Vogue Weddings: 120 Years Of Posh Nuptials

When a ritzy celebrity gets marriedᅡᅠ— Ivanka Trump, say, or Lauren Bushᅡᅠ— and the photos don't surface within a few weeks, you always know: Vogue got the exclusive and will publish a pretty spread of the bride and all her trappings sometime in the coming months. Vogueᅡᅠalso loves to profile weddings of those on their own masthead, which is a convenient by-product of hiring well-to-do, beautiful women from fancy families (see: Plum Sykes, Lauren Santo Domingo, Claiborne Swanson Frank, and Marina Rust). Now Vogue has assembled their bridal coverage into a new book, titled Vogue Weddings: Brides, Dresses, Designers, which is full of lovely pictures of weddings that cost more than the average American home.
