I wasn’t planning a wedding when I purchased this book several years ago, but because it’s by Mary Carol Garrity, one of my favorite designers and authors, I knew it would be filled with wonderful ideas I could use when entertaining. It didn’t disappoint!
In the BNOTP Library: Nell Hill’s Stylish Weddings
Author: Mary Carol Garrity
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Mary Carol shares all the intimate details of planning a wedding in her home for her daughter. I knew the pictures in this book would be amazing since Mary Carol lived (at that time) in a beautiful historic home. They are wonderful! The picture of her entry decorated for the wedding is beyond beautiful! It was worth buying the book just for that! I still can’t get the image of the umbrella stand filled with tall, elegant black umbrellas, topped with beautiful, ornate silver-plated handles out of my mind! Just a beautiful book all the way through.
- Mary Carol is very open and honest in this book about the stresses of planning a home wedding, including awakening at 3 AM to the sound of lightning and thunder and being unable to go back to sleep since so much of the festivities were to take place in her backyard. In her amazing style, she pulls it all off beautifully!
- Whether you’re planning a wedding in the near future or not, this book has lots of great ideas for preparing and decorating for any special occasion, including floral arrangements, seating ideas, invitations, table settings, decorating and more. There’s also a section with information and tips for hosting a bridal shower.
