I've been wanting this book for so long you can imagine how jazzed I was Christmas morning when I found it under the tree. From 1700 onward, The Wedding Dress by Edwina Ehrman is a pictoral history of what brides have worn and why. I'm still perusing through it over these holidays and so far would reccommend it to any bride-to-be. In addition, anyone into fashion history will find this coffee table gem chock full of gorg photos a real boon . . . .
