Description

In this incredible collection of inspiration, images, and ideas, Preston Bailey shares his experience from more than twenty years of designing celebrity and high-profile weddings to show brides- and grooms-to-be how to create an unforgettable event. Each chapter portrays one of nine breath-taking weddings designed by Bailey. The themed wedding events - including a Glorious Glasshouse Fantasy, a Tropical Latin Fantasy, and a Modern Metropolitan Fantasy - are illustrated with luxe, full-color photographs. Bailey's engaging text guides the reader through the entire process of planning the decor for a wedding and explains how to bring diverse elements together to create a stunning, yet personal, environment. Beginning with large decisions, such as choosing a color theme and transforming a space to fit the couple's vision, he moves on to the details - flowers, centerpieces, arches, napkin rings, lighting, table settings, and more. Bailey also presents nine design motifs from his Signature line. Above all, Preston Bailey's Fantasy Weddings encourages those planning a wedding to have fun and allow their creativity to blossom while designing their dream event.
