        Product Description-To Have & To Hold: Magical Wedding
One of the most anticipated experiences in every bride-to-be’s wedding planning is choosing her bouquet. However, when faced
 with the real-life sea of styles and flowers, a bride-to-be may soon become overwhelmed. To Have & To Hold offers more than
    150 unique bouquets, pictured in 200 luminous photographs, that incorporate scores of seasonal flowers both familiar and
    exotic, as well as flowering branches, pinecones, leaves, feathers, family lace—even fruits and herbs—to guide her in her
  decision. David Stark and Avi Adler escort the bride-to-be through today’s maze of flowers and bouquet styles, identifying the
indispensable basics: Labels and deconstructed bouquets name every flower. Lists of flowers available by season and by price
 help narrow the choices based on when the wedding will take place and what the budget is. Also included are practical details
 such as how to care for flowers, how to make your own stunning and cost-effective bouquet, how to hold the bouquet and then
   how to preserve it, and how to tie in boutonnieres, bridesmaids’ bouquets, and flower girls’ baskets. In addition, the authors’
   personal anecdotes offer sage advice on bouquet do’s and don’ts. To Have & To Hold has a bouquet to strike any fancy for
                                                      every kind of wedding day.

Nice designs, but overall not as many bouquet photos as expected..., June 2, 2006 By K. Berry (USA)
  This review is from: To Have & To Hold: Magical Wedding Bouquets (Hardcover) I recently purchased this book (and another
bridal bouquet book that hasn't received as much p.r. as this book). My expectations of this book were very high because of all
the promotion in bridal magazines, however, I was disappointed to discover there aren't as many bouquet photos in the book as
expected. The photography is excellent and the floral designs pictured are very contemporary and vibrant (kudos to the
designer), but I found there to be a lot of white space and a lot of filler photos (distance or silhouette photos of brides, up close
photos of cut flowers, ribbon with scissors, etc) used. The text subject matter is very light (not detailed "how to" instructions) and
varies in topic though generally explaining a little about some of the types of flowers used (for example, "Leucojum is known
informally as the summer snowflake..."). Of 208 pages, this book contains, approx. 80 (yes, I counted) large and medium size
photos of bouquets, approx. 30 small photos of bouquets, a...

Modern, beautiful bouquets, January 8, 2006 By Sarah Borkowski (Charlotte, NC)
  This review is from: To Have & To Hold: Magical Wedding Bouquets (Hardcover) I had absolutely no idea what type of flowers
I wanted or really what type of flowers were available for bouquets when I started planning my wedding. So I went to the library
and checked out a bunch of books on bouquets and wedding flowers. Most of them were terrible. They showed either ugly
bouquets from the 1980s or the traditional red rose bouquet. To Have and to Hold was very helpful in providing ideas on not
only specific flowers for wedding bouquets, but also different flower combinations and beautiful stem wraps.The book has full
page color picture of dozens of bouquets, divided by season. There is a wide variety of colors and styles to satisfy almost
anyone. To Have and To Hold also provides interesting twists on bouquets like adding berries, feathers, or holding a small book
with a flower as a bookmark. Along with pictures of bouquets it also shows how to incorporate some of the flowers into other
parts of the wedding (boutonnieres, flower girls, and cake...

Good place to start, March 23, 2006 By S. Yong (Sunset Beach, CA USA)
  This review is from: To Have & To Hold: Magical Wedding Bouquets (Hardcover) This book gives great info. if you don't know
a lot about flowers (pricing, names of flowers/descriptions, flower maintenance) or which flowers are available in the season
you're getting married. The pictures are beautiful & the bouquets are gorgeous but I wouldn't buy this book in the hope of finding
the perfect bridal bouquet. It is a good resource for ideas & to see bouquets that are creative, not tacky.
