Floral Brides by Brenda Sneathen Mattox marries beautiful bridal gowns with the flowers that inspired their design. Eight exquisite wedding gowns and two lovely bride paper dolls underscore the traditional role that flowers have played in marriage ceremonies through the ages. Each of the very special gowns, some extravagant, some sublimely simple, express the qualities of the flower that inspired it. Roses, lily of the valley, jasmine, violets, orchids, gardenias, calla lilies and of course, orange blossoms. Each page is graced with a gown and an exquisitely painted portrayal of its floral inspiration. A must for collectors of wedding paper dolls as well as every lover of romance.
