Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the beginning (at least the recent beginning), there was Downton Abbey. This British soap has featured plans for two elaborate weddings, and today’s brides-to-be have taken notice. Fashion writer and blogger Annabel Beeforth (lovemydress.net) rejoices in the possibilities for old-fashioned marriage events in each decade between the Edwardian era and the 1970s. It’s hard not to get caught up in her enthusiasm as she examines the obvious (dresses, shoes, hats, hairstyles, and bouquets) and related considerations, such as reception photo props, makeup, purses, cultural references, scents, and real weddings inspired by the era. Although she mistakenly pegs the 1920s nuptial of Downton’s Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley to the Edwardian era, Beeforth clearly has done her homework on that era and others. She navigates finger waves (in the hair), veil and train lengths, and appropriate music, decade by decade. For example, she advises brides choosing the ’60s era: “A luxurious yurt, hand-crafted from sweet chestnut wood covered in cream canvas, would be perfect for a magical wedding under the stars.” Brides would do well to consult Beeforth if they are considering a vintage wedding. Her ideas are spot-on for a memorable day. (Apr.)
