Prairie-Style Weddings by Fifi O’Neill is a book that brings mere simplicity into stunning beauty with ease and grace.

“A Prairie-Style wedding is a perfect blend of romance and pragmatism, of simplicity and embellishment. It counts on nature to provide a beautiful setting and then adds personal touches with decor and details,” says Fifi.

Her new book shows readers how regular settings can be transformed into unforgettable venues for all your wedding needs.

“It relies on invention, encourages resourcefulness and finds beauty in imperfections,” says Fifi.

The book combines rustic, earthy and romantic styles to suit any wedding vision. It also features tons of photos and ten simple projects along with many helpful wedding tips.

“When it comes down to the fine details, prairie-style festivities embrace all sorts of humble materials, in ways that elevate them from ordinary to fabulous.”

It’s all about turning ordinary into exquisite and allowing your dream wedding to become a reality.

“The goal is not to achieve the kind of flawlessness one expects at a traditional affair, but to revel in the perfection of quirky exuberance and endearing details that let you make your mark on a memorable celebration,” says Fifi. 

Prairie-Style Weddings ($30) is available for purchase at Chronicle Books.
