A high quality book with excellent photographs. The book is more than just a picture book of fashion changes of wedding dresses, it delves into another aspect of our historical adventure. Who would imagine that wedding dresses could tell you so much about historical life, customs and everyday views? An interesting waltz through aspects of political and daily life affecting the wedding dress and its function and how important it became as symbolism for both rich and poor.

It was quite a pleasure to find there the information not only about "haute" wedding fashion through centuries, but photos and stories about "ordinary" weddings. Of course, royal weddings and celebrities' ones are really nice to look at - but they don't give you the whole picture. And this book covers everything. Rare photos, rare info - it became one of the jewels of my library.

A quality put together book but for the cost it wasn't that great as far as dresses it showed. If I would have seen it before buying it, I probably wouldn't have.
