"Weddings" presents page after page of evocative photos demonstrating how to infuse this most special of days with quintessential country touches that will appeal to a range of tastes. Broken into three sections - Choosing a Location, Designing the Day and A Wedding Primer - brides are taken step by step through the planning of the perfect country wedding. You can learn how to assess the pros and cons of various locations - both indoors and out - and the logistics involved, from setting up a catering area to obtaining the necessary permits. Then choose a theme and all the elements that go along with it, such as stationery, flowers, favours and a wedding cake. And of course those important nitty-gritty details are here, too: setting a budget, deciding whether or not to use a wedding planner and much more. Sidebars throughout give helpful tips and evocative photos prove that even the most 'country' wedding can be polished, stylish and sophisticated.
