Reviews - What do customers think about Weddings of Style: A Guide to the Ultimate Wedding?

Boooooring  Dec 11, 2007
Let me start off by saying that I never would have reviewed this book had I not noticed that this site is quickly running out of them. At the time that I write this, there are only 4 left in stock. This distresses me--not because this site is running out of such a great book, but because this book is so blatantly bad that the fact that anyone is actually ordering it can only be attributed to the lack of honest reviews of it. I can't sit by and let another copy of this book be sold without letting future brides know exactly what they`re buying--hence, here's my review. Enjoy!

The subtitle of this book, "A Guide To The Ultimate Wedding," is absolutely misleading. The few tidbits of "advice" are either so obvious that you can find them in any bridal magazine in the supermarket checkout line or so impractical that no ordinary person could possibly undertake them. It is the former that makes this book so uninteresting, and the latter that makes it utterly useless. For example the first bride featured, Sally Tadayon (who planned her own wedding), advises future brides to plan their own wedding with the following caution: "Consider the planning of your wedding as a full-time job. You will be doing nothing else but that." Is she joking? If we were all marrying the Earl of Albemarle (as she did), perhaps we could put aside everything else in our lives and take on the task of planning a wedding full-time. (It took Sally five full months to plan her wedding. Good luck getting your boss to approve THAT time off request.)

Of course, nothing about these weddings are practical. That being said, however, they're not so ludicrously over-the-top so as to make this book actually entertaining. Rather, it's just a so-so look into the world of rich (though not necessarily famous) people who go to great lengths and expense to give their wedding a "down home" look. The amount of money spent on these weddings is obvious, yet judging from the text provided in this book that is the only thing separating these weddings from those of us "normal folk." The condescending tone of the book doesn't help this book either ("Donkey polo uses the same ball accessories as the original game--but brooms instead of mallets!" HOW QUAINT!). Really, I can't find words to express how woefully inadequate the content is--each chapter is divided in sections with EXTREMELY brief notes on various aspects of the wedding. There is literally nothing in this book about actually planning your wedding, so even if you were financially able to make your wedding as lavish as those contained within this book you wouldn't be able to PLAN it with this book's help. Ridiculous.

The only brides that will be able to make use of this "guide" are the types that are featured within--those who are friends with the top designers who make their dress, who have the luxury of jetting to Paris or Milan at a moment's notice to be fitted, and can travel around the world searching out suitably "homey" wedding locales--and if you're one of those women, frankly, you wouldn't need this book. What this book lacks is heart--it's all fluff with no substance (and not very interesting fluff at that). I would save the $30 you would spend on this book and use it towards a wedding planner or something that you will actually, you know, get use out of.

Final verdict: Wait until it hits the remainder bin, and even then buy it solely for the photographs (which are only slightly better than average, by the way). If you want to daydream about truly decadent weddings, do it for free online at websites like, the planning site by the couple who held the most expensive wedding of all time. Its homepage alone has more information than all 168 pages of Weddings of Style!
