For every bride who wants a beautiful memory, for every parent who wants an affordable spectacle, and for every groom who wants to have fun, Real Weddings offers hundreds of ideas to inspire and delight. Filled with alluring photographs from one of America's leading wedding photographers and packed with advice from the managing editor of Bride's, the largest and most respected bridal magazine, this is an ideal guide for anyone involved in the planning and completion of a marriage celebration--one that should be unforgettable, manageable, and magical. Renowned photographer Mallory Samson and editor Sally Kilbridge profile sixteen couples from around the country, each chosen for their creativity and variety of wedding size, setting, guest list, and budget, in order for readers to easily adapt any of the details to fit their own one-of-a-kind needs. The authors follow bride and groom through the decision-making process--from basics, such as selecting flowers suitable for a Christmastime wedding and finding an appropriate dress for a backyard ceremony, to unique touches, such as sending mountain-motif invitations for a wedding in Sun Valley, Idaho. Concluding each story with the big day, Kilbridge and Samson capture the excitement and romance as they highlight the touches that made the event so special: an aisle of shells for a beach processional, an African dance routine for an ethnic-flavored reception, and a couple who drove away from their Maine ceremony in a station wagon trailing lobster buoys and seaweed. Throughout the book, interviews with wedding experts: a florist, baker, bandleader, consultant, makeup artist, couturiere, caterer, and hairstylist give suggestions for hiring and directing the professionals. Also included is a directory with suggestions for the ceremony reading and song selections and reception menu. Together, Samson and Kilbridge have produced a fresh, innovative package full of practical and inspiring ideas that will help anyone achieve a truly memorable day. Turn dreams into reality with Real Weddings. Photographer Mallory Samson and Bride's editor Sally Kilbridge, along with sixteen creative and diverse couples, will inspire future brides, grooms, family members, and friends in planning a unique and magical day.
