Overview
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.

The royal treatment

While most of us mere mortals could never afford a lavish wedding fit for royalty, we still like to see what one looks like. Preston Bailey, event planner to the stars, indulges the masses with Preston Bailey's Fantasy Weddings, a gorgeous book filled with truly fantastic wedding designs.

Bailey is the designer responsible for Donald Trump's latest wedding (scheduled for Jan. 22) and the fairytale wedding of Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa. He also did the flowers for Oprah Winfrey's lavish 50th birthday bash.

From the Godiva Chocolate Fantasy to the Hamptons Countryside Fantasy, Bailey spares no expense (and he doesn't skimp on the flowers, either: one rain forest-themed reception features huge pineapples made entirely of roses. In another, towering bamboo shoot centerpieces are topped with orchids).

Yes, it's all very over the top, but Bailey makes it fun with his chatty prose, in which he recounts each event with obvious pleasure. And you can get great design ideas from this book. Bailey makes common-sense suggestions, such as incorporating the design elements of the reception space into the decorations.
