customs along with fabulous photographs. I always let my brides peruse this book looking for new ideas. One bride absolutely adored the boa of astilbe and roses. It was perfect for her.
