Everything about choosing he best style for the bride to be.

This is the ideal guidebook for the bride as she begins her search for the perfect wedding dress. Filled with inspiring ideas and visual references, it will help her develop a vision of her dress while making sense of the overwhelming choices available. She can use it to show storekeepers what she wants or to work with a dressmaker on a custom design.

Easy to use, The Perfect Wedding Dress is organized by dress style -- ball gown, princess line, mermaid, and so on -- and by dress part -- necklines, backs, veils, trains, and more. A helpful glossary in each section defines the terms used to describe the dresses.

The author methodically helps the bride assess what style would suit her best, considering her figure shape, depending on whether she wants a train, and so on. Along with the stories behind the designs, he discusses what fabrics best suit each design and offers suggestions for appropriate headwear, jewelry, and shoes.

The book features dozens of beautiful photographs and detailed descriptions of dresses, including those of celebrated brides such as Princess Diana, Jennifer Lopez, and Grace Kelly. Designs featured include Baggley, Mischka, Christian Dior, and Vera Wang.

Brides of all ages and means will find The Perfect Wedding Dress inspiring and reassuring, and an indispensable part of their wedding planning.
