This volume begins with an overview of the sumptuous wedding gown, chronicling its history from royal weddings to today’s celebrities and presents a variety of silhouettes—from elegant Empire-style floor-length gowns to flirty short dresses and sophisticated suits. Also featured are some of the best weddings in the world, including celebrity, society, and high fashion weddings.
