BOOK REVIEW: Vintage Wedding

Here's a unique title for couples striving to create a memorable wedding by transporting their guests to another era. "Vintage Wedding: Simple Ideas for Creating a Romantic Vintage Wedding" Turudich, an expert on vintage lifestyles and author of Authentic 1940's Hairstyles (Streamline, 2001), has written a well-organized resource on weddings from 1910 to 1950.

She begins with emphasis on the bride and her gown, accessories, and attendants. Then she explains historical colors and the vintage bridegroom. Later chapters discuss how to create ambiance at the wedding and reception through decorations, favors, programs, menus, wedding cake, and music.

Beautifully illustrated, this book also can serve as a record of fashion and popular culture for those doing historical research. Appendixes include a glossary, a list of historic American hotels, and resources such as corsetry shops, costumers, and millineries. Highly recommended.
