The Knot: Ultimate Wedding Lookbook

Author: Carley Roney (and the editors of
Genre: How-to
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9
Type: Non-fiction
Number of pages: 288
My overall opinion: This was a pretty awesome book! It had big glossy pages and hundreds of photographs of weddings in every conceivable color, style, and setting. There were sections packed with pictures for each color. For example, in the blue section, there are photographs of weddings in turquoise and fire-engine red (very pretty and bright!), navy and sunshine (I’d prefer a brighter blue, but it’s nice), aquamarine and sour apple (LOVE!), and robin’s egg and chocolate (very popular right now). For probably eight other colors, it had section like this, each with different shades of the color paired with other colors. Also, each of the color sections tells what flowers are (for example) green, if it’s a green section. Inbetween these sections are chapters about everything from putting the wedding together to what the cake should be like (a whole chapter just about that!) and what the food should consist of, plus where the reception should be and much more. If you are close to being married, this book would probably be immensely helpful! We just got it to read for fun, but. :) Below, a spread from the green section...and one from the blue section below that. Delightful, yes?

I have enjoyed that book, too!! It seems, though, like most of the weddings in it are pretty expensive. The author of it has also written a wedding gown book which I really enjoy. :)

That sounds like a fun book to look through and dream.
