Overview

America's most innovative wedding designer—hailed by Modern Bride as the “wedding design dynamo”—showcases her completely fresh and beautifully photographed ideas for personalizing your special day.

Michelle Rago is a rising star in the world of weddings, and she has made her name by focusing on the biggest trend in weddings today: personalization. Now she makes her creative process available to everyone, revealing the techniques that made Modern Bride name her as one of the industry's top twenty-five trendsetters. With stunning photography illustrating ten real-life weddings from a variety of locations and styles—from country nuptials in Vermont to a tropical ceremony in the Caribbean to the St. Regis Hotel in New York to a country club in St. Louis— Signature Weddings shows readers how to tap into their inspiration by focusing on and including:
• How Michelle designs a wedding that truly reflects the bride and groom
• The three essential S's: setting, season, and situation
• Core design elements, ranging from a family heirloom to local foliage; and color palettes that inform every design detail, from bouquets and centerpieces to table settings, decor, invitations, food, dress, and cakes
• Sidebars and boxed text throughout that focus on specific concerns, from destination weddings to wedding programs, dealing with the weather, rehearsal dinners, lighting, music, invitations, and more.

Unlike over-the-top wedding guides full of unrealistic concepts, or dated books that try to impose one old-fashioned approach, Signature Weddings lets couples embark on a creative journey that suits any budget or taste—with results to cherish for a lifetime.

    Great book for the professional planner and the bride

    Great book. Really shows how to take your ideas or a single item and build a beautiful dream event. Great use of concepts to develop themes and 'signature elements' to personalize your event.
