For brides who want to dream big (with a budget to match), this book from Vogue's favorite wedding coordinator offers many beautiful, modern and stylish ideas. Jo Gartin's Weddings: An Inspiring Guide for the Stylish Bride is basically a portfolio of the author's favorite work for her clients, famous and not. It offers lavish ideas for invitations, dresses, flowers, ceremony dÅ½cor, welcome gifts, party favors, seating arrangement displays, tiny desserts and towering cakes and rarely does Gartin suggest that any of the above isn't necessary. There are a few tips for the budget-conscious (and sewing-savvy) bride as Gartin illustrates dress and shoe makeovers to convert an off-the-rack find to a one-of-a-kind creation, though one wonders how many brides-to-be would be willing to take a pair of scissors to their precious dresses.
