Confetti: PAST PERFECT

Wedding trends from the first half of the 20th century are the focus of “Your Vintage Wedding,” by RETRO online magazine editor and publisher Nancy Eaton. This elegant hardcover volume takes a walk down memory lane, visiting ring designs, dress styles and popular music along the way. Practical advice for creating authentic period events shares pages with antique illustrations and photographs, plus images of modern-day vintage celebrations. Eaton even offers nostalgic menus, such as a 1930 Good Housekeeping Institute wedding breakfast that includes creamed fish, squab on buttered toast and popovers with strawberry jam.
