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.

I love this book. This book chronicles the history of wedding attire from the Middle Ages to 1993. Ms. McBride-Melliger has done a beautiful job. The book has plenty of bridal dresses in various historical periods. This book is a keeper.

Lots of great modern pictures, but not a very thorough look at the history of wedding dresses. I was hoping for a more in-depth treatment.

I thought that this was a beautiful book about one of the most special aricles of clothing a woman will ever wear in her lifetime. It showed the reader the great history of the wedding gown over a period of time, and how some of these same styles are popular by today's standards! If you are interested in a book that gives you nice pictures and a history of a timeless creation such as the wedding gown, this is the book for you. I have been married myself for sometime now, and I enjoy looking at this book even after my own wedding!

there is text in this book but i barely made it past the pictures - historical dresses, cool modern ones, shoes, lace & more. a great book for deciding what you'd like your dress to look like. and daydreaming.

This book has a wide range of wedding dresses in different styles, lengths, moods, fabrics, and even colors (although the vast majority are white). If you're looking for something that's the height of current fashion, it's not going to help you at all. But if you're looking for a broad range of options for something more unique but still classy, it's a fantastic find.

This book is definitely very useful for brides who want their dress inspired by the past. There's also a very curious part about star signs for brides-to-be who want to have fun. However, if your mantra is "modern", I don't think this book is appropriate.

Nice to look at, but not really as a guide for wedding clothing today. Good book for some ideas, and the book is nice to look at.
