A visual treat but lacking in concrete information.

This book looks fantastic-beautiful cover, lush full colour pics etc. but it really lets you down on the practicalities.For example, there is very little advice given on choosing the correct gown for different figure types. The photographs were also really dated and the sketches used by various bridal designers were pretty but totally unwearable.Having said that it's a great book for a student of fashion or someone interested in the historical basis of wedding gowns.
