Know somebody who got engaged on Valentine’s Day?

Help your friends and relatives avoid becoming Bridezillas, or at least looking like them, by giving them Philip Delamore’s The Perfect Wedding Dress (Firefly, $24.94), an elegant coffee table book full of memorable photographs of bridal gowns, veils, accessories and more. Among many pictures of classic and contemporary styles, Delamore shows the wedding dresses worn by celebrities such Audrey Hepburn, Kate Winslet, Liv Tyler, Carmen Electra, Queen Elizabeth II, and Princes Diana. Anyone planning a wedding with African-American elements may want to have Queens: Potraits of Black Women and Their Fabulous Hair (Doubleday, $29.95), by Michael Cunningham and George Alexander, a good source of ideas for bridal hairstyles. This book shows Ghanian styles such as Bolga and Dadaba braids along with styles that are more familiar in the U.S. such as the Afro and the pageboy. You can find reviews of both books archived in the “Coffee Table Books” category on One-Minute Book Reviews.
