The photos are sublime, and the book is strong on the attire-related details with a dress guide. However, if you're focusing on the rest of the wedding -- the reception, the invitations, etc. -- you'll find other books are more useful (Best of Martha Steart, The Perfect Wedding Recetion, etc.); the reception photos here are of reception in very unique (and/or clearly expensive and grand) settings, making the ideas that they might bring to min less useful. Given that this is just about the most expensive wedding book on the market, it's not as good as you'd think.

This book is in full detail of what the wedding is to be. I love this book! I love how there is a bridal gown guide in the back. This book is great to daydream in.

The images in this book are beautiful, as well as her collection of gowns. She shows us different styles of weddings and gives, in a little more detail than I had expected, about the construction of gowns. I highly recomend this book to anyone who is getting married or is a desinger herself.

A stunning book...the photography is beautiful and Vera Wang is first class, as always. This book is full of advice for brides-to-be. My only complaint is there is no section devoted to 'real weddings' where we see a number of actual ceremonies as they happened. It was so good even my fiancee wanted me to buy it!
