Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - EDITOR’S LETTER -

There’s noth­ing quite like ‘that feel­ing’ when you get en­gaged. It’s so spe­cial, so unique… and so. Much. Fun! We’re in­cred­i­bly lucky to be con­stantly caught up in the big-day bub­ble of ex­cite­ment all the time while we live vi­car­i­ously through our read­ers’ wed­dings. This month has been ex­tra spe­cial for the Cosmo Bride gang, as we’ve had two of our very own team get en­gaged or mar­ried while we made this is­sue. With all the bot­tles of cham­pers popped, cake eaten and stream­ers draped over desks, it brought home yet again just what a mag­i­cal time it is when you say “Yes.” It also meant I was get­ting asked loads of ques­tions about ev­ery­thing from, “Is lush green­ery the new pe­ony?” to, “What the heck do I do if it rains?!” We try to pack in as much ad­vice as pos­si­ble into each is­sue (check out our ex­perts’ ad­vice from page 25) as well as give you oo­dles of dress op­tions (head to page 134 to find The One that suits your bud­get), plus this is­sue we tack­led how to avoid re­cep­tion mishaps like drunk guests, muddy fields and loved ones go­ing AWOL (page 228). Barack Obama’s for­mer speech­writer even spilled his se­crets on how to nail that toast (page 217). As al­ways, we have so much more to say, and love hear­ing from you. Don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact us on social me­dia so we can chat in real time! Mean­while, pour your­self a glass of bub­bles, put those feet up and en­joy im­mers­ing your­self in the world of all things beau­ti­ful and bri­dal. ALEXIS TEAS­DALE, MAN­AG­ING EDITOR @ALEXISTEASDALE
