Jacqueline Bouvier, Lady Diana Spencer, Grace Kelly, Wallis Simpson, Carolyn Bessette ... Each name evokes an individual style that still fascinates the world and continues to influence fashion. Now, the unforgettable weddings of these legendary women -- along with other famous brides of the past century -- are chronicled for the first time in a single, highly illustrated volume that is sure to provide inspiration and ideas for a new generation of brides.
From Queen Victoria's lavish court wedding in 1840 to Carolyn Bessette's intimate and understated ceremony on Cumberland Island in 1996, each of the weddings featured in this charming and informative book set the stage for the bridal and entertaining styles of the day. And each of them contributed, in a unique way, to the wedding traditions that young brides still follow.
But "Legendary Brides" is much more than just a lovely look back at the past. Author Letitia Baldrige -- with the same grace, humor, and command of etiquette that marked her tenure as social secretary for the Kennedy White House -- offers authoritative, practical, and often amusing, advice on every aspect of planning a wedding today. And with skill and insight, she "borrows" unique touches from a century of memorable weddings and reinterprets them eloquently for a new generation of brides.
Lavishly illustrated contemporary features provide timeless ideas for gowns, flowers, cakes, music, invitations, table settings, and more. And a highly readable text with rarely seen photographs and illustrations recreates the atmosphere of each legendary wedding infascinating detail, making this a delightful book to read and enjoy as well as an indispensable sourcebook for anyone planning a wedding.
As Letitia Baldrige says in her Introduction, now that we have entered a new century, "young and old alike are hungry for beauty, tradition, and old-fashioned values." "Legendary Brides offers today's brides something old, something new -- and something borrowed, too.
