Thanks to some warped design of the universe, engagement season falls during the holidays. So, while you’re fretting about gaining 5 pounds of pumpkin pie weight, some of your very best friends will be changing their relationship statuses to “Engaged.” Sure, having a Facebook feed of engagement ring photos when you’re trying to get in the holiday spirit is lame (can I see more cats in Christmas sweaters, please?!), but here’s a glass-half-full approach: now you know what gift to get them!

Answer: Vogue Weddings: Brides, Dresses, Designers,  a no-brainer gift for the recently engaged. It’s not a planning book or Emily Post-type etiquette guide, so it won’t stress the bride out. Instead, it’s a glossy, coffee-table worthy collection of the most glamorous weddings from the magazine’s 120-year history. With nearly 400 photographs of ceremonies large and small (think royalty, social figures and celebrities), the book is endless inspiration for the stylish (or aspiring) bride.

After a forward by Vera Wang (who else?), it delves in to iconic images: Grace Kelly kneeling at the altar, Kate Middleton in her Alexander McQueen gown and a bashful Carolyn Bessette Kennedy exiting that small Georgia chapel. The photography is top shelf, featuring the work of Patrick Demarchelier,  Mario TestinoIrving Penn and Annie Leibovitz, just to name a few.

There is even a chapter about models’ weddings that includes portraits of Natalia Vodianova and Cindy Crawford, and a guide to the 10 most influential dress makers. Hey, you might even want to buy a copy for yourself (one day — right?).
