Your Vintage Wedding is a lavishly illustrated guide to the most popular types of twentieth-century weddings with advice on how to incorporate creative vintage details into your special day to add romance, fun, acrd unforgettable style. From the Art Nouveau elegance of the 1910s to the Art Deco Hollywood glamour of the 1920s; from the night-club and caf#65533; society of the 1930s and 1940s to the Audrey Hepburn-era elegance of the 1950s, Your Vintage Wedding reveals what weddings were like during these periods and how to add vintage elements to invitations, flowers, photography, music, menus, and more -- including finding the perfect retro gown.

Playful, sophisticated, and filled with useful resources, this full-color book includes dozens of photographs to enchant and inspire. It features accounts and photos of actual vintage weddings, including a 1940s extravaganza on San Francisco's Treasure Island. Whether you dream of a 1910-style bash complete with potted palms, ropes of pearls, top bats, and dancing the tango or simply small touches that add beauty to the day, such as reviving the custom of wearing orange blossoms or tying lovers' knots in your bouquet ribbons, Your Vintage Wedding will help make it a day to remember.
