Reviews

“Here's a unique title for couples striving to create a memorable wedding by transporting their guests to another era. Turudich, an expert on vintage lifestyles . . . has written a well-organized resource on weddings from 1910 to 1950. . . . 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.” —Library Journal, on the previous edition
