When I asked myself the question, "Amy, honestly, do you really need another coffee table book on wedding dresses?" the answer was an unequivocal, "Absolutely!" Just released on October 30th, Vogue Weddings: Brides, Dresses, Designers is the ultimate art book out there about everything wedding and chic. It began as the brainchild of Anna Winatour, carefully edited and brought to life by Hamish Bowles and Chloe Malle.

This latest version of a discriminating bride's encyclopedia zeros in on weddings with 400 photographs to swoon over. If you want to know what it's like to tie the knot in style if you're royalty, a social icon, model, musician or designer who has graced the covers and guts of Vogue--this is your book.

A heads up: This treasure trove published by Knoph is available through Amazon at about half the price. Want it free? Okay, if you follow Vogue magazine on Pinterest you could win your own copy!

To enter to win, create a Pinterest board called “My Vogue Wedding” on which you must pin at least the cover of the book (cover pic to pin above!), and one Vogue Weddings image from the slideshow (here). When you’ve finished making your board, tag it #MyVogueWedding and send a link to voguesweepstakes@vogue.com. Five lucky winners will be selected at random to receive a copy.
