“Let us make our weddings picturesque,” was the editor’s clarion call, and plea, in the April 1919 Brides issue. “Vogue seeks to give suggestions that will transform that correct and proper charm of that correct and proper wedding into something which more nearly approached the dream that every woman knows.” George Wolfe Plank was tapped to conjure a bridal reverie for the cover. Taking center stage is a fantastical creature bride who steps out from a forest of draperies blooming in flowers and a dove-adorned headdress, illustrating what form a bride dressed in the “the perennial silver of fairyland” could take.

I love this puzzle. Very challenging and fun to do. Love her dress and head piece. Having her arm flowers different colors made it easier to sort the pieces for that part.
Beautiful puzzle! Definitely a challenge, but well-worth the time and effort!
