Synopsis: This is a compilation of ideas for all brides-to-be from one of Southern USA's foremost experts on entertaining. Weddings are more in vogue than ever, and in no other region of the United States are they celebrated with greater panache, ingenuity, and tradition than in the American South. On the pages of this information-packed volume, author Beverly Church explores all the elements that make Southern weddings so special. She begins by tracing the romantic history of Southern weddings from Colonial times to the present and suggests ways to incorporate time-honoured traditions into today's wedding. Each successive chapter is devoted to an in-depth discussion of one essential aspect of wedding preparation: the engagement, the dress, invitations and parties, the gifts, the flowers, the ceremony, the reception and the food. We are invited to a broad array of weddings all over the South, from an intimate chapel ceremony in the mountains of North Carolina to a lavish social event at a Virginia plantation, to a no-holds-barred bash in the Texas Hill Country. Illustrated with full colour photographs of weddings in such diverse locales as Washington DC, New Orleans, and Atlanta, as well as with nostalgic vintage photographs, "Weddings Southern Style" is a useful guide, full of ideas for brides to be everywhere.
