EDITOR’S NOTE

Wedding Bells (East) - - Contents - Ali­son McGill, Editor-in-Chief, @al­ison­m­cgill

There aren’t many who can say their job al­lows them to ex­plore their cre­ative self: it’s one of the main rea­sons #ilove­myjob. At Wed­ding­bells, our job is to in­spire you with pretty ideas, de­tails and dreams for the big­gest party of your life­time—and what fun we have do­ing it across the brand’s multi-plat­forms!

As you step into the world of wed­ding plan­ning, I bet you, too, are deep div­ing into your cre­ative self in ways you may have never done be­fore. That’s what makes the ex­pe­ri­ence so ex­hil­a­rat­ing ... and over­whelm­ing. Get­ting mar­ried in 2018 you are pos­i­tively spoiled for choice when it comes to all as­pects of your wed­ding: fash­ion, food, decor, venues, des­ti­na­tions, sweets and treats. We’ve got some of the best trends right here in this is­sue to get your ideas per­co­lat­ing.

For the fash­ion fea­tures this is­sue we are pro­fil­ing the best of Cana­dian bridal de­sign in the shoot “Made in Canada”

(p. 131), which took us on lo­ca­tion to the Fair­mont Em­press, one of Canada’s most iconic ho­tels. We’re also show­cas­ing dresses (and one jump­suit) that speak to brides of ev­ery fash­ion per­son­al­ity in “Ex­press Your­self” (p. 142).

Other favourites this is­sue in­clude the sweet, cit­rus-in­spired cake shoot (“Trop­i­cal Punch,” p. 94), our roundup of all the best trends from New York Bridal Fash­ion Week (“All Dressed Up,” p. 52), and a fun and fab­u­lous way to con­nect your fra­grance with your wed­ding flow­ers (“Fresh Bouquets,” p. 76).

Real wed­dings are al­ways a huge part of what brings us (and you) in­spi­ra­tion. This is­sue we have some stun­ning cel­e­bra­tions, in­clud­ing a very spe­cial one we planned with Toronto pho­tog­ra­pher Barb Simkova, who pho­tographed the en­tire wed­ding us­ing an iPhone 8 Plus. See how she beau­ti­fully cap­tured Kris­ten and Robert’s day (“iDo,” p. 100). As tech­nol­ogy evolves, more and more pho­tog­ra­phers are mix­ing up the tools they use to cap­ture im­pact­ful im­agery. We thought it would be fun to get cre­ative with some of the pho­tos this is­sue—our stun­ning cover im­age was also shot with an iPhone 8 Plus.

We al­ways love hear­ing from you and how we helped you plan your dream day. Find us @wed­ding­bells­mag!
