Synopsis: Filled with entrancing text and lavish, full-color photographs, I Do: 100 Years of Wedding Fashion offers a captivating review of the glorious and glamorous in bridal gowns during the last century. Readers will see how the ostentatious wedding gowns of the Edwardian era transformed into the knee-length, Chanel-inspired flapper gowns of the 1920s. By the 1930s, Hollywood reigned. Film-star weddings, publicized both on the silver screen and in fan magazines, brought a touch of glamour to the Depression-era bride. The 1940s war bride had to cope with make-do concoctions of muslin and parachute silk, while the '50s brought back romance, influenced by Dior's New Look and the American "sweetheart" line. And despite the rejection of marital bliss by the hippie counterculture and new feminism of the '60s, marriage survives and the white wedding is here to stay. Today, 21st-century brides are looking for the sophistication of couture fashion and the sexiness of today's sleek designs and sublime fabrics. This mesmerizing guide features 350 full-color photos of such famous brides as Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Grace Kelly, and hundreds more. From the traditional to the avant garde, the wacky to the sublime, this is a magnificent source of fashion inspiration for brides-to-be, their mothers, and wedding professionals everywhere.
