Today's bride wants a wedding dress that expresses her personal style while also reflecting a rich tradition. Nothing achieves that goal as gracefully as a vintage or replica wedding gown. Whether it's a dazzling beaded tunic that captures the jazzy energy of the roaring twenties or a glamorous Hollywood-inspired dress from the 1950s, it can shape the entire wedding. With more than 250 photographs, this stunning volume takes readers on a dazzling tour of the past hundred years of bridal fashion, detailing the periods, styles, iconic designers, noteworthy ceremonies, cultural influences, and key looks.

"...Beautifully and chronologically organizes bridal fashion history from the past 100 years. From minimal to extravagant, flouncy to fitted, we get to follow the bridal gown's journey from decade to decade, as we learn how the iconic gown both reflects and influences moments in history. Toward the end of the book, Vintage Weddings provides a helpful wedding planner filled with tips and ideas for the modern bride who seeks to plan her wedding in the spirit of a particular era." - Crescendoh
