When you imagine your wedding, what do you see?
Maybe you
dream of exchanging vows before an intimate gathering of family and
friends at sunset, followed by a chic and elegant dinner under the stars
in balmy weather. You can practically see yourself at the altar, taste
the cuisine, smell the gardenias, and feel the music playing when you
join your guests to party at the reception.
But before your
wedding comes together with all the romance and glamour you’ve
imagined, you’ll need to make decisions about the details. Is your
color scheme bold and rich or soft and ethereal? Will you be married in
your mother’s garden at the end of a serpentine path or on an
exotic beach with the ocean crashing in the background? Do you desire an
elegant sit-down dinner or a fabulous cocktail party with a great DJ
who keeps the party going late into the night?
With so many
choices, it can be hard to decide where to begin. Now there’s no
reason to get overwhelmed, because wedding designer extraordinaire Colin
Cowie is by your side every step of the way. In Colin Cowie Wedding
Chic
, he shows how to weave a thread of style throughout your
celebration, from determining the overall feeling and mood to the
smallest and most personal details of the event.
Following
inspirational introductions from Colin about every part of your
celebration, each detail is captured with magnificent photographs:
bouquets; ceremony décor; centerpieces; reception décor; food
and drink; cakes; invitations, favors, and gifts; appearance for the
bride, groom, and attendants; ritual and ceremony; and music and
after-party.
Brimming with the kind of style that has made Colin
the number one wedding planner in the world for celebrities, heads of
state, and even royals, Wedding Chic finally gathers all of the
options in one dazzling, easy-to-reference place. With photographs of
more than 1,001 gorgeous details, it is simply the most comprehensive,
varied, and beautiful resource a bride-to-be could ever wish
for—one that is certain to make the wedding a celebration to
remember forever.

Sadly Disappointing
One of the great joys found perusing books such as this - is devouring the fabulous photographs. The lushness of the initial photographic impression draws the reader into the detail of the design - which then leads one to the descriptive text. It is this sequence that channels and transforms top-designer ideas into ones adapted to the reader's life. That process is a difficult challenge with this volume.

My criticism of this book has virtually nothing to do with the content; it's the presentation. The very size of the book is not consistent with most in this genre. It's small. That, in and of itself, could be fine if executed correctly. But most of the photographs are small - many of them not much larger than thumbnails on a page. This reader found it impossible to discern any detail in many of the smaller photographs. Even reading the accompanying text, then trying to find the detail it described in the picture, was often just not possible. Rather than inspiration, there was just frustration.

With so many books of this kind on the market, the reader doesn't have to settle for skimpy presentation. The publisher could have done better.

collin cowie wedding book
I've seen alot of Collin Cowie's work especially on Oprah, and love his styling, however the book didn't do alot for me.
I got a few ideas but felt I got the same ideas from his website, a little dissapointed with this one, I thought I would have gotten alot more out of his book.

Great resource
Colin Cowie is an icon in the field of event design. His work is definitive chic. However, as most cannot duplicate the lavish and expensive images featured, this book will be, as it for us, a creative springboard. We are using it as a visual reference for ideas that can translate to a designer inspired wedding venue on a sensible budget. For those who have or can hire someone with the talent and vision to do this, the book will be a great resource.

Bought before my daughter's wedding.
I had purchased Cowie's first book and loved it. But this book lacked what made the first one so special - big photos. There are some good ideas and many that are not cost prohibitive but a picture is definitely worth a thousand words when you are looking for these kinds of ideas. Just okay, I think overpriced for the presentation.

Much better wedding planning books available
There is a lot going on in this book, great if you have all the money in the world but not if you want to DIY your wedding. I would recommend The DIY Bride or Handmade Weddings. Super cute ideas in those books. Wedding Chic has very small colorful photos, was not impressed.

beautiful!
This is a beautifully crafted book. Its filled with pictures of all types of flowers and I particularly love the different table arrangements it provides. If you're looking to create a wedding without overlooking and without buying multiple bridal idea books, this book is perfect! I absolutely love it!

1,001 useful ideas
This is Colin Cowie's best book so far. Any bride on any budget can find more than enough ideas to enhance her celebration. Nothing cookie cutter or "bridal mag" here- just page after page of beautiful and tastefully executed events. Every level of spending is treated with equal style and grace. Each event is a "Wow!"

Professionals will love the detailed photography and informative text. Mr. Cowie's enthusiasm and energy is inspiring and contageous. This a great resource book for anyone in the event industry.

LOVE this book
Obviously Colin Cowie has expensive taste and is over-the-top with decor but that's why I wanted this book. It is a great "Look" book and also has some wonderful ideas in it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for some great ideas.

This is probably the best book I have read regarding weddings ever
This is probably the best book I have read regarding weddings ever. Colin Cowie is amazing so creative and precise. I see why Oprah Winfrey utilized his services for her luncheon event.

Look inside before you buy!
Excellent Purchase!
But if you have another book from Collin Cowie, you should look inside before cause there are many things that were in his previous books.

Inspirational!
If you're a Bride looking for some direction with planning your wedding day, this book is great for that. It takes a step-by-step approach to assisting you. If you're looking for ideas and inspiration, it's a feast for your eyes! As a designer of edible centerpieces, I loved the color combinations and the numerous variety of events, from beach locations to Bali inspired receptions. I know it may seem like I love them all, but once again, I did, I love this book!
